Great for light cameras
Perfect for small cameras - definately NOT for a digital SLR. I am used to the speed of a DSLR. When I use a smaller camera (PowerShot, e.g.) I usually move it before the shutte engages. Now, I don't have that problem. Perfect for its niche.

There are much better compact tripods
This little tripod came with a little point and shoot that I got for my dad and it doesn't hold the camera.

When I placed my order for a Canon G15 package, it was advertised as coming with a 52" aluminum tripod. Instead I received this mini-tripod. I have 3 tabletop tripods, all much better than this flimsy one. I did not need it or want it. I expected to recieved the listed 52" tripod. I spoke with customer service on December 20 and am still waiting for the customer service to correct the error.
Large and sturdy enough for the camera it is intended for
I used it only once so far, it does the trick if you're waiting for something an you don't have to adjust it all the time. and if you want to shoot something quick, just pick up the camera with the tripod and do it, it's not in the way. And it can be raised higher by a couple of inches.
This came with a package deal for a Canon camera I purchased. It seems a bit flimsy and cheap. So I left it home rather than travel with it. Besides I already own a small tripod. I suppose for someone with a point and shoot it would be ok. It doesn't work well with what I bought.
A very nice quality aluminum tripod that I use primarily to help my grip on the camera.
It has minimal use and then only on a steady surface like a table. Buy something better built for a little more money.
I got this in a bundle. Having it included didn't really sway my decision, (The price of the camera is what swung me). I haven't had much occasion to use this yet, but hey I've got it in the event that I do need it.
easy to use
The screws and legs are unstable. I got it free because it came with the package deal, but I threw it away because it is useless. Do not buy this!
Haven't used it but don't see that it will be of much use.
