1.0 out of 5 stars The idea is brilliant with the worst construction quality ever!!!, 29 Mar. 2011

This review is from: Hama Table-Top Tripod with Removable Telescopic Tube (Accessory)
A bought this tripod to take it on a snow trip and carry it with me during the day.
The 3D metal sphere lasted one day! After that it wouldn't stay fixed, so i removed the 3D sphere part and used the camera (a small light camera) directly on the tube screw.
Next day, while extending and locking the tube, it made a "crack" sound. Apparently its not supposed to be used with regular locking strength because it's so fragile! It never locked properly since.

When I came back home, I used it one more time with the base tripod part attached. Then the bottom of the tube got unglued from the foam part. Well, it's an important part of the tripod, because from there on it completely fell apart into pieces.

The only part that is still intact is the tripod. The tube is trashed.

Note: I'm a careful guy when it comes to photo/recording equipment. I just wanted a small tripod + tube that wouldn't auto-destroy with regular use in such a short period of time.

I now feel that i should have purchased a better and more expensive tripod in the same category. Will think twice before buying from hama again.
