Having over the years tried quite a few small tripods including Gorilla type tripods, the Pixi is perfect for nearly all situations being lightweight enough to pop into a small bag.  As an example, mine lives in my Millican day bag, that making it convenient to reach for when when handheld speed is compromised by camera shake.

Sold in numerous colours including white, black, pink and red, the little Pixi incorporates a ball head providing a 35 degree tilt range, easily controlled through the use of a button release, which you simply push in to activate, as well as having a leg spread is 135mm making the Pixi stable for the majority of CSC camera and lenses.  Incidentally, the ball head has a smooth swivelling action.
