As always here at Mainlinephoto we are on the search for a better mousetrap and my goodness this time we have found one. The Uniqball from Hungary is well to coin a phrase, a game changer. First being highly sceptical we ordered some samples to test, yes they looked cool and seemed to do what it said. Then we got them out in the field photographing and whalespotting just to name a few trials we put them through. We came back amazed that it not only worked so well but that no one had thought of it before!
The UBH 35X in action
UniqBall is a revolutionary new type of ball head, combining all the attributes of a traditional ball head, a gimbal head, a pan & tilt head and a fluid head. It has all of the great advantages of these established heads but without any of the drawbacks.
And here’s the best bit, it has an integrated spirit leveler so you can always shoot with a perfectly straight horizon. Now that is something truly unique.

This great little product caught our attention sometime ago and we have now managed to get supply of the Swedish made Walkstools.
Once you have used one of these you will be going why didn’t I think of this. Not only is it really well made and very comfortable ( and we mean all day comfy) it packs up small and is lightweight. Perfect to simply be left in the car as a go to seat, or use it when shooting with a tripod not only is this more relaxing but as you lower the tripod you are more stable. More uses than a ferret and less smelly everyone deserves one. Tip the 55cm suits most folks.
Everybum needs one of these available now at Mainlinephoto.
Sirui tripods have been getting great reviews across the web. The best selling travel tripod the T-025 is tested in depth on the Pentax Forum here T-025X Review.
At just under 800 grams this is the go to travel tripod for the smaller camera set!
DP REVIEW gives the SIRUI T 2005X the heads up as best in class for an Alloy travel tripod, though we much prefer the carbon version the T-2205X due to its light weight and sexy feel.
The next model up in the Sirui tripods is the T-2205X and T-2204X which are good enough for a DSR and longer lens setup for serious photography while travelling.
The factory and HQ was pretty cool to see!
Sirui products are available at our online store open 24/7 Mainlinephoto.
We have been appointed the Australian Distributor for the SIRUI tripod range Sirui is a well know top quality brand in it’s home country China. It could be on of China’s best kept secrets. These are quality kit. As our customers know we do not sell anything we are not happy using ourselves. So now you can get that lightweight carbon fibre tripod you have always wanted at a fraction of the cost of the euro brands.
Highest quality manufacturing processes and materials with 6 year warranty!
The real winner of the range is the little travel tripod the T-025 which we just have to say is the ultimate travellers tripod for those like me who tend to leave theirs behind. This 600 gram wonder folds to 30cm yet extends to 130cm! So there is no excuse for not having a stable support to hand now. It comes with a beautiful matching ballhead that will take upto 6kg. All for only $195.00
Destined for great things off the beaten track….
Absolutely perfect for Micro Four Thirds cameras, the Fuji x100, Leica M8 & M9 etc… Great with compact video cameras as the ballhead has a separate pan control. We have even used it with our DSLR’s. Try one for 14 days and if your not convinced it’s worth every gram of it’s measly weight send it back for a full refund! Comes with one plate and carry bag.
