Make better fireworks pictures with compact tripods



It's almost the fourth of July and that means it's time for fireworks. Do you want to make better fireworks pictures? All you need is a way to keep your camera still and some tips on how to make the right exposures. In this Gadget Guy video I demonstrate an assortment of compact tripods that are easy to carry when you're headed to the big fireworks show. Also included are some tips for setting your camera to capture the action. Links to the featured tripods are below and one of them turns a standard soda bottle into a camera support. I'm not kidding! Check it out.
