The U.pod series was developed after a great deal of consultation with end users and professionals in the industry. Constructed of an aluminum alloy, protected by a wear proof black lacquer.
The legs fold into the central column to use the U.pod as a mini monopod. Unfolded, the legs become a platform turning the U.pod into a stable mini tripod. Complete with wrist strap for convenient carrying.
This Giottos QU 305B convertible tripod can be used either as a table-top tripod, or as a mini or handheld monopod. The short extension column can be removed from the tripod legs, which allows for a minimum working height of only 2.2". With the extension column connected, a height of 13.8" is achieved, with a respectable load capacity of 11 lbs.

Small but very stable. Quality materials, Easy to switch heads and set up. Included Ball Head does not match quality of tripod.
Does hold both of my DSLRs but sure looks flimsy. Haven't taken it out yet so maybe it will prove me wrong.
Headline making mini-pod for the mobil photog. Well built, goes everywhere in your pocket.
High quality construction. Great for close-up or backpacking into the wilderness and every ounce on your back counts.
