      Great idea!

      Comments about Small POCKET Tripod for Compact Cameras (Black):

      Small, light, and very useful for quick self-timer shots on a small camera. This would work mostly on compact pocket cameras, but also on small mirror less cameras with a short lens (so as not to unbalance it).

            Comments about Small POCKET Tripod for Compact Cameras (Black):

            I bought this to use with my Lumix LX-3 camera. I don't want a tripod and figured this would be useful for self portraits or long exposure as well as bracketed exposures. The only thing I wonder about is the keyring sized locking screw tool. Mine didn't come with one and I am not sure if it is supposed to. I will have to contact Manfrotto about that.

              Comments about Small POCKET Tripod for Compact Cameras (Black):

              Coming from a previous version of the Manfrotto Pocket series—Manfrotto Modopocket—this is a dream. Its slim profile sits nicely on your camera (currently on a Nikon AW110) and does not add much bulk to the camera so leaving it on is not an issue. Having three independently adjustable legs as opposed to my older one's 4 rubber feet makes this very sturdy and capable of adapting to more terrain. It is easily adjustable and the tension is steady on the folding legs thanks to spring tensioners in the pivots. I was a little concerned when I opened the package as the tripod felt like it was made of a plastic composite but it is actually made of a zinc/magnesium alloy. The ¼-20 screw is solid and it attaches firmly to your camera—with a long slot for side-to-side adjusting if your socket isn't centred—with a little help from a coin. I have used it on flat surfaces and not-so-flat surfaces with ease. I have yet to see how it holds up to underwater use but I will update if I can when that happens. I would totally recommend this to anyone who wants a sturdy, go-anywhere, with-you-all-the-time mini tripod for their P&S. It offers incredible value for the price.
