4.0 out of 5 stars Portable Tripod
Ok as travel tripod - a little flimsy under some conditions but extremely portable and excellent for the job it is meant for.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pay cheap, get nasty.
I realised that I was buying a lightweight tripod to replace another "good brand" portable tripod I had, but I didn't realise just HOW light it would be. The lowest section of the legs are incredibly thin so that I'd be doubtful about resting a memory card on it never mind an SLR and, when fully extended, anyone in a portrait shot would have their head cut off while...

This review is from: Ex-Pro DigiPod TR-130S Professional Photographic Camera / Camcorder Tripod (350mm - 1060mm) 40" Travel Tripod, Spirit Level, Fast Install (Suitable for Nikon Coolpix, Canon, Casio Exilim, Fuji Finepix, Kodak Easyshare, Panasonic Lumix, Olympus, Pentax Optio, Samsung Digimax, Sony Cyber-shot / Alpha & more) (Electronics)
I realised that I was buying a lightweight tripod to replace another "good brand" portable tripod I had, but I didn't realise just HOW light it would be. The lowest section of the legs are incredibly thin so that I'd be doubtful about resting a memory card on it never mind an SLR and, when fully extended, anyone in a portrait shot would have their head cut off while landscapes would only get the ground immediately in front of the tripod feet (before it fell over, of course). Meantime, the photographer gets a VERY sore back.

I wouldn't have bothered to review this at all if it hadn't been for the ridiculous "returns" procedure (which didn't work) and have resorted to asking Amazon to cancel the order. No doubt my troubles have only started, though. Verdict: it's certainly cheap, but you can see why.

Great value. Perfest for beginners just getting the hang of their dlsr, however a bit flimsy for professional photographers or outside. At full extention very shaky. But cant fault price and very very light so perfect for tourists wanting better shots without the weight of a professional tripod

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as expected, 22 July 2013

The device is too short for any meaningful out door use. I can only recommend it as a toy not a tool.

This soon broke-the legs warped and it wouldn't take the weight of my bridge camera when I tried to use it to take photos at Prior Park. Be warned-this is just a lightweight option for compact cameras.

I needed a starters tripod for when I first bought my camera - this did the trick but it isnt very advanced. It is definitly for beginners. Does what you'd expect and is very sturdy and lightweight.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice tripod, smaller than expected..., 19 April 2011
This review is from: Ex-Pro DigiPod TR-130S Professional Photographic Camera / Camcorder Tripod (350mm - 1060mm) 40" Travel Tripod, Spirit Level, Fast Install (Suitable for Nikon Coolpix, Canon, Casio Exilim, Fuji Finepix, Kodak Easyshare, Panasonic Lumix, Olympus, Pentax Optio, Samsung Digimax, Sony Cyber-shot / Alpha & more) (Electronics)
Its a nice tripod, very lights and easy to setup. It was a bit smaller than expected. The bold from one of the screws has come off within 1 week. But it works fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job cheaply, 5 Feb 2011

This review is from: Ex-Pro DigiPod TR-130S Professional Photographic Camera / Camcorder Tripod (350mm - 1060mm) 40" Travel Tripod, Spirit Level, Fast Install (Suitable for Nikon Coolpix, Canon, Casio Exilim, Fuji Finepix, Kodak Easyshare, Panasonic Lumix, Olympus, Pentax Optio, Samsung Digimax, Sony Cyber-shot / Alpha & more) (Electronics)
Lightweight, possibly flimsy, but does the job for my Fuji Finepix.
If you're using it for stable video then, in my case, the tilt and twist is a bit stiff but hoping it'll loosen up.
