Emergency use only

  • Excerpt: Certainly small and light, and barely noticeable - unless you have to take the card or battery out, because it covers the door in the folded position.<br /><br />With the tripod deployed the camera is one inch above the surface the tripod rests on. The degree of adjustment for surface irregularity is OK for fairly straight surfaces such as walls.<br /><br />However, a Nikon 1 with 10-30 lens is not very stable.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Lightweight
  • Cons: Unstable

Really clever idea

  • Excerpt: I got this for my Olympus OM-D and it's a great little idea. Folds away under camera and you forget about it. Then, when need some extra stability, or want a timed shot, out it folds.<br /><br />I wouldn't get it for anything bigger than a CSC camera though... but for CSC cameras it's great. Only issue is the tripod socket is taken - which means can't combine with a black rapid style strap.
  • Pros: Compact, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight

  • Excerpt: I keep this in the small pocket of my P&amp;S camera case. It is super stable and is great for shooting video clips where I want real steadiness.

The best mini P&amp;S tripod I have used.

  • Excerpt: It's small, lightweight and adjustable. The only drawback is that it has limited adjustment but that's the cost of compactness. If you're looking for a small, compact yet sturdy platform for your P&amp;S, this is it.
  • Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement

Little product that is easily tranported

  • Excerpt: I have no negative comments for this tripod. It is the only I have ever purchased of its sort, however. It is nice and compact and I can even store my camera in its case with it attached. It is quite inconspicuous when its folded up and isn't any bother to me when it is attached but not in use. It has an excellent tilt radius for how small it is and seems to stay put on peculiar surfaces.

tiny but functional

  • Excerpt: This is a great little tripod. It won't hold even a small DSLR, but for a larger P&amp;S or a lightweight camcorder, it works well. It packs in virtually no space and sets up very easily. My guess is that the tension to hold a camera in place might lessen after lots of use, but I have not yet experienced this. A very smart design. Priced a little high for what is consists of, but I'm still glad I bought it.

Keyword: Micro

  • Excerpt: I hadn't seen this in a store, so I didn't realize how small it was. It truly is micro...<br />Overall the construction is good, it seems really well made. The orbiting head is sort of nice too. I bought a hot shoe mount to put on here to hold a speedlite. It seems to handle the weight of it, but when you orbit the head to its extents, the height of the speedlite makes it want to tip over. This is easily fixed by rotating the legs to provide added balance.

Be prepared, anytime!

  • Excerpt: This little tripod fits into the tripod screw mount on the bottom of most digital cameras.<br />It swivels away from the base by simply unfolding the three legs. The camera can be placed on almost any surface, by positioning the legs, allowing you to have a hands free support, especially if you can use your point and shoot cameras's self-timer mode. No more ruined shots because you don't have a tripod!
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Strong Construction
  • Cons: None
