      Not good for larger zoom cameras

      Build quality seems to be ok for the price but overall the product doesn't meet my needs. I have a Nikon P900 (the super-zoom moonshot camera) and my hope was that the pistol grip on this would allow me to be at high zoom and then lock the camera without having to twist a lever to tighten. The pistol grip does a much better job with this, but unfortunately this tripod has the same problem as just about every other tripod at this price range: the center column shifts no matter how tight everything is or what elevation it is at. What this means for a camera like the Nikon P900 is that, when you are zoomed in on something and your camera is pointed even the slightest bit upward, the camera moves down slightly once you take your hands off the pistol grip/tripod lever. This isn't a problem for your standard zoom lenses, but for the P900 that slight move makes an enormous difference when fully zoomed meaning the object I want to take a picture of can't even be in my viewfinder when I'm setting up the shot if I want it to be in the final picture. TL;DR: Fine for standard photography, bad for high-zoom, terrible for Nikon P900.

      Not Meant for a DSLR Camera

      This tripod is probably great for people who just want it for their cell phone, or a light point and shoot camera. However, I bought it to use with my Nikon DSLR 7500 and it does not handle the weight well at all (I'm not using a large lens with it either, just a 17-85mm zoom lens). It feels as though it could tumble over with the wind easily and the winding handle is not sturdy at all. It unwinds rapidly as soon as I take my hand off the handle, no matter what position I put it in. I started using my camera strap to wrap around it, after I got the camera positioned, just to try and prevent it from spinning and unwinding. Would not recommend to anyone who wants to use this with anything heavier than a small point and shoot camera.

      Poor Quality Product - Very Disappointed

      I purchased this product to support my DSLR camera, because the product specifications stated that the tripod would indeed support the weight of my camera. When I unboxed the item, I immediately noticed how lightweight and rather flimsy the tripod was. I attached my camera (with a small 50mm lens) to the tripod. The tripod was "wobbly" and did not sturdily support my camera. Then, the tripod fell with my camera attached, but fortunately, I caught it just before it hit the ground. I would not recommend this product, unless you need a tripod for a small point & shoot camera, or a phone. Save your money and invest in a better quality product.

      I love this tripod. I got it to use with my iPhone X and it is the perfect combo of price and features. It is well made and sturdy and very quick to open and close. I love the pistol grip feature. You simply pull the trigger and point in any direction, then let go and your done. So easy to use! There is also a crank for up and down so it is very easy to adjust for precise shots. It also has a bubble level built in. For the price this has everything I need and it feels well built and it's quick to setup take down. It collapse fast so it's easy to store as well. I am super happy with this tripod!

      Poor Quality Product / Zero Customer Service

      Defective right out of the box. it took over 10 days of daily phone calls and emails to Tocad/Sunpack to get a response. At first it seemed hopeful that they would send a replacement part but it turned out to be a hollow promise. 20 days later and still no part. Contact them again and they take another week to tell me that part was sent. Baloney! This is going back to the store and I will be disputing the charge with my credit card company. Hope that you do not have to experience what I did. Sunpack used to be value leader but now they just are slapping their name on junk and not standing behind it. I suggest you look at Manfroto. They may seem like more money but in the end the Sunpack will cost you far more.

      I bought my camera and realized I didn't have a tripod so I had to run to Best Buy and get one. There were cheaper ones there but I just couldn't get myself to purchase them. I finally settled on a medium priced tripod. I was expecting it to be basic but I am very happy and surprised. I LOVE the way the top swivels. I also love how expandable it is. I do a lot of crafting projects and occasionally I will record what I'm doing. I love how when I'm sitting in a chair the tripod extends far enough that I can have the camera looking over my shoulder, then I love how the neck swivels so it can be looking down at my work. The level on the tripod is also very helpful to make sure my shots are straight and balanced.

      Flimsy - Broke after 5 - 6 uses

      This wasn't the most expensive tripod but it said Lifetime Warranty (limited). The handle used to raise the height broke off. Tried to glue it but no luck. Only used in the house at family functions. I now read to return it I must: Should service be required, the product should be carefully packed (in the original packaging if possible ) and sent, prepaid and insured, along with a check or money order for $15.95 (shipping and handling), to the address listed below. A note briefly describing the nature of the defect should also be enclosed to expedite handling. Proof of purchase and payment for shipping and handling LIMITED WARRANTY all right. Too much of a hassle!!!

      Quality at a bargain price

      I just got into photography about 6 months ago. I wasn't really sure if having my own tripod was necessary, as my boyfriend has a couple of higher priced ones he lets me use. Knowing the cost of his, I decided not to get my own, plus his are very heavy to carry around! Upon a chance trip to Best Buy, I saw this model. First thing that appealed was the "gun" on the top. I love that. Second I picked it up and oh boy! LIGHT as a feather in comparison. The final deal sealer, the budget friendly price: about 1/4 of the ones we had already. I use this tripod all the time, so does my boyfriend who initially wasn't impressed with it, but once he used it, really digs it. Hurry up and go get one today!
