The Novoflex Micropod is the "David" among compact tripods. Although it is very compact and weighs a mere 1.76 oz, it is strong enough to support a heavy mirror reflex camera. Three legs, which extend from the hemispherical base, push into unique "O" ring mounts. Ideal for use with Neiger 19 mini ballheads.

      Comments about Novoflex Micropod:

      I have intergrated this tripod with another. It is used to connect a tripod head to a tripod legset.A light weight tripod I own has resonable legs but the centre column and head were of poor quality so I removed them and put the micropod into the centre column slot then bolted a little tripod head on top. By making one up out of 3 I might have something that works.
      Quality craftpersonship. Resonably priced.
      I would prefer it if the legs were permanently attatched and pivoted.

          Very small and easy to bring everywhere. I added a Giotto MH-1304 ballhead to this tripod, and it even takes a pretty large DSLR with a midsize lens.

          Nice to have if you just need a simple tripod, and a lot easier than trying to level your camera on fences.

          Comments about Novoflex Micropod:

          I've had this tripod for several months now. When I first received it, I was apprehensive about the build quality. I had big concerns about the legs falling out since they are just held in place by rubber O-rings. They don't screw into the body. One just pulls out/pushes in each leg into the holes underneath for storage or the holes along the perimeter to deploy.

          The legs are smaller in diameter than the receiving holes and it just felt like each leg was going to fall out since only those small O-rings hold each of them in. But, after several months and many uses, I found that the legs stay put. I can neither shake them out or force them out when I hold the tripod up in the air and whack it with my other hand. In time, the O-rings may wear out, especially if dirt gets in the receiving holes and wears them down but I'm happy to report that a leg has never fallen out and there is no degradation in the rings so far.

          I love this tripod as it is incredibly sturdy after having played with a bunch of other ones. Almost every other one is pretty cheaply made and are miserable little things. I teamed it up with RRS's Ultra Light ball head for use with my compact and SLR. It doesn't flex during those times when moving the camera about when framing while there is drag on the ball head. This is the shortcoming of many lightweight tripods, in that everything moves when there is any sort of pressure on it.

          I settled on this one after diligent research. I use it less as a tabletop tripod and more of a travel tripod. Whether I'm in some foreign land or in the city walking about, I like to carry a tabletop tripod in my lumbar pack. I use it braced on my chest in order to gain a stop/get more depth of field when shooting.

          Previously, I used a Leica tripod and ball head. This is a super solid setup but quite heavy, especially the ball head. Also, the legs fold up into an awkward shape. I've passed this on to a friend as I'm much happier with the smaller and lighter Novoflex (with ball head: 8.3oz/236g!).

          Lastly, I also added an adaptor to convert the threads from 1/4-20 to 3/8-16. This is held in place with Threadlocker (the Red permanent type).
