It's solid but steep price.

Adorama

  • Excerpt: I'm staring at it. $50. For another $50 I could have gotten a full size tripod. I would be much happier if it was $35. Great product. I'd buy it again and again because it's manfrotto. I wouldn't play around and try to HOPE a $25-$35 non-manfrotto is as good.

Excellent product with 'Multiple Uses'

Jerry S., Adorama
26 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Aside from its obvious use as a table-top tripod, I use these as camera stands mounted with a quick release adaptor. They are great for keeping my cameras off abbrasive surfaces and standing them fast while I change lenses, batteries, echange memory cards or perform other servicing, including cleaning. My cameras usually stay on them while not in their cases, covered with a large 'Digital Goja' black microfiber cleaning cloth.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Good Weight Support, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: None

Sturdy, but needs a bag

skyforger, Adorama
18 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Needs a bag to come with it, instead of having to buy something separately. Fits nicely in my camera bag, and able to support my D800 with MB and flash plus a 24-120mm f4 lens with no difficulties. Price is about right if they threw in a nice little bag.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: No bag

Sturdy and simple

Jordan, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I'm currently working on a stop-motion project for grad school and was having difficulty with the stabilty of my tri-pod. An instructor of mine recommended this tri-pod. It's incredibly sturdy! And what I love most is the angles can be changed with the twist of just one knob rather than the 4 my old tri-pod has. Completely worth every penny!

Great tripod for table top

Brucewoods, opticsplanet.com
31 October 2011
  • Summary: It's a great mini tripod but I just wish there was an option to raise it even just 2-3". It is extremely light and portable. It sets up super fast. For the money it is great though probably would be better off in the mid $20s.
  • Pros: Really light and extremely portable
  • Cons: Wish it had an option to raise up just a little
