Summary: The tripod is great. I was not sure if it could hold the weight of my Nikon D40 with a 55-200m lens, but for a couple bucks i thought i would try, and it holds the weight just fine.
There is no reason not to buy one of these. It is small enough to put in any camera bag, and it is great for holding the camera in areas where a regular tripod is too big and bulky. The little rubber feet are very grippy too. I suspect this will come in very handy.
Summary: I purchased the vs41 and vs55. Vs41 more flexable but vs55 stays firm on any surface. I've Used the Vs41 a few times and it does what its suppose to do but if you use a heavy lense the VS55 will do a job better.
Summary: Don't waste your time - get one a little less cheap. There is a reason that S&H is more than product price (and way more than is reasonable: 2oz @1st class is $0.79).
This is the same exact product as "Sunpak 620-786 Mini-Spider Tripod"
They don't support my tiny Lumix FX33 and are more elastic than "poseable".
Summary: Attached this to a Canon Powershot SD850 IS with no problems however it leans forward a little but can be corrected by placing the back leg lower. The legs are flexible and it's also good for carrying the camera when using the video on the camera. For the price, it's well made, can't complain. Get it; you never know when you might need it and it's small enough to carry around in your pocket or to throw in your glovebox.
Summary: You get what you pay for. Mine wasn't even together when I opened it from the box. I guess its the luck of the draw on whether you get a good one or not. I didn't & its a hassle to send it back because shipping itself almost costs as much as the item.
