Good for some purposes May 30, 2009
By Doreen Klein-Pritsos
I read the other reviews and thought I would try it. It worked well when I needed to attach the camera onto a railing fine, but it was not that steady for standing up. Part of it may have been that my camera has the hole to attach it on the side of the bottom instead of the middle. It was inexpensive (cheap really) but I'm glad I got it as a wrap-around-holder for when I'm using it in a place that is not flat or wide enough for the camera to sit safely. I did like that it was small & portable.

Not as bendable as I expected Sep 28, 2009
By Tracy McKibben
I take a lot of model railroad photos, and needed a tripod that could be bent to accommodate various "terrain" and scenery on a model railroad layout. Having seen various pictures of the Gorilla tripods being bent into all sorts of ridiculous positions, I thought I'd be getting something similar by purchasing this tripod. Not so. It is flexible and sturdy, but it's flexibility is limited. For example, the Gorilla tripods apparently can be bent into a shape that allows them to be hooked over the edge of a tabletop. The Digipower tripod won't do that. Also, bending the legs leaves little black flecks of paint all over your hands.

Ugh, it stinks May 30, 2010
This mini tripod will do the job it was intended for, it's flexible enough for my picture-taking needs. It's hard to get the camera level since there is no flexible head to adjust on top. And if you try and attach a camera that has the tripod fitting on the side, it will definitely tip over. I learned that the hard way with a previous tripod I purchased - and eventually misplaced. This one is for for light-weight plastic, ultra-compact cameras. Don't try and put a heavier camera on it no matter what location the fitting is on the camera, center or off-side.
But my main complaint with this tripod is the strong odor it emits. I have smelled this odor before - it's some type of chemical odor from whatever they use in China to make plastics or paint. The smell is the same. Currently I have this outside hoping the scent will dissipate. When it arrived in the mail, I put it in a drawer in my bedroom where I store my cameras, the smell of it quickly overtook the room. I tried washing it to no avail, maybe I'm just super sensitive to scents but in case you are also, just a warning that it does stink.
Edited to Add: It's been 3 weeks and the tripod still stinks!

By Jack Pistachio
I actually use this tripod with my Nikon D50 DSLR (if I have a small lens on). Its nice because it fits into my two lens bag. Works well.

Excellent little tripod for those on the go May 26, 2010
By Jacob Wattenphul
Great tripod for any quick situation. Screw it on the bottom of your point and shoot camera and you can get a great picture without having to shimmy the angle with spare change and stuff. This product does the job very nicely and the price is right. Not for a large SLR camera but great for any point and shoot camera for those hard to prop up situations.
