I personally do not know why more people are not buying this particular tripod on Amazon. I know Amazon has dozens of tripods to pick from, because I spent a couple of hours looking at a number of them and reading the reviews before I decided to purchase this one. I was a little nervous about the fact that there were only two reviews, but they were both five star reviews and I also opted to trust the Polaroid name. I take videos and photographs for family purposes, so I am not a professional. I will not be using this tripod all of the time, but I wanted one available to me for those situations when it might come in handy. I was shopping for the best quality tripod for the lowest price.... preferrably under $50.00.

This tripod is everything I had hoped for, considering what I paid for it. It seems to be well constructed, and has all of the adjustment capabilities that I would ever need for my purpose. It has a heavy duty appearance, and there is nothing cheap looking about it visually. The legs, central shaft, and leg braces are black painted aluminum. Everything else looks like it is made from a very hard and durable black plastic. The carrying case is very well made. I had no trouble setting it up right out of the box (there are no directions). After checking all of the moving parts out, I found everything to be in working order. The only "potential" weakness this tripod might have is the plastic cranking mechanism for the center shaft. But, I would be willing to bet that all tripods in the under $100 price range have the same design; including some of the very expensive tripods. No matter what the price, everything made today has moving parts made out of plastic somewhere on it.

In conclusion: For the price, this looks like a quality made tripod (it actually exceeded my expectations) that will last me for a long time.

First of all, I'm not a professional photographer, so this review is from a beginner's perspective.

I have a GoPro hero 4 silver and Samsung NX 30, JVC Everio.
I took all of my review pictures with my NX, so no pictures of it.

Pros:
-Two quick release plate which is vital to people who has more than 2 cameras.
-Very sturdy (also works well w/ DSLRs.
-Bubble level indicator is very accurate
-Lock for the legs
-Enough height for almost every use
-Ships w/ prime (fast shipping)
-Bag included
-A handle for people who uses without bags
-Two height controls (one from each legs, and one right under the camera)
-Good for time lapse/slow motion

Cons:
-As far as I know, no way to turn the camera easily (you have to move the whole tripod)
-Therefore, not good for hyperlapse
-No manual for all the functions
-A little heavy for its size

Thanks for reading. If you have any questions, please comment.

Only used it once then broke, almost dropped my palm size projector, lucky that I was able to catch it. Bad quality, not reliable.

This tripod is great! It's in a very reasonable price range and well worth every cent. Strong, durable and very sturdy. No shaking. I expect it to last me a long time before I spend money on a more expensive tripod.
I currently use it for a Canon Rebel. No assembly needed. I am over 6ft tall and it stands taller than me when fully extended. It's a great buy. No disappoitments here.

This is a fantastic little tripod. It does the job and keeps your camera sturdy to the ground. The build is really solid and feels right when you use it. It's heavy but not too heavy. Comes with a nice little bag to carry it around in and looks cool. It's easy to use and I got a lot of great use out of it. HOWEVER,

I work at a Christian summer camp where I use tripods and cameras for about 14 hours a day for 7 days a week. This particular tripod's handle bar for carrying broke a little after 2 weeks of me having it. I'm not saying the handle bar was great. The handle bar consisted of 3 parts. 2 rings that circled around the middle bar and a plastic part that connected the pieces forming a handle bar. This handle bar was a pain in the rear. It pinched your hand 75% of the time you used it. I was happy when it broke because my hand finally got some relief. My previous tripod didn't have a handle bar so its not that big of a deal for me to not have one. Using the foam covering the 3 legs to carry it around is easier than using the handle bar.

One small reminder to anyone that purchases this tripod, there is a lock wheel that keeps your camera from panning. The wheel when loose can fall off very easily so make sure that its on tight whenever you're not panning. If it falls off and you lose it you're in for a lot of trouble.

UPDATE: 7/29/2012:

The inside parts of this tripod are junk. The entire top part consisting of the tilt-bar and mount head broke off and are not fixable. Once you use this tripod for an extended period of time and are using it day in and day out the components get worn out super fast. It was great while it lasted. Polaroid isn't sending me a new one.

I bought the Celestron SkyMaster Giant 15x70 Binoculars with Tripod Adapter. These binoculars are heavy and large and require a tripod for practical use. My regular tripod was not tall enough to allow me to use the binoculars without bending over some, which would be difficult for my back to handle. But this one is 6 feet tall, which is really nice.
I worried that this tripod would not be heavy duty enough to hold the binoculars, as they weigh about 3 pounds, but it's really perfect. This tripod has a nice carry handle permanently attached to it, and all of the parts seem well made. It also comes in a nice carrying case,and has the quick mount attachment. I'm glad I chose a brand name like Polaroid.
