Welcome to The Center Column

This site is dedicated to providing quantitative data on tripod stability.  This is to both help inform purchasing decisions and and to understand what techniques get the most out of the tripods that we have.  The terminology used here is precise and refers to specific aspects of tripod motion.  See the glossary for clarification.







The Center Column is supported through the affiliate links found throughout the site.  By clicking on the links to make your gear purchases, a small portion of the sale is received by the site.  100% of the proceeds go towards the purchase and rental of additional tripods for testing.  Thank you for your support,
