The adjustable-height tripod makes it easy to achieve reliable stability and score just the right angle when going after that award-winning shot.

The tripod's three-way head allows for ultimate versatility. Easily change the orientation of the camera from portrait to landscape--and almost any angle in between with the handy tilt motion. Turn the knobs to secure. The tripod also allows for full panoramic possibilities with its 360-degree swivel function.
The tripod's quick-release mounting plate makes it easy to remove your camera from the tripod, helping to ensure fast transitions between shots and for quickly moving from location to location.
3-Section, Lever-Lock Legs
Uneven terrain? Need to frame the shot just so? The tripod effortlessly accommodates custom set-ups thanks to its lever-lock legs, each with three extendable sections. The leg height can be individually adjusted as needed or all three legs can be raised to the full height of 50 inches. Levers securely lock the legs into place and release smoothly for easy gliding to the desired height. For added convenience, an extendable gearless center post promotes easy movement and adjustment, and rubber feet help ensure stability on different surfaces.
Lightweight and Easy to Store
Made of strong yet lightweight aluminum, the tripod transitions effortlessly from one spot to another and transports easily. The tripod offers a collapsible design where the handle rotates down, the legs contract, and everything folds in, creating a short, compact size. The tripod fits neatly into the provided zippered bag for easy portability and safe storage.

The body of the unit is about 12 inches, + the camera, with everything slid in. With the legs folded that fits in the storage bag or with the legs out you can sit it on a table. With the legs and neck slid out then it stands above table height and you can fine tune for getting table shots with the tripod/camera next to the table. You can do a combination of legs on the ground and legs on a table to get the camera angle you want.
The camera screws on to the head (seems like most Japanese brands use the same thread/size), via a removable plate. You have adjustments in 3 dimensions and there is a spirit level in the head under the camera.

It's OK. That about the best I can say for this little tripod. It has features that mostly stand out as detriments. First, the strap is adjustable, but it allows for so little adjustment, it might as well have just been fixed in length. Second, it has a quick release plate, but the plate is not easy to attach to the camera, and the plate is wobbly when attached to the tripod. The overall effect is to make the attachment wobbly, and inconvenient to use. It would have been better to just have had a normal post to attach to the tripod with.
The tripod is very light, but also short. That could be an advantage in a few situations, but mostly, it is just short. I took it out for an early morning shoot Saturday. The wobbliness was even more noticeable with a camera and telephoto lens. For the price, I expect I will keep it around, but it will almost certainly be relegated to either holding a light camcorder, or a speed light.
I will be taking it with me on my upcoming tour of New Mexico, and I will update this review if anything more comes up.
I'm back from my trip through New Mexico. The tripod proved to be far less useful than expected. The "quick release plate" was probably the worst feature of the tripod. As noted previously, it is very wobbly. What's worse, it is quick release, if you don't want to change anything. The attachment is very small, the metal flap for screwing the bolt into the camera or other device is tiny. Overall, the tripod is barely worth having.
Having had it for more than two weeks now, I've yet to really find a good use for it. For the most part, this tripod is now used for holding a generic flash clamp. It is also reasonably useful for holding a very small camcorder. Nothing heavy.
Recap: this tripod is very light, but not practical, because of the wobbly "quick disconnect" plate. Amazon could've made a serviceable tripod if they had not tried to add so many features on to the tripod.
Amazon, I suggest you ditch the "quick disconnect" plate, and replace it with a traditional thumbscrew. Form over function has no place in photography equipment.
For myself, it's exactly what I needed. It will stay in a couple of rooms and really I have no need for a very expensive tripod. I personally am grateful for such an inexpensive option.
This rating is based off product cost and functionality. I wouldn't recommend for someone looking for a tripod used regularly being set up and broken down frequently, I can't imagine it lasting a very long time in that case.
For those like myself, doing some recording and photo taking in a general area, this does the trick and a very minimal cost.
I hope this helps, cheers!
