Great tripod!! Especially if just starting out!
on August 11, 2016
I loved this tripod. Before the tripod's screws lost their teeth this tripod was amazing. It was incredibly light, so I sometimes slung it around my shoulders and did not feel like I had it on me at all. The tripod can go a decent high amount, having three lock points on each leg and an adjustable neck. The level was handy when you needed to make the camera level, plus the ability to adjust the x,y,and z axis worked perfectly for my time lapses, group photos, etc. Not to mention the tripod was very stable, but not stable enough that it was easily moved. What I really loved is that I used this for my phone. I had a phone spring holder with the screw bottom and worked perfectly for vlogs + timelapes
What I didn't like about the tripod:
Actually, not much to say in this section. One thing was that the whole thing is made of lightweight plastic. This meant it was good if I wanted to carry the tripod around me, but not for sturdiness. The legs are easily bendable, so if you unlatch the leg locks and push down to compress all of the legs fast (This is the lazy way, which I did) then you had the possibility of actually bending the legs. This happened to me, and it was jammed until I rebent it to its original shape. Another thing was the triangle folding thing, the three plastic support in the middle that separates the legs, doesn't lock like some tripods. The only way is to lock it is extending the tripod legs fully out. Plus you can't add extra weight since there is no hook. Another thing is it can't hold a DSLR like the Nikon D5100 if you point the lense all the way up. In the regular level position, maybe. In my experience if you want to capture the sky above you to get star photos the tripod just tips over. Last thing was there's no way to screw the camera without turning it directly. You would have to take your camera and turn it on the screw mount. Some tripods have screws which you hold the camera and screw the screw to get perfect position
Besides the negative things this camera worked perfectly for me when starting to do photography, vlogging, and timelapses a lot. If you are looking for a cheap, starting out, long lasting tripod to use try out this one. But if you use a dslr then you might have some trouble with balance and stability.
