Product Description

Size name:8"

Regardless if you're a casual photographer/videographer or a serious "prosumer" there's a Polaroid tripod designed with your needs in mind.

That's because we design our tripods with intelligent in-demand features like fluid pan-head, braced center columns, all-terrain leg tips, dual levels, compact-footprints, ergonomically designed carry handles and foam grips-and everything else you'd expect from a tripod line inspired by over half a century of imaging innovation. And to ensure they're part of your "accessory arsenal" for the long term, we've crafted them from industrial grade, lightweight aluminum to ensure they always keep your valuable equipment on solid ground.

No matter if you choose our ultra compact desktop models, our unique monopod or our ruggedized all terrain models, you'll immediately understand why Polaroid tripods are considered the ultimate in "classic image stabilization"

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.

For the price, it is an OK tripod that can do the job for small home cameras. The quality of the plastic is not great and got I even it with some cut marks and scratches around the edges, most probably, coming like that from the manufacture itself. Looks and feels a bit on the fragile side and the joints are certainly not as smooth as more expensive tripods... I don't believe that harsh and repetitive manipulation of the axes will make it last for a long time but I think it will be more than enough for the small video camera I will mount on it... Certainly not for any professional or serious photography or video work

This tripod was pretty disappointing. You get what you pay for but I really expected a little more from this. The plastic used throughout the tripod is very cheap feeling and the tripod itself doesn't feel stable at all with or without a camera mounted on it. The levers feel and operate cheaply and everything feels like it's going to break when you interact with it. It sits wobbly on the ground (even when perfectly levelled).

Bottom line: It just doesn't feel firm or stable at all. Not recommended unless you're on a really, really tight budget. Spend the extra bucks and get something worth the money.

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. :)

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.

Consider the price this is a good deal. Item arrived in good condition, no parts falling off or anything.
Since this product is mostly made of plastic, I would advice people not to use it in cold condition as it will break easily with the plastic build and be gentle when turning the knobs etc. This is great for causal use but for anything serious you may want to get something with metal build. For the low price this is 5 stars product.

No problem with the seller, but this product is poor. Save your money and purchase something better ie spend more. I connected my camera (with 55-300 lens) to the mount and in disconnecting at the baseplate the metal tab used to turn the bolt into/out of the camera bottom fell off the first time removing. I didn't over-tighten - just low quality. Most tripods have an e-clip or similar fitting to keep the same mounting bolt held into the tripod baseplate. This just has the bolt passing through the baseplate(cheap plastic) with nothing to keep it retained - the bolt in time will wear free/fall out.

The price might seem right, but even if it was free it is not worth the pending frustration and disappointment.

All Right, So I wanted to buy a "cheap" tripod as it's going to be used as a steady tripod for a Webcam.
But it's just too cheap for me to even recommend it. All right it 50% off, but that would be a Terrible purchase at regular pricing.
One of the little plastic tab to "lock / unlock" the legs extensions broke on the first "unfolding" of the tripod, now leaving me with an "always unfolded" leg.

Pros :
It's light
Affordable
Bag
Cons :
Cheap
Flimsy
Fragile
