Over the past couple of months, Steve Huff has reviewed the MeFOTO DayTrip, BackPacker, and RoadTrip.  Despite openly admitting that he is not generally a huge fan of tripods for his photography due to the hassle of lugging them around, he loved ours!

Steve instantly fell in love the with MeFOTO DayTrip upon his first encounter and immediately wanted to learn more about these “small and tiny wonders” as he liked to call them.  But, what caused this immediate attraction?  He fell for the design, colors, and “teeny” size/ease of use.  The size of the DayTrip allows you to take it with you anywhere you go.  For more product specifications, please click here.

Overall, Steve thought all three tripods are very nice, very well made, and VERY affordable tripods that are designed extremely well, lightweight, easy to carry, and easy to work with.  He highly recommends them.

Don’t forget to participate in the Steve's MeFOTO Tripod giveaway.  Read to the end of Steve's review for a chance to win a MeFOTO DayTrip.

With a new season in full swing, what better time to spruce up your closet and photo gear with a new bag and tripod? Jo Totes offers a vibrant and fashionable selection of bags for your photo gear that can also be used as everyday tote bags. With eight styles to choose from and tons of colours, there's bound to be a bag for you or that special photographer in your life. The DayTrip is a bite sized tripod that folds down to 9.4" and weighs less than two pounds, making it the perfect tripod to bring on exactly that...a day trip! With this giveaway you can win the DayTrip in whichever of its eight colours you please plus the Jo Totes bag of our choice! Enter for your chance to win below.

MeFOTO got a chance to review the 'Betsy' bag which fits the DayTrip tripod plus a full-body DSLR and extra lense perfectly. My first impression of the bag was how cheerful the rich, yellow hue of the leather was. It comes with velcro inserts that you can adjust to fit your gear in and two different sizes of strap. I chose the shorter one since I prefer to carry my gear under my arm vs across-body.

The Betsy has a separate laptop sleeve and will fit up to a 13" laptop and/or iPad.

The Betsy measures 11" high x 15.5" wide x 4" deep.

There are two front pockets with magnetic closures which comes in handy when you need to get things out quickly. Additionally the front flap is zippered doubling as a super large pocket. 

The Betsy bag is available in four different colours, take a look all Jo Tote's fashionable camera bags here

Putting the Spark lens together with our MeFOTO DayTrip allows you to stabilize your camera when squeezing the lens to get the correct amount of blur and focus.

A tripod also comes in handy when it comes to longer exposures, macro photography and self-timed photos.

Both are excellent additions to any camera bag and now you have the opportunity to win them both!

Nicolesy's DayTrip: Not Just Cutesy

  by Rachel       Category Reviews       Tags Nicole Young, Nicolesy, DayTrip

Our friend Nicole Young, founder of Nicolesy, a quirky and quaint website where Nicole shares her photography knowlege as well as sells post-processing tools & her eBooks. Nicole also publishes frequently in her blog and just posted a review of a DayTrip we sent out to her. 

Nicole says: 

If you’re looking for a very small, simple and compact tripod to use on short day trips, or just something to have in your car or luggage “just in case” you happen to need a tripod, then this is a great option for you. I’ve been carrying this around in my car for those moments I have a camera (most likely my Fuji x100s) and happen to come across something that requires a tripod. It’s a good tripod to stick in your bag/backpack/purse/diaper bag and carry with you everywhere you and your camera will go.
