Very handy to have in your kit

Photog 71, B&H Photo
11 January 2016
  • Excerpt: This is a nice little tripod to have with you when you want to carry as little as possible, but still want the option of some basic stabilization. I use this when I'm walking around with my Fuji XT-10, one extra lens and maybe a remote.
  • Pros: Flexibility, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly

  • Cons: Not For Big Zooms

LIGHTEN your load!

  • 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
  • Cons: Metal Preferred In Part

Sturdy and can be clamped anywhere

Scott S, B&H Photo
10 December 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a good tripod for those of us with superzoom (bridge) cameras who want a bit of support at the long zoom. That the tripod is rated for more weight means it's even more stable for lighter cameras.One thing I had hoped, and was able to do with the display model, but can't do with the new one...
