Nikon Compact Tripod
Lightweight, portable tripod
Our take on the Nikon Compact Tripod by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
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.

- oversize leg locks and rubber feet for added security

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!
