    The smallest 6" I've ever seen

    You don't realise how small it is until you see it. It works for my use case but I don't like how flimsy it feels. The top 3 joints are not stiff like all the other following joints, meaning it acts as a normal tripod hinge/joint at the very top and only all the other following joint/hinges have that stiff feel that allows you to twist and keep legs at weird angles. I may have gone with a gorilla brand or something of higher quality if i could find it in the same price range (impossible). But for me it gets the job done.

    If you have an action camera like a GoPro or a SJcam, this is the first item you should buy for it I use it as a handle tripod and it wraps around anything, I even used it for a dive video and was surprised to find out that it helped float my camera to the surface. With the legs together it works great as a handle I can walk around and point it anywhere with ease If you are shooting a video with your camera stationary the 3 bendable legs make it easy to set up your camera level on just about any surface . For the more difficult places simply wrap the legs around a pole.

    Nice, lightweight mini tripod

    I went to the store to buy a different Insignia tripod but saw that the feet on the other one were unstable, so I bought this one instead. At first I didn't think I'd like the flexible legs, as I thought they might be difficult to quickly move back to the middle for putting back into my bag, but the legs are actually very easy to move. I thought the flexibility might make them difficult to keep straight for simple use on a table, but nope, they aren't flexible enough to be difficult. Fits the standard sized holes at the bottoms of standard cameras and camcorders.

    It's poorly made

    This is a cheap little tripod that I purchased to be used with a GoPro camera, and out of the box the leg system started to fall apart. This tripod is hold together by a little plate with a screw that had to be tightened a few times before being able to be used for it's purpose. My suggestion is to get another brand that might have a better built quality. This can work for some people, maybe if you don't keep re-adjusting the legs it can work for you, but if you're like me and would like to keep framing a tripod frequently, stay away.

    This was a great tripod to have but I was needing it for table recording while vlogging. It's awesome if you want to hold and walk with it or just to sit somewhere while taking photos. I will keep it and use as necessary. But did not work for what I wanted it for. I will say my camera is very secure on it and the legs are bendy which is great!

    I bought this to use with my iPhone plus (I already had a phone holder that I could attach to the tripod). The only problem I had (not the item) was that my phone case is bulky and heavy and sometimes the tripod was not strong enough to carry it. But when I took off my case (which is a hassle, at times), the sturdiness wasn't an issue. Just keep in mind that this product is good for lighter cameras and phones.

    This tripod is tiny, but it may come in handy depending on what you're planning to do. It can grab on toe poles or thin branches and can hold your camera on uneven surfaces. Hard to beat for the price. I've taken it kayaking with a waterproof camera and attached it to one of my oars. It does okay.

    Great tripod for pocket cameras

    Got this tripod for my Sony DSC-W800 pocket camera. Its very stable and the flexible legs allow for anchoring and leveling on uneven surfaces. The leg(s) can also be anchored to small diameter poles, fences, etc. This tripod is great for small cameras. I would not recommend for heavier cameras such as an SLR but would work great with compact video recorders as well. I am happy with the product

    I got this small tripod for my son to use with his go pro on his desk top. More or less as a starter one . Legs seemed fun and kid friendly . Until they broke . You cannot bend them too many times. Maybe a couple of times . Dollar store quality in my book. It wasn't expensive at Best Buy ... so it wasn't a huge deal when it failed . Overall unless u don't plan on bending the legs , I wouldn't purchase this product .

    I ordered this with my camera package and it has really been great. The unfortunate thing is that after about two weeks one leg broke, but I was able to pop it back in. It is a little flimsy but I still use it. I would recommend it for a beginner.

    My reviews are purely based on my experiences. This tripod is horrible for portable projectors. I bought it to support my Qumi Q6. Part of the problem is the projector and where you connect the tripod (off center). I could see how this would work well for a GoPro or similar. For me it does not. The ball and socket configuration keeps popping out so I have to get another tripod.

    Inexpensive and works in a pinch

    I needed a quick and inexpensive tripod when I forgot mine. It is okay. It does pop out of the socket when rotating the camera, as other reviewers mentioned. Although small, my point and shoot camera is a bit heavier, so maybe that is the issue. The legs were nicely adjustable. I'm on the fence about whether or not I'd recommend. I'd say give it a try if you have an super light weight camera.

    Small, light and compact

    Pros: Small, very light, compact and very portable. Cons: Ball joint is flimsy. If you screw too tight, it will pop itself out of the ball joint. The legs are a little stiff when bending/wrapping around bars, branches, etc.. For my use: Mostly motorcycle touring, It's easy to carry. The cost, light weight and portability out way the cons.

    My son bought this with his Christmas money so he can take stationary pictures with his new digital camera. He is very satisfied with his purchase and uses it all the time. The portability makes it possible to take it where ever he goes without feeling like he's dragging bulky equipment.

    I used this a few times for macro videos, and I knew i wasn't going to use it extensively so I wanted something cheap. The flexible legs are wobbly and seem to transfer even small vibrations, however, you can use a remote shutter control or to set the camera on a delay to avoid vibration in your pictures/videos.

    I purchased for a small waterproof & shockproof camera/video camera I purchased for a trip to Italy & Switzerland I found that it would not support the camera & the legs were/are too short to wrap around railings, banisters, chair backs, etc to support it in order to set up running video of a class or event Waste of money

    Good for holding small photo gear

    For heavy gear you want something much more substantial. My intended use was mounting a remote speedlight flash unit in odd places where it can be unobtrusive or where using a full sized light stand would untenable. For this it works fine. It is not meant for use with large and heavy cameras or photo gear.

    Got this as a present for a micro HD video camera. It worked well, was small, and easy to stow when not in use. It gig not feel very solid, and aside from use with a go pro, or similar small, light camera, it would not be a great fit.

    This tripod is sturdy enough for a smartphone camera and its mount, light and compact enough to take with you. Has a solid feel and the feet do not slide on flat, smooth surfaces. Legs can be positioned to provide useful angles as situations for photos and video require.

    It’s very small and compact. I love its utility. I used it to watch videos on the desktop and take photos on the trip, it works well. I also used it to hold a digital sound recorder to record conversation and fun times that I spent with my family on the table. A very multifunctional tripod.
