      If you have a light weight camera and a bit of a light weight wallet, this is the perfect tripod for you! The reason I picked this product was because it was heavy enough for my camera, a good length, and came with it's own bag! The bag that it comes with can also be used a camera bag for a smaller camcorder or digital camera, which is really great for the casual photographer or for filming special family events, because it is all in one bag! And for a very low price.

      The good: it is a tripod, and it serves the purpose well. The extra table-top tripod is an added benefit. The ability to attach the camera horizontally and take pictures in macro mode is also useful.
      The bag that comes with it holds the tripod well. It also has a pouch for a camera, but a small point-and shoot one. Do not expect to fit a larger camera into it, let alone a DSLR.
      The bad: the plastic parts used in this are CHEAP and do not sturdy. The clamps hold the aluminum legs in place, but gives a shaky feeling of the construction. One of the clamps would not lock in place. It was actually embarrassing, since I bought it as a gift, and after giving it to the person, we wanted to put a camera on it right away and take a picture, but the clamp would not work and almost sent the camera to the floor. I had to take the clamp apart and add a small metal square to give it some hold. Afterwards it was alright. The other plastic fixtures with the thread are made of cheap plastic, including the little bolts and nuts, which is questionable how long they will actually last. Just turning them made me think they were going to break right there and then, so I tried to be very careful.
      I expected better stronger materials and construction. Maybe it is the reason why the price was so cheap.
      Definitely not for professional use, but for very occasional use, otherwise I would not be surprised if it breaks really quickly.

        This tripod is best used for smaller handheld type camera's.
        ------Pros-------
        -Price
        -The ability to use the handle along with the mini tripod for unique camera shots.
        -Comes with a decent case to cary your tripod camera ect...
        -Light Weight.
        -------Cons------
        -Does not seem very sturdy when the legs are extended all the way.
        -Not the greatest quality overall
        -Pan and tilt are not very fluid.
        -I would not recommend using any camera that is over a couple of lbs.
        ------------------------------------------------
        Overall the tripod is about what I expected for the price. I think it is worth purchasing for casual users w/ small camera or camcorders. If you have an expensive consumer or pro camera I would not recommend this.

          This is a multi-functional camera tripod and allows you to use different setups with multiple cameras or light sources for various angles that you may want the pictures in...
          Worth the money but don't expect it work work for DSLRs.

          Use this tripod for amateur documentary interviews; while it is not the sturdiest product it remains standing, is easy to use and does the job.

          The coolest thing is that it comes with a case and a mini tripod, which can be used to hold up a camera on a table.

            Keep in mind that this tripod is extremely inexpensive, and is NOT designed for holding professional cameras. With that being said, I purchased 2 of these babies to mount my DSLR Slider Dolly, and they work just fine. In fact, I was surprised to see how the mini tripod fits inside the handle of the full-sized tripod. Combine that nifty feature with the carrying case (includes side pouch), you can't go wrong for the price!

                  Pros: lightweight and very adjustable, inexpensive.
                  Cons: very lightweight, if you want to change settings on the camera, pan, or tilt while recording you will shake the camera because everything is so light these days.

                  I used the camera stand to record a ballet and it obviously works great to hold the camera still, but panning isn't the smoothest.

                  While using this tripod for the very first time, a piece of the plastic supposedly broke while trying to tighten the screw, per my colleague. Perhaps too much force was being used - need to be gentle/careful? Perhaps you get what you pay for? It still works I was told. Just needed inexpensive/basic tripod.

                    I wanted to buy a starter tripod for my 9 years old son and was surprised how useful it turned out to be. The tripod is very sturdy and easy to use (it even has a leveling buble), the table top tripod that comes with the kit is a nice little surprise because it is housed inside the large tripod's handle, it is easily accessible, it can be used independently, and it can be attached to the large tripod to hold an external flash and has several other uses. I am very pleased with this kit.

                            This is exactly what I needed. It's small enough to take anywhere. When I take videos of my grandkids they are always more interested in taking the video, but now I can record the fun stuff and be a part of it, instead of in the background. It probably isn't for the serious photographer, but for me it's perfect.

                              Ultra light weight, used for backpacking. The camera attachment plate, is plastic and slightly warped but will due for panoramas.

                              The good: it is a tripod, and it serves the purpose well. The extra table-top tripod is an added benefit. The ability to attach the camera horizontally and take pictures in macro mode is also useful.
                              The bag that comes with it holds the tripod well. It also has a pouch for a camera, but a small point-and shoot one. Do not expect to fit a larger camera into it, let alone a DSLR.
                              The bad: the plastic parts used in this are CHEAP and do not sturdy. The clamps hold the aluminum legs in place, but gives a shaky feeling of the construction. One of the clamps would not lock in place. It was actually embarrassing, since I bought it as a gift, and after giving it to the person, we wanted to put a camera on it right away and take a picture, but the clamp would not work and almost sent the camera to the floor. I had to take the clamp apart and add a small metal square to give it some hold. Afterwards it was alright. The other plastic fixtures with the thread are made of cheap plastic, including the little bolts and nuts, which is questionable how long they will actually last. Just turning them made me think they were going to break right there and then, so I tried to be very careful.
                              I expected better stronger materials and construction. Maybe it is the reason why the price was so cheap.
                              Definitely not for professional use, but for very occasional use, otherwise I would not be surprised if it breaks really quickly.

                                    If you have a light weight camera and a bit of a light weight wallet, this is the perfect tripod for you! The reason I picked this product was because it was heavy enough for my camera, a good length, and came with it's own bag! The bag that it comes with can also be used a camera bag for a smaller camcorder or digital camera, which is really great for the casual photographer or for filming special family events, because it is all in one bag! And for a very low price.

                                      This is a great travel tripod. It is very compact and light weight. (I have never seen one lighter for it's size.) It might not be the strongest but will work very well for compact digital and video cameras. The carrying bag/camera bag is a nice extra which is included.

                                      Is this tripod handy and convenient? Yes. Does it get the job done? Yes. Am I going to buy a better one when this one breaks? Yes. This is a great product for a casual user, but it definitely won't hold up to regular use. But, that is to be expected for the price. Actually, for the price, its great; it has a ton of features that are pretty nice. But if you're even slightly serious about you photography/ filming, you definitely want something a little more hefty.
