The Multi-Talented ModoPocket
Once attached, the ModoPocket adds minimal bulk to most point and shoot cameras. Attached to my Canon SD850is, it is just a little wider than the body and ads just a tiny bit more height. However, it still allows me to easily slip my camera into my pocket. The fact that it is so small makes it easy to carry around attached to the camera.
The ModoPocket can be used on flat surfaces, but as I found out, it seems to work in many unconventional places like on the rim of this coffee cup. If you love taking pictures of food in a restaurant, you can just perch it on the side of a glass and let’er rip.
Although the ModoPocket attaches to the existing tripod mount on your camera, it replaces it with its own mount. You can now keep the ModoPocket screwed on at all times and attach it to a tripod when you need it.
The Manfrotto ModoPocket is truly a great addition to any point and shoot camera. I found it remarkably well made for such a tiny piece of equipment and just opens up all sorts of new creative possibilities. For example, if you want a picture of yourself at a historic landmark, you can simply setup the timer and get in the shot without having to whip out a huge tripod, or rely on the photography skills of a passerby.
For places where you can’t or don’t want to use a flash, you can perch the ModoPocket on pretty much anything to make that shot happen. The ability to turn off the flash and make use of available light really makes a difference in the quality of your pictures. Finally, nothing beats a tripod for creating tack sharp shots and with the ModoPocket attached and ready to go at all times, you’ve got an instant tripod at your beck and call.
