This model of the pod is awesome and by far the best made one yet ..I could not believe the build quality of this and it looks like you could throw it off a bridge and it would still work ! I bought this for a large Canon with a 200mm lens and it never even looked like it was straining and of course it is so useful for any size and weight .
Why bother with a small one when a bigger one covers the whole range from a point and shoot to a big ass camera, even a video camera ! :) Of course in order to have a more versatile pod you really do need to add the JOBY swivel head (as my one in picture ) because without this the pod is a bit pants :(
I can fully recommend this one for all your camera needs
