Very sturdy and well built product.

It is very easy to attach the webcam to the tripod and the tripod legs are easily adjusted from 4.5" to 7.25".

The handle is broke and other random pieces of plastic fell out of bag upon opening.

This is a nice solid little tripod. The emphasis is on little, but it is great for holding a web cam for Skype or whatever. It is a little guy, but has a 1/4" adjustable camera mount on top and little rubber feet on each leg. It is itsy-bitsy but nice.

Extra Note: This little tripod has telescoping legs. When the legs are collapsed it is about 5" tall. With the legs extended it is about 8" tall.

I personally do not know why more people are not buying this particular tripod on Amazon. I know Amazon has dozens of tripods to pick from, because I spent a couple of hours looking at a number of them and reading the reviews before I decided to purchase this one. I was a little nervous about the fact that there were only two reviews, but they were both five star reviews and I also opted to trust the Polaroid name. I take videos and photographs for family purposes, so I am not a professional. I will not be using this tripod all of the time, but I wanted one available to me for those situations when it might come in handy. I was shopping for the best quality tripod for the lowest price.... preferrably under $50.00.

This tripod is everything I had hoped for, considering what I paid for it. It seems to be well constructed, and has all of the adjustment capabilities that I would ever need for my purpose. It has a heavy duty appearance, and there is nothing cheap looking about it visually. The legs, central shaft, and leg braces are black painted aluminum. Everything else looks like it is made from a very hard and durable black plastic. The carrying case is very well made. I had no trouble setting it up right out of the box (there are no directions). After checking all of the moving parts out, I found everything to be in working order. The only "potential" weakness this tripod might have is the plastic cranking mechanism for the center shaft. But, I would be willing to bet that all tripods in the under $100 price range have the same design; including some of the very expensive tripods. No matter what the price, everything made today has moving parts made out of plastic somewhere on it.

In conclusion: For the price, this looks like a quality made tripod (it actually exceeded my expectations) that will last me for a long time.

This tripod is great! It's in a very reasonable price range and well worth every cent. Strong, durable and very sturdy. No shaking. I expect it to last me a long time before I spend money on a more expensive tripod.
I currently use it for a Canon Rebel. No assembly needed. I am over 6ft tall and it stands taller than me when fully extended. It's a great buy. No disappoitments here.

Its perfect for self-timer shots when travelling.
I got this and wondered what those who gave it a poor review could possibly want or expect for eight bucks...
Regardless of price, it is exactly what I was looking for. Small, well constructed, rugged, swivel head.
I travel, primarily on motorcycle, and keep this in my tank bag. When I want to take a self-photo I screw camera to this, which lets me place it on irregular surface (rocks/gravel/whatever), and get the shot without concern for trying to wedge just-the-right-sized-pebble under the camera, only to get everything in the frame, pressing the self-timer shutter, and watching the camera tumble.

I bought the Celestron SkyMaster Giant 15x70 Binoculars with Tripod Adapter. These binoculars are heavy and large and require a tripod for practical use. My regular tripod was not tall enough to allow me to use the binoculars without bending over some, which would be difficult for my back to handle. But this one is 6 feet tall, which is really nice.
I worried that this tripod would not be heavy duty enough to hold the binoculars, as they weigh about 3 pounds, but it's really perfect. This tripod has a nice carry handle permanently attached to it, and all of the parts seem well made. It also comes in a nice carrying case,and has the quick mount attachment. I'm glad I chose a brand name like Polaroid.

Just what I needed for my camera and for my new webcam. It may wobble a bit if I don't tighten it, but that's a minor issue.

I wanted a tripod that would fit into a medium size camera bag without being in the way and without being so short that I couldn't use it for anything. This tripod was the answer to my prayers and it can extend to nearly 4 feet almost instantly and collapses even faster into a stable 11-inch tripod perfect for counter-top or close to floor shots.

When I was first looking at this tripod I couldn't tell how it worked so I was skeptical until I got it; it has 8 sections total, and to extend, simply pull the legs out and they each lock with a spring-loaded ball-bearing. Then twist the leg slightly to tighten. This last step enable to you to adjust the top section for uneven surfaces if needed. To collapse, un-twist the leg and push the sections back inside all together.

Fully extended it is not really very solid but it won't fall, break or collapse on you either. I put a large Canon 60D on it and as long as I'm not shaking the camera it's just fine (as the legs flex underneath it...)The head is fully adjustable and can swing down to do portrait shots too, all with the single handle adjustment.

Conclusion:

The convenient size, speed and weight of this tripod makes it worth having in your camera bag all the time.
