Jessops TP327 Tripod
Advantages: Adjustable. Easy to carry. Has a spirit level inbuilt.
Over my time in college studying a photography A Level, I found that I needed a reliable tripod that didn't mean spending hundreds on an over the top professional tripod with fancy features. I checked out a few cheaper than this, but eventually decided this was the better option and popped into my local Jessops to pick one up.
I was very please when I returned home with my new toy. As it does everything I needed it to and was very reliable. To really test out how good and sturdy the tripod was, I took my 32mm film camera into a low light and set it up on my tripod with a low shutter speed. Having borrowed a friends tripod to do this previously my results weren't good, but with this tripod I found that my photographs had developed looking perfect!!

When the legs are all together, you can carry the tripod around with the thick plastic handle attached to it. Very portable!
You can adjust the legs of the tripod to reach the perfect positioning for your photographs/video work, and when fully extended the legs reach around a meter and a half long!
There isn't much else I can tell you about the tripod, oh! except that it has a nifty little inbuilt spirit level. Handy for those moments when you need to be extra picky about framing and getting it all level.
Overall though, this tripod has served me very well. It's sturdy, very easily adjustable and suits my needs, and is even portable! A great product that I would definitely recommend.
Summary: A great tripod from Jessops, definitely worth its price.
