Stick To The Tabletop With Slik
Come inside for tabletop or macro photography and you can get away with smaller and lighter tripods - provided you are using a small light camera and lens. Sometimes they really do need to sit on table tops.
In the case of this cutie, it combines metal legs, a two-way head, and an extendable center column. It don't extend up very high, but it does go down to the table top, and they have put a unique feature down there - a suction cup. All in aid of a little more stability.
Fortunately most studios do not have cross-winds. But it is still comforting to get as much hold as you can.
This Slik Mini 8 tripod is just the thing. A small thing, but a thing nevertheless.
