Top Customer Reviews
For the price, it is truly a great deal. I humbly think every serious photographer, amerature or pro, should have one.
One addition that I consider invaluable (but is unfortunately very difficult to find) is the quick release head for the Ultra Pod II, for which Pedco itself (via Amazon) appears to be the only source. The quick release for the smaller Ultra Pod I is available from many places but won't fit this tripod. Nobody should have to struggle with screwing a tripod into a camera when a good picture is waiting. Especially since if you need a tripod, it's likely dark so it's hard to see, and you don't want to risk messing up the plastic threads in a camera's tripod mount. Strip those and the camera can never be attached to a tripod again. That quick release head is more secure than the ones on the Joby Gorillapods, which can sag when used to hold a heavier camera vertically. It even has a pan feature, which is used by leaving the locking knob untightened. The locking knob is much easier to use than Joby's sleeker but stiff locking mechanism.
Note that this is actually the Ultra Pod II, the biggest of the three Ultra Pod models, after the original (now called Ultra Pod I) and the Ultra Pod Mini. As such, it's the sturdiest and most stable of the three models. The Ultrapod Digital is nothing more than this model molded in translucent plastics following the original iMac design fad and with Velcro Onewrap rather than a Velcro cinch strap. I prefer the black Ultrapod II, which is more scratch-resistant and I'm guessing less susceptible to damage from ultraviolet rays in sunlight (assuming you're outside a lot).
I shoot heavy DSLRs, and I've used it countless times in a pinch or even as a preferred method with tree branches, signposts, fences and so on, and it's performed flawlessly for me every time.
In all that time I've owned and used it, this thing has proven to be TOUGH, solid and worth every penny! It still performs like the day I bought it.
And to answer the guy who gave it one star, no, I don't work for the company, and have no dog at all in the fight - I'm just telling my experience with it - TEN FULL YEARS of heavy-use experience with it.
It's one of the most dependable things in my photography kit, and if it ever DOES break down, I will immediately buy another to replace it.
Pic. is with a 50mm and the other is with the (heavy) 105mm. Little thing handles its business.
The Ultrapod comes with a Velcro strap that I remove almost immediately, for me it just gets in the way. If I ever need to strap the UltraPod to something I can use my belt or some paracord that I usually carry with me. If your on the go and need a simple yet sturdy, small and lightweight tripod then I would definitely recommend that you purchase as many UltraPods as you can.
I attached some photos to show the size of the lens, set the camera at a weird and "vulnerable" angle, and you can see it's sturdy and stays in the same spot you angle it.
