Summary: This is an inexpensive tripod but it is perfect for my needs. I have a Power Shot G2. I am an avid fish keeper and villager. I use it to photograph my fish tanks and miniature village creations and it works perfect. Pan is a little rough and I haven't quite gotten the hang of the tilt thing but if you need a basic tripod for hobbyist use this is a good one.
Summary: Very compact tripod for a small camera. I use my Panasonic Lumix TZ5 on this to take photos and short videos. You can easily put it in a backpack and take with you on hikes or walk arounds. Great for photos and stationary video, but so-so if you want to use it for doing any pan shots (left/right and up/down) for video. The panning motion is not fluid (you'll get jerky movements), but that's not what this tripod is for.
Summary: This was purchased primarily for my Canon Powershot A590IS. The tripod mount on the A590IS is off-center but the Alpha 1000 handles it with ease. It is also sturdy enough to use with my Canon Elan IIe with a normal lense; using a 100-300mm lense makes it a bit tippy. The size is very versatile and can be used as a table-top tripod or will extend to a height for nearly every situation. Very compact and lightweight it is perfect for travel and comes with a carry bag.
Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement
Summary: I am just getting started in the photography field. I like this tripod and it is great for traveling because it is lightweight and small. However, when a heavier camera is mounted on it, it tends to loose a little of its stability.
