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

    Well, I know this is for point and shoots, but it cannot carry much weight at all. I wish the springs were just a tad stiffer, It would be much more useful. My other gripe is that It covers my battery/sd cover so I cannot replace them without taking it off.

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

      They say the best camera you have is the one you have in your hand. This extends the pocket camera and makes great selfies possible -- no fuss at all. It's the thickness of two sticks of gum -- you barely notice it's there until you need to use it. Fabulous and stable like my big Manfrotto 055C but this Pocket model will always be with me...

        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.
