        Comments about Giottos Compact Ball-Pod Tripod with Case (Titanium):

        I use this product to hold my Lumix FZ100 digital camera. A non-DSLR, it is fairly light in weight and sports a wonderful Leica formula lens. As such, I use it as my main camera, and this mini tripod is easy to pack and allows elegant low level photos of botanical subjects. Often I equip the camera with a +2 close-up lens, and the results are nothing short of stunning.

          Comments about Giottos Compact Ball-Pod Tripod with Case (Titanium):

          This was more or less the type of 3-legger I was looking for. Its very small and compact and it will do great for any Compact Camera. My Camera features 18x Optic zoom works best for something that requires stability and zoom. Beware though as "tipping" does occur if not properly balanced on the tri itself. You can damage a good camera. Overall I'd gives this a thumbs up for being so affordable and such useful tool.

              Even with the dimensions and pictures, the small size and light weight shocked me when I first opened this package! The tripod is perfect to fit into a shirt pocket and perfectly sturdy. This is one great bang for the buck!

                    Love this tripod! Very small and lightweight enough to just throw in a bag (Thank God for the included case) This tripod is amazing for the value and its performance.

                      Needed a compact tripod with universal head for travels with a mini digital camcorder and small DSLR. This Giotto works well and is sufficiently strong to handle 3 or 4 lbs. Small enough to carry in rear pocket without too much notice. Ball head locks up tight with little creep. Extremely light and rapid setup.
