I bought this as we go fell walking every weekend and wanted a light tripod to fit in my backpack along with everything else, and the description said it was suitable for a SLR camera. I use the micro four third camera range, which are the smallest cameras (without including compacts), and to be honest I would not put my camera on this outside. I tried in the living room and, with the ground being level and no wind it was fine. But it is so flimsy, outside it would blow over or tipple over. If you have a small camera and are just wanting to use this in the house or garden then this will be a really good buy for you, if you are wanting to take this on walks then perhaps this isnt the one for you.

This is a great piece of kit. It is the most compact tripod that I have seen which means you are more likely to carry it with you than larger tripods. It has an easy mounting screw and rubberised holder which makes mounting your camera very easy. It has an easy handle for level adjustment and the legs are pretty basic to lock/unlock and fold away.

So the pros:

Very Small and light.
Easy and quick to setup and pack away
Good value for money

Cons:

Not built for a heavy camera
legs are a bit wobbly

On the whole this is a great tripod for what it is. When you need something small and light, this is great

This product was purchased through Netgadgets who delivered it super fast with an excellent service.

I got this for my Digital SLR after reading the reviews. Bad purchase and I was quite surprised at the flimsy quality of this product. The tripod legs have some kind of oil on them for lubrication with the result that you could transfer this to your camera lens. There is also an oily smell of your hands after touching the legs. The build quality is so weak that I could not walk away from the camera once mounted for fear that the whole thing would fall over. Avoid this if possible, it was a waste of money for me, now I got to purchase a second sturdier tripod as I did not get a chance to use it until after my return period expired.

The item I first received was defective. I didn't know that, and my first review was not good because I assumed they were all the same!

However, the supplier has since sent me a replacement which is working as it should. For a lightweight extendable travel tripod it is fit for purpose, easy to carry, and does it's job. The only complaint I still have is that there are no instructions as to how to get the extended legs to stay in place. However, someone who commented on my earlier review said you have to give 'em a twist to set them, so bear that in mind!

The supplier was most helpful in replacing the faulty item; the fact that it took a little time was my fault for not complaining directly to him!

I can happily recommend both the item and the supplier. :-)

This tripod has several great strengths.

1.)It's cheap,
2.)It's light
3.)It packs up tiny.

For those reasons it is great. However it has several MAJOR DOWNSIDES.

1.)It does not have great build quality. Everything about it feels budget. And very quickly some plastic broke of making the head much less stable. That said it still worked.

2.)The legs are very thin and bendy making it a less stable base than I would hope for.

3.)The tripod is only a metre tall - something you cannot tell by the picture.

4.)The legs have fixed lengths which means that the camera is only level on a perfectly flat surface.

5.)The panning controls are clumsy making it unsuitable for quick and steady panning and only realy good for still shots like lanscape photography.

6.)The head dips noticeable when I use my dSLR and so I would only recommend this for a compact camera. Setting up shots of small objects centred in the view finder (such as a bird on a tree in the distance) was really difficult, frustrating and time consuming because of this.

In summary you get what you pay for: a low price, very compact tripod. But for anything more than taking easy shots on a compact camera (ie a group photo using the self timer) I would advise you spend a bit more and get a proper tripod - that is what I would have done and will do in the future.

I bought this after reading the reviews that it can hold a full size dslr... it wont hold my HS10 on full zoom, it starts to droop almost immediately no matter how tight I do it up. the legs are fine upto about the third one, but WAY too wobbly and unstable after that, I suppose for occasional travel use its not bad if you're not using the zoom but if you think this will replace a full height tripod then you're sadly mistaken as I was. With the zoom lens retracted and upto the third leg it works fine, but any more than that it wobbles about like pamela anderson running on a beach.

To sum up, great lightweight tripod if you have a small camera and dont expect it to be sturdy at full height (which is a bit over a metre by the way) If you have a full size dslr or a large bridge think carefully.
