When I started shopping for a tripod, my main concern was to find something affordable that had enough height that I would rarely have to raise the center column (this seriously compromises stability) and would allow me to take vertical photos which my Velbon 607 Videmate does not (if you're shopping for a tripod for video, the 607 is an amazing tripod for the money). By the description and reviews, this tripod appeared to fit the bill.
When it arrived I was initially impressed by the apparent quality of the tripod. While the legs aren't heavy duty or more expensive material, the same money at Best Buy won't get you something as sturdy or tall, and the padding, carrying handle and functional dual bubble levels seemed like icing on the cake.
The main problem, however, lies in the quick release plate. For those who don't know, this is the component you attach to the bottom of your camera that allows it to latch onto the tripod. The issue is that it simply isn't very secure on the camera itself. I bought this tripod mainly so I can shoot vertical (portrait) photos, but if I put my old, 80-200 telephoto lens on this thing and turn it for a vertical shot, it simply spins and points downward. The camera and lens together weigh between 2-2.5 pounds.
I tried tightening the screw on the plate as tight as I could, but the small plastic knob is impossible to get a firm grip around. It does have a shallow notch with which you can use a nickel to tighten it further, but after two uses I can already see the plastic stripping away.Read more ›
1. All Flexi mini Tripods in this category are same except Brand name on Tripod. I purchased Zeikos and other 2 brands from Amazon.
I tried this tripod on Sony Cybershot DSC (Whose tripod holder is not at center place (Sony likes different)). but I did not face any issue with that.
This Tripod strong enough for a Canon SX10IS.(its similar to SLR without additional lenses. But You need to spread out the legs of Tripod.)
2. I bought this mini Flexi tripod and ended up making this my travel companion. Here are my reasons for liking it a lot:
- It's sturdier than I expected. The rubber feet prevent slipping and the flexible legs can easily hold a typical camera without bending under the weight.
- While it's light enough to carry around, you can keep in your pocket. Flexi Tripod size is less than 6".
- With the legs spread out at the bottom it makes a great grip for little cameras.
- Its perfect replacement for Mini Tripod also Mini Tripod are more bulkier, heavier.
- Flexi Tripod helps you a lot to take pictures on self timer with less space available for Tripod.
- You can spread out the legs also bend/twist the legs (not at great extend)to adjust the angle.
- Unlike straight-leg tripods, you can make the feet grip a vertical edge, like a cube partition.
- shooting at a low speed and risk of blurring the shot, You can use any object/ place for stability (6" X 6" place is more than enough)
- Very nice tripod for who thinks they are not professional photographers.
- One design drawback is the mounting screw is fixed. You don't get a little thumb knob to twist when mounting the camera, you have to rotate the whole tripod.Read more ›
I bought it because it is small enough to fit in my camera bag, and never again will I be wishing I had something besides a rock or a table or a tree branch to balance my camera on. Yes, it's only 4 inches tall, and that means you can't spread the legs far enough for some serious stability like you would be able to do with something with longer legs. But for my approx 1-2 lb digital camera, it is plenty stable, and you can bend the legs every-which way, meaning that you can put them where they need to be to hold your camera securely, as well as angle the lens slightly up or down, or adjust for unevenness of whatever surface you are setting the tripod on. You can easily spread the legs as far as 6" apart, so you can get the feet comfortably outside of your camera's center of gravity. The legs are stiff enough to stay where you put them, although you have to initially bend them past the point you want, as they will spring back a little bit. The little rubber feet have good traction.
So while the downside is that it is not a larger tripod, the upside is that it is not a larger tripod. It fits in my camera bag and will hold my camera much more steady and securely than balancing it on some fencepost, the roof of a car, or whatever I've resorted to before. And did I mention that it's PRACTICALLY FREE?!?Read more ›

This tripod has worked okay for me the past few years of heavy use. It's not the best tripod out there, and I think you can probably do better for the price, but it's generally... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Jess Mann
