Grifiti Nootle Flexpod Flexible Tripod:
While we're developing our reconfigurable Nootle Flexpods, we decided to buy some samples of these off the shelf flexpods to show how our Nootle iPad and iPhone mounts work with stands and desktop units. We had these on display at MacWorld and so many people wanted the set up we decided to go ahead and order some to see how they sell. They include a nice little quicky release plate that you attach to the back of the iPad mini mount. We really like these little release plates because they work as a nice knob to hold on to the iPad mini if you just want to carry it around sharing stuff with folks. Then when you want to pop it on to the flexpod you just put the knob into the tripod head and lock it down and you're set.
These are compact enough to easily stuff in a bag on the go and they work just fine for cameras or any other mounts you have with a 1/4-20 threading. They can handle up to a compact digital camera and up to a mirrorless digital camera with smaller lenses. Full sized dSLRs work on these but large lenses are a bit too much weight!
