ORIGINAL REVIEW (4 STARS) Such a great tripod for everything I need it for. (Also was delivered on earliest day of estimated arrival!)

I have a Canon t2i hooked up to it with a standard 18-55 lens and it seems more than sturdy. Although I have not used it outside, which I may do once a year - and if it happens to be windy - I will make sure it is secured. The only problem I found so far is when flipping camera to a vertical position, it won't be completely level with the Canon t2i - as the twist button is in the way (see attached photo). It is only off by mere degrees, but enough to notice when you are taking a picture.

For the price of this Polaroid tripod, you cannot go wrong. Great for beginners :)

UPDATE NOVEMBER 4, 2015 (3 STARS): After 3 fall photo shoots, this tripod was definitely sturdy outdoors in wind, but a few pieces are already worn out. The adjustable twist latch (just above the circle in the photo) that allows the camera to go from horizontal to vertical and every angle in-between seems stripped, it just keeps turning and turning, and won't tighten so the camera will stay "locked" in any position. Also, the twist button that I circled in the attached photo, the one that allows you to adjust the angle in which you point your camera (ground to sky) tightens but whatever mechanism it is attached to does not work. My camera is constantly falling "face-first" on its own, even with my smallest lens: 18-55 mm, and one of these days I think my camera is just going to snap right off.

I have made several videos for Youtube and am always looking for somewhere to mount my camera. I have a Contour but a Gopro or any camera with a standard mount will fit.

The first thing I was happy about was the height. These things at 42'' sit nice and high and you are able to adjust the top angle as well. you can also go shorter or even just shorten one leg if you were setting it on a ledge..

It is a repetitively sturdy stand but it is quite light weight. It wouldn't hold up in a wind storm, but it doesn't go outside for me very often.

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

It is a great tripod if you're into landscape and night photography..

Would be great if it was a bit more durable. After a year, one leg cap (the bottom rubber part) fell off on my last trip to Quebec City and the handle for holding it in hand while walking fell apart. Need better bonding for these bits and pieces.

Pretty basic but solidly built and does why it has to do. If you need a level or more complex functions then go for something in a high price range but if you just vlogging or doing product reviews thus is fine.

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. :)

This tripod was Geat, it comes delivered in a small clean box and inside has a carry bag so that when you've finished using it your able to carry it. My sister is a photographer in e UK and on a visit to Canada she didn't have enough room in her luggage and so I purchased this.
She said it was a great product, easy to use and set up and would recommend this to any new photographer beginning on their journey as its a handy inexpensive tool.
You are able to adjust the height on the tripod and also adjust the pan of the camera head.

This tripod is made with very cheap plastic material, after 2 uses the pan lock snapped off, and one of the leg locks snapped off. The pan head is very sticky and unable to do any smooth movements unless you grease up the joint (which will still cause jittering). The height is awesome though, but for plastic made in China I would pay the extra money and get a solid one.
