This compact tripod is only 2 months old and is still available from 7dayshop You can search for 'travel pro tripod" on the 7dayshop website to read full details of this product. Likewise, search for "travel pro tripod' on youtube to see a video demonstration.
It comes with 2 built in spirit levels for precise alignment, a hook to hold a weight for added stability and a unique twist and turn action to extend the legs quickly. I am including a spare, quick release plate which is handy if you lose one or if you have more than one camera and want to swap them with the minimum of fuss. The case is, I think, better than the one shown on the youtube video and has a small pocket which will hold the spare release plate. It is designed to be comfortable to carry with a handle or shoulder strap. The 2 items together would cost nearly £50 new and I am offering these at nearly half price for £25.
The photo of the moon was taken with a solid, metal-frame camera, sporting a substantial 100mm-400mm zoom lens which the tripod supported with no problems.
