Vanguard VS-82 Tabletop Mini Tripod
The Vanguard VS-82 tabletop tripod extends out to almost 10 inches and can handle 5.5 pounds of equipment making it ideal for use by videographers. Manufactured from quality aluminum, it also features a two way panhead and handle along with sturdy, non-skid feet. When folded up, this mini tripod comes close to about nine inches, making it not quite as compact as some models. However, the pan head and handle features is hard to come by in this tripod category making it worth your consideration.
