      I've owned mine for over 3 years and I use it all the time, with a variety of cameras and camcorders. It's very easy to position and stays put.

      One feature that I love is the velcro strap. You can fold up the legs of the tripod, and wrap the velcro strap around a post or pole to mount the camera up and out of the way.

      I also own a gorillapod, and this one has proven to be more useful and more stable. In fact, I almost never even bother with the gorillapod.

      The description should have been better. My camera and lens were not stable with this mini pod. Camera is a T3i with a Tamron 18-270mm lens. Legs are thin and very flexible thus the camera needs to be very light, almost like a camera phone weight. Cost me 1/2 of price to send back, my fault.

        Works great with a Go pro, on the ground for people, dogs, bears or other animals running by. Attaches to branches steel poles or other similar objects. I am surprised that this is not next to Go pros in stores. If I was only going to buy one accessory for a Go pro it would be the Ultra-pod

        Need to buy the inexpensive Go-pro tripod mount.

        I have had an ultra-pod for over 30 years. I used to use it for backpacking with a 35mm camera which worked ok if there was a stump, log or boulder handy. But if you are after good images with a 35mm camera you would be better off with a larger sturdier tripod especially if you are looking for soft water or low light images.

            This tripod is extremely compact and lightweight. The ball head can be a bit tricky to tighten with a heavy or longer lens, but for most uses with typical cameras and lenses, it's fine.

                      I primarily do casual photography, travel, and take pictures for @ listings at times. This tripod is perfect. It is compact, doesn't occupy much space, is incredibly durable, and functions exactly as intended.What I wish would be better is the velcro strap, which can lose its stickiness over time. That can be fixed with a rubber band or small widget used for keeping cords together at a computer desk.Highly recommended.

                        Use this for all types of cameras and a flip video recorder. The tripod works great and the platform always stays in place. The velcro strap rocks and allows you to place this on posts, trees, etc. to get the shot. I have purchase several of these in the past and I am back again.

                          I use this tripod on my lumix fz200 (24X zoom). While its not an SLR (this would not hold an SLR) the fz200 isn't a pocket camera, and this thing holds it quite well. It's small enough to travel with also. The best part is the strap, which can easily be attached to various places and hold the camera well. Love it. It doesn't unfold super quickly, but I'm okay with it as it isn't slow either.

                              Use this with an Olympus EPL1. The "ball and socket" mount doesn't slip, with the kit lens, if it's really tight. If you were to velcro the Ultrapod 1 (1.84oz) to a tree say, the body of the camera is to wide (4 7/8in or 12.4cm) to position the camera 90deg to the tree to take a landscape shot (although you can use something as a spacer between the pod and the tree). I would probably be better off with the Ultrapod 2, but this one works for backpacking trips; mostly taking landscape shots.

                                I got it to use with my Contour camera. I love the fact that it comes with a velcro strap which make it easy to strap on almost anything, like a backpack strap or trekking pole.

                                    This is a great little mount for the GoPro camera (But be sire to buy a tripod mount for your GoPro.) Worked well in the few weddings I have used it in.

                                      I run photo workshops using 25 Flips, and keep these tripods attached to the cameras at all times. Makes a useful handle or body brace, as well as table-top tripod.

                                        The tripod you can always have with you. I've had one for 15 years or more and used it with about 6 different cameras, lately a Lumix LX5. Even the velcro still works. One useful feature that is not usually mentioned is how you can compensate for an off-center tripod mount like the LX5's.

                                          I use this tripod any time I can to keep the focus of the photos as sharp as possible. It is also great for outdoor landscape/scenery photography because the velcro strap gives it a much more versatile function when there is not a surface available for a tripod. This one is made in the USA, very durable, and is the lightest tripod I've ever held. The weight factor alone makes it outstanding for serious travelers. Also, the mounting joint allows both vertical and horizontal orientation of the camera, at least with a large non-SLR camera. The only drawback I have about this tripod is that I don't always like to carry it around in my pocket, and it may not fit in small camera bags.

                                                I had a need for a compact tripod and this one more than meets my need. I was able to mount it on one of my mic boom stands to do a music video and it doesn't take up alot of room. I also am a backpacker and this is very light weight and utilitarian. It's made in the USA!
