2 out of 5 eggsOk

Pros: Cheap! I bought this because of the height it can achieve. Lightweight.

Cons: Everything about this tripod is good till you get to the head. All plastic :( Can not use it without a shutter remote. Would be a quality tripod with an all metal head.

5 out of 5 eggsFor what it is it is great

Pros: I got this as a Shell Shocker for under 20 dollars. I didn't need another tripod, but for 20 dollars. After it arrived I found I love it. It is light, and I know that is not always a good thing, but for what I use this for it is great.

Cons: 20 dollars. What do you think.

Other Thoughts: If I know I am going out with a plan I bring a real tripod, and a real camera. After this arrived I went for a walk in the woods and brought my trusty everyday Cannon Powershot along just for fun. You barely know you have this tripod on your shoulder when walking. Now I wouldn't set up an expensive camera on this at full extension on a windy day, but I found a few spots to break it out and get some decent shots that I would have just done freehand because I wouldn't have carried out a real tripod for a walk around. Now it sits in my trunk, and I find I often go get it because it is available. I have even used it with point and shoots so everyone can get in the picture. I would not leave a good tripod in the trunk to get banged up but this is perfect. As others have stated it feels much more stable and solid than I expected. If it lasts year or two it will be worth it, but if I leave it on a train somewhere I wouldn't sweat it. Yeah that almost happened.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Deal

Pros: Stable, hook to add on weight, level, stands high. For someone that needs an occasional tripod this was a terrific deal for $20.00. It stands high, it have a very stable wide based head.

Cons: The plastic parts feel low quality but they don't feel like they'll fall apart over night, just not last as long as some others might.

Other Thoughts: If you need an occasional tripod for landscapes or family portraits this is a great deal. There is a hook to add some weight for stability in wind, there's a level, thought small, and it stands really tall at full height. I was very surprised with the quality for the $20.00 cost.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesomeness

Pros: Tall, sturdy,quick release.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this because my old tripod was lousy and I got lucky and found this here for $20 and wondered until I opened it.
Very sturdy,smooth operating with a bag. I am not a professional but let's be honest if you are a professional you would have a different set up anyhow and if not you should not complain. I owned $130.00 similar one that was sticky from the beginning and it's feet did not rotate/it was a pain.
If you just take pictures of your kids sports, and nature this thing is awesome.
I am no expert but know a great deal and this is one at twice the price.
If you are doing "pro video" or a lot of it you probably want one with the dual hand thing...

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great if your tall 70inch height is perfect

Cons: Plastic adjustments don't feel like there ever tight enough. Movement is is sticky.

Other Thoughts: 20.00 item worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal on a great product

Pros: This tripod has a nice heavy construction with an easy to carry around weight. The removable camera moune allows for a quick setup and breakdown. The built in carry handle is a feature that I love as well as the multiple levels. Lastly is the pivoting feet, though I have not tried them outdoors yet, they are fantastic.

Cons: Wish tere was an option for getting more camera mounts.
