    Works but a couple picky things I would have liked

    Okay, so, for the money this tripod is pretty good. I've used it extensively for the past couple of weeks while shooting a stop-motion animation film for school. The things that are disappointing: (1) No cover/carrying case like with my last tripod; (2) When raising camera up or down the centerline tends to shift left/right making it quite shaky if you are trying to hold position for exact shooting; and (3) the base that attaches to the camera and sits in the tripod isn't very secure it seems, again...a little wobble in it so you want to be sure not to touch the camera if you are needing motionless shots...Other than that, like I said, it works and is a great tripod for the money but I don't think it would cost too much more to throw in a cheap carrying case...

    Junk

    My fault, the blame is mostly mine, thinking a $19 tripod would be anything more than cheap plastic junk. I saw the "Sunpak" label and thought I was buying a different model. Sunpak makes other, sturdier models for about $10 or $15 more -- not sure the specs on them, but they are usually light gray and black, as opposed to all solid black, like these. I didn't pay close enough attention to the details on these tripods and accidentally ordered four of them for my middle-school film class. They have all lost a part or broken in some way within one week. Yes, a middle-school film class can be rough on equipment, but my tripods usually last at least 6-12 months, not 6-12 days.

    this is a tripod that has multiple features and is by far the best bang for your buck if your looking for an easily transported medium/ large tripod with a quick detach interface. it is very lightweight making it that much more portable, dual extension tube legs with locking tabs, a short twist lock collar on the inside middle ensuring the tripod doesn't break itself down mid shot regardless of angle, horizontal and vertical axis adjustments (one thumbscrew for horizontal, and a hand twist bar about 9" for the vertical axis), in the midst of all those features it also allows rapid adjustments to vertical raise/ lower the focal plane with a ratcheting gear arm(to raise and lower the camera once your other values are locked into place), rubber feet, wide mouth female contact and matching male quick detach surface that can stay affixed to your cameras tripod bung... i bought this a while back for 69$ and felt as if i was getting a decent deal so for the 20$ price you really won't find much better... do NOT beat on it though, it is definitely not a tactically enabled unit and is for to-&-fro picture taking, not to bounce around in the ned of your truck, all the material is sturdy but thin-walled, and by only downsides to this (because of the price that (I) paid is the small variations in movement while pushing the button because of its light duty build-however it can be overcome by simply letting go of the camera before the shot takes place, and the other downside i found (again based on (MY) price was that the vertical adjustment portion is increasingly wobbly the higher it goes... which is about 18", would have been great if they put some rubber stabilizers in their or something to keep tension on the tube, also watch your finger ;)

    Terrible quality pass on this tripod

    I've bought and used cheap Dynex(another Best Buy brand) tripods from Best Buy before and they have been fine for the amount paid. I actually even have them still 7 years later. I decided to get this Platinum Plus one to take backpacking because it was so lightweight. I've used it a couple of times and it is not even worth the amount I paid for it. It is terrible quality and the legs bow when fully extended. i would never be able to step away from my camera because the slightest wind would probably knock it over. Spend a little more and get the Manfrotto tripod or any other tripod. It's worth spending a little more to make sure you have a reliable tripod, even if it is just for occasional use.

    Picked this up to use with a Canon EOS Rebel T5i and it held up well for a beginner stand.

    We spent over an hour looking at all the tripods. Finally picked the one we thought was perfect...bought it. Took it out on our trip and one of the legs was defective.

    There are some tricks with this, but that's going to be the case with any tool it multiple adjustments that need to be locked most of the time. Once you get a hang of which knob, handle, or other piece adjusts for whatever angle or movement you wish to perform, this is a fantastic tool for video recording. It fit my Canon Vixia camera perfectly and I use it regularly now. It's a good height for most close to mid-range shots, but you're not going to be recording over people's heads while your camera is mounted on this. It collapses and sets up well, and the adjustments do make sense.
