    We actually use this tripod for a projector. Not for a camera. It works perfect. Easy to adjust screws right in to top of tripod. Legs are adjustable and there is a handle to adjust the the projector for tilt up and down. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has a projector easy storage too.

    I've had a cheapo tripod that I've been trying to make it work. But literally the tipping point was when I paired my Nikon D7100 with a new Sigma 18-35mm Art lens (all purchased from Best Buy). It was way too heavy for my old tripod. This new Sunpak tripod did the trick! It can handle the weight and night/day difference with regards to ease of composition. Camera can now be tilted and moved very easily. I can't recommend this enough. Buy It!

    This is THE tripod to get at the starter level. it's solid enough to travel around a bit, and doesn't suffer from inferior plastic parts like some of the lwoer priced tripods. The pistol grip head allows for a crazy range of motion, and is strong enough to support my D3100 with a large 18-200mm zoom and a flash with lightbox. It is also slightly taller than the rest, which makes for better family photos. If I lose it, or break it, I'm buying another.

    I used it for my diy photo booth for my daughter's 1st birthday party. Easy to set up and use. The quick release attachment is really good to have so you can use easily detach the camera from the tripod so I didn't have to position the tripod. I'm not a pro or even consider myself a "photographer", but I do appreciate high quality photos that we can look back at and be ache to see what's the picture of and not blurry blobs lol

    This tripod was purchased to replace a Manfrotto trip which had lost two clamps on two different legs. I've always thought of Silk as pretty cheap, but this trip feels much sturdier than the one it's replacing. The trigger release works very well. Note: this tripod is NOT as tall as some; I'm using it to support a Sony DSQ-100, and it's great for that purpose. A small-ish digital camera would also be fine. I don't think I'll put my DSLR on it, however,

    I bought this for my wife who is an aspiring photographer and she absolutely loves it. It's very sturdy, even when it's really windy outside. Its ease of setup & use is great as well. To get out, put up, adjust & get it stable takes only a minute or two. The included carry bag makes it easy for her to move it to each shooting location and it's also very easy to get back into the carry bag when she wraps up her shoot.

    Just purchased a Canon Vixia HFR 800 Camcorder and needed a tripod to go with it. Liked the tripod's light weight, and the ability to support up to 11 pounds. Also appreciated was the pistol grip ball head with auto locking and the bubble level for easy exact leveling. Got it on sale and using acclumulated points, cost savings were more than 50% off! What's not to love?

    I bought this tripod for my Canon EOS 80D and since it's a heavy camera, I was worried that this tripod wouldn't be able to support it. However, it worked perfectly and it is very flexible. I also like how it came with a stand for your phone. This tripod is very reliable and i highly recommend purchasing it!

    I looked at a lot of tripods before purchasing this one. It has a lot of features that more expensive ones have and I honestly am not sure what else I could need. It's pretty lightweight, has lots of features (quick release, pistol grip ball head with auto trigger, self leveling feet, ect) but easy to set up and take down. The quality for the price really sold me on this tripod and I have no regrets.

    The Tripod has a great level on the handle and the standing lart of the tripod to ensure level shots. Holds steady and strong. If you are doing video I do not recommend this tripod. I would spend the extra for a more fluid head for panning. Great for still images and built well. Camera will detach from top very easily.

    I've owned several tripods and this one, by far, is the easiest and most durable I've ever had. Makes taking pictures or setting up for a live video a lot more efficient and fun. Works great whether your using a DSLR, phone or iPad. Adjustments are precise and immediate! Absolutely love this tripod!

    I purchased one of these tripods to replace and older tripod. I used it with my Samsung Galaxy Camera and it woke great. Purchased another one to use with my GoPro cameras. Mounted one GoPro on top and one on the lower mount. Made my video shooting great. The tripods are light, have bubble levets, so get your camera leveled is easy. Lightweight, but sturdy. Really great tripod at a great price.

    I bought this tripod for my daughter to use with her Cannon camera that she uses to record her weight lifting so that she and her coach can critique her form. This is a very stable foundation that screws into the bottom of the camera and can be tilted without worry that it will tip over or the camera will fall off.

    This thing is not only inexpensive but it was seriously practical! It locked in place and was super easy to transport! The ability to remove the cameras via quick snap was great but what I found even more useful was taking the whole pistol grip off cameras and all to catch every possible angle aircraft came streaking across the field! Works perfectly!

    I got this tripod to use with Nikon D7100 and heavier lenses in low light or hiking situations. It's rugged, but has a quick release head for the camera body. Ball/socket head allows for the most flexible camera movement I've seen and works great. I recommend this tripod to anyone. It's even great for using with my smaller camera when recording videos.

    I wanted to get a tripod that would work well without spending too much money. This tripod works great for the price. I really like the ease of use with the clips on the legs and the ball joint that adjusts the angle of the camera. It's much quicker than the traditional knobs that you have to tighten down each time you move the camera.

    Tough tripod with 2 angle finders, one in the tripod base and the other on the grip base for the camera. But that handgun type design grip it’s really great! You can set your angle camera view by pivoting it spherically while griping it and then release it and it has a tick lock. No more adjusting 2 bolts to set your view point!

    I purchased this to use for my niece 's Sweet 16. She asked me to be her photographer for the day. Very easy to get the camera on and off as well as being able to take portrait position photos. Not so sure about using it for videos. The handle has a bit of a choppy movement.

    I went in the store and blindly bought this tripod because it was on sale and I wanted one. When I went home and gave it a try, it worked perfectly. It holds up really well for a small camera and it allows you to keep your camera sitting vertically or horizontally. And the best part is the adjustable height. Great buy!
