    I absolutely love this tripod. I gave my first one to my son to use and I missed it so much that after a few months I had to go buy another one for myself! It gets high, and low, enough for any situation. The piston grip is a dream to work with and allows me to adjust my shots quickly, frequently and easily. I wouldn't go any other way!

    The red screw attachment is the BEST

    This is an awesome tripod for the beginner photographer .. the attachment for the camera mount is the BEST .. let me say that again “ The BEST” why you ask it’s like a giant screw without the little loop handle that never wants to stay down as you screw it on and off .. well they’ve solved the problem.. I literally sold my other tripod to buy 2 of these

    Great! Does what I need it to do. It’s sturdy and sits at a lower height than other tripods typically do which is exactly what I needed. This tripod holds my mirrorless SLR right over the top of my iMac at the perfect height so I can use it as a webcam for virtual work.

    Great Tripod

    I bought this tripod to fit in my suitcase for a recent trip to New England. Shot pix in Plymouth and Gloucester, MA and Bath and Bar Harbor, Maine. The tripod was easy to set up for each shot and worked very well with my Nikon D300S. Got lots of great shots! ! !

    Love it!!

    Posted .

    We were first time users for a tripod and I LOVE this one! We got it to take our own pictures with our Canon - PowerShot SX740 HS 20.3-Megapixel Digital Camera!! It was so easy to use and because of the excellent stabilization it offered we were able to capture professional level photography pictures for us just being amateurs :)) love that it has cell phone option capability too :)) the pictures attached, we used the tripod for :) also love that it comes with a bag to carry it in!

    It’s low cost manfrotto tripod, the quick release pistol grip is very nice, one pistol grip cost more than the tripod, it come with phone grip maybe cost about 10$, it’s a good deal

    Great and easy set, good build quality!

    Posted .

    Let me start by saying there is one main reason I got this tripod over others that Manfrotto makes, I like this brand. But the reason I got this exact one is because of the way that the legs extend, its not twist tighten where you have to screw the piece on the legs over and over to adjust its just a simple click open and close to set up or take down! - Build Quality - This is a great tripod and works very well for the reason I got it. Now that being said its not the most heavy duty tripod out there but I got this for mobility and to still be sturdy. Along with the speed of those clips for adjusting the legs in and out! So far its good and I like the way that they set up the mount so it's easy on and off with which ever device you're using. The adjustable moving head with twist knob and handle may take a moment to get use to but is still good quality. - Use and ability - This thing does what I want its a quick release leg system. The height for just about anything is there and you can go one step over the legs if you need to move up and down its got a bar set up to slide higher, which works and give more height. It is also light enough that I can strap it to the underside off my camera back pack and not really notice it, while still being heavy enough I'm not going to break it or worry about it falling over really. The handle by your camera works well but I will say isn't great for like panning shots, but I don't think its meant for this its just to adjust shooting angles quickly. As I said before the mount to the camera system is great and so quick to get on and off any device! Theres one other thing the top part that slides up and down actually comes off there so I guess if you wanted that could be used to hold your camera or device with out having it on the tripod? Thats honestly it for a tripod I think almost anyone will be happy with the quality of this product and I think is should hold up for quite a while! Oh and it comes with the camera clip and you can mount your camera right to the tripod with out getting anything else! thats cool ... Thanks for reading hope you like this thing if you get it because of my review, I enjoy mine and actually use it about everyday. ** that second photo with my hand in there is just showing you what will screw into the bottom of your camera, device, or that phone mount fo the quick release... if you have never owned one of these before**

    This particular one was sold a stripped screw of the part ROUND-PL. This is the compact solid aluminum compact quick release plate. I own another one; needed two for a project. I returned it and told the rep why. I'm not sure that she cared that that particular one was defective. Before you the box for this piece before you buy. Box looked untampered with as if delivered to the store with the defect.

    I am not a expert photographer but needed a tripod because after covid i don't ask any strangers to take a picture of my family so this tripod is necessity for me. I used it for one trip and it was really nice that i can quickly setup the tripod and frame it then use remote shutter to take pictures, worked perfectly. It is also easy of use because of the quick release button which i kept it attached to the camera itself. I got it for $49+tax which is the lowest i have seen for this model with bestbuy

    I bought this base on a employee recommendation and I got to say I really like it. The handle is short so it does not get in the way for me and my use, There are latches I guess is what you call them for the legs that you can open up to extended the legs for higher high. It is easy to adjust it to the high you like. This product is pretty universal so it should work with most modern day camera I can't say about older one, but it does come with an additional attachment that you can use I guess for cell phone and maybe older camera, but do the research and ask in store employee who know way more than me if you are using older camera.

    Worked Perfectly!

    Needed this tripod to record a series of videos with my iphone for an upcoming workshop. It worked perfectly! Be careful when you open the box, the mobile adapter comes loose on the box. I was about to return the tripod because it didn't include the adapter as shown on the box, long story short, found it at the bottom of the box when I was about to repackage for return. Make sure you turn the box upside down for the adapter to fall off and place it inside the bag. Is a sturdy and stable which what I needed for a more professional, no shaking, look.

    I continue to be impressed by this tripod. It is super easy to set up and is exactly as tall as me (5'1"), making it perfect to even get eye level shots when I'm out adventuring. Very intuitive to adjust!

    Just what I needed. The tripod height adjustability is great. Really like the ability to use the 'handle' to swivel up/down and move with the action. Plan to use at the races; would be good for any sporting event.
