I've been looking for a small tripod to use for those times when I have the camera down in the weeds and have trouble hand holding it while trying to compose/focus/trip the shutter/not fall over. I considered a beanbag and rejected it. I looked at the segmented Gorillapod and decided against it. I looked hard at a small tabletop tripod (both with and without a ballhead) and… nope. So then I discovered the Joby Gorillapod Micro 800. It's a small tabletop tripod, but unlike the others that are very short it has a built in ball that allows up to 36° of adjustment. Hey! This looks promising! So I ordered one. It arrived in the mail today. Here's the clamshell package. It's held closed with tape so it opens very easily. This is the bottom, folded view. And the top, folded view. And it looks like this opened up. The legs rotate around the ball. And these two shots show the range of movement of the ball. Sorry for the pic quality of the rest of these, I had to use the phone since my wife had her camera with her. Opened up and supporting the camera. Folded against the bottom of the camera. And finally a couple of shots with the L-bracket attached (like it usually is) to the camera and the Micro 800 attached to that. The cool part is it will mount in either portrait or landscape mode. This is a keeper. Small, light, compact, and it allows some adjustment. And it's only $20.
