It's designed to be used with small compact, sub-compact cameras and camcorders. It won't support the weight of a large DSLR so don't even try. It's not meant for heavy weights. But for small, light weight cameras it is awesome. Creative people can even figure out a way to have a flash mount on this tripod for some creative slave-lighting setups. The possibilities are huge.
The legs are about 4" in length and they form a supportive tripod base for use on a table inside or anywhere else you can think of. What makes this such a versatile piece of gear is the foot long velcro strap which opens up many more possibilities. You can attach it to a tree branch, or strap it to your car mirror. How about your bicycle handlebars (might shake around too much though depending on the camera) or some other thing that otherwise would be impossible to hang a camera from.
I've been able to get what would have been impossible shots without this little UltraPod. The ball and socket give you the ability to twist and turn the camera just so, to enable you to get the shot you need.
It's inexpensive enough that I bought a couple of them. I have one in my glove box in my car and the side pocket of my camera bag. You will find many uses for this little tripod. Highly recommended.
The gimmick with this product is the velcro strap that can be used to attach it to poles/branches/other stationary objects. Went camping with this thing and honestly, it's really hard to find any tree limbs/branches that are thin enough in circumference to allow the strap to extend around and secure safely. That was the main reason i bought it. Now, obviously, every area varies, but, still, my opinion is that you should spend the extra $5 and get the upgraded larger version of this product. Overall, a good buy and i'm satisfied, but it does leave something to desire.
The camera i used on this was an Olympus 1030 tough camera. Which i would say is of medium weight (nothing close to an slr, but definitely one of the heavier pocket cameras).
So I chose this one instead, and I'm happy I did. This little tripod is very stable. And when you have the legs folded together it makes a nice pistol grip for your pocket camera, something I don't think the wobbly segmented kind would do well.
The velcro strap is about a foot long, which means it will wrap around just about anything the bendable tripods will, and, I think, holds the camera much more safely and securely.
The head tightens nicely and doesn't slip. I tried the tripod with a Panasonic DMC-ZS3, which is fairly heavy as far as pocket cameras go, and it held securely without a bit of slip in the mounting head.
And it really is very light.
some issues that could be improved:
1) I have to find my own bag/case for each of those portable tripods, it would be much batter if a matching soft nylon case came with it.
2) when shooting vertical, this small one is not as good as the Ultrapod II, because the shorter neck of the small tripod, and not as sturdy/staple as the bigger one, of course
I like both, but this smaller modle is better to carry with compact cameras and bigger one can support DSLR with some light/normal lens weight

Nice little tripod. Good for my little camera under certain circumstances, but not in others and certainly not for a big camera. But excellent for what it is, and very portable.Published 4 months ago by 95wombat
