A portable lightweight tripod that folds up small enough to toss in a coat pocket and versatile enough to position a camera in almost any angle. This tripod works great for getting that group shot on a summit without having to balance the camera on a rock.
- Universal camera mount
- Can be difficult to mount on smaller diameters
Have you ever tried to get that group shot with everyone after a long hike or after reaching the summit of a mountain and can't because you are not able to balance the camera in the right position? I bought this tripod almost solely for that reason. This mini tripod mounts to any camera with a universal mount and works great with point and shoot cameras.
The product folds down to about 1 x 4 inches and tucks easily into a coat or pack pocket.
When needed, the legs can be folded out for setting on a rock, log or on the ground. The legs have vinyl feet which are pretty grippy and keep them from sliding.
The tripod also has a "rip and stick" strapping that allow it to be mounted on a branch or a trekking pole. However, it does take some effort to get the tripod mounted on smaller diameter items.
The UltraPod I is a small, lightweight portable camera tripod, injection molded from fiberglass reinforced nylon with aluminum threaded components. It features sturdy, fold-out legs, a unique ball and socket camera mount assembly, and a strong Velcro strap for securing to tree limbs, railings, pack frames, or other similar objects. Folds to a compact 4″ length that fits easily into a shirt pocket. The feet of the UltraPod are covered with non-slip vinyl, preventing the tripod from moving. Designed for use with compact cameras, remote flashes, video lights, etc.
