      I bought this tripod to hold one of my Sunpak 555 handle-mount flashes. It seems pretty solid with positive locking and mostly metal components. It has a handy suction cup on the bottom of the center column if you're using it on a smooth surface. Footprint is fairly wide and it's pretty stable with the center column down. Ball head action is pretty good with positive locking. It doesn't have a return spring in the mounting collar, so you either have to loosen the ball head or turn the whole tripod to screw it into a flash/camera. Overall it seems pretty solid - it would be nice if it had 2 sets of locking collars for the legs - instead there are 3 segments for each leg with one locking collar and a spring-loaded pin.

      My only serious gripe is the plastic molded center piece. All other parts are metal - why couldn't they make such an integral part metal as well?? When this plastic part cracks, the entire tripod's structure is compromised - I've seen it happen with other cheap tripods.

      It's nice and small when collapsed - I keep it in a sock to protect it while it's in the stand bag with other grip equipment.

      was good while it worked but one of the parts that hold the leg is already broken so it will not hold up.

        Comments about Sunpak MiniPro Plus with Ballhead:

        It's an inexpensive tripod, and really not bad for the price. I'm just not too keen on the locking mechanism for the legs, and the 'suction cup' feature is fairly useless for me as it doesn't reach a table top even with all legs fully retracted and legs spread as far as possible. I still give it 4 stars as the price is still good and I'm not returning it as it will work for my specific need, but I wouldn't buy it a second time.

            We operate an ID Card office and had been using a much larger tripod. This works just as well and takes up only a few inches of counter space.

                I bought this tripod to hold one of my Sunpak 555 handle-mount flashes. It seems pretty solid with positive locking and mostly metal components. It has a handy suction cup on the bottom of the center column if you're using it on a smooth surface. Footprint is fairly wide and it's pretty stable with the center column down.

                  I purchased 2 of these tripods to support my Glidetrack slider. I screw one into each end of the slider to use in areas that are uneven such as creeks or hillsides. They are sturdy and versatile. I chose the ball heads because I can set the slider at any angle I'd like. They still allow me to shoot from a low angle.

                  I recently purchased a slider and in some situations I can't lay the slider directly on the ground because of the slope etc. I like the low angle slider shots so I was looking for a sturdy, low, well built tripod with a ball head to mount my slider onto. The MiniPro Plus looked like it would fit the bill, so I ordered it and B&H got out to me real quick. I must say that it was a great purchase. Now that I see the quality of the tripod, I will be ordering a second one to mount at each end of the slider.
