Deluxe lightweight tripod from AmazonBasics.
Top customer reviews
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.
The price is so cheap for a tripod in general. The build quality is great. It's sturdy. Even in the Iceland wind the tripod was able to stand its ground.
I use it to mount a Sony A7II with the FE 24-70 f4 and sometimes the 28mm f2 and it handles it quite well.
It has a handle to carry it easily. A bag to protect it during travel. A hook to hang a weight on for those really intense shooting conditions. The plate that screws into your phone is very sturdy and easy to secure with a twist and also easy to pop in and out of the holder so you don't need to keep doing it when you move from one location to another - you just simply pop the camera out and then snap it in once you arrive at the next location.
It's not tough construction (like the old tripod) but is easy to use, and should last until it's clear whether grandson will have long term interest that will justify a higher quality (more expensive) tripod. I did buy the "insurance" that was offered at time of purchase, which I seldom do. In this case, I think that might be a good decision.
I also bought two extra QD-4W plates. I'm not sure they are the correct fit -- don't feel right. Sure would be helpful if Amazon would share how to select the exact right plate.
My impression is that it is a great tripod for daily use. It can hadle some smaller lightweight cameras and lenses. However, its not an ideal tripod for a heavy camera like D810. But its good to have it as an alternative. I wont use it as my primary tripod. Having said that, it boasts of some very good features:
1. The 60-inch tripod can hold up to 6.6 lbs (which is not much but fine for smaller light weight lenses) comes with a bag.
2. Extends up to 48 inches (minimum height is 24 inches)
3. Supports a three way pan head with bubble level
4. Quick release mounting plate makes in easy to release the camera, if needed.
5. The legs have quick release locks for easy setup
