versatile, absolute steal – 9-inch Flexible Desktop Digital Camera Tripod - Large (3KG Load Max) Reviews

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

Pros:
Holds my lightweight DSLR (40D), with a real lens on it (30 year old metal and glass 105mm f2 prime with metal hood). It's not going to balance well with a long telephoto, but it's been great for me. Offers great versatility when you pair it with an IR remote.
Cons:
People not familiar with this type of tripod may be startled by it. I have a neighbor who thought it was a sex toy. In other words, not a subtle item.
Other:
Mine has held up for more than a year! I usually end up jamming it in the corner or the top of my camera bag.
Bottomline:
If you've been eying the name-brand version, grab this one. It's a low-risk way to expand your photography. It's also worth it to get the one rated for a higher load you get more options.
