I often use it with my mini camcorder even when I am filming while walking around, because I find it easier to keep the camcorder steady when holidng it by gripping the tripod with both hands than by holding the mini camcorder itself like a mobile phone. The fact that the legs fold up is especially useful for this because I can fold them up as though my camcorder is attached to a stick making it easy to get a good grip, but when I need to stand the camcorder on a table, I can do by unfolding the legs.
When you do want whatever you intend to attach the tripod to to be completely still you will need a table to put it on otherwise you will be filming on the ground looking up at your subject. You would probably want to buy a large tripod with long legs designed to suit that purpose if you know you are going to be filming situations when there isn't something to put it on.
However, where this tripod is really beneficial is when you just want a tripod you can easily take with you wherever you go. This is perfect in that case because it is so small and lightweight.
It is made by the people who make flip video cameras and is aimed at being used with those, but they can be used with any device that has a standard tripod connection - I have used it with other mini camcorders and my digital camera.
One of the most popular type of tripods this size is the gorillapod. I have to say it probably isn't as good as that because that has more flexible legs. For that reason mostly, I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, I also considered the fact that it won't suit everyone because it isn't as suitable for some things as larger tripods, it really does depend what you want it for.
So, for me it's perfect, you will have to consider whether it suits your needs.
The three legs give it good stability and some degree of angling the camera can be achieved by moving the legs. It is most stable when all three legs are firmly on a hard surface and this works well for filming anything directly in front of the camera. Where the tripod is lacking is that it isn't very stable if you try to position it to film up or down at an angle - a small degree of tilt can be achieved but not as much as with some other versions of tripods.
The top of the tripod screws firmly into the Flip camera base and holds it securely in place.
I liked that there were different coloured feet to use. The most sensible look was with the standard black rubber feet it already has attached. However, I couldn't help myself and I had to try each of the colours out - I did go back to the black in the end.
I think for outdoor use or for more flexibility of filming from above or below then I might look at getting another tripod - I didn't really think about this when I first purchased it.
The flip Tripod came today. Vey fast service again from Amazon. The item is made very well and does the Job. The legs are moveable and bendable to achieve the position you want. This will come in handy It also comes with replaceable coloured rubber feet, so if you want your feet to be a different colour then you can change them. Dont know why you would, but you can. Overall this item is well worth the money and is a great addition to your flip video cam. So buy it !
Anyway, it's small. Because of that, it's only going to be of use on a handy desk/table/whatever, and you need to see the Flip's screen (so you can see where the camera is pointed at!).
But it's quite good, in a bendy-manouverable-type way, and it coms with different colour feet so you can change em to suit mood - or so they go with you're Flip's camera, so I'm told. I like the mood thing more though.
