Mini tripods have dramatically improved in terms of their performance and usefullness over the last 20 years. Product innovations as the result of consumer feedback is a big part of the improvement.

Photographers providing feedback, both through customer surveys and particularly social media, have pressured manufacturers and designers to improve the performance of cameras, lenses, and related accessories.

Lengthy product reviews on retail sites like Amazon give valuable feedback to sellers.

Size really matters. The difference between a true mini tripod and a Gorilla Mini Tripod. You can use your mini tripod for a cell phone camera, for holding a microphone, or even  a video light.

where to buy your mini tripod

I use Adorama and Amazon, but there are a bazillion places to shop for your own mini tripod. You can use your on-line favorite or buy from a traditional brick and mortar location. 

If you buy online, you have a whole lot more choices.

I do recommend you use Amazon to read the reviews.  Amazon is the king when it comes to reading the unbiased (and biased) opinions of consumers on products.

Have a blast with your photography/video. It's a great time to be in the market for digital cameras, lenses, and accessories. We have a huge menagerie of choices, plenty of places to buy, and good prices. It's all about mini flexible tripod for digital cameras and tabletop tripods.
