While it cannot replace a tripod, the small and easily portable UltraPod II can fold up to fit in your pocket and goes just about anywhere. When you need stablity for that long exposure or want to get yourself in the photo, this little bad boy is just the ticket. You can bring it into places they don't normally allow tripods, and the velcro strap lets you attach it to fences or trees for more point of view options.

For the price, it is truly a great deal. I humbly think every serious photographer, amerature or pro, should have one.

I've had this for over ten years. Other mini tripods and even a couple of full-size tripods have come and gone in my collection, but this one stays. In all these years, I've never had a problem with it. The silver lettering has rubbed off -- that's just cosmetic and I prefer all black anyway -- but I've never had loose vinyl feet like others have complained about. It's stiff enough for any point-and-shoot as well as most of the superzooms and digital SLRs without superlong lenses, with a weight capacity triple that of even the Gorillapod SLR. The Velcro strap is losing a bit of its grip after being peeled open many hundreds of times, but that's easy enough to replace. It's light enough that I almost always keep it with me, although it's not especially compact when folded, about the size of a small folding umbrella.

One addition that I consider invaluable (but is unfortunately very difficult to find) is the quick release head for the Ultra Pod II, for which Pedco itself (via Amazon) appears to be the only source. The quick release for the smaller Ultra Pod I is available from many places but won't fit this tripod. Nobody should have to struggle with screwing a tripod into a camera when a good picture is waiting. Especially since if you need a tripod, it's likely dark so it's hard to see, and you don't want to risk messing up the plastic threads in a camera's tripod mount. Strip those and the camera can never be attached to a tripod again. That quick release head is more secure than the ones on the Joby Gorillapods, which can sag when used to hold a heavier camera vertically. It even has a pan feature, which is used by leaving the locking knob untightened.

I bought this because my Gorilla Pod was too flimsy to hold my Canon Powershot TX1 camera.

I really like this tripod. It is very light, holds your camera very securely. It has nice long legs for added stability, but they aren't too long and can fit into a pocket easily.

The double-elbowed ball-top allows for a huge variety of different positions to mount your camera so it's level, no matter what surface you put it on. No adjusting leg lengths or anything.

The velcro strap can be used to strap this on to a variety of things, like branches or sign posts, etc... And with the swivelling ball elbows, you can actually use this with your tripod strapped onto a vertical or horizontal branch or post. Depending on how you use it, you might have to mount it on the side of the sign post, just experiment a little and you'll get it.

I've used this tabletop tripod with point and shoot cameras, camcorders, and SLRs. It works best with lighter cameras.

The ball head works decently. On lighter cameras, there's little to no sag at all. On the heavier ones, I have to tilt my camera upward a bit more to compensate for the sag that will inevitably happen. Many ball heads are susceptible to this tendency to droop anyway, so pointing it out may be moot. One issue I have with the ball head is that the base of it does not rotate. If you, for instance, mounted the tripod on the top of the guard rail (parallel to the ground, and perpendicular to you), you would only have a few degrees of movement up or down with the camera pointing straight forward. If the camera is set in portrait orientation, then the ball can be used give it more vertical range. While this works, it's still a compromise.

I definitely like the idea of using velcro to strap it to various twigs and such. I've used it on tree branches, guard rails, poles, handlebars, etc., and it's worked great. The velcro strap wraps around the tripod legs about 3 times, so it's a small nuisance to get it open. Also, if you don't want the strap to get in the way after it's opened, you would have to wrap it again, then unwrap/wrap once more when closing it. Slightly annoying, sure, but does not outweigh the ability to mount this around different objects.

With more compact cameras, I've had no issues with the stability of this tripod. With SLRs (or m4/3's), it's a bit different since longer lenses can put it off balance a bit more. I've had the tripod tip forward once due to this. Centering the camera properly on the tripod helps, using the long leg in front to prevent the camera from falling forward, lens first.

I bought one of these Ultra-Pod II table top tripods on a whim while in a camera store about 10 years ago. I've since drug it around the country with me for tens of thousands of miles, literally abusing it the whole time because it was just so inexpensive that it just didn't matter. I seriously take it everywhere with me. I'm never without it, whether I have one of my 3 full-size tripods with me or not.

I shoot heavy DSLRs, and I've used it countless times in a pinch or even as a preferred method with tree branches, signposts, fences and so on, and it's performed flawlessly for me every time.

In all that time I've owned and used it, this thing has proven to be TOUGH, solid and worth every penny! It still performs like the day I bought it.

And to answer the guy who gave it one star, no, I don't work for the company, and have no dog at all in the fight - I'm just telling my experience with it - TEN FULL YEARS of heavy-use experience with it.

It's one of the most dependable things in my photography kit, and if it ever DOES break down, I will immediately buy another to replace it.
