Pedco has been keeping pace with the ever-changing world of optics, electronics, and things to mount them to for over 40 years, delivering an ultralight, compact, and affordable answer to almost any device-mounting situation. Few accessories have proven more essential to more people over the years than Pedco’s legendary UltraPod™ tripod. For Spring 2023, Pedco is excited to introduce the new UltraPod 3 Mini Travel Tripod with phone mount.

Building on the success of the original UltraPod, the new UltraPod 3 Mini Travel Tripod is 40% stronger and offers a range of features and functions, including a unique ball and socket assembly, fold-out legs with non-slip TPE feet, and a strong hook and loop strap perfect for securing to trees, railings, etc. It includes a standard ¼-20 camera screw and universal phone mount that can accommodate phones up to 3.5” wide. Weighing just 2.3 ounces, the UltraPod 3 Mini boasts an industry-leading weight capacity of 5 pounds. Available Spring 2023 with an MSRP of $29.99.

“The Pedco legacy is about providing accessible, high-quality tools for photographers of every level, from professionals to influencers to hobbyists to families,” says Drew Keegan, president of Industrial Revolution, parent company of Pedco. “Whether you’re using it for long exposures, group photos, selfies, or action shots, the UltraPod 3 Mini gives you a better result and it’s so compact and lightweight there’s never an excuse to leave it at home.”
