Digital Camera World Verdict

Table-top tripods are one of those things I think every photographer should own and the Benro KoalaPod is one of the better ones. Its flexible legs make it super versatile, either use it conventionally placed on a surface or wrap it around a gate, branch or pole – whatever wrappable surface is close to where you want to shoot. It's a great tool for a content creator on the move as it can be used with a smart phone, compact camera or a mirrorless camera.

Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

The Benro KoalaPod is a versatile, flexible mini tripod  designed that will help you capture content wherever you are. It can be used with a compact camera, a small mirrorless camera or with your smartphone using the bracket provided. There are traditional three-leg versions of the Koalapod, or a five-legged version. We tested the latter, which as two flexible accessory arms included - these can be attached to the tripod and used to mount a microphone and/or an LED light or monitor. 

A ball head attachment makes it really easy to angle the camera exactly as you want and you can tighten it up so that your equipment is secure. The phone mount is able to accommodate phones between 4.8cm and 10cm and it can be angled in almost any direction.
