The SwitchKit tripod bag can be transformed into a bag that protects your camera and accessories by simply tucking the tripod bag section behind a Velcro flap. The lightweight aluminum tripod has a 3-pound capacity, making it useable with a typical consumer DSLR and short zoom lens. The Mini ball head tripod has a 2.5-pound capacity, is designed for tabletop shooting, and stores in the in the SwitchGrip tripod handle.

I bought this light tripod to mount a Kodak Zi8 Pocket Video Camera and it worked well. I recorded my daughter's Kinder graduation with this camera mounted on the tripod and set up in the back of the classroom (to record the whole class, and paired with a Canon VIXIA HFS10 camcorder for hand-held video). The Zi8 video was clear and shake-free, which would not happen if hand-held (it is too light). I also used this tripod to mount a TASCAM TASCAM DR-07MKII Portable Digital Recorder and a Sony PCM-M10 recorder with no shockmounts. Again, no problems. With the tripod, I am able to position the recorders as low or as high as needed (we recorded a jam session in a studio). Worked beautifully. The smaller tripod also works well, and is conveniently stored in the handle when not in use.

It is so portable and light that it fits my messenger bag (collapsed and in its carry bag). Recently, I have been using it with the Zi8 to record myself shooting at the range. No issues whatsoever.

I snagged this for a bit under 7 dollars, and my only regret is that I didn't buy another one for backup. At this price, I would not be heartbroken if it breaks.

Pity, isn't it? I ordered this tripod with a Lumix LX5 Camera, hoping to get a; as it says, nice lightweight travel tripod. It worked as that and I ignored the harsh smell of cheap lubricants and plastic from the tripod. That is, until it began to fall apart. Within a few hours, the plastic bolts had cracked, and the shaft fell. Upon inspection, I noticed it was because the bolts had stripped the lining of their sockets, and so it would be impossible to fix the shaft. In other words, I lost about 6-10 inches of height. Other parts cracked too, thankfully not crippling more the tripod. However, I do have to praise the portability of the tripod, even though it sacrifices sturdiness as well as...build quality. The entire set folds up into a small case, and the case can fold up into a smaller case just for your camera. To sum it up, the tripod has some excellent features and design, but poor construction and sturdiness make it NOT worth your money.

Davis & Sanford Switchkit 7-in-1 Tripod Accessory Kit

I absolutely love this kit! I thought I was gonna get a rather flimsy tripod because of the price, but I needed something immediately and my budget was limited at the time. Boy, was I surprised. Everything one needs is included and fits nicely in this compact arrangement. The on-board level has always been correct and was an unexpected add-on. I carry this kit with me with briefcase and other bags, all in one trip. The only negative aspect is that the zipper on the carry case is lightweight so be careful when zipping over the unit as the zip will separate. Considering the value and utility of this kit, who cares?

This product looked great, was very compact with a miniture tripod built in. Very portable, great carrying case. Where did it go wrong you ask? We used it. I gave it to my wife as a gift, see if she would actually use a tripod as so has began advancing her skills in amateur photography. My wife used the tripod twice. Once to set it up after unwraping, the other was when she set it up to take a family protrait at Christmas. Upon taking the camera off, the top plastic cracked rendering the tripod unuseable. I suggest looking elsewhere.

I have had several cameras and consequently tripods of all sizes, weights, etc. over the years. This tripod is the best I have ever had for the price. It is multifunctional- even allows you to attach 2 cameras at one time, it is relatively light, has a quick release shoe, a leveling bubble, and comes with a case that has an extra pocket for a camera. For the price this can't be beat.

The big tripod is VERY heavy duty. I was impressed. It's better than my more expensive one :-)

The small tripod functions great as a desk tripod and is also surprisingly sturdy. This stores in the swivel handel of the larger tripod; when I unpacked this set, I at first thought the mini-tripod was missing.

With the convienent bag, this is a VERY economical and practical set.

Highly reccommended.
