Customer Review

on 23 January 2012
I spent a lot of time looking at various options for a compact tripod that could be used out and about and this fits the bill nicely.

Light weight (I didn't notice it in a thigh pocket on a 3 mile walk) but as it brings the camera up to about waist hight you can still take a group picture at a sensible level (no more balancing on a near-by wall). It comes in two sections, a "self portrait" extending arm and a table top tripod that combined to give it hight; this makes it it is quite versatile other than this so will be generally handy to have while the ball and socket head means if you do have to use it on uneven ground then you can level things out without having to prop up the legs.

It does lack any instructions but those given in other reviews help a lot. I am yet to test the build quality but it doesn't feel amazingly robust and it would be of very limited use with a heavy camera such as an SLR, the table top section would be ok for occasional use but I wouldn't recommend trying it fully extended.

My biggest criticism is the lack of a quick release attachment, but I fear this is because I've been spoiled by my gorilla pod.
