broken out of box

Peter N., Newegg
20 December 2011
  • Summary: I read the reviews before I bought it, but return shipping would be as much as I paid for the tripod.
  • Pros: the quick release plate matches my pistol grip ball head on my other tripod
  • Cons: one of the leg locks was broken out of the box. not sure if this was someone else's return because the shipping box was undamaged

Not bad

Christopher C., Newegg
17 December 2011
  • Summary: Decent tripod. I had a Slik tripod for years. Plastic clamps eventually broke. This one is the same basic design, but the legs are a bit lighter weight.
  • Pros: Seems strong enough for point and shoot, light weight camcorder, or SLR with small lense. Light to carry. folds fairly small. Has a hoom on teh bottom to hang a weight bag to stabilize it. I think if I actually used it, the whole tripod would colapse.
  • Cons: Bag it comes with is feces, but who uses the bag anyway. I put a sling on it from an old tripod. It does not go as high as a larger tripod, but ont he other hand does fold small.

Light and Cheap

Jeremy K., Newegg
6 December 2011
  • Pros: Light and Cheap
  • Cons: Light and Cheap. This was an example of something I wish I saw in a brick and mortar store first. When I pulled this out of the package, I immediately knew I made a mistake. In a word, plastic. Everything feels flimsy. It has not broken yet, but I know if my 4 year old looks at it funny, something will go. Buy something else.

Great bang for your buck

Dwight L., Newegg
9 June 2011
  • Summary: Many people are complaining about the plastic/cheapness factor of the tri-pod. I am by no means a professional photographer (I use a higher end point and shoot - Olympus) however as long as you take a minimal amount of care, this tripod should easily stand the test of time. I don't know how others do their shoots but it sounds like many are doing extreme sports or wake-boarding with their tripod or something.
  • Pros: -CHEAP! -Quick Release mechanism. This was one of the main reasons I bought it; I was so tired of having to screw/mount my camera to the tripod every time. Now I just leave the quick release part on the camera and it just pops into the tripod in a snap. -Multiple levels (the tools used to measure if something is 'level' or flat) -Small foot print when 'broken down' -Great customization in terms of settings: height, angle etc etc. -Great for first time tri-pod, casual ...
  • Cons: -Everything is plastic. -Not as durable as a heavy-duty metal tri-pod. -Note, for the price these cons are not enough to make this a 4/5.

Perfectly OK for Light Duty

Alan A., Newegg
4 May 2011
  • Summary: Let's keep our wits about us. It's easy to spend $500 for a tripod, so for under 20 bucks we should expect...? This is a perfectly good el cheepo tripod. In the house or around the yard it will do fine. Throw it into your backpack for a nature hike and I'm not so sure it will come out in one piece.
  • Pros: Quick setup, has a neat little leveling bubble. Taller than many. For light duty--preferably in the living room--it's a good tool.
  • Cons: none, all considered
