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 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.

I read somewhere prior to purchasing this tripod that the ball head was made of plastics but it is in fact metallic which is very nice. While I would not trust this tripod with my Medium format systems or with my Nikon SLR (F5) system, I certainly think this tripod is very good for use with mirrorless and 35mm rangefinder systems. I'm going to use this tripod with my Leica M7 and I will be able to use ISO 100 films again. The legs are quite stiff to extend and head movements are limited but for the price, you can't really ask for more than this nice package.

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 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!

Next day delivery, was great. As soon as I took the product out of the box to set it up the handle to crank the tripod was at its capacity height broke the handle right off... I am unable to put back into box to ship back to Amazon. Really disappointed because I was planning on using it and now I just have to toss it in the garbage... Poor flimsy plastic... Horrible experience. Not impressed, since Polaroid is supposed to be a well known company.

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.

I purchased this a while ago and recall having to throw it out because it broke (one of the legs came off). Then again you get what you pay for. I found this to be a fairly flimsy tripod but maybe if you are very delicate with it and only need to use it once or twice then this is the tripod for you. Definitely not something a professional would purchase though, as those tripods are easily $200 and up.
