Tamrac ZipShot Tripod

Summary: I own a Cannon camera with 30x Optical. I consider it a medium size camera. With no wind, indoors, this tripod couldn't be stablized with my camera. I made the fatal mistake of not trying it out before a two week cruise from Juneau to Seattle. I have returned this item.
Summary: This is a great tripod for people who don't want to lugged around a heavy tripod all over creation. Basically, its very light weight, fits into your basic day-pack and it got a ballhead but you have to buy the quick released stuff separately. It can support a weight up an ultra zoom camera like Panasonic FZ150 or Canon SX40. For point and shoot camera, it perfect. But I have seen a small DSLR on it as well.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Large Range of Motion, Lighweight And Packable, Strong Clamp
Summary: We purchased this tripod days before heading out on a hike, during which we got married. We wanted something that was light weight and fit in a small backpack - this fit the bill perfectly. It was a snap to set-up and break down, which we did multiple times during our hikes, and we captured great photos to share with our friends and family when we got home and announced we'd eloped!
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Easy Quick Set-up, Good Stability, Light
