Some time ago i bought this tripod for my snapshot cameras and i’ve been very happy. When folded, the camera still fits into its case. It does slightly impede the access to the battery and SD card, but its a price i’m willing to pay so i can get a low light long exposure i want. When i was down in melbourne nearly two years ago with the A480, it would have been very welcome as i was balancing on signs or whatever i could but couldnt tilt.
I also used it on the weekend with the Nikon V1 and combined with a wheelie bin, it became an effective tripod.
