Other Thoughts: I had high hopes for this. I bought it for my son. He is 10 and loves to make Lego character movies.. he needed somethig to hold his small point and shoot camera. While I was setting it up for him, I moved the legs out and one snapped off. The return shipping costs as much as a new one... lesson learned.. You get what you pay for...

Pros: Just got this today. So far it looks great though I haven't been able to use it yet as my Camera was delayed. Pretty sturdy, solid metal construction, should be able to do its job very well. I ordered the Sony HDR-CX210, I am not sure if it will even mount on it, but for $5 it's worth the risk, worst case I lost $5.
The screw where it mounts to the camera is 1/4 inch if that helps anyone. I ordered it because I would need a basic tripod for making videos for youtube.
Cons: Legs do not lock out with any kind of pin, just friction. This shouldn't be a bad thing as they still take 5-10 lbs of pressure to push in depending on how hard you pull on them. So combined you're talking about about 50 lbs of downward pressure to make them slip, there is no situation where that should be a factor.

This reviewer reports that his/her technical understanding of this type of product is Somewhat Low and has owned this product less than 1 day.
Pros: The mono-pod stick is fine for a value option.
Cons: The mount is all molded plastic and the relatively soft base is augured (profanity to use the sc re wed word) onto a threaded post. This failed after a few hours of rigorous use and I had to repair it with a locknut and some JB weld.
Other Thoughts: Do not buy this if you are looking for the 90 degree swivel mount. My unit came with a different mount that worked for me as a 70 degree +/- adjustment to do self portrait shots. but is does not look or act like the pictured 90 degree mount.

This reviewer reports that his/her technical understanding of this type of product is average and has owned this product 1 week to 1 month.
Pros: Its lightweight, tall, and seems to stand sturdy with my Nikon Coolpix L120 on it. The two different levels make it easy to get a nice straight picture. The clamps that lock down the legs seem built well, and unlikely to break.
Cons: There is a lever/crank that raises or lowers the height of the platform the camera sits upon. That crank arm is very flimsy and if you (like I did) don't unscrew the bolt that holds in the height rod, that arm will snap in half when you go to crank it. No Biggie as I can still raise and lower by simply pulling of pushing the platform.
Other Thoughts: Aside from the above mentioned, this truly is a good tripod. I have used it to make a few youtube videos and take pictures of the great outdoors (I do a lot of Hiking). Overall, I am pleased. For the Price you cant beat it.
