Travel Tripod for under 100$ for Compact Camera + Flash
Jan 10, 2014

Hello Community,

I am still searching for a suitable Tripod including ball-head for me and my Nikon P7700 (or for other reviewers similar enthusiast Compacts).

I read a lot of reviews here but a conclusion is still tricky:

I need a tripod which fits in a backpack (therefore should be folded around 15" of length) and doesn't need to be the sturdiest since the P7700 is fairly light. Maybe once in a while I will use it with a flash but still overall weight should be easily under 4 pounds.

I narrowed my research down to those 4 and would like to receive your feedback prior to purchase and maybe you can specify why you chose one model/brand over another one. Or maybe there is a completely different one you recommend; which folds down to about 15". I would still like to stay under 100 $; I don't see the point spending more and here I want to remain firm.

Mefoto Backpacker:

Slik Sprint Mini II:

Thanks in advance!!!
