Velbon has released the all-new V-Pod, which allows compact camera and camera-phone photographers to be ready for night scene long-exposure shots, family and event shots where the photographer wants to be included in the image, and to improve between-image registration for multi-image Panorama stitching.

With folded height of 29cm and weighing 260g, this tripod can make all the difference. It is not designed for the big pro SLRs, but is more for unobtrusive convenient use to ensure the best pictures from a digital compact or a more advanced camera-phone.

Supplied with a suitable adaptor to securely attach a mobile phone, the Velbon V-Pod also comes together with a soft protective pouch that takes almost no extra space, but prevents abrasions to the tripod from the occasional knock.
