The VESTA TT1 Mini Aluminium Table Top Tripod Kit in white with smartphone holder is a small, ergonomic, stable tripod capable of holding smartphones and cameras up to 2kg/ 4.4 lbs.
This is a small tripod, I was surprised by how small it was. It’s the perfect size to fit into a pocket or a bag. It’s about the same size as the S20 Ultra but can handle the weight of up to 2kg. The compact size and strength make this a great choice for places where tripods may not be allowed.
The aluminium makes the VESTA Mini light, but very durable. This has taken hits of rain, snow and mud without it having any damage. I found I also used this as a handheld grip for my camera.
The legs use a single mechanism to move, so they open out like a flower. I’d have liked the legs to be individual, just for the more weird placements. But I understand that for the size and strength, this was the design they had to go for.

The phone grip is a step down in quality over the tripod. I did have to struggle to get it onto the phone, but once on it was secure. I’d recommend taking it off when not in use, as it increases the size of your phone. You may have to remove any Popsockets, but this makes sense. I even found the Phone grip to be a better alternative to the Popsocket.
I was able to get better photos when using the Tripod, as I was lower to the ground and had a stable shot. The grips on the feet are ok and do offer some stability, but it’s all in the legs.
Overall the VESTA Mini Aluminium Table Top Tripod is light, solid and offers a solid grip for phones and cameras. It can hold 2kg, which is enough for anyone buying a tripod for £35.
