good for the price

Not a great tripod but since it's so inexpensive the bar is set low. Some of the knobs have extra plastic flashing on them so they won't seat, I'll have to clip the plastic off for it to work. On the other hand, for the few dollars this cost, it is more stable than expected. I wouldn't use this for a DSLR with a heavy lens but for a small camcorder it is great.

Great Tripod

I use this product with my Nikon D5100. I'm a beginner and just needed a basic tripid. This does the trick.

Incredible value!

I'm an **amateur** photo-/videographer. I've used this for a Sony HDRCX220 for photos and videos so far. First, the shop: shipping was very inexpensive and very fast. I received it within 3 days. The price could not be beat - and I looked everywhere, so buy this tripod here! The tripod is AWESOME and I love it! It's very very small, very light, and very inexpensive, but - and I tried this out in person in shops - it's the most versatile one I could find, regardless of price! I've compared several in the stores, and this one can grow taller and shrink shorter than any of its much higher priced competitors - it comes up to almost 5 feet high and breaks down to fit into a big hobo-bag-purse easily! The footprint is (I haven't measured exactly) only about 2.5 feet at the most, so it can go almost anywhere with you. The quick release plate is small enough that I actually just leave it on my (video) camera sometimes when I'm not on the tripod. It doesn't get in my way. It has a level on it if you need precision, and it's very easy to put on and take off, even with the camera already attached. The head swivels, pitches, and yaws just like anything you'd expect - I haven't found an angle it can't handle yet. Everything locks quite securely and you can trust it not to slip. It's really lightweight, but I wouldn't call it flimsy. YES, you could bend the legs if you tripped hard or tried to bend them on purpose, but you will probably never damage it on accident with normal use. I would definitely trust it to hold more than its stated 2.5lbs capacity, but probably only twice that. I don't know if I'd put a 1500$ camera on it, though. All in all this thing is fantastic for the price and very versatile. Unless your livelihood depends on your tripod, I would not recommend paying a dime more. This is a great little tripod.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Will this fit a sony ned-5r?
J R  I've never tried myself, but I imagine that it would. It has the standard threaded screw for pretty much all cameras, and the plate is completely flat and flush on top and small enough not to catch on that bump on the right hand. You might have trouble releasing the plate if the camera is mounted to where it's right over the release, but you can just swivel it. I could see potentially having slippage problems with a very heavy lens on if you don't really tighten all the adjustments, but I can't verify one way or the other. Keep in mind that this IS a thin, light, inexpensive tripod. It works perfectly for my very-light-use purposes, but I don't know if I'd trust it for something like daily use on a more expensive camera.
Shea S  Would this work well with my Nikon D3100? I'm not sure if it's strong enough to hold my camera in place without it sliding forward or something cause of the weight of my camera...
THOMAS F  Yes it will work fine. I used it for my D7000 w/ a 18-200 lens while travelling in Palestine. It's not the sturdiest so I wouldn't recommend it for everyday use, but as a travelling tripod it's perfect.
