This Prototype Camera Tripod is Designed to be Used One-Handed

This Prototype Camera Tripod is Designed to be Used One-Handed Tripods are often designed for stability rather than ease of use, which can make operating them a slow and complicated process. Traditional tripods are also often difficult to set up with one hand. The London-based product designer who goes by the name Product Tank decided to try his hand at inventing a tripod that’s friendlier to use. What he came up with is this clever prototype that can easily be expanded, adjusted, and collapsed with a single hand. The prototype is about the same size and weight as a standard tripod. Near the top is a central hand grip with separate controls for...

From observers on Earth, it shows up as bright spots on either side of the sun, and often a bright glowing ring around the sun, called a 22° halo. Jeroen Schrage of Leeuwarden, The Netherlands, was skiing in the mountains of Muhlbach am Hochkonig in Austria last year when he was treated to a beautiful sun dogs display in the sky. The ski instructor was carrying a GoPro HERO3 Black with him, so he managed to capture...
