Mini Tripod

Sorry for the big gap in blogposts!  I have a music exam next week and it is stressing me out so much, even more so than my uni ones!  I think it's just because I have to perform in front of someone rather than just writing down some numbers, and I'm really bad with nerves.  I had a practice with the pianist who will accompany me in the exam yesterday and I was shaking so much just because someone else was there!!

Anyway!  Tonight I'm going to tell you about a recent purchase I made.  I had been looking for a mini tripod for a while, just because I don't have the best camera in the world and for some reason I need to always use the flash when macro is on otherwise it goes blurry, so having a tripod would eliminate the shakiness from my hand.

I had a look on Amazon and I was expecting to pay about 6 or 7 pounds, but then I came across this absolute gem!  For 85p, yes, EIGHTY-FIVE PENCE, plus 99p delivery - totaling £1.84 - you get not one, but two mini tripods!  I had a balance on Amazon meaning I would get it for free, and it having 13 5* reviews so I just went for it!

My dad's old camera as model!
Beside 100ml Daisy perfume for size comparison
Folded up - very compact

I was a bit dubious about whether it would hold my camera because the hole where you screw the tripod in is over to the side so I thought it might overbalance, however it was actually fine.  The legs are fully adjustable so you can set it to different heights or at an angle.  The total height of the tripod is 12cm however it will be slightly smaller than this once you adjust the legs to suit your camera.  The screw is also universal and should fit all cameras as far as I know!

I just can't over the fact you get two, it's crazy!  I donated the other one to my dad, cause I'm such a kind daughter!

You can buy these from Amazon here.
