Excerpt: The stand is easy to adjust and the feet are magnetic which helps keeps it steady. The joint that holds the camera, or in my case - iphone 6, isn't strong enough. It gently starts to sag down and face the floor.
Excerpt: I purchased one of these to travel with my D800 and it got frequent use alongside my 16-35mm. It takes a little while to get it setup, it wouldn't support the weight very well if the legs weren't straight, which if you just had it wrapped around a railing takes a while to sort out.
Excerpt: I'm using this for a Go Pro (with a tripod mount). It's quite a bit smaller than expected, I understand this is the Point-and-shoot camera version, but the legs are only just enough to go around something as thick as a regular guy's wrist, and certainly not long enough to go around something like a...
Excerpt: the magnets on the feet are fairly strong, but even though my camera is lighter than what it is rated for, they seem a little inadequate. the adjustment mechanisms are a little stiff and it feels like it is going to break if i adjust the ball.
Excerpt: It is easier to carry than a tripod, especially in a small bag. However I have tripods that are about the same size when folded. Although not easy to setup, it does what it's supposed to do, and it does it well. Don't expect to wrap it around a tree branch or pole when using an slr camera.
Excerpt: I bought this tripod for vacation photos to use with my Nikon D7000 when unable to carry a full size tripod.
It is rather difficult to adjust a precise angle without the ball head (it should be sold with the head included, it is needed).
Excerpt: Annoying to screw in a small piece of plastic, then attach to the tripod.
The movement of the ball is so firm that it takes some time to get the camera positioned where you want it.
More hipe, less useful. Just a common tripod would do fine. Easy to screw in and out.
