VERY NICE VERY EASY

Berry S., Newegg
3 July 2012
  • Summary: Newegg rocks of course and got it to me before my vacation so I could take some really good time laps shots with my SLR
  • Pros: Light, easy to set up, easy to use, very stable. Suprised how smooth everything worked. Does not feel too cheaply made. Comes with a bag and levels.
  • Cons: mounting plate is a bit of an odd size but it does not really matter, it still fit both my point and shoot and my SLR

Pretty cheap...

Dave R., Newegg
28 June 2012
  • Pros: It's affordable, can get you by in a pinch.
  • Cons: You can tell this is by no means the best tripod... It's pretty cheaply made, the plastic handles for tightening everything together sometimes feel like they are going to break...

Careful of the clamps

Stephen F., Newegg
14 May 2012
  • 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.

Dolica ST500

Patrick K., Newegg
27 January 2012
  • Summary: Leg clamp busted, returning for refund, as it's quite a cheap unit
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: Flimsy, head raise hard to operate, felt like I would break it until it started working better. Leg Clamp was broken, from factory it seems, as the break wasn't where shipping would affect

This should cost more money.

Anonymous, Newegg
11 January 2012
  • Summary: This is a product I would expect to see for around a hundred bucks at a camera store. I love it. I paid like 17 bucks for this thing, and I feel like a stud every time I break it out.
  • Pros: Saw it on sale for under twenty bucks. Universal Can be a foot tall or six feet tall.
  • Cons: Nope.

Not so good, but cheap

Simon T., Newegg
26 September 2011
  • 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.
