So this is different for me. A table top tripod. I am always on the lookout for something a minimalist can use and this sure as hell is it. If you do not carrying a tripod or monopod because of the size and weight but at times you need a support for a great macro shot or a shot that will include you where you are then this is it. It is the first adjustable mini I have seen and it really is working well for a Fuji Xt-1 and zoom lens.
