Know a dynamic, photo-obsessed Mom? This Mother's Day thrill her with one of these vibrant gift ideas:

1. Give Her an Extra Hand

The SideKick360 SmartPhone Adapter gets Mom's smartphone out of her hands and lets her join the action. With a tripod-friendly base and a rotating 360° ball joint, this handy adapter quickly switches from vertical to horizontal and locks in any position making it ideal for capturing both photo and video. I love it for it's ability to stand alone on any surface. Perfect for my daughter's impromptu Facebook chats with Grandma!

Available in 12 Colors. What's her favorite?

Our smallest tripod kit weighs less than 2 lb. and folds up shorter than an IPad! Mom can easily pop it into her favorite backpack, messenger or even diaper bag. Perfect for street photography, that special Mother's Day excursion or any time she's on the go.

3. Put a Rainbow in Her Wallet

Mom's who covet color and are never without their IPhones will love Photojojo's Phone-o-Chrome full spectrum color filter for those special IPhone shots.

Steve Huff Gives MeFOTO a Thumbs Up!

  by Domenick Delfino       Category Reviews, Giveaway, Featured Photographer       Tags MeFOTO, DayTrip, MeFOTO DayTrip, MeFOTO Backpacker, RoadTrip, MeFOTO RoadTrip, Steve Huff, giveaway, tripod, photography, Review, MeFOTO Giveaway, MeFoto review Steve Huff Gives MeFOTO a Thumbs Up!

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.

Vanessa Joy's DayTrip

  by Rachel       Category Reviews       Tags MeFOTO DayTrip, Venssa Joy, shooting on the go

We sent our friend Vanessa Joy a DayTrip to test out. As a MeFOTOgrapher, Vanessa is already a MeFOTO user but, being as small as it is, the DayTrip is that tripod she can bring anywhere, especially if she's shooting on-the-go. 

"The DayTrip is my ideal tripod for engagement sessions because I'm usually shooting alone and don't want any heavy, bulky gear to drag along with me. With this tripod, I can easily grab video shots for use in my fusion slideshow later or get some long exposures during twilight. Top that off with rose-colored accents that match my other MeFOTO gear and I'm set!" - Vanessa

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
