Con Can't rotate the ball head 90 degrees from landscape to portrait orientation
The newer Evo Pixi Evo 2 section tripod has a section in the ball head where you can rotate it a full 90 degrees so that your phone or camera etc can go from landscape to portrait orientation. Not so with the original Manfrotto Mini Pixi. Of course one could install a ballhead that would allow this behavior, but presumably, because of the shorter legs of this original product, it may tip over depending on camera/phone. Here's a picture to help visualize this point.
