Summary: If your going to purchase a stand, don't go cheap and stay away from this one.
Pros: Was nice as a free item with my camera purchase.
Cons: Upon first use I noticed one of the legs was hard to extend. Be warey of this. After the third use the clamp broke aprat from the tube and a little white plastic peice fell out. After reading some of the other reviews, I'm wondering if there was a batch from the factory that the manufacture thought they would just basically give away because it was cheaper than fixing them.
Summary: Good when ur on the go (I don't worry about leaving a 20$ tripod int the trunk :P) and don't cost much.
Pros: Only cost me 20$ free shipping. Holds the camera in place. I like the carrying handle, you don't loose time putting it back in the bag :) Quick release plate (don't have to screw your camera everytime you use the tripod :) )
Cons: I think this tripod have been made for lefthander. The freakin handle is on the left (not sooo bad..) but it's STRAIGHT. What it means is that you will have the handle right in your throat every time you look in the visor of camera. This is not a problem if you use the screen of your digital camera but I use a DSLR and I have to use my left eye to look at what I'm shooting.
