      I attached this to a Canon Powershot S95. I used it far more than i would have guessed. everything from self/group shots to long exposures. very cool and practical concept.

        We have it mounted on our Canon G11 all the time. It is just what we wanted to have, a minitripod always available for self portraits/group shots or the rare long exposure shot when out and about without much gear. Easy to use and pretty stable.
        I don't think there's anything else availaqble which can so easily stay mounted on the camera all the time.

            This little tripod works as advertised. It is amazing how useful this is. We no longer need to flag down a waiter, or stranger, to take a picture when out and about.

            Comments about Manfrotto MP1-C01 Small Pocket Support (Black):

            We realized that we need to get into the pictures during our travels with our G12. This has allowed us to set up quickly on diner tables, ledges etc for a nice stable platform. It,s small and compact and we keep it on the camera all the time. It is possible to loosen the screw with a coin and turn it sideways on the camera to access the battery and SD card. It is nicely made and has a quality feel about it. It also goes unnoticed on the camera when not in use.

            One leg has slightly less tension and this only shows up on a very slick ie glass surface. The pads are good for anti-skid, but on a slick surface pushing down too hard on the shutter button may displace the foot slightly. Found the best way to set up is to keep the feet as straight up as possible then displace the camera downwards and allow them to splay into position. Of course the flip screen on the G12 works perfectly for this type of low tripod.

              Comments about Manfrotto MP1-C01 Small Pocket Support (Black):

              The best gizmo invented yet for the table top use with pocket cameras. it takes no space at all when folded. It is rock steady, the mounted camera does not move while pressing the shutter release, as it happens with all table tripods without exception. This device finally allows to use pocket cameras indoors when exposures time falls below 1/30 sec. Mini/ micro ball head is recommended though. It lifts the camera off the table level a bit and also allows aiming the camera in vertical angles. I took off one star, because the camera may tip over when used with the ball head. The device has three foldable support points in triangular setup. When camera is leaning toward the side with two far points, it tends to tip over. It can be fixed by re-orienting the camera 180 degrees to the other side with the central support point. This problem does not exist when camera is mounted directly to the gizmo.

                How you use the product:
                - taking group photos when camera is on timer.
                - Since the product is so compact, it is always attached to my compact camera.

                Things that are great about it:
                - Compact design
                - duroble
                - good quality

                Things that aren't so great about it:
                - None
