Perfect for hiking!

I was looking for a tripod that was lightweight and compact to use while hiking. I purchased this and it well suited my needs! The carry case is an added bonus.

V. Good Value

If you're a photo enthusiast, travel and want something light (1Kg) that fits into your suitcase, this tripod does the job nicely. It has held up well for me over the last 3 years and travelled well. My DSLR is fine on it with a 18-135 zoom lens; but, if I put on the heavier 100-400 mm zoom lens, it leads to the tripod being just "OK", sometimes less than "stable". Conclusion? There is a trade-off between travel convenience and photo quality (but only with heavier lenses). Overall, it is good value for money.

perfect sized tripod, light weight, folds up to the size of water bottle just slightly taller, comes with a carry bag. I recommend this tripod

Not for the DSLR, incorrect specs...

I have a Nikon D300, and when I tried this tripod, I couldn't prevent camera shake without using a remote. Fully extended, the tripod wobbles too much. The specs say it will hold up to 3.5 kg. My camera weighs 1.5 kg, and I think any more weight would make the tripod unstable. If you have a point-and-shoot or something else thats small and light, then I'd say this isn't bad. If you're looking for a tripod to hold your DSLR, look at something else.

Bang for your buck

Purchased this Tripod back in October so far it has been one of the best investments i've made. Its affordable and sturdy, even with some of my large heavier lenses it keeps a great hold on my camera. Its also super light weight I have no issues carrying it around wherever I go. Best bang for your buck tripod!

The Best Tripod

I was looking for a tripod that was both light in weight and compact. The Optex Traveller fit my needs exactly. I plan a trip to Europe in May and I needed a tripod for my photography plans. This unit is sturdy yet lightweight, easily opens to its full length, yet compact enough to put in your carry-on bag. This Optex comes with a zippered carrying bag. Excellent value.

really good lightweight tripod!

its a good bang for your buck I've been using it for about 2 weeks now and I've had no problems. the ball head is fantastic really smooth and all metal construction the bubble level really helps and the quick release plate is solid. it was a little bit shorter than I thought it would be but I don't really need it to be. Good strong lightweight tripod!
