More and more of us are enjoying using a small camera/video camera when out hiking to record the day and sometimes a useful, stable, light and flexible tripod is just what we are missing

Enter this little beauty. Small enough to fit in the same waist pouch as the camera and light enough not to make you feel guilty, this folding tripod will allow you to fit your camera, adjust the angle via a ball socket and pop it on top of the trig point, for the group shot or a long exposure.

But one of the key features is the Velcro strap, which enables you to strap it to a walking pole, a fence post, tree or whatever is around, for extra versatility and stability. Although this is useful for photography, I find it more useful for video, as it saves having to carry a larger tripod, and it gets rid of all those 'feet walking away from the camera' shots.

I've used it with the Canon G9 which is a pretty heavy compact camera and it was solid. The adjuster is also useable wearing gloves. Which helps!

Some flash units, have the same thread on the base and so, this provides another use for the stand, allowing you to angle the fill light where you want it to be.

Useful, light and reliable.

I bought the stand to use my camera on a walking stick and it works absolutely wonderful. It is small and weighs almost nothing so it is always with the backpack. It is a three-leg stand with tilt swivel so it is really steady on any surface. A super product simply that everyone should have with you on tour to photograph and film.
