Manfrotto tripod review – Manfrotto PIXI Mini
Product: Manfrotto PIXI Mini My rating: 4 out of 5
The table top tripod is a needed tool when you want to go shooting photos with light equipment. This is only working with small cameras, with a maximum load 2.2 lb / 1 kg.
This table top tripod may be also used as a hand held grip support for a small camera or compact camcorder. The legs are rounded on their outer side, so keeping it closed provides a comfortable hand grip.
When open it has a maximum height of 5.31″. Rubber feet avoid slipping and protect sensible surfaces.

Ground level operation
In my opinion this is the biggest advantage of a table top tripod. On the ground for shooting cityscapes or landscapes, also long-exposure photography goes fine being a strong and steady tool.
Quality – price ratio
For about $20 on eBay it gives a lot: resistant in time, steady and strong, light and easy to carry all over.
It is a good to have if you feel it meets your needs. As a major minus, I have to mention the vertical tilt limitation -35° to +35°
