Just Right

  • Excerpt: This tripod is very light. It is just right for carring along on a trip. Like some other reviewers said, it is not real sturdy, but what do you want for 16oz? It is sturdy enough to get the job done. It is small enough you can put it in a backpack. In its case it measures only 14 inches. I am using it with my NEX-7 and it works just fine. I won't recommend it for a big heavy DSLR however.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Not for a DSLR

Really Like My Alpha 1000 Tripod!

  • Excerpt: Found the tripod ideal for taking group shots, when I'm part of the group, and for taking photos of myself. At age 60, the light weight is really a plus for me too. I can appreciate the 3-way panning feature; so much easier when taking video's of my grandkids. Some folks may think the light weight makes it flimsy, but for what I use it, it's a good tradeoff.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Sets up in no time, So light I always take it, Unfolds Quickly

Weak build

  • Excerpt: The tripod works alright and generally has decent functionality.<br />The tripod is also extremely weak at the joints where it's connected by weak plastic parts. It broke after my first outing with it when compressed sideways with what would have seemed like a reasonable amount of pressure.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Lightweight
  • Cons: Unstable, Weak Construction

Good in specific applications

  • Excerpt: I bought this for upcoming trip to Hawaii and hope that this will do the job. I wanted light and small, because I already have a larger heavier tripod and it's a pain to travel with. And I would never take my larger one hiking. This one is very lightweight (that's good and bad) but it's worth a try.

  • Excerpt: I bought this tripod for my canon rebel, with a 18-55mm lens. it holds the camera steady, even at 90 deg. I wouldnt try to put anything bigger on it. it fits in my camera bag, it is very light weight. handle it slow and careful and it well do the job.<br />I also have a bogen, but who want to pack 15lbs for 5 to 10 miles.

Great Backcountry Tripod!

  • Excerpt: I spend over ~2 wks chasing muleys/elk in wilderness areas out west each yr. We are always looking for lightweight products. This tripod is perfect for my Nikon ED50 Fieldscope.<br /><br />This tripod weighs just over 1 lb, it's compact when folded and it has a quick release plate (even though it isn't mentioned).<br /><br />It will help us glass animals to decide whether or not they are worth the extra mile.

Very light weight

9 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Bought this for backcountry use (mountaineering / alpine rock climbing / ski mountaineering) because of light weight and design (wanted tripod - NOT monopod). It supports the Canon G12 well. Might not be durable in the long run, but it is everything I expected it to be. I expect it to get beat up over time and eventually break, but it will serve me well while it works; worth every penny since it isn't expensive.
