Our take on the Nikon Compact Tripod

Nikon's Compact Tripod is great for those times when you want to take your binoculars, fieldscope, spotting scope, or even your camera out in the field or on a vacation. It's lightweight — less than 1-1/2 lbs. — and collapses down to just over 15 inches in length. The two-way pan head features a standard thread mount.

Product Highlights:

  • compact, lightweight tripod is easy to pack and deploy
  • 43" at full extension
  • easy-grip two-way pan handle
  • individually adjustable legs help you steady the tripod on uneven ground
  • oversize leg locks and rubber feet for added security
  • closed length: 15-3/8"
  • weight: 1.45 lbs.
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

What's in the Box:

  • Compact tripod with quick release camera mount
  • 6.25" Panning handle

I think this tripod is plenty of support for my point and shoot camera. The light weight portability is most important to me. A small backpack will carry my camera case, this tripod, and lunch into the wilds of the Smokey Mountains!
