Manfrotto Mini Tripod Review

The Manfrotto PIXI Mini Tripod is a great addition to any kit bag.  As soon as you pick up the Manfrotto Tripod you can feel it’s much better quality than lower cost tripods, it feels solid, well built, and it’s something you can trust your equipment on.

And that’s important as on the top is a standard thread that can be used with expensive cameras, camcorders and video cameras. You can also use mobiles via the included adapter that also acts as a mobile stand thanks to the little kickstand on the back.

You’re equipment is held in place by an incredible impressive lock. The red button on the front ‘unlocks’ the mount allowing you to adjust it’s position, let go of the button and it won’t move. At all. You’ll in the review video an attempt to move it…and also the subsequent failure, it didn’t even budge a millimeter!

Manfrotto PIXI Mini Tripod

This means you can pop a DSLR camera on the tripod and you don’t need to worry about the weight causing it to topple over, which could be especially disastrous if you’re shooting from a high position.

The legs fold in for easy storage, or for using this for selfies. Note the legs are solid and don’t bend, this isn’t the sort of tripod that allows you to wrap it round a tree for quirky shots, rather it is a solid bit of kit that you know isn’t going to topple over.

In this case you really do get what you pay for, Manfrotto have ensure the build is much better than lower cost mini tripods, important if you’re going to be using this with expensive equipment.
