    UltraPod II Tabletop Tripod with Mini Ball Head is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 83.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not best for SLR I selected this little tripod as a gift for my spouse on the strength of the good user reviews it has received. It didn't live up to my expectations. I should have known that a professional quality mini-tripod would have a higher price tag. The head is a double ball clamp - a bit fiddly to get the camera set into the correct position and then to tighten it down without moving the camera. For a small DSLR with a medium WA lens, the little knob had to be really tightened hard to hold steady. Then it took pliers to release the screw from the camera body. This tripod is probably fine for use with a lightweight digicam, but it's less than ideal for an SLR

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from low light and travellers delite I've owned one of these for over 20 years and I have recommended them to anyone who needs a ultralight weight, sturdy desktop tripod. The velcro strap is useful to secure it to railings, chairs, and even on occassion another tripod's leg (to get a couple of cameras on a group portrait. I have even used it with a Brunton Transit (compass) to do some impromptu surveying. Over the years I have abused this thing unmercifully and it keeps on ticking. The plastic it is made of is sturdy and tough. And after 20 years the velcro is a bit ragged, but it still works great. The only gripe is that with a long unbalanced lens you have to carefully position the legs to make it stable....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outperforms competitors for much less $$ Not much can be said that hasn't already. I have many tripods of all sizes. The big metal pro ones are too heavy to throw in a small bag when traveling and the pocket sized ones are too weak for anything bigger than a point and shoot or iPhone. This one sits perfectly in the middle between the two groups. It will hold my D7000 and every lens I own, (the biggest being my 75-300 f/4.5-5.6), yet is small and light enough to always have with you. It's not just plastic, it's glass-filled nylon (stronger and durable). On any tripod, especially this one, I'd recommend using a remote or timer setting to ensure blur-free photos. This will be my tripod for vacations, day trips, and photo walks, replacing my older bulkier beanbag method. The ability to velcro it to tubes and branches gives it all the functionality of pricier flexible-leg pods. Just make sure you follow the strap directions for maximum safety with expensive gear. I'm seriously impressed with the abilities of such an inexpensive product compared to the offerings from competitors and look forward to years of use. Already recommending it to friends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy & Worth Every Penny It's well thought out design makes this a very sturdy little tripod. It folds down to a very compact size and stows easily. While I purchased this to hold a small camera or a remote flash, I tried it out with a D300 with a vertical grip mounted and a 70-300mm lens. The UltraPod held it just fine. The unique design and integral velco strap allows the UltraPod to be easily mounted to railings, branches, etc. Worth every Penny. Get one!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for point-and-shoots This report is based on using this tripod with a Canon XTi and a 40D. This tripod is very light and useful. There are some negatives though. Shooting in portrait mode (vertical) is impossible with a Canon XTi or 40D, and I'd imagine with similarly-sized cameras. It'll work fine for tiny point and shoots. The camera has to be above the thick leg or 180 from that for the best stability. The plastic is not that strong. A Canon XTi with a Tamron 17-50 f2.8 does wobble when touched. So a cable release or timer is necessary. Overall, I am happy with this tripod. I'd give it 5 stars when used with a tiny point-and shoot, and 4 stars for use with a dSLR. I haven't tried any competing products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good things come in small packages. If you are looking for a small, portable tripod that also be used as a remote flash mount, this is it. It's great for just about all cameras, but not so much if you are adding an extended battery grip. I had to use it in a pinch recently when my second tripod disappeared. I just set up my flash, connected it to the Ultrapod and used the Velcro to strap it to a near by beam. Easy set up, easy take down, and more importantly, it's light and easy to store. I think I just grabbed it from my car the day I go it and put it in a side pocket of my camera bag. Probably the best spontaneous purchase I've made this year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite small tripod of all time! This is actually the second UltraPod II that I've owned; the first one that I had for over 10 years was recently stolen from me. I liked it so much that despite the huge selection of new small tripods on the market these days, nothing compares to all the advantages of the UltraPod II for my needs so I bought it again. The fact that this tripod still exists on the market after all these years without needing any improvements to its design is a testament to its quality. When shopping for a replacement for my original stolen one, I looked at all the small tripods on display at the B&H store but always seemed to go back to the UltraPod II as being the best for my needs based on its quality and value. There may be stronger metal tripods, but they become rather heavy in comparison. The UltraPod's plastic construction is NOT weak by any means! My previous one lasted over 10 years of constant use during many hiking and trekking trips without any loss of efficiency. Screwing down the two ball heads secures cameras and lenses weighing up to 1.5 kg. The feature which initially caught my eye and differentiates this tripod from others was the velcro strap that can be fastened around objects like poles or tree branches up to 8 cm in diameter. This handy addition multiplies the likely places one can secure one's camera. After many years of use, the only thing that diminished in quality was the velcro, the hooks and loops weren't as effective at gripping as when new, but the actual tripod was as strong as ever. I highly recommend this tripod to anyone wanting a small, strong and lightweight tripod!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unstable for Canon 5DMIII This tripod is just too small and unstable for a Canon 5DMIII. The plastic head visibly shakes and vibrates a lot so this would be unusable for long exposures. With a 24-105mm lens, the lens must be over a leg in the horizontal position so it wont tip over. Immediately tips over in a vertical position. This tripod while an interesting design and made in the US just won't work for the Canon 5DMIII. I'll hang onto it for speedlights.
