The Cullmann Magnesit Copter Mini Tripod with CB-2 Mini Ball Head doubles as a tabletop tripod and as a handheld support for a DSLR, point & shoot, or compact camcorder. The legs are rounded on their outer side, so the closed tripod provides a comfortable hand grip. When folded open, the tripod & head sit 6.5" high on a table or other flat surface.

The included CB-2 Mini Ball Head features a reversible mount: on one side is a standard 1/4"-20 camera screw, and on the other is a shoe mount for mounting an off-camera flash, LED panel, or other compatible accessory. The single knob of the head enables both the ball positioning and the pan movement.

      Was recommended this tripod by Dave Dugdale's YouTube channel. It easily supports my Canon 6D with Tamron 24-70mm VC (a pretty heavy combo). It fits easily in my bags or pocket. It's built solid and all the parts are very high quality. The thread can be quickly reverse to be a cold shoe socket for a speedlite flash. And when it's unmounted, it looks like a lightsaber - which is awesome. All around great product.

      Only gripe I have is I've found it useful as a mini monopod/pistol grip (awesome) but it seems one of the legs is a bit loose and gravity takes it out of it's folded position when using it as a mini monopod. This is a little bit frustrating when maneuvering it around into various positions but not a huge deal. You just have to hold it with your hand until you have it rested on something level. I will try tightening a screw I see down there but not sure that's what's creating the desired friction. Would give it 4.5 stars for this. But I'll round up considering the price.

      Dave introduced the idea of using it to slide a DSLR. I've had some success with this but it really depends on the surface it seems. It's nowhere near as useful as a real slider (obviously) but you can most definitely achieve sliding shots across smooth surfaces, which is a major plus! And it's so quick to setup and get sliding as opposed to a cumbersome real slider.

      If this was misplaced, I'd buy another in a heartbeat.

      My previous Cullmann products were German-made, and had a nice build quality. This one is (now) made in China and, while it serves the purpose for a pocket camera support, the build is pretty so-so. When the legs are splayed out to their stops, the center piece is very noticeably out of plumb and one of the legs sits unevenly on the surface.

        Use this with my second camera while on recent visit to Mansfield Reformatory. Gave different perspective down low and while sitting on other items, like table or chair.

        Comments about Cullmann Magnesit Copter Mini Tripod with CB-2 Mini Ball Head:

        I make Vlog videos on YouTube with a canon T3i and a gopro black edition. This table top tripod is great for this. It holsd my t3i and I can aim the lens at me with the ball head is comes with (removable) with no problems. It's never slipped on me. When I want to go handheld I take the ball head off and put the gopro on it to Vlog while moving around. This thing is so sturdy and strong. My absolute favorite part about this little thing is that it fits right in my pocket. (Cargo shorts side pocket) I think this thing is a great buy and definitely gets the best bang for your buck..

            Comments about Cullmann Magnesit Copter Mini Tripod with CB-2 Mini Ball Head:

            I use this primarily for off-camera flash while doing macro. It's compact and robust. It holds my flash at just about any angle I want it without tipping over. While I haven't used the camera itself on the tripod, I've tested it and it holds the camera just as well. Recommended for those needing a small and light mini tripod for travel, macro, and just about anything else.

                This is a handy gadget! I put it in my pocket and off I go with my 70D! I can be in a restaurant or on a smooth or not so smooth table or column top outdoors and there is a cool video pan!!! smooth as silk! Just hold 2 legs with the tips of your fingers and slide! I also us it to place my microphone when narrating.

                  I was surprised at the quality of this product when I opened the box. I haven't had it too long, but it feels and looks like it's made well, which is rare these days. The box says "Germany", not sure if this is the country of manufacture, but I like it. It's small enough you can put it in your front pocket (with it sticking out) if needed to carry around.

                            My previous Cullmann products were German-made, and had a nice build quality. This one is (now) made in China and, while it serves the purpose for a pocket camera support, the build is pretty so-so. When the legs are splayed out to their stops, the center piece is very noticeably out of plumb and one of the legs sits unevenly on the surface.

                                Not only can I use it as a pistol grip, but the rubber feet make it so that I can slide it across a table and get great slide cam shots. Sturdy and solid, this is a must have for the videographer/Photographer on the go!

                                  I bought this little mini tripod for traveling. It's perfect for my needs. Small enough to fit inside my camera bag and super light to carry. It's also really sturdy as well. I can mount my Canon T3i with battery pack and my heaviest lens which is a Tamron 24-70 with no problems. I've also used it as a slider (on flat surfaces) thanks to the rubberized ends on each leg. The build is solid and it's a good quality product. Just an all around great addition to my camera gear! If you are on the fence about buying this product, rest assured that you are buying something that is well made and will last you forever ....you won't regret it!!

                                    This thing can support my Sony A77 with a 24-70mm ZA or 135mm ZA, but can fold up to something that can fit in my laptop bag. I wanted something that was smaller than a Joby and this did the trick.

                                      When I work with the camera, it is very useful, no shaking and good to zoom with (panasonic FZ200 / Sony DSC HX200V)

                                        When I am on the go and forgot to bring a tripod with me for quick street photography, this comes in handy! It can support the weight of my Canon
                                        5D Mark III with no problem at all. The adapter on the ball mount is reversible and turns into a hotshoe mount. Also for interviews, I use it for my Rode Mic for up close vocals.

                                          A bit pricy for a small tripod.... but built like a tank. I used it at the Detroit Auto show recently. It works good as a very stable tripod, but even better as a extender to hold and get my camera high above the crowd.

                                            This product is well built. Has no problem supporting my Nikon D3200 with 18-55mm lens. Works great as a monopod for a little extra stability.
