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.

We've paired up with our friends at Lensbaby to bring you a fantastic giveaway to bring in the end-of-summer/beginning-of-fall season!  For two weeks you can enter to win MeFOTO's newest tripod, the DayTrip, in the color of your choice, paired with Lensbaby's latest lens, the Spark! You can enter the giveaway between now and October 4 and we will announce a winner on Monday, October 7.

Lensbaby's Spark Lens lets you control how much blur you would like in your photos and where. With a focal length of 50mm and focusing range of 13" to infinity you have a wide range of creative options when it comes to shooting. Simply move the adjustable lens in the direction you please to get the desired blur and squeeze/loosen the lens towards or away from you to focus. See the photos below for some examples on how you can use the Spark to enhance the vision for your photos.

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! 

**All the photos included in this blog post were taken with the Spark lens. 

Lensbaby has a few more artistic lenses including the Composer Pro which you can read about here.

Since Vine's launch, people have been getting uber creative when making their 6-second-or-less videos. Here are a couple of our favorites:
