Here’s a quick tip that might get you out of a bind one day. Wrap a small amount of duct tape around the leg of your tripod so that you’ve got a couple of feet of it to use in emergencies. You can use it to mend a broken tripod in the field, fix camping gear, camera bags, studio softboxes, lightstands and so much more!




I use the Gorilla Tape brand myself, but any generic brand will do the trick as long as it doesn’t leave too much glue residue. I find that Gorilla Tape stuff is really easy to roll up and peel off over and over again without losing sticking power, so that’s why it gets my vote!
