I recently purchased this tri-pod to use for my binoculars for when i go on my hunting trips. i gotta say its extremely light wihich makes it great to carry around all day. seems pretty sturdy havent had any problems with it. dont know how it does with a camera like i said i use it with my binoculars and its great.
My first tripod. Always in my backpack. My photo instructor made fun of it because of sturdiness. Not everyone can afford $200.00 tripods. Great for my Coolpix which I shoot in Manual Mode now.
I bought this as a gift for my son and his wife, so they could capture those special moments with there new baby, they express so much appreciation, they say since they received this tripod, they have captured moments they would never of thought they could. very portabtle to take with them, every where, quick and easy to set up, I will be purchasing a second one for myself.
This project is good for easy portraits of children, but adults beware as it is not tall enough to handle. Also be cautious of the weight of your camera and make sure it is not top heavy. Other than that it is a good product.
The only problem I found is that when turning the camera from side to side, is hard to make a smooth move. It feels kind of stiff. I even put oil to loose it, but did not work. Everything else is a good value for the price.
It is lightweight but sturdy & very easy to use.
Light and functional
Light and robust: a very impressive combination of properties. Usually the light one are very unstable and shaky, while the robust ones are very heavy.
the out of box failure was the link flange that connects to the central stabilizer rod. it came loose as I extended one of the three tripod legs. I examined the flange snap that connects to the tripod leg and discovered that there was no spring tension to secure the connection. the connection functions similar to that of a seat belt. as far as i could determine, the part appears to be a manufacturing defect as opposed to a design flaw. I have reordered the Polaroid tripod and hope to have better luck. to the credit of other reviewers, the unit does appear to be solid, but the finish on the product is not high quality. I guess you get what you pay for in quality.
