      I just got my Flip action tripod and it works great. It securely holds my Flip video on my ski helmet. It also works as a mini tripod on a table top or other flat surface. It also works on top of a ski or trekking pole to use as a monopod. The mounting screw is a standard tripod mounting screw so it will work with virtually any small camera.

      All of the adjustment is done with 1 knob, I think 2 adjustment knobs would have been nicer. However the single knob design does make it much more compact.

      All in all it's a great little tool.

      I attached it to my Flip video camera in order to secure it to my bicycling helmet while mountain biking. If the trail wasn't so bumpy, it may have worked OK. But because I'm constantly riding over logs, roots, boulders, etc., the weight of the camera kept causing the unit to move its position on the tripod. Therefore, the unit constantly changed its position and scenes were not being recorded properly.

          This worked great except it takes time to get it angled right. Once it was up on my helmet it was like hit or miss to get the balanced shot I wanted. One time I did it crooked and another time it was pushed too far forward. But still good!

          Comments about Flip Video Action Tripod:

          As a table top tripod this works perfectly, but where it excels is as a helmet, or chest cam mount. It's single knob and ball pivot allow any kind of configuration, to handle all compact video and still cameras,unlike most other tripods. The velcro straps snap in place and can be removed when not needed, or you can add your own cinching velcro to give a more secure mounting to helmets, packs, handlebars,etc..

                    Works fine, cheap plastic but still pretty sturdy. Used on my bike, guitar and my puppy. Velcro straps have a good hold, though I wish the straps had some type of tightening mechanism like a guitar strap.

                    Would recommend to anyone on a budget.

                            I ran this little tripod through the gauntlet shooting a Documentary on a horse back riding therapy camp for kids and I found that the locking screw for adjusting the angle of the head is very hard to tighten. the camera would come lose after a few minutes, i think it's a combination of the top heavy flip camera and that the hard to tighten lock screw. it's just to small to get a good grip on. a single lever design would allow more pressure to be applied. but other than that it's the next best thing to a GoPro and mount.

                              Does exactly as advertised, mounts pretty securely to anything you can fit the straps around. I think the biggest object you could strap it on would be around the skinny part of a side mirror on a car, also one of the best [$] desk tripods I've used, doesn't seem to be as flimsy as most in this size and price range. Especially perfect for flip bu I imagine it will work with any camera that's not too heavy.

                                The straps can be a bit awkward. They are incredibly useful, however, so the minor struggles I have are worth it. Holds the camera steady, does what it should.

                                  I got the Action Tripod for use with a different type of camcorder. I've used it on a bike helmet, attached to an airsoft gun as a gun-cam, and even attached to my forearm as a wrist cam. It is sturdy, light, and incredibly versatile.

                                    I just got my Flip action tripod and it works great. It securely holds my Flip video on my ski helmet. It also works as a mini tripod on a table top or other flat surface. It also works on top of a ski or trekking pole to use as a monopod. The mounting screw is a standard tripod mounting screw so it will work with virtually any small camera.

                                    All of the adjustment is done with 1 knob, I think 2 adjustment knobs would have been nicer. However the single knob design does make it much more compact.

                                    All in all it's a great little tool.

                                          Comments about Flip Video Action Tripod:

                                          I attached it to my Flip video camera in order to secure it to my bicycling helmet while mountain biking. If the trail wasn't so bumpy, it may have worked OK. But because I'm constantly riding over logs, roots, boulders, etc., the weight of the camera kept causing the unit to move its position on the tripod. Therefore, the unit constantly changed its position and scenes were not being recorded properly.
