I take this tripod with me where ever I go to take photos. It's very sturdy and does not feel cheap at all, unlike some other ones sold here on Amazon. Even has a leveler and handle build in. Can't ask for anything more. It also comes with a handy carrying case. I highly recommend this tripod!

--UPDATE 02/16/14-----

It's still going strong and I use it occasionally. No issues whatsoever. I put my Nikon D3200 on it and it works great.

This is a very lightweight tripod. I have a Canon T31 DSLR and with the 55 - 250 zoom lens the camera tends to pull slightly forward on the tripod. Nonetheless, for the money and for occasional use in situations requiring a tripod, this is not a bad deal. I would not take it out into the wilds and expect it to hold up for long. It is easy to set up and re-fold and most importantly, it is very portable. When in its supplied bag, it easily attaches to the bottom of my camera bag with straps and is always available. If you are looking for an easily carried tripod for only occasional use, this might be useful for you as it is for me. If you are looking for something that will hold the camera, a big lens and a dedicated flash, this is probably too light.

I read several reviews that brought up the "flimsy" construction. I believe they were missing the point. This is not meant to hold up a 50 lb camera in gale force wind. It will; however, work great for holding up a typical family camera while being light enough to carry around.

Lets start off by being very Clear!!! This is is A $12 dollar Tripod ok !!?? its not a Pro set up, it's not a $100 Dollar set up . It only cost $12 bucks and for that price Its Frakkin awesome !!!!!! its fully adjustable all three legs have 3 sets of clamps for multiple heights there is a built in liguid level to let you know if the the tripod is not level . Its just sexy I could'nt be more pleased .
This is the kind of tripod you need if you make youtube videos or how to videos or if you take pics of hobbies . its aluminum and plastic so while its great for STABLE STATIONARY USE IT'S NOT FOR RUGGED OUTDOOR USE !!!! I get tired of reviews where people give negative comments because they tried to use the product beyond its limitations .
I bought this to use for tutorial videos that I do on youtube and its perfect .
Thank you that will be all!!!

For $20 it's hard to go wrong.

This tripod quickly and easily scales from 2 feet to a height that is comfortable for a 6 foot tall person to use at eye level. It's very light, and the handle makes it easy to move around. There's a little shake to it but nothing that will prevent getting a good shot. It comes with a mini tripod that can attach to point and shoot cameras. The fabric carrying case is a nice addition. The rubber feet provide good traction on all indoor surfaces, though I'm not sure how they would fare on grass or rocks.

The one weakness is that with a 300mm zoom lens on a D7000 the tripod has a hard time staying in place if you are taking shots angled downwards (i.e. shooting an object at a 45 degree angle from above). It's not a deal breaker since you can stabilize it by placing your hand on the handle, but the knob that controls the vertical angle does not hold beyond a certain point.

Good value for $20.

EDIT: upgraded to 5 stars since I figured out how to lock the vertical angle. The handle that moves the the swivel head can be rotated and this solves the problem.

Those were the first words out of my junior photographer son's mouth..."now THAT'S sexy". Do not be fooled by the cost of this tripod, it is a GIANT leap up from the Samsonite light weight tripod I was using. I LOVE the crank handle for the extra height and, as a rather tall gal, it's nice not to have to "hunch" over the tripod and camera to take a shot when tripod is extended to full height. Having an option to add weight is great, but it's pretty solid without it, even when my camera has a speedlite mounted and is set up to take images in the portrait mode. I love the built in handle directly on the tripod itself, but find the strap on the carrying case to be a little shorter than I'd like. It'd be great if I could carry this cross-body in the bag. The quick release plate is a fantastic improvement over my last tripod and I would absolutely buy this item again. We've already beaten this tripod up pretty good having used it in a variety of scenarios and no scratches or dings that I can see. Tomorrow (well later today actually), it will accompany me to an all day outdoor Christian Music Festival and I look forward to having it on deck to help me take night shots of my favorite performer.

Purchased two of these Ravelli APLT4 tripods that are to be used for a mobile quick interior set-up of two off camera Nikon SB-910 flash units and umbrellas. These Ravelli APLT4 tripods are perfect for my lightweight, easy to carry for my quick semi-studio lighting set-up. These Ravelli tripods are made of black anaodized aluminum with plastic snap fittings to extend and hold the legs, a plastic crank handle to elevate the center column and a plastic swivel pan head with a Ravelli quick tripod plastic disconnect plate for a camera or flash. There is nothing to assemble and nothing came loose, this tripod is ready to use upon taking it out of it's good nylon bag. I also purchased the heavier Ravelli APGL3 tripod for my camera. There is nothing cheap or flimsey either on these Ravelli model APLT4, but a great quality tripod for the average rigors of amateur's and some pro photographers. In truth, while these tripods might not stand the extreme torture test of some heavy pounding with sledge hammers nor vice grips and the like, but for me, these Ravelli APLT4 and APGL3 tripods will shure to outlast me and fit my needs PERFECTLY! Couldn't be happier with these genuine products. Thank You AMAZON for such great deals with free Super Savings Shipping thru UPS! THANK YOU for reading my recommendations.
