    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Not what I was expecting but not a bad little tripod for smaller cameras. Would be great for travel and small cameras, but had to return it because my camera was a little to heavy for the size. Just make sure to size it up correctly given the camera you're using.

    This is made cheaply. You get what you pay for. But hey it does what I want it to do. Can't use a heavy camera. Use common sense and it will do the job just find. Wrap it on tree limbs, set it on uneven surfaces. Options are unlimited.

    I was looking for a cheap portable tripod for my FPV 4" monitor that I could use on a table top. The tripod was ok for my purpose but if I were going to use this for a camera I might get something that was a bit more sturdy.

    This little tripod makes it easy to take group pics/videos. Hand it from tree branches, sets well on uneven surfaces, what more can you ask for. Yes it is made of cheap plastic, but treat it well and it will serve you well.

    This tripod does what I need it to do. I use it with my Theta. My only issue and it is small is the swivel head doesn't always stay tight which causes a few issues form time to time but I have learned work with it.

    It's perfect for our city and country adventures. I do wish it had some sort of quick release option not just the screw on method but it does what I need it to do. Great size for my compact camera backpack.

    This is a good product if you are just starting out with your camera. The tripod it self isn't that strong though. It can easily wear out.

    Ideal for a GoPro in tight places or even an iPhone holder for the amature filmmaker utilizing the iPhone 6's awesome 120 frame per sec slo-mo camera setting. The legs bend to any position. A great little accessory.

    This product is small but effective for use in group photos or even selfies or videos! It was a gift for a budding young photographer and her parents are now using it!

    It does the job. Legs are flexible and fairly sturdy. The catch screw that holds the ball joint in place is not as tight as it can be, but will hold the joint in place. Good product for the price.

    The legs are wrapped in foam not like a gorilla pod. This makes it comfortable to hold while you are shooting video. Stood up just fine under the weight of my camera. The ball head was ok too.

    Easy to use and just the right size to stick in a notebook coat pocket. The legs are actually strong enough not to give out and collapse
