  • Manfrotto MTPIXI-B PIXI Mini Tripod

    Posted by Jonathan on July 24th, 2017 (All posts by )


    The Manfrotto MTPIXI-B PIXI Mini Tripod is the official mini tripod of the Chicago Boyz blog.
     
    These things are great: bigger than those cheesy little mini tripods with bendable arms, yet still easily portable, faster to use and stable with even DSLR-sized cameras. I keep one in my briefcase with a compact mirrorless camera. You can easily carry one in a jeans pocket if you’re going out with photography in mind.
     

     
    UPDATE: Add a cellphone mount and you have an excellent setup for video calls.

      I dunno. If I can’t beat a cougar to death with it, it’s probably not stable enough. ;)

      I used to call my Manfrotto, ‘Cougar Swatter’, cause it could if needed.

      Pengun, you might get better results with cougars if you tried talking to them.

      Flowers and candy are a nice old-fashioned touch as well.

      Some how I feel, I should not take your advice. I have only felt secure once when there was a cougar around. I had a running chain saw in my hands.

      Well, if that’s your kink …

      LOL. I once picked up some anxious looking kids near Sqamish, a largely first nation area. They told me they had just had a big cougar approach them, and that’s why they were agitated. I asked them what happened, and the told me their grandpa had told them to chuck rocks at a cougars head if they were harassed by one. I looked at the side of the road and it was all rip rap, the nasty sharp rocks left by explosions. They saw me look, and said, yeah it did not take long before he left.
