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

Handy for tabletop work

29 July 2015
  • 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...

Definitely Useful

  • Excerpt: I've almost completely stopped using a full size tripod but that's just me and what I shoot. The ball head is usable but it's worth considering putting on something a little nicer.

Sturdy and can be clamped anywhere

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...

Pretty cool piece of gear

  • Excerpt: I bought this tripod to serve as my "travel pod." I can throw it in my car, backpack, or carry it on a plane. It does exactly what it says it does. I find it comes in pretty handy for those sunset or long exposure shots.

Nifty Tripod

  • Excerpt: Portable tripod that can grip to railings, chairs, handles, etc. Took it with me to travel around Europe along with my Canon 70d. On paper, it's helpful to stabilize for some night shots but 75% of the time I wish I had brought a proper tripod instead.

Sturdy and flexible

  • Excerpt: This thing looks weird but it is very flexible. Not just in the way the legs can be bent but in the many ways it can be set up. Hang it, stand it, wrap it around a tree limb. Very nice product.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly, Versatile
  • Cons: Legs Are Stiff When New
