Summary: got it from sams club for $19.47+tax to use with my digital camcorder Sony HDR HC3. After buying it, I saw the reviews here on pricegrabber for this tripod, and i was scared if i bought a correct tripod. (almost all of the reviews have said that the tripod is good only for a small camera). Well it turns out otherwise. Not only is this tripod stable, but it works well with my camcorder. no complaints for the price.
Pros: value for money
Cons: - big in size (20 1/2") when folded - spirit level is too slow to move and tell the horizontal alignment of the camera/camcorder
Summary: I like this tripod and it is excellent for a small digital camera. Very solid and firm with enough functions. I feel very safe when camera sitting on it. For a small price and at low end tripod this perfect choice. Save me a lot of time for shopping around. I have Kodak DX7590 Digital camera.
Summary: For 24 dollars this is very good deal for average user and easy to carry with its light weight with carry case. General say it is well constructed and designed tripod. I think is the best deal for a tripod with such quality.
Pros: It is solid, very light weight and sturdy
Cons: Center column has gap big enough to make it not steady, Quick release plate's screw isn't the best design when try fasten the camera on it.
Summary: The tripod looks really sleek and professional. Besides all the standard tripod adjustments knobs, it has a built in level on the tripod plate. that is really useful when you are using the tripod on uneven surfaces. The tripod is light and easy to carry. Fits easily in the carry bag. But with lightness, comes less sturdiness. So if you have a heavy camera, the tripod might not be stable if you adjust the camera at a tilted position.
Summary: I purchased this item from MonarchTechnology. I'm using it with my Kodak CX7330, and it works very well. It feels sturdy and stable as a light weight tripod. I love the carry case. I am a little concerned about the durability of the plastic head, but since I'm not going to use a tripod frequently, this one fits my need at a low cost.
Summary: Hi, This is a great product from Kodak for ameture photographers. I like to aluminium construction with framed support for all legs. The level indicator is of great help. Smooth movement of the levers in all sides. It also extends to good height. Light weight and good to carry for ameture photographers on outing. The nylon carry bad is very handy. Tripod is an essential equipment and I think Kodak gave a good product to ameture photographers at this price.
Pros: Great quality, rugged construction, light weight, level indicator, adjustable legs and good height
Cons: None for me, but owners of heavy camera may need more strong tripod
Summary: A good tripod for the price. Not sutable for anything other than a small, lightweight camera. Would be unstable with a heavy camera due to the thin legs. The tripod is lightweight and the carrying case is handy.
Summary: For the price it is a good tri-pod; however it needs a better quick-release plate or it should state that it is only good for small digital cameras. A normal size camera has problems staying secure. The legs work very nice with good locking action. The height of the tri-pod is good. Delivery and condition of tri-pod was excellent.
Pros: It is lightweight and small enough to carry with a camera bag. Seems pretty steady on legs.
Cons: Quick release plate is plastic and should be stronger or metal to hold a normal size camera. Sometimes the weight of the camera is too much for the tripod.
