        Well designed, compact, light weight,
        A tripod that always in my photo gear bag.
        I purchase this one because my previous one is out of order after many years.
        But the new one is not so strong as the previous one. The building quality seems to be lower than before. Yet, I will not regard it as a "CON".

          Comments about Kalt Pocket Tripod with Ballhead:

          Very well designed and engineered tabletop tripod. This one is my second, seeing as one of my "friends" apparently thought a lot of my first one and absconded with it. It's rare in this type of product to see the amount of machining and detail work that must have been involved in its manufacture. As far as I can tell, every part is made of one type of metal or another, except for the tightening wheel at the top of the ball head, which is plastic. I even checked inside the barrel which holds the spring-loaded legs in a bunch. The top and bottom caps unscrew. Very well done indeed. I've used this with medium sized camcorders as well as a Pentax k-r, and as a stand for a slave flash, and so far, so good. Recommended, if you need a small tripod.

            Had one of these for years. Using an SLR (film) camera with zoom lens. Loved it! Used it for backpacking; the lightness is a plus. I then got out of photogrphy and ended up loosing it. In search of a new light weight tri-pod that actually works was leading me into dead ends... until I found it here.

            The one that I just bought from B+H will be my third one: the first one I gave away to a friend in the Middle East, the second one lasted me for 27 years or so.
            I've been using it for both SLR's and video and I have it with me whenever I go out to take pictures.
            The only minor thing I can think about is that you can not replace the ball-head when it is worn-out as happend to me this time, but let's be real, replacing it after 27 years.... no problem.

            Like the prior reviewer I have had this little gem for 20years or so. With the primitive ball head it also worksvery nicely as a chest/shoulder brace. It is also a usefuloff camera flash stand. Highly recommended.

            Expertise: Experienced (40 years or so) amateur.

            Items I Recommend: Nikon AS-19

            Works on Larger Nikon

            Comments about Kalt Pocket Tripod with Ballhead:

            I often stretch the limits of design intent as long as I'm not hanging from a cliff with it. No exceptions here. Though I purchased this in a different era (read as century) I still use this little gem today. Mine is over 20 years old. Made of mostly aluminum, it's light weight and packs very small and narrow at 7 inches long. Clearly made for PS's and lighter weight SLRs, In a pinch I used this with a Nikon D200 and 70-300VR tele. Adjust a bottom leg to align under the lens and stay close by. If you don't mind carrying something a tad bigger there are obvious better/safer choices for regular use with larger DSLR's like the D200. Select something with a true tri-pod arc leg as opposed to this almost flat base configuration. For us lightweight travelers a good small tripod can do anything a larger unit can, just understand it's operational limitations and use a wee bit of imagination.

            Expertise: 40 years of trial and error

            Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Am still using this one until I break it
