This inexpensive all-metal mini-tripod has a lot of nice features for the $$$.
So, I like this item but I wanted to list a
few details that could be improved by the mfctr :
-- use soft-rubber leg-tips for improved grip.
(NOT the actual slippery hard-plastic)
-- allow slightly wider leg-angle for improved stability.
-- allow for finer friction control on pivot-ball lock.
(actual ON/OFF pivot-lock makes adjusting camera position challenging )
-- leg-extension held in position by friction
(with a lot of use that friction will be reduced? then what?)
(... I know, these improvements would about double the cost ... )
well I bought this to make youtube videos about my diy crafts and to take pics t post on my etsy shop so I think it works great for what I need it for but in the future I plan to get a larger one this one does the job for now.
This mini tripod is yet another wonderful product from a reputable manufacturer! I had been looking for a small stand for my seven inch mini TV (that had a threaded hole on the bottom) and came about this. It may be cheap in price, but it was certainly not made cheap. It seems to be made of aluminum, a strong, yet light weight material. This features retractable legs that will stay in the place you put them in. There is also a swivel head that allows for the user to change the angle with ease then lock it back into place just as easily. I must also give credit to Wal-Mart for getting this product to me the day after ordering (I had chosen the shipping that should have taken a week). Overall this is a compact, lightweight, well made, piece of equipment that is at a very low price!
I needed a small tripod to attach to my camera to document that I was in certain locations for a scavenger hunt. It worked great
Prompt service great table top tripod!
I have had one just like this for several years and love it. I bought this one for a gift.
Bought this tripod to use with my Home Theater Processor room correction setup microphone. Everthing worked great. The tripod was a perfect fit for the microphone and made the whole setup process work smoothly. Highly recommend tripod and great Walmart price.
Works well for taking self portraits
Great option when you are traveling alone or want to appear in the pic and theres nobody who can take you a pic, just put it on the floor in a rock on a table ect, set the timer and your pic is ready. I also like to put it on my desk and record my students performance in my art class..
I used my tripods for small speakers. They do what I needed them to do perfectly. I gave an Overall Rating of four stars because one of the tripods swivel heads would not hold one of my speakers in place. The tightening tab/screw would not tighten sufficiently to keep the speaker from slowly re-positioning. The problem with said tripod was simple. I just disassembled and put it back together. This time the right way. Problem fixed. I did buy an extra one for my camera.
Works great don't have to struggle to tight the neck. Package says "rubber tipped legs" no they not rubber its plastic... You will have some trouble adjusting it to an angle since it only has 3 legs I think if it had 4 legs might be easier to stand without issues. But for me it's fine right now as I will use it for travel. 4 stars cause tipped legs are not rubber and $8.00 seems a little bit too much.
The moment I pulled the stand from its package, I immediately knew two things: The stand was the same I had seen online elsewhere for much less, and the unit was built so quickly that the integral parts were cockeyed and wouldn't hold the video camera straight. I made due with the condition until I could disassemble the unit and reassemble it correctly.
If your Targus TGT-CT7 tripod stands the way mine did, it's due to the threaded disc internal to the main housing having been installed in a hasty, cross-threaded manner. To fix the issue, unscrew the single Phillips-head screw from the bottom center of the main housing. The legs and two plates will fall away. You will then see the threaded disc I mentioned. Using two tiny screwdrivers (or a spanner), unscrew the disk by sticking the screwdrivers into the indentations and turning counterclockwise. Make sure that the locking shaft for the upper section of the stand doesn't fall out the side. This is a bit tedious. Reset the disc after you're certain that the disc is level, screw the disc in place, and insert the first plate. Set all 3 legs back in place, drop the outer plate down, and screw the Phillips-head screw back down. The unit should sit level.
I should mention that the printed "Targus" logo didn't hold up through that ordeal, verifying that the extra money I spent was simply to cover the cost of printing the "Targus" logo on the side of polished aluminum. They'd have done better to have printed their logo on one of the legs, but whatever.
Good, cheap unit.
returned for full refund after one day. too short with legs retracted, limited height adjustment, found exactly what I wanted from Rakuten at half the price(including shipping)
Good product. Just what I needed for my purposes. Quick delivery.
