Pocket Tripod Perfect for Casual Photographers
January 10th, 2008
No, it doesn’t have three legs, so it’s not really a tripod, but it serves the same basic purpose. This ingenious little device screws into the tripod thread on the bottom of your camera, providing it with a stable platform for you to take impromptu photos from.
The Manfrotto 797 Modo Pocket camera mount is so tiny, that when folded up it fits easily on your keychain. The mini stand has a hinged design that lets you adjust the angle of your camera, as well as the ability to deal with angled surfaces. It’s got four tiny rubber feet to help stabilize your camera too.
Unfortunately, I haven’t found a place you can order these outside of France, but you might be able to get one shipped to you by Digit-Photo if you happen to Parlez-Vous Français. You also might want to check with B&H Photo, since they carry the Manfrotto line.
