    I use this compact little tripod primarily with several of my full featured, small, so-called point & shoot digital cameras, like the Canon A640, Canon A80, & the Nikon S550, particularly for shooting movies/video, in a crowded family type situation. It can very easily be set up in a non-conspicuous place, like even on a tabletop, and because of the dimunitive size, with a small camera attached to the included ballhead, I have found that it does NOT contribute to any of the subjects being "camera shy", or otherwise acting in a "stupid grin" fashion. I have occasionally also used it with my full sized body(s) SLR's, like Nikon D70 & Nikon D80, and by using the "remote" shutter release, I again am able to avoid the "fake" looking stuff that subjects do, when they know that they are "on cam" and about to have a photo made. Sure, I have 3 "full sized" tripods, and ball heads to go with them, but even amongst family, like at Thanksgiving, or Christmas, it seems to be pretty "standard" that ALL subjects get "goofy" or "posed" looking, if I set up one of my full sized units. This tiny tripod is easily carried in a pocket or purse, and even when set up, with camera mounted, seems to cause no real sensation, or false action(s) from potential subjects. It is sturdy, secure, and very stable, even up through (and including) SLR's, given "reasonable" lens sizes. I would NOT recommend/suggest it for use with something like a SLR with a 200mm-500mm zoom lens, because it can't handle that situation, and isn't built to do so. For basic lenses, like in the 50mm area on a SLR, or a "smaller" zoom, like a 18mm-200mm, or even a 28mm-300mm zoom, it is unobtrusive, unobstructive, has a small footprint, and does ALL that you would expect. I currently own two, but it is, unfortunately, currently "out of stock", but no big deal, at least to me. When it "is" back in stock, and available for order/purchase, I will order/buy 2 more. For smaller cams, or tight quarters, it can't be beat. The stability is rock solid, with the extending leg sections, height is easily adjustable, and even with a digital SLR mounted, presents/offers a very small "footprint", that subjects do not seem to view as being "fearful", so you can get actual, REAL, "candid" type snapshots, or very steady, consistant video/movies. For the price, and the value that you get, for no more expenditure than this, you ought to consider ordering/getting TWO, which would allow you to shoot the same situation from 2 different perspectives. After the event is over, and you are back home, and have uploaded the photos gained by using it/them, THEN you can decide which angle/shot/focus point was best. Without this very beneficial, small addition to your photography "arsenal", you will likely arrive back home with NOTHING! Thanks for reading my review on this item. I further suggest that, as soon as they become "in stock & available" that you get yourself a couple. Just sign up for the "notify when in stock" thingy, which even though I already own 2, I did. Use it, enjoy using it, and enjoy the MANY candid photos that it will gain you!

    The overall feel of the product was a bit tacky.
    It might be good for lighter digital cameras but not SLRs.

    good basic tripod for lightweight camera

          Comments about Sunpak 1001D Tabletop Tripod:

          I bought a few of these to use with webcams. This is one of the few that I could find that was tall enough for our needs to reach over a countertop and a reasonable price.These are great for the lightweight webcams, but I can imagine you could use these with a heavy DSLR camera without it falling over. It would probably work with a lightweight digital camera too that did not have interchangeable lenses.The only improvement that I can think of is a way to lock the legs in the extended position. There are ball bearings that come out automatically and seem pretty sturdy, but I would feel more comfortable with a true lock. However, for a lightweight webcam it is not a big deal.

            Comments about Sunpak 1001D Tabletop Tripod:

            This is a very useful & GREAT addition for any of the smaller cameras. It is particularly good for "point & shoot" (P&S) cams when capturing either video, or time delay stills. We have Thanksgiving & Christmas coming up, and this will be a very welcome addition to your photographic inventory. Attach your camera to it, set it up on a coffee table or other tabletop, & you can now be part of the "action" instead of the camera holder. I do not recommend it for full sized DSLR use, particularly with the longer tele lenses. For P&S use, however, it can't be beat!

              Excellent tripod. While I've only been using it a week, looking over its design I can't imagine it would wear out anytime quickly. Spend a few extra dollars for your mini-tripod and get this one. It will last and it will hold your camera sturdy. Mine came with a sleeve/case, too!

              It is very nice, has a good quality and seems to be resistant.

                      Comments about Sunpak 1001D Tabletop Tripod:

                      This tripod travels to the archives along with a Casio Exilim 8.1 mega pixel camera to photograph documents. Prior to buying the tripod the whole process was recreated for each document, with the tripod set up it only takes a second to flip a page and take the next shot, it raised my productivity by 300%. Once set up it's shot and scoot on.
