Flutists + mini-tripod = pointless amusement for everyone!
The mini-tripod itself was bought at a dollar store at the Lansdowne Mall in Richmond, BC. My mom saw it in the back corner of the store and immediately squealed, "It's so perfect for your video blogs!" I bought one, and my mom bought two. She can't find hers anymore. ;)
I used this mini-tripod extensively for some upcoming Nachschlag tour videos. Very handy to carry around. And it's a dollar. What more can you ask for?
Unfortunately, this particular mini-tripod is no longer available at Lansdowne. My friend Carrie informed me that similar mini-tripods are being sold in Metrotown (Burnaby)! Features a rotating/swivel head! So I guess that's why it's $1.25. :)
I bought 3.
