Manfrotto Pixi Mini Tripod

Mini tripods usually handle smartphones or light point-and-shoots, and we wouldn’t trust most to prop up our heavy DSLRs – unless it’s Manfrotto’s Pixi we’re talking about. Manufactured from stainless steel and Adapto – a polymer similar in strength to aluminum but 50% lighter – Pixi’s three legs fold in for easy transport and use as a handle, while the ball joint locks in place and adjusts at the touch of the push-button below the company’s logo. Cameras up to 2.2 pounds with a standard tripod screw – as well as accessories that grant your smartphone one – welcome.
