Thx

I picked up the Pixi Smart earlier this year and have used it quite a lot.

I've done >10 second exposures at ground level on shingle beaches and on forest floors and it has been fantastic considering the price point. It's rock solid and the single button release for the incorporated ball head is a work of genius! Unbelievably, it can hold the XH1 and battery grip with the 100 - 400 mounted without budging a mm. It's also great for tabletop photography and timelapses.

One use which I'd never considered before getting it is that folded, it becomes like a mini monopod and can be held firmly in the left hand.

I had considered the gorillapod around the same time, but I'm glad I went for the Manfrotto.

I heartily recommend it.

Regards,

Joe.
