good for really lightweight cameras – 6.5-inch Flexible Desktop Digital Camera Tripod - Red (275g Load Max) Reviews

posted by pyrocks on 05/03/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
It has 3 flexible legs that give you the ability to position the tripod the way you want. you can separate the part that connects the tripod to the camera (with a screw) from the tripod and permanently attach it to the camera. After doing so - in order to connect the tripod all you need to do is slide it into the connector.
Cons:
Although it says it supports 275g Max Load, it really isn't stable enough on 240g+ cameras, such as my Panasonic TZ5 which weighs about 245g with battery. It is designed to work with really lightweight cameras.
Other:
If your camera's tripod hole is located on the middle of the camera's body - it might work better than with my TZ5 since it's tripod hole is on the bottom left side of the camera.
Bottomline:
get this if you have a small and light point and shoot camera. nothing more.
