I really wanted to like this tripod. I'm all for hunting for affordable (read: cheap), gear that works, and have bought Polaroid stuff in the past with great results (the Circular Polarizing Filter works great! Awesome glass). But this tripod is quite bad.

If you're using a point and shoot, it may not be THAT bad, but even then, it's not great.

The problem is two-fold:

First, it's quite flimsy. And when I say flimsy, I mean REALLY flimsy. It's not a problem if you're shooting indoors but the lightest breeze outside will result in your picture being blurry. Forget about timelapses and/or long exposure photographs.

Another issue with the flimsiness is that it barely takes the weight of my Canon T2i/550D, even with a mega light lens like the 50mm f1.8.

The other thing is the plastic head. The screw on to attach it to the camera has a tightener that came off after using it twice.

I really, really like affordable stuff. I really do. But I ended up returning this tripod and getting another one instead. A Dolica AX620B100, which hopefully will be better.

I'm not a snob by any means, but if you have a camera that weighs a little bit or are planning to shoot outdoors, this isn't the tripod for you.

Delivery was on time. Well, for the price it is good value. One minor concern, the head is plastic.Suggest not to over tighten.Has great features as per specs.mounted Canon t2i,no problem. Very sturdy. I recommend ,but with minor caution,DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN HEAD.. just a tip.

I only paid $20 for this on sale so I really cannot complain, that being said it really is the cheapest put together tripod I've ever seen. The legs themselves seem to be of okay construction but the little tabs to extend the legs and the crank to increase height are so cheap that I was afraid they were going to snap off with any use. I immediately packaged it back up when I got it and am reselling it on kijiji as I should've bought something better in the first place. If you are okay with a dollarama quality tripod than you can't go wrong with this, but it definitely was not for me.

While this is a very light compact Tripod it is not all that sturdy and is subject to wind movement outside when hooked up to my cameras. The heaviest camera I have right now is the Nikon D3100 and the tripod handles it with no problem when attached with my Sigma 18-250mm lens which adds a fair amount of wight to the camera.

It will serve my purpose of carrying it around while biking around in the summer months with my little Burley trailer also purchased from Amazon. A little sturdier one will probably be purchased at a later date. :)

For its price, you really can't complain.

The material feels nice. Some people say that it looks/feels like plastic, but hey ... there's a reason why you bought one a this price.
It is quite sturdy and I use it for my RX100. However, if you are using some other heavy DSLR camera, I'm not sure you would want to use this. Considering that the tripod itself might be a lot lighter than your DSLR.

Functionality wise, it is very good and easy to use. Lightweight for easy carry. Comes with a bag branded POLAROID on the side.

I consciously chose to buy a cheaper tripod as I'm a student. It's not high quality, but it's as good as I expected it would it for the price, and for that, I give it 4 stars. I would like if the legs were adjustable on knobs instead of the slide/lock mechanism. There are also no instructions. I've never used a tripod before, and it took some intuition on how to lock in the camera. I have a micro 3/4 camera, incase anyone was wondering if it would be compatible… answer is yes.

I see that a few people have some concerns regarding this product. I bought it for $25.99 and it was cheap purchase so I wasn't expecting anything fancy. It was easy to set-u and it was sturdy enough to hold my Canon T3 with 55-250 mm lens. So I'm pretty happy with the purchase b/c that was one of my worries.

It basically made of plastic, it's light-weight, so it's easy to carry. It has some cool leveling features on the camera mount and also by the legs of the pod. If you want a tripod that you could use and abuse all you want, I'd suggest to buy this one.

Hope this review helps!

Satisfied with this product: good height and stable at the feet with the help of paded swivel heads. Very lightweight and the clips on the adjustable legs seem to hold sufficiently. My only complaint would about the knob for tightening the base (where the camera or other device sits). It need to be tightened significantly to ensure stability. Given that it is plastic, I often feel it could break if I overtighten it. Overall, great product.
