    Comments about Cullmann Alpha 1500 Tripod with 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head:

    This tripod is lightweight and great for taking places, but is not tall enough for a grown person (5'10") to use while standing. It only stands about 3 or 4 ft tall, even with the top fully cranked up. However, this tripod is perfect for backpacking and for taking on a bike ride if you want to have a tripod for pictures. My D3100 seemed to be about the heaviest camera this tripod could handle

      THere were no instructions. I had not used one before. I was seeing what the crank handle was and I broke it. I am not pleased with your product.

      Comments about Cullmann Alpha 1500 Tripod with 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head:

      The tripod is a nice small tripod but the description says it is 14.1" long when collapsed. It measures 16.1" when collapsed. Still fits into space that I bought it for but I was expecting 14.1". [...]

      Comments about Cullmann Alpha 1500 Tripod with 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head:

      Feels a little wobbly and is not that tall. I would not put a heavy and expensive camera on here, but rather a small point a shoot.
