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.

As you can see I have no arms so I need a tripod that is lightweight but full on perks...this tripod is EVERYTHING I hoped for & then some!!!!
It is VERY easy to operate from manipulating the height to changing the swivel points for various angles. The knobs are nice & big making screwing/unscrewing very easy & effortless.
I got this for my Makayama iPad case & it works seamlessly with it.
Great product! Great pricing!! Thanks Amazon!!!!
Since receiving this tripod, I did a "test" where I installed my camera and left it alone for almost five days with the legs fully extended and positioning locations locked / secured. This tripod held its position without any trouble, easing my concerns about it falling over and damaging my camera.
One issue I found is related to my specific camera (See Image). When attached to the tripod, I am unable to flip the screen around due to the locking arm being in the way. This is not a major issue since you only need to release the camera, flip the screen as desired, and re-secure.
Overall, I'm completely satisfied with my purchase and would strongly recommend it to anyone. Take a look at my added images where I give a closer look of its features and capabilities.
I wanted to like this small, portable tripod, however; the 3-way head attachment broke after one use. There are 4 plastic "fingers" that create the hinge on the 3-way head and allow it to pivot and also via the handle, lock the head into position.
I attempted to lock the tripod head into position, but it kept slowly dipping in the direction of the hinge and gravity. So I took the 3-way head assembly apart and found the hinge elements to be broken (see red circle in the photo accompanying this review). As you can see, all four of these fingers are broken (they should be rings, not semi-circles), rendering the tripod unusable after less than one use.
All other features of the tripod seem to be in working order.
It is very lightweight, so it will have balance issues if not weighted properly along the bottom horizontal legs when fully extended or at an angle.
The carrying case is a nice touch - but offers no padding or protection during transport.
I was surprised to learn how affordable such a useful accessory can be so before spent my 27 bucks I watched some utoob videos on how to select and use a tripod (I think I might need a monopod too!). And, of course I read the Amazon user reviews. Only SEVEN one-star reviews, as I write this, against 246 5-star reviews. The few bad reviews seemed to concern the tripod being shaky when the center tube extension was cranked up and/or the total lack of instructions.I think the two issues are related and Amazon could eliminate 5 of the 7 bad reviews by including instructions. The center tube IS shaky, even when it's all the way down, until you tighten the collar.
I had never touched a tripod before this one. It's not hard to figure out but don't clip your new camera into the quick release mount until you are sure you know how to remove and replace the mounting plate and FULLY lock the cam lever. That may be why one of the 7 reviewers that gave one star was unhappy. I have uploaded some photos to the gallery that might help locate all the locks and to tell when the quick release is seated.
Since I'm not going to be recording combat or Kardashians this Amazon Basic unit will do just fine. It's light,well made, sets up or takes down easily, and, when all the locks are tightened, very steady.
The professionals recommend hanging some weight from the center hook because it keeps the wind from wiggling everything and makes the whole assemble more resistant being knocked over by fishing buddies, especially on uneven ground. The professionals recommend using your camera bag but I plan on trying a bucket of ice and a six-pack.
With the center tube cranked all the way up the lens of my camera is 63 1/2 inches high. The quick release feature will be handy for swapping to a small telescope. It's not really quick at all if you don't have a second mounting plate and need to unscrew the plate from the camera and screw it onto the scope. The Velbon QB-4W Quick Release Platform fits the base and is nearly identical to the original plate.
I bought this tripod for my second digital camera, which is about half the size of my first one. I know there are brackets available that let you use the camera in your cell phone or tablet. You can mount spotter scopes or binoculars too. Who knows what cameras will look like 5 years from now, but I bet they will have a screw mount in the bottom and a tripod will still be a good idea.
