Broke after 2nd use

Bought this tripod 2 months ago. This product is so flimsy that it broke after 2nd use. It couldn't withstand even in moderate wind, the legs are so thin that they just gave in. The tripod was only holding my cell phone, not even a point & shoot camera. It's not repairable because there are no screws, nuts or bolts. It's past the 30 days return time Best Buy won't do anything about it. So don't buy this product and save yourself the time.

Camera shakes pressing shutter button

Bought this so my shaky camera won't shake when shutter button was pressed but alas still shakes. I guess my finger is too heavy!

Solid tripod at a good price

Upon receiving this tripod I was pleased to see the included travel pouch and noticed that it feels very solid. It holds the camera sturdy and includes a level so you can be sure about your photos. My only complaint is that one of the extending legs was stuck and wouldn't extend so I magically became a Greek god and used 10x the strength of a normal man to free the leg. After this ordeal it works just fine and moves smoothly now.

Compact and light

I am very happy with this purchase. It is extremely portable (short and light). It seems a bit flimsy, and after using it for 2 weeks every day, I have the impression that the tripod won't last an extremely long time.
