Using the Pocket Tripod and a Giottos MH 1004 ball head. The 2 pound mid-size digital camera was able to take a sharp picture on top of a trash can. The shutter was left open for 6 seconds. Luckily no one had to use the trash can at that time. Dealing with this minor inconvenience was better than carrying a tripod all day long. The Pocket Tripod and the ball head easily fit in a jacket pocket.
Balance is still the key to making the Pocket Tripod and ball joint work. A 50mm lens was not a problem, but a larger lens would be harder to balance.
