Product Description

The Ravelli APLT2 is a very light tripod but it still extends to a height of 50 inches. With a weight of just over 1 LB (1.15LBS) you will not be weighed down, this tripod is constructed of aluminum legs and a hard plastic head. It has the ability to change the cameras orientation from portrait to landscape. The legs have rubber feet for stability on different surfaces. The legs have 3 extendable segments for varying height. This tripod also has a extendable gearless center post for easy movement and adjustment.

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.

These are very lightweight- which, if you're using a lightweight camera, is fine. I would not recommend putting a DSLR on one. I use this to hold a field recorder (about 7oz), and that's it. Being so lightweight, they are also pretty flimsy. I should have looked closer at the picture before ordering. For just $5 more, you can get the Ravelli APLT4 61-inch (link below), which is approximately a bazillion times better built. The APLT4 is sturdy, has a quick-release, better pan/tilt controls, is taller, stronger, and only a little heavier. SO, unless you absolutely need the smallest, lightest tripod available, get the bigger model.

For under ten bucks, the Ravelli APLT2 tripod gives you about all you can reasonably expect for your money. Of course at this price, construction and materials are not the best, but the tripod is still fairly sturdy and functional, and tripod can probably handle the weight of most point and shoots without major issues. While it might be able to handle a DSLR with a lightweight lens, this tripod should not be the first choice of a photographer using a DSLR.

The aluminum legs have four sections, and can achieve a maximum height of 43 inches. The center column can also be raised, making the absolute maximum height about 49 inches. With the legs spread out, the tripod is fairly stable, but can still be somewhat prone to being tipped over, particularly if a heavy load is attached. The tripod's weight limit is not stated, but if you value your gear, you would be well advised not to take chances if a setup seems unstable.

The tripod is attached directed to the camera's tripod screw mount. There is no detachable base plate, or ball head. The camera can be setup in most positions, but it may take a little more work and time to get it set and locked into place. Changing positions isn't as quick and easy as a tripod with a ball head fitting. It will increase the cost, but convenience can be improved, if you add a ball head, or you can look at the more full-featured Ravelli APLT4 61" Light Weight Aluminum Tripod With Bag and Free Mini Wire Leg Tripod.

For a DSLR user, while not the first choice as your primary tripod, this compact rig could come in handy when you want to travel light, or just need a tripod for some limited simple setups.
