    I purchased a Sharx Security VIPcella-IR SCNC2700 wireless IP camera for our facility. We need quick mobile monitoring where a normal mounting system would never work. So I purchased this tripod in hopes our IP Camera would fit...and guess what? It did! It worked PERFECTLY for our problem. The tripod itself folds up very nice and tight, and again works great for a mobile solution. And given the price, this is a outstanding deal!

    It also came with a case. The triod fits in it just fine. It doesn't fit with our IP camera attached.. which is a given, but I wish it did for mobility sakes. But we just leave it hang out the top which is not bad either.

    Overall I reccomend this. If you have a heavy camera however...keep in mind this stand is quite light. A IP Camera is light, so I have no problem with it. The shipping was a little expensive..but overall worth it.

    Useful for taking pictures at night, for panoramas or for that "tack sharp" landscape picture you always wanted to have.
    The quality of the product is medium (average). Good things about it are the price, stability and the fact that you have it "up and running" very quick. The bad ones are that it is kind of heavy and does not have that professional look and construction if you analize the joints and bindings.
    Its low height doesn't make it very good for portraits of standing people because it limits your image composition since you can not take a picture at the eye level of the subject.
    Other than that it does its job very good especially when you consider its low price.

        Was looking for a medium height, medium duty tripod for Sony NEX w/telephoto for travel and hiking. This was on sale under $[*] & got good reviews everywhere.Sets up quick and easy. Pans smoothly. Does not feel cheap or flimsy. Very sturdy. Legs seem strong. Fits easily in carry-on luggage.Feels like a more expensive item. Very happy with a good deal.

                  This is a sturdy budget tripod with a couple of shortcomings:

                  1) It's short (~4ft tall) so keep that in mind.

                  2) The head can be tilted to the right to allow for portrait shots, but at its left-most position it unfortunately is not level.

                    Initially I was disappointed with the purchase because I did not think it met my height requirement. But, I was elated to discover that I was able to extend the top portion that supports the camera. The price was awesome & I really enjoy using the tripod.

                    If you're a professional, this obviously isn't the tripod for you. But it is lightweight, sturdy, adjustable in as many ways as most people will need it to be, and it's affordable. It came with a free carrying case when I ordered it, which made this a great deal at less than $[$]. It will work great for indoor sessions, which is where I do most of my shooting.

                      I just returned from a 12-day African safari in Tanzania, and I captured the adventure in more than 3000 photos. A tripod is absolutely essential in creating great shots, and the Sunpack 2001UT Tripod fit the bill on my trip. It is lightweight, came with a shoulder-slung case, easily-adjustable with a wide variety of heights, and quick to set up, and also allowed for great video. It also allowed me to be in the pictures with my friends when no one was around to take our photo. I would set up my camera on the tripod, focus, and then set the timer. I was 100% satisfied.

                        The tripod will stand up. That's cool. Aside from that, it's not great. It crinks and cracks as you try to pan or tilt.

                          I was willing to pay more than double the price of this tripod but this unit had everything I needed. My chief concern was the smoothness of the head because it was being used as a backup for video. Although not as good as a much more expensive tripod, it was quite acceptable. Build quality is good. Judging by its price you would assume it is much more cheaply made. I couldn't imagine a better value for your money!

                              This tripod does what its supposed to, keeps a camera nice in steady and keeps everything nice and secure. I'm really pleased with the leg brace lock in the middle just to be sure nothing moves.

                                We use it with our flip cam and works great, easy set up and stable.

                                  I needed a tripod for my calibration mic on my Home Theater Receiver. After attaching my microphone to this tripod, I was able to place it at the approcimate ear level height fo all four of the seating positions I was calibrating. Highy recommended.

                                    This is an awesome tripod. It is durable, clean, strong and such a great value. Would highly suggest for beginner to intermediate level or semi pro photographers.

                                        An amazing tripod at an amazing price. It opens easily to the required height and provides two camera mounts which allows fast changing from one camera to another. The tripod is sturdy and professionally looking.
