How is a tripod used?
Tripods are used for both motion and still photography to prevent camera movement and provide stability. They are especially necessary when slow-speed exposures are being made, or when telephoto lenses are used, as any camera shake while the shutter is open will produce a blurred image.
Do I need a camera tripod?
You don’t actually need a tripod. You can set your camera on the ground, or on a bag of rice, or a pile of books. The important thing is that you are not in contact with it at the time the shutter fires. So not only do you need to stabilise it, but you also need to use either a cable release, or the self timer.
Do all tripods fit all cameras?
What Makes Camera Tripods Universal? Almost all modern tripods have a 1/4 inch thread on which you would mount a camera. Almost all consumer and prosumer cameras also have a 1/4 inch female thread, which technically means that all cameras can be mounted on all tripods.
What is a tripod best used for?

What is the thread for a camera tripod?
Per ISO 1222:2010, the current tripod bolt thread standard for attaching the camera calls for a 1/4-20 UNC or 3/8-16 UNC thread. Most consumer cameras are fitted with 1/4-20 UNC threads.
Where do you mount a webcam?
The webcam needs to be placed in front of you, and near the same height as your face while sitting. The best location to mount the webcam is at the top of your computer monitor. Most webcams sit on top of a monitor, having an adjustable clamp that braces itself against the back of the monitor to secure the webcam.
