With image stabilization becoming standard equipment on even the tiniest point and shoot cameras, you would think that things like tripods would no longer be necessary. Although image stabilization does amazing things, it still can't give you the razer sharp images that a steady surface can give you. That's why professional photographers still choose to lug around those big tripods; they simply give you the best possible pictures. Manfrotto has taken their tripod design and manufacturing expertise and have created the ModoPocket, a pocket sized mini tripod that fits easily on the body of your point and shoot while still allowing you to pocket your camera easily.
The ModoPocket is definitely pocket sized enough to take with you anywhere you go. It's even smaller than many of those other mini-tripods that you see out there so it doesn't create an unsightly bulge in your pants.
The ModoPocket folds open to give you a small but stable platform on which to attach your camera. With a weight limit of 500 grams, it is clearly targeted towards smaller point and shoot cameras. Rubber feet on the base of the stand provides some stickiness on slippery surfaces while a rubberized surface where the ModoPocket meets the camera keeps it from scratching your camera. A big red anodized aluminum thumb screw allows you to attach the ModoPocket to the tripod mount of your camera and saves a few grams over steel in the process.
Setting it Up
The ModoPocket is extremely easy to attach. The big red aluminum screw on the ModoPocket attaches to the standard tripod mount on your camera. You can simply tighten it down with a coin, or if you have fingers of steel, you can just twist till its tight...but not too tight.
