    mini tripod can use to put on a table, that's why sometimes it is called a table-tripod. For A75 any tripod will do...
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    newbie here...

    the only thing i can think of to use a table tripod for, is to take pictures of small items you wish to sell online

    correct me if i'm wrong

    you are wrong! how are you going to shoot with the mini tripod of a coin, make it stand up? turn it 90 degrees?

    there are so many ways to use it, for your G5, you can place the cam with the mini tripod on tables, bench flat sufaces and take, group shoots, on the edge of the pavement to take low angle shots of cats, vehicle movement with long shutter speeds, shoot yourself with your gf with amibent light at say the esplanade. some ppl cannot stand to leave the cam on rough surface, it could be your cameras legs. all these if you do not want a bulkly regular tripod

    i have not even started thinking seriously

    I always throw this in my bag, strap on fence for nite shoot, on table or wall for added stability for low light, strap ontop of pole to use as monopod etc.

    You can get it at Cathay Photo Peninsular Plaza. There are 2 sizes. Smaller one for compact cams for around $25, and bigger one ( supposed to hold up to SLR size ) for around $35-45.

    The ultrapods are also plastic. That's why they are light.

    The head is made so that it is a little further from the legs when the tripod is attached to a pole or support. This allows you to still mount your camera on the head without bumping into the pole.

    I have a Slik MiniPod which I use for table top photography. Bought from CP $25/-. You may want to consider this.

    Max Operating Height - 215mm
    Folded Length - 200mm
    Weight - 0.32kg.

    Picture of MiniPod HERE . It's the last one on that page.

    The ultrapod II is very appealing because of its velcro, making anything that resembles a rod a tripod...
