This Giottos QU 305B convertible mini tripod can be used either as a tabletop tripod, or as a mini or handheld monopod. The short extension column can be removed from the tripod legs, which allows for a minimum working height of only 4.6". With the extension column connected, a height of 16.2" is achieved, with a respectable load capacity of 11 lbs.
The included MH-1004 Mini Ballhead features an independent pan bed, and offers weight support to accommodate most 35mm or digital cameras.
