    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    posted by RussG on 06/15/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Cons:
    The Lock (For the ball Joint) The thing you turn to lock seems not that tight? Time will tell if it will hold up.

    Lightweight tripod for lightweight camera

    posted by berniecz on 04/27/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Very lightweight item, compact, easy to be carried. Easy fixation of camera using regular tripod screw (you can attach to virtually every still camera or video camera). Legs are expandable with ease.
    Cons:
    Can be used only with compact cameras. Leg's can't be locked (or I still haven't find the way how to do that...) in extended po...

    A bit light but ok

    posted by risoldi on 07/15/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This tripod looks nice. It is very light metal and very easy to put in your pocket. When open it is relatively stable. The screw mount is well machined and fits cameras and the like very well. The head can tilt on one side.
    Cons:
    Being so light, it can't support most cameras except the most compact ones. Also, while the head can tilt, the tripod easily to...

    works like it should.

    posted by sayadaddy on 03/23/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It works like it is supposed to. When closed is surprisingly small,but it expands to a height that is quite functional. This will fit in most small camera bags, and can be used on most cameras and camcorders. It really is metal,not cheap plastic.
    Cons:
    None really for it's size and for what most people will use it for,this just works.

    Nice..

    posted by sece1212 on 02/25/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Ok... Lets start with the pros... The build quality is ok.. It does feel a little stiff and feels like its going to break if you pull to hard.. It supported my Sony Cybershot and my sony camcorder that I bought about a year ago. It held up all night and did...
    Cons:
    The con is the price.. I mean 4.64 is kinda expensive just for this little thing..I sound cheap but it's true in my opinion.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    the mini tripod is small and lightweight, with expendable legs, and a tilt/ball rotating head, it holds smaller cameras very well, however it is unable to stand the weight of larger slr sized cameras my reason for buying was to use them as tripod for off th...
    Cons:
    the screw you have to tighten to keep it steady often comes loose and is hard to get tight, i found that turning the scrw towar...

    Mini 8" Tripod

    posted by ic2ei7 on 12/06/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    First of all, the legs can be extended for the full length and then later retracted so that it is easier to carry around. The extended part of the legs has this solid metal construction feeling. 8 inches should be just right for a mini tripod.
    Cons:
    The first thing I noticed is actually the legs are quite hard to pull out, extend, that is. I also wonder if the retracted stat...
