" Take it anywhere, anytime. It works"

This is an must have clamp-on pod. Have had mine for 25+ years, and used it w/my heavy Konica SLR and now with digital Olympus point & shoot. It's small enough to go anywhere, pocket size, and does the job well. It's an extra hand.

perhaps costly

products seems easy to break. pretty delicate. but it's a great, small way to secure the camera in one place and command many angles and views.

Versatility, Durability, Price

By

from New York, NY  -  Professional

Quick light up over there? check. Quick simulated security camera in corner? check Hold slider for tabletop pan? check. if it needs to be put up quick and safe, this is it. Great for lightweight gear of all kinds. if it'll fit on a hot shoe mount or has an adapter, it's on. The mini tripod feature is priceless. Cable wrap or guide. in a pinch. Really useful and inexpensive. A total bargain.

Good enough for the money

The clamp cannot be tightend enough. Good value for the money.

the screw that affixes the camera to the stand is a bit iffy. the ball joints are okay.

Just good compromise - why not in metal?

By

from New York, NY  -  Semi-Professional

Versatile and not too bulky, this little helper was often with me on my tours. But: - It shakes and vibrates in itself too much with a SLR/DSLR - though the head holds even a Nikon D200 with tele lens. It is really good only for smaller and medium size cameras. I do not recommend using it as a tripod with a SLR/DSLR - it ist just not stable enough. Don't use it for long time exposures. - The plastic body just broke when I clamped it a bit too hard on a pipe. - Bottom storage lid for additional "steel legs" wears out easily -> permanent danger of losing the extensions. at least: A good compromised tool of good quality, but nothing for serious work. I probably would buy it again, if it would be made out of metal and the extensions would be improved.

Thoughtful Product!

By

from Big Pine, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I purchased this for a 3 month bicycle trip to fit in my saddle bag. Therefore, light weight and compactness were important issues. This Tri Pod is very versatile, compact and lightweight, just what I was looking for. However, due to the narrow spread of the legs and the light weight, I fear to leave my camera unattended on it. It is also unstable in the slightest wind or on the smallest incline (when using as a Tri Pod, not the clamp). I guess you can't have it all. I am taking this one with me.

Excellent stabilizer for cameras

By

from Alaska  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I take tons of picture from my car. This tool clamps nicely on the car window for good stabilization.

Great for medium to small cameras

Great product for small and medium cameras. Too small for SLR's.

LAWRENCE R  Great for clamping a P/S camera to objects when a tripod isn't available
Jake Y  How much weight will it handle? My D7000 with 18-200?
MIKHAIL M  I would not use it with DSLR. It can barely hold a small point-and-shoot camera.
Rich J  What is it made out of?
WILIAM S  The clamp is a molded polymer, maybe something like Zytel.
