I have been searching for a good sturdy tripod for outdoor use. As I
came across this product, I was a bit skeptical because of it's amazingly
low price for what the description said it had to offer. Don't let the
price and looks fool you, this product is amazing!
It's about $39.99(USD) or $43.15(Australia Dollars).
-Good sturdy feel
-Very expandable and versatile
-Comes with neoprene hand grips on the legs(not pictured)
-Clip locks for the leg sections makes me feel more comfortable when
locking them over twist locks(but that's based on my preferences).
-Very portable! I'm so surprised at how light this tripod is, but even
with all of the sections extended out, it doesn't move much or feel like
it'll tip over or any of that matter.
-Very light and strong! It weighs as much as my old tripod but can
support double the weight of my old tripod at 6.6 pounds(or 3kg)!
-Looks amazing! Has an expensive professional look to it without the
expensive professional price!
-Center column is long but can covert into a short column.
-Good height! Minimum height is about 14inches(355.6 millimeters) with legs pulled out all the way and about 60inches(1.5meters) with legs in normal stance with center column extended and legs extended.
-Not really a con, but the base on the head pictured on the website is
different from the one I received, mine is a small disc about the size
of a poker chip with and is rubberized. The one pictured looks to be a
lot bigger and looks to be made of the cork-type material rather than
-The feet on the tripod cannot pivot, they are just rubber cups place
on the ends of the legs to prevent from slipping.
-My tripod came with a few scratches that are noticeable but won't
affect the tripod's performance.
-When using the tripod with all the sections extended out, the legs
tend to bend and wobble just a tiny bit, but not enough to be that
-No removable clip! Not really a con, but sure is an annoyance if you're having to constantly switch between cameras!
-The rubber portions on the base of my head are starting to flake off a bit.
-The box my tripod was sent in was the wrong box but from the same brand. The box top read 4-Section All-way pan-head tripod when mine was a 3-Section ballhead tripod.
-NO documentation included with the tripod whatsoever! All that was in the box was the tripod inside the included carrying case which was placed in a plastic bag.
-The box doesn't display any information about the company who sells it, it only has the company name on all four sides, and a box top including the product number and product name.
This tripod isn't designed for higher end DSLRs for it is a compact tripod designed mainly for the use of entry-level, lightweight DSLRs or P&S Cameras.

I'm not really sure if the Company has a website, because I haven't come up with any yet.[/url]
