One of my favourite pieces of travel gear is my Manfrotto Tripod, so when they contacted us to name The Planet D one of the best travel blogs they follow, you can imagine what a honour it was. I’ve been using them for years and we always tell people to use them whenever we write a gear list post here on the website.
Manfrotto featured three other super websites that they consider the best travel blogs who jet off to some of the most exotic locations in the world. We are honoured to be a part of them. NIEDblog, superduperfantastic and As we travel. You should check out their travel blogs for great photography and adventures too!
They featured several of everyones photos, so make sure that you head over to the Manfotto blog for the entire slide show. Here’s a sneak peak from us.
Manfrotto’s best travel blogs
The Manfrotto 732CY M-Y Carbon Tripod with the Manfrotto 494RC2 Ball Head is the perfect combination for a travel blogger. We carry a lot of equipment, so it is important to keep the gear that I do bring with me on my round the world travels as light as possible. This tripod is definitely lightweight yet sturdy and durable too.
It served me well when taking HDR photography, time lapse photography, long exposures at night and in dark and crowded caverns and caves. It’s been put through the wringer and it has seen better days. It’s time to upgrade to one of their 055 pro series tripod soon as one of the clamps of it’s legs have broken off and it is on the verge of toppling over every time I use it. Yes, the gear takes a licking when traveling with Dave and Deb, but the Manfrotto lasted through 7 continents and countless countries. If it can endure bumping over the tough roads of Kazakhstan and Mongolia, it can survive nearly anything.
So thank you Manfrotto for naming us one of the best travel blogs on your website, it’s a huge honour for us. Photography is my passion and to be recognized by a company that knows photography and that I use myself has made my day!
