This is a very lightweight tripod. I have a Canon T31 DSLR and with the 55 - 250 zoom lens the camera tends to pull slightly forward on the tripod. Nonetheless, for the money and for occasional use in situations requiring a tripod, this is not a bad deal. I would not take it out into the wilds and expect it to hold up for long. It is easy to set up and re-fold and most importantly, it is very portable. When in its supplied bag, it easily attaches to the bottom of my camera bag with straps and is always available. If you are looking for an easily carried tripod for only occasional use, this might be useful for you as it is for me. If you are looking for something that will hold the camera, a big lens and a dedicated flash, this is probably too light.

I read several reviews that brought up the "flimsy" construction. I believe they were missing the point. This is not meant to hold up a 50 lb camera in gale force wind. It will; however, work great for holding up a typical family camera while being light enough to carry around.

Lets start off by being very Clear!!! This is is A $12 dollar Tripod ok !!?? its not a Pro set up, it's not a $100 Dollar set up . It only cost $12 bucks and for that price Its Frakkin awesome !!!!!! its fully adjustable all three legs have 3 sets of clamps for multiple heights there is a built in liguid level to let you know if the the tripod is not level . Its just sexy I could'nt be more pleased .
This is the kind of tripod you need if you make youtube videos or how to videos or if you take pics of hobbies . its aluminum and plastic so while its great for STABLE STATIONARY USE IT'S NOT FOR RUGGED OUTDOOR USE !!!! I get tired of reviews where people give negative comments because they tried to use the product beyond its limitations .
I bought this to use for tutorial videos that I do on youtube and its perfect .
Thank you that will be all!!!

Special note: It appears that some think my rating is a little harsh based on the price of this tripod. I wanted to clarify that while some of my comments sound like I am rating it low because it doesn't perform like an expensive tripod, that is not the case. This starter tripod certainly made me appreciate more expensive tripods (and convinced me that it wasn't worth my time or money messing with these throw aways), but in and of itself still does not have the features that I've seen on other tripods that I've received for free in bundles. At a minimum, if you need a dirt cheap tripod, I'd go for the Ravelli APLT4 tripod so you can benefit from some additional features. My original review and updates follow:
==============================================================================================================================

I wanted something that I could take with me on hikes that was light, compact and something that I wouldn't fret over getting damaged (inexpensive). This just fits in my day pack, so it qualifies. You can certainly tell that its an inexpensive piece from holding it, but I think it will do the job. Just cant beat the price!

UPDATE: Now after using this for a couple weeks, I have something to add. My main reason for getting a tripod was to do more long exposure shots, not for setting up the camera for me to be in the shot (i.e. quick shutter speed). For this, the tripod is mediocre at best. To the naked eye, it appears still, but I get blur on > 50% of my shots 1 sec or more. I even set the timer for 2 seconds to make sure the movement isn't from hitting the button.

Got this tripod as a gift from my Wife and I just loved it . I travel a lot and this tripod is just perfect for travel. Fits easily in my Bag , very light weight , so no airlines hassles and durable enough to bear the check-in bumps. As for the tripod it has 3 leg partitions which when expended makes it a very decent size tripod . I don't have a very bulky camera which weighs like 1-2 lbs , this tripod holds it very stable . Night pics came out good as expected when mounted to a tripod .Overall very good value for money for the price less than $10.00. Highly recommended for travellers.

This tripod is great value for the money as long as you have a small camera and you modify the tripod just a touch. adding a stop for the slider on the center pole makes this tripod much more stable. If you spread the legs out all the way with any of the sections extended the full length they become bendy and the structure of the tripod becomes flimsy. The length to width ratio of these legs makes them flexible if they're spread out fully because the weight of the camera isn't traveling strait down the legs, the center support structure isn't set up properly. So, to fix this all you have to do is attach your camera, extend and open the legs fully. Now grab the center column slider, with the leg supports attached to it, and slowly lift it up the column pulling the legs in until the tripod becomes stable. You'll be able to notice as there is a big difference. Place a little mark with a pencil right below the slider and then put a rubber band at the mark. Now when you open the legs the center support column will stop them at the apex of their stability like it should do and you will enjoy using this super light tripod even more. I also put a little dab of fishing reel lubricant to make the panning smoother. This tripod is perfect for an NEX 7 or any ILS or smaller, but only the lightest DSLRs with small lenses. I only gave it a four because I have only used it on nice level surfaces so far and I want to see how it performs on uneven surfaces.
