For the price you definitely can't complain about this product too much. I will say when you get it, the material it's made out of looks cheap but it seems to stand up fine. I've been pressing down on it to make sure it was stable and it seems as though it is! It's not that tall but if you're just doing shots where you're sitting down it should be fine. The reason I bought this was for traveling and my huge one was definitely not coming with me. In saying that, this will do! I hope this helps you guys out!

P.S.- Also for a quicker set up I recommend letting the legs all the way out and then adjusting the neck bit the camera goes on.

The reason I'm giving this 5 stars is because for the price, you get tons of awesome features! Each of the legs on the tripod have a 4 level adjustment! The actual part where the camera connects has 3 adjustments and can be raised! Get this product if you need something cheap and quick!

First off, understand that you're getting exactly what you're paying for - a relatively cheap tripod. It is extremely light, so take that into consideration if you plan to use it with heavier equipment. It folds up to be about a foot tall and can easily be fit into a backpack or on the outside of a camera bag. When the legs are fully extended, the tripod can seem a little flimsy, especially if you have a full load of camera equipment attached to it. If you're using it to shoot a time lapse or for something where the camera needs to remain completely still, I would recommend hanging something a little heavier from the center of the tripod to weigh it down and hold it still. The platform has a bubble level, as well as a handle to rotate the camera. This is a very minimalist, bare-bones tripod that still functions well enough to help get the job done.

For the price, this tripod is great. It's extremely light, very portable, and easy to use. However, if you're looking for a professional-grade tripod, you might want to shop around before deciding. This guy is great for everyday use, especially if you're moving around a lot. I primarily use it to shoot skateboarding, so it does exactly what I need it to - be functional, lightweight, portable, and easy to use.

This product is very lightweight as mentioned in other reviews. What it lacks in weight (light weight is not necessarily a bad thing) it makes up for in an outstanding price and the options available on the unit. Anyone that has any complaint about this tripod is out of their mind. It is incredibly affordable and you get far more than what you pay for.

We were debating between this tripod and another that was about 10 times more expensive. The final decision is what anyone that is debating getting this should decide. "For this price, you cannot go wrong. If it isn't what you hope it is, you really aren't out much".

Given that this product is very lightweight, it isn't incredibly "heavy duty" I wouldn't expect that anyone would take this on safari and expect great results. But for someone that is just getting started with photography and doesn't want to spend a ton of money getting started...this is hands down the way to go.

When I first set up this tripod, I thought it looked cheap - after all, it's made of aluminum and plastic. But as I set it up for use, it didn't *feel* so cheap; it felt rather sturdy for something so incredibly lightweight. I can't speak for photographers with heavy SLRs and needing fine adjustments - I am using it for a webcam. It works perfectly for this purpose and is ever-so-economical and ever-so-portable compared with standard photographers' tripods. It's a great product!

This Review is for the 72" Monopod. I did not read every of the 450 reviews (as of 5/15), but the 72" monopod makes up about 8% of the total reviews, the others for the 50" and 72" tripods. To save you time, all the monopod reviews were 4's and 5's.

I used the monopod for a two day conference, in and out of rooms all day, and 700 shots. My camera is not a DSLR, but a much lighter Canon SX50 Superzoom (23 oz).

The best:
-Black color for less distraction
-quick and quiet leg extension and locking mechanisms
-quick release for packing camera or battery/SD card exchange

The worst:
-the quick release base that screws into the camera was built smaller than most, but it still covered my batt/SD compartment, so I had to unscrew it each time I accessed the compartment. Your camera may not have an issue, but I imagine most bottom-accessible compartments will. It is not a deal breaker and I do not see how any quick release can avoid covering a bottom compartment.
-the set screw that holds the mount sleeve to the monopod shaft failed and the camera flew off halfway through the conference. Luckily it was not a huge drop and it was on carpet. A little masking tape made the connection very tight, and it did not separate thereafter. Upon inspection, the undersized set screw was only 1 mm from the edge, and that is where the aluminum failed. You have 25 mm of space to put in a set screw, why place it 1 mm from the edge???!!!

I will reposition the set screw and maybe even add a second for security. Perhaps you should too before taking it to the field.

Overall, it was a great value for the little amout of time I will be using the monopod. It was the perfect tool for steadying indoor zoomed shots while being fast on its feet in and out of small rooms. A tripod would have been too bulky and clumsy. Another plus is that you can easily raise it above crowds and get 9-10' shots.

This light duty low cost tripod fits my needs exactly. The legs adjust easily and so does the head with bubble level. Just don't expect to mount a heavy camera on it. I mounted a small webcam on it to take ronchigrams of my telescope mirror during optical testing.

The pan head wobbled on it's elevator shaft and the elevator shaft wobbled in it's mounting at the apex of the legs EVEN WITH THE SET SCREWS TIGHTENED APPROPRIATELY, making this tripod only suitable for simulated earthquake videos. The bulls-eye level is a good idea, but the level on this tripod is about the size of a pencil eraser, and the pan head always seemed to be interfering with the view of the level, making it useless.
