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.

Composed of aircraft-grade aluminum and anodized a matte black, the Copter supports up to 2.5 lb and weighs only 0.6 lb.

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.

        I bought this for a sturdy flash holder or DSLR tripod. It is quite sturdy, and the ball head is good, but not bombproof for a camera.

          This is a great travel tripod. It feels very sturdy since it is all aluminum. It's a little on the heavy side for something so small. It's able to support my 70D with a Sigma 18-35 and a 580ex II flash.

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

                    I confess I love tripods and camera supports of all kinds, and have more than I truly "need." I wanted to get a table tripod to use both with a bridge-type point and shoot camera and also with a small, lightweight spotting scope. If the mini tripod, coupled with a small ballhead, could also be used as a chest pod with a DSLR/telephoto combination, all the better.

                    I previously owned the venerable Leica table tripod, and of course, that is a terrific product. But I just cannot justify the cost of getting another one. This Cullman product seemed to be sturdy enough for my purposes while also being quite affordable.

                    I have been very satisfied with the Cullman Mini Tripod. The build quality is excellent, and it folds down into a pocketable compact kind of cylinder. It comes with a tiny, removable ballhead (not all table tripods allow you to remove the head). The camera platform (tiny) is reversible, with a flash shoe on the reverse side. I use the Arca system, so I actually purchased a very cheap mini ballhead with an Arca clamp, and this combination works quite well.

                    Overall, this product is well-designed, well-made, fairly priced, and it seems durable (so far). Recommended.

                      While reading reviews of another small tripod, this one was mentioned. Looked it up and decide this was the way to go. It is very sturdy and the ball head works great. Heavier than what you would think, but not a negative for me.

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

                      I bought this tripod to supplement a larger, full sized one. It has proved to be very useful, and can handle more weight than advertised. I can mount a 5d3 with 50l and it will support it effortlessly. But my 1d with 24-70 can't be supported by the ballhead, and I never expected it to. I just wish the plate on the ballhead had a rubber liner or grommet of some sort to keep it seated to the camera, otherwise would've been a 5-star rating.

I'm very impressed with the functionality; it's rock-solid with my 5DIII + 24-105L, the ball head is very useful, and can be used as a pistol grip when desired. I primarily use it for video, and it is only limited by your creativity. A must-have product.

                                I use this mainly with my M43 cameras (EM10 and G3) and fold the tripod down - I then grip this tripod instead of the camera so it makes shooting video easier. I also use it to mount my flash when I want to do off camera flash. It feels substantial and well built. I like how I can unscrew the pivoting ball head to make the tripod shorter. I expect to use this when I pick up a GoPro to shoot handheld POV.

                                  i mainly bought this tripod bacause im always going on rooftops and doing skyline photography and sometimes abandoned areas with my dslr bringing my regular trid became too much espcially since i have a history of back problems and i honestly didnt know what to buy..i just wanted something small and that obviously hold my semi-pro level pentax Dslr...at 1st i was going to get the manfrotto mini tripod but did not like how it held the camera and didnt now feel reliable...but with this mini-tripod i had no issues cause the way it tightens the ball head its like my regular tripod and it super tight even with my heavy sigma 10-20 3.5 lens on the camera...i also love that the legs have rubber feet which also comes in handy when placing it on a weird angled rooftop ledge and/or rock on a beach/park. i would totally recommend this mini tripod..its abit pricey but its well worth it. truth is i already know a couple of friends who love borrowing mine and want to buy so no need to recommend it haha..

                                    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.

                                    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..

                                      I foresee so many uses for this, so far its great. Its very sturdy and easy to use. Its small it can fit in any camera bag and you could use it as a monopod.

                                        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.

                                          Easy to carry, and it's heavy and stable enough that I don't worry about using with my T3i - even with a heavier lens.

                                            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.
