MeFOTO mini tripods, $65 at Woot
Posted By: dcshooter, 01-17-2016, 09:09 AM

Regular retail price is supposedly $200, currently $99 at B+H, so looks to be a pretty good discount.

Anyone have experience using one? I've seen them up close they look OK but I have no idea if they are since I haven't handled one beyond a quick handling without a camera.

I have the next taller version. Decent build quality and value for money. This model works well as a table top or macro/flower tripod for a small setup.

Good price if you can live with 24" max height or less, since the center post can be a little more wobbly than I usually like when at full extension...

My wife has one of the bigger models and it's a pretty decent tripod, but you have to accept the limitations of what you're getting. By that I mean, they're designed to be compact, so there's some trade-offs involved. A smaller model like this ought to make a great table-top tripod.

I did a review on the larger one back when the MeFoto tripods first came out and were called "Benro MeFoto". MeFoto A1350Q1 reviews - Pentax Camera Accessory Review Database
