Great product – 9-inch Flexible Desktop Digital Camera Tripod - Large (3KG Load Max) Reviews

Pros:
I was surprised at the build quality of this. The joints are very stiff and gives lots of resistance.
There is no need for tools when installing this, just screw it on.
Uses standard threading for cameras so will fit on all newer SLR's and digital cameras.
Cons:
The rubber surfaces (purple color) on the joints and feet does not have very much friction.
Other:
Purple is perhaps not the nicest color, but you know it before buying.
People are saying the screw goes too short into the camera. Mine is about 5 mm which more than sufficent for any camera.
Also, I've never experienced the joints detaching from one another by accident.
Bottomline:
This is a very portable alternative to a full sized tripod.
And at 12 dollars it's only 25% of what i would pay for the brand name back home.
