Summer Travelers Will Never Miss a Memory Again with ZipShot® — the World’s Most Portable Tripod
Lightweight, Collapsible Tripod Sets Up in Seconds, Allowing Anyone to Bring it Along and Get the
Perfect Shot

CHATSWORTH, Calif.–Now everyone can capture the perfect sunset shot, or take a family photo with everyone in it! ZipShot®, the world’s most portable tripod, springs open in seconds and makes it easy for travelers to capture the memories from their summer trips. Developed and marketed by Tamrac, the leader in camera cases and photography accessories, ZipShot is an ultra-light, ultra-compact tripod weighing
just 11 ounces and folding to 15 inches, making it easy for anyone to bring along on their summer
vacation this year.

There are many situations where having a tripod is essential for a great shot: the fleeting photo opportunity as the sun sets over the water, the hummingbird that hovers for just a few moments, or the group photo with everyone in it. Until now, most travelers have chosen to leave bulky, heavy tripods at home. ZipShot’s small form factor and light weight make it the perfect travel solution. Its legs spring open in seconds to a height of 44 inches to support DSLRs weighing up to three pounds, point-and-shoot cameras and camcorders. The compact size makes it easy to pack in a carry-on suitcase, backpack, or purse, making ZipShot this season’s must-have travel accessory.

Every time I return from an adventure and am dissatisfied with my photos, it’s because I didn’t use a tripod. But until recently, I haven’t wanted to add another bulky piece of equipment to the laundry list of things we bring on family vacations,” said Steve Werner, president of Werner Publishing. “That’s changed. I’ve been able to carry ZipShot in my backpack, on my dirtbike and on skis. Now, we can hop off the ski lift, set up in seconds, and take a great picture of our whole party.”

ZipShot is available for purchase at, Sears, Ritz Camera, B&H and independent photo shops worldwide. The product retails at an MSRP of $59.99. For a list of authorized dealers visit:
