Versatile enough for making climbing movies.
Member Name: Thony
Advantages: Small, lightweight, secure
Disadvantages: Won't hold heavy cameras
I bought this tripod for making a climbing film in North Wales where I would be alone and without a flat, stable surface for a traditional tripod.
The legs of this are incredible flexible and grippy, perfect for attaching to rocks, trees and sheep and holds the camera securely. It takes a bit of a knack to get it set up properly, but you quickly get the hang of it.
The camera mount detaches from the tripod so the camera can be stored separately but very quickly attached to film/photograph at a moments notice.
The tripod is very compact so doesn't take up much space in a bag and is light so lets you carry plenty of other kit.
It's also very useful for the less exciting but unfortunately necessary task of taking family Christmas photos on auto-timer. It saves you having to balance your expensive camera precariously on a book while your 4 year old niece refuses to smile.
Summary: A very versatile tripod if you have a small camera,
