5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for small cameras, 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Manfrotto PIXI Mini Tripod - Black (Electronics)
Very smart looking and, unlike a lot of table-top tripods, this one places the camera well above the ground, making it very useful for use outdoors. Designed for smaller cameras, such as Micro Four Thirds and the like. Easy to carry around, and can easily be slid over a trouser belt. Ball and socket head very ingenious but doesn't allow the camera to be mounted in portrait mode (not a problem for me). One drawback, which may be only applicable to my Panasonic G1, is that the rubber on the ball and socket head does not grip the camera base very well. I have solved this by removing the rubber washer and screwing my Manfrotto quick-release plate directly to the ball and socket head. Attaching a quick-release plate is not what most people would do, I admit, but it it works and the tripod is still stable, at least with a small camera attached - full size DSLRs would be another matter. I use the quick-release plate also on my monopod and my full size tripods.
