The full-sized tripod is ideal for professional photographers. Usually heavier and able to extend to greater heights, these tripods have adjustable legs as well as heads that can be moved in different directions so you have the freedom to shoot however and wherever you want.
Mini camera tripods are small and lightweight enough to be taken almost anywhere and can even be used on top of a table. These cameras are great for taking close-up pictures or timed self-portraits and group shots.
There are also mini tripods with flexible leg joints that can be bent or rotated into tons of different positions. It serves the same function as a mini camera tripod, but goes one step further by allowing you to wrap it around virtually any object. For example, you can wrap the arms around a tree branch and take photos while you stroll through the park.
