Small and light are what this tripod is all about. The Slik Mini is an excellent and affordable table-top tripod. It has a maximum height of 8 inches and can hold up to 2.5 lbs with its high impact plastic 2-way head built in. So it can be carried in your camera bag all the time and you always have tripod support at hand.
Besides its traditional use as a tripod, the Slik Mini series has two other great features, as a chest pod and wall brace camera support.
To use it as a chest pod, first loosen the locking collar around the centre column, raise the centre column at least one inch and tighten. Then, with the legs spread, place the feet of the legs against your upper chest. Loosen the tripod head and position the camera so you can see through the viewfinder comfortably. This will better stabilize the camera and help avoid image degrading camera shake.
The bottom of the center column has a suction cup, which can be used to mount the Slik Mini on a clean smooth surfaces, including windows. It has a one-year guarantee.
