Flimsy

Not worth it. Better off spending a little more on something more sturdy.

I bought this for my wife to mount a PIVO unit to video herself horseback riding with her iPhone. It’s lightweight, quick to set up, and easy to mount with the thumb wheel screw.

I have used it 2 times already and it's very nice, I needed a tripod with the vertical feaufure and it works great. I was a little bothered by the way it got here because the outside box was kind of smashed (bu that's the post office fault). It very compact and light and I love the carrying case.

It's much better quality than the nobrand tripod it replaced. I have been using several Manfrotto Tripod in the past. It's the go to brand. For the purpose of my need, this is good.

Camera Does Not Lock in Place

By Raymond

This tripod was a disappointment because when screwing my Canon EOS M50 on top it does not lock in place and always moves out of position. If this occurs with my lighter weight Canon EOS M50 this miserable tripod probably drops more quickly out of the locked position with a heavier camera. Warning - do not waste your money on this poorly constructed tripod!

Perfect

Have a number of Manfrotto tripods. Needed a small light weight one and this was perfect.

Can this hold my Nikon D610 with a Rokinon 14mm for astrophotography?

It will hold your camera but I would definitely recommend a tripod that is far more stable for astro photography. Click the link below to view; https://bhpho.to/3gBNPFs

Could you explain why 9 pounds minimum load capacity. Canon EOS RP and 35 RF no more than 850 grams with filter and lens hood. Less than 2 pounds. BEST ANSWER: Hi, I would not recommend this tripod for that camera and lens combination. I would recommend a minimum load capacity of 9 lbs for that. (less) Boyd Staff on Mar 28, 2020
Asked by: Colin
Edit to correct … My bad! I had this confused with another lightweight tripod I purchased for my D500 … The tripod you are asking about was purchased for my wife's D5500. This camera is VERY light and works well on this tripod, though my observations are still the same as previously indicated. Sorry for the confusion!

Asked by: Colin
The Canon RP can mount on this tripod and it will hold it, but it is a simple tripod. Does not offer ease of use as higher end tripods allow. Head does not have friction control to help to hold the camera as you set the angles. The knobs aren't the strongest to withstand long term use.
