If you are looking for a cheap tripod this is the one to get. The flexible design makes it a lot more useful than a normal small tripod.
There is a very handy quick release as well.
It is a lot lighter than I expected but it doesn't make it unstable, just nicer to carry in a bag.
The construction seems pretty good, but for this price I'm going to expect it to loosen up and break at some point. However I don't think it'll happen too soon.
Also I wouldn't bother with the smaller ones unless you have one of the really small cameras. This large one seems to be just right for my compact.
This is a great for shooting video on a small camera. You can get a good grip from one leg and use two others to support the camera against your arm. Or you could grab two legs and use one leg as a monopod.
There re a lot of options but the main thing is that if you use your digital camera or a small camcorder for shooting video this will help you eliminate a lot of the shake.
Want a cheap tripod for a compact camera or a camcorder? Just get this one.
