Excerpt: Because I shoot from low level angles, this is the cat's meow. No longer do I need to put my camera on the ground. The minimal elevation allows me better visibility shooting Live View. I would have given it a 5 star rating, but the mount is plastic.
Pros: Click On Click Off, Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: I needed something for tabletop macro work, and this tripod works fine for that. Note there is still quite a bit of "play" in the position of the camera even when the ball head mount is locked down, so if super-accurate, unmoving positioning is crucial to your needs, this is not going to work for...
Excerpt: This is definitely one of the most useful and not so expensive accessory that all photographers should carry. Very useful for trips with luggage limitations. Must lighter than an actual tripod but that does not compromise on the sturdiness.
Excerpt: This compact and light multi-position tripod is perfect for when you need that special mount to take the perfect picture. And the best thing of all, I can mount my 600mm Telephoto Zoom lens and camera on it without any worries that the setup is too heavy.
Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Great to always have with you, however not always usable

Excerpt: I bought this to go backpacking. I didn't want to take my original tripod with me cause of weight and size to walk everywhere with. This is great it fits in my backpack and does not take up much space so now I take it everywhere I go.
Found this to be unusable in practice with my DSLRs

Excerpt: I received this item as a bonus with my camera body purchase. I tried using it in a couple of different scenarios, both as a simple tripod on the ground, and using its gripping feature on a park bench and lightpole. What I found is that it is not up to the task of supporting a typical DSLR.
Excerpt: Perfect size for throwing in a backpack. The rubber balls on the end are a clever addition, allowing it to grip surfaces. I use it with my DSLRs, gopros and as a stand for my zoom recorder. The ball head locks tight easily, but the leveler seems very fragile.
