  • Excerpt: This Table Top Tripod is very easy to use. It is small but very solid and sturdy. I tested it on my camera with battery grip on it, mounted big lens, with flash attached (a good 4.7 lbs), NO shake, it holds tight, NO problem at all.

  • Excerpt: Are you tiered of balancing your SLR on a bag, sticks, or just the table for a long exposure? <br /><br />Well this Bogen-Manfrotto Tabletop Tripod is your awnser. <br /><br />I do alot of shoots in dark bars, and restraunts. I usely end up balancing my SLR using my phone, or bag, or hold it between my knees for those 1/2 second and longer exposures.
