This model is actually tons sturdier than the smaller model the other reviewer mentioned. The 55" is very small, thin, and flimsy while the 66" model has thick legs, an oversized head, oversized knobs, swivel feet. Great item for the price (i paid $40) i think...

This is an excellent tripod for the money!

QUALITY

The tripod is well-built and should have no problem standing up to ordinary wear-and-tear. The aluminum frame is pretty solid. Although the various adjustment knobs and height-crank are made of plastic, they are durable and should last quite a while so long as they aren't abused.

USABILITY

Unlike my older tripod, the TGT-58TR has a handle mounted to the center beam. This is an excellent feature, especially for shooting in colder climates during winter. Aluminum bars can be very cold on the hands in such conditions, so having a durable plastic carrying handle is a welcome relief.

Expensive tripods usually advertise the ease of making height, rotation, and angle adjustments. Although this tripod is undoubtedly a budget model compared to high-end pieces of equipment, the controls work rather well. It has no problem supporting the weight of my Nikon D5000.

OVERALL

The Targus TGT-58TR is a budget tripod, so you shouldn't expect miracles from it. Considering its modest cost, however, it performs commendably and should last a while if it isn't excessively abused. I'm definitely happy with this piece of equipment.

UPDATE!!!

In September 2010, this tripod finally broke. In all, it lasted for about 3/4 of the year in 2010 and faithfully held my camera for roughly 200 miles of hiking all over Connecticut (as well as in Alabama, Vermont, and Maine). It got more than its fair share of abuse over the course of my travels, and considering its low price, this tripod definitely served me well.

I'm writing this update in February 2011 and I've long-since replaced this tripod with a more expensive Manfrotto unit that allows for use of a ball-head...

I've never owned a tripod before, so I was pleased to find that this tripod is very easy to use. Packed & folded, it's about two feet long. Once you've extended the legs, and raised the platform, you're at about five feet, and rock solid. Pull back a release lever, and the video/photo platform detaches from the tripod (making it MUCH easier to attach the camera). And you can thread the platform screw into the camera from underneath (with an easy to grip handle attached to the screw), so you don't need to "spin" the camera onto the platform (I admit, I did this the first time before I noticed the handle underneath). Snap the camera/platform back onto the tripod (securing it again with the release lever), and your camera is practically at eye level (I'm about 5'8"). A nice large handle extends horizontally, making any up-down or left-right adjustments very easy.

Besides that, there are two bubble level indicators (so no more crooked photos, I guess). There are flexible rubber "feet" at the end of each leg, so you'd be nice and stable on, say, a smooth floor (the camera won't slide away from you - and the legs won't scratch the floor). Well, I'm good to go, but there are a couple of other handles, levers & knobs on there - let me check the booklet...

Well, the big handle right under the top of the legs is for lifting and moving the whole tripod (duh!). And here's a good one: the little knob on the side of the platform loosens a hinge, so you can tilt the whole camera up to 90 degrees sideways (perfect for those tall family members, or to get the whole waterfall into the picture). While we're on the topic of freedom of movement: you can aim the camera straight up to the sky - and then some; and you can aim it directly down to the ground - and then some.

A great product.

I just got back from the neighborhood Ross Dress For Less, where I just pick this up for $8.99. I had been wanting a tripod since I replaced by first digital camera with the Canon A590.

My former roommate had a tripod lying around and so it wasn't urgent that I get one immediately, but since I recently moved the time had definitely come. If I'm not mistaken, he also had a Targus tripod--the model # escapes me. I skimmed through Amazon some months back pricing models, but uncertain about how much to spend versus what could I get by with. I decided in the end to table the matter.

About this Targus tripod... it's a good deal, if you can get it for $10. Why? It has two extensions beyond its standard height and I would only cautiously recommend extending this only once, but not fully extended. This model is designed to extend up to 4'. Once you take it out of the box--nicely packaged, btw-- you discover that the tripod "feet" have three (3) "secure" locks which keeps the two remaining extensions firmly in place. The problem is, if you attempt to use the lower legs (forgive that description) it is very, very flimsy. It looks like that fold-out toy you got when you were a kid and if you played too hard with it the legs would bend and you could never get it back to its original position. It's that flimsy.

Targus is attempting to tell you that you can use a number of cameras (SLR, Digital, pocket) as well as a camcorder. Don't believe them.

If you've got a shoot and you need a tripod for a camcorder or you've got a digital or an SLR with those heavy lens'-- the weight of that outfit will definitely not hold up if you're thinking about putting this extendable tripod.
