Obviously, if you're a professional, you'll want a real, taller tripod, but for the hobbyist who wants a leg up from basic hand-held photography/videography, this tripod does the trick. That said, it's far more useful for people who have to pack small and light, as it takes up an insignificant amount of space. Its value to size ratio is therefore enormous.
I also own a much-more-hyped GorillaPod, which claims to be able to hang upside down on branches or grasp chain link fence. This sounds great in theory, and is fun to try tying to your chair at home, but in reality, I have never needed to use a tripod in that way and can't see when I'd ever have to tie my camera sideways to a tree, nor how that would make for a better photo than something I could take by hand with a fast shutter speed. The size difference is also astronomical. GorillaPod is bulky - much thicker and longer than the Flip Tripod, and cannot fit comfortably in my hand.
GorillaPod is marketed well, but is not nearly as useful. The Flip Tripod is a must for backpackers and hikers who are in need of a tripod.
7 Reasons why I like this product:
#7 It's so small, you can easily tote it around with you
#6 It's easy to place it atop another horizontal surface -- chair, desk, counter -- to get the right height
#5 I didn't buy the wrong color tri-pod
#4 Kids can easily use it, but they can't easily break it because the legs are flexible
#3 It does what it's designed to do, that is, it keeps your Flip camera steady!
#2 It's inexpensive!!
... and Reason Number One...
#1 Kids create watchable videos for their parents instead of all those nauseating, jerky videos!
The Flip tripod is meant to be used as a quick setup table top stand. It screws into the base of the camera easily, and excessive snugging isn't necessary. The legs have rubber feet that keep the tripod in place, and the legs themselves feel sturdy enough to survive repeated use. There really aren't any glaring cons when it comes to this product, but I'm not in love with it hence the four star score.
It's just a shame that Flip cams aren't in production anymore. I still love the camera I bought two years ago.
--When you need to film something, but taller people in front of you block your view, you can screw this little tripod into the camera body (it's a sturdy, solid fit, too), squeeze the three separate legs together into a solid "handle" of sorts, and hold it up, Statue of Liberty style, for an unimpeded "over the heads of the crowd" view.
--Using the tripod as a handle, you can hold the camera much steadier than simply holding the bulky little rectangle in your hand--this is important, since many users crab about the camera not having that "steady-cam" feature.
--Using the camera as a tripod, you can "get in the picture" yourself, and you can also aim the camera in pretty much any direction--to include a slight upward or downward perspective.
--The three little feet of this gem are both sturdy and flexible, and can be bent in all directions, which makes it easy to solidly place the camera on an uneven surface, too.
--If personalizing this product is important to you (and it might be, if you live in close quarters, all your buddies have one of these as well, and you don't want any discussions about whose tripod is whose), the camera comes with an assortment of "feet" caps in assorted colors--you can make all three feet different colors, if you'd like.
Bottom line--if you own a Flip camera, you really do want one of these things. You may not know it yet, but once you have the thing, you'll use it a lot, and just maybe never take it off the camera, except to charge it/download images!
Those Flip folks aren't foolish--this accessory would have been a wonderful thing to include WITH the camera, but even though it isn't, it's worth getting. Treat yourself--you deserve it. Buy with confidence!
