I was really frustrated!! I purchased this tripod to use on a trip to Africa. Upon arrival, I opened my luggage to find the tripod in three pieces. I tried to reassemble it, but the legs will not stay put in the body. I will be returning it.

It could be very handy in those unusual situations where you don't want to drag a large, heavy tripod. It is only meant for small, compact cameras, though! I would not attach anything else to it!

I bought this product for my daughters Canon PowerShot. It works great, we have taken it on hikes, vactions, and to sporting events. You can get it to attach to just about anything, with a little tinkering. My dauhgters has also used it for still photos in Macro and it has worked well.

Comments about Quantaray FlexPod Plus Flexible Tripod (Blue) - A Tripod You Can Use Almost Anywhere - Any Time!:

Do not buy this poorly designed product. The product broke with the first attempted use by my 11 year old daughter. The design of the ball and socket joint seems to be flawed. The internal pin did not function and the ball simply pulled out of the joint. Once out there is no way to repair. Very disappointing.

Comments about Quantaray FlexPod Plus Flexible Tripod (Blue) - A Tripod You Can Use Almost Anywhere - Any Time!:

I would definitely recommend using a timer (and remote if possible) when shooting with the pod, as pushing the trigger causes the whole unit to shake a bit, thus detracting from any benefits it has as a tripod.
