A new company called Gearing has produced a tripod that could be described as the most modular system on the market. From being a tabletop tripod it can be built up to being a full-sized travel tripod. Not only that, if the occasion calls for it you can even use the tripod legs as ski sticks for those slopes that you come across during your travels.
In a recent video, Anete and I review the debut tripod system from a relatively new company called Gearing. The family that owns the business is better known for producing tripods for rifles. With the experience they garnered in that industry, they developed the company Gearing with the aim of producing a super high-end modular tripod system.
The build quality of the tripod is exceptional with the majority of it being made of carbon fiber. Despite it being a travel tripod, the system does offer a great deal of stability. This is predominantly down to the fact that the tripod stands with a wider stance. Although, some may not like the fact that this tripod system has a wider than conventional stance.
What's most interesting about this tripod system is just how modular it is. You can start with it being a tabletop tripod and build it up to being a full-sized tripod. Gearing aims to flesh out its system by offering a wide range of different kinds of tripod legs and accessories to further increase the system's potential. As of right now, the tripod can be purchased from certain Leica stores in the U.K. and directly from the website for about £924 or around $1,300.
