Comments about Sunpak Sunpak FlexPod Gripper Tripod w/Ball Head (Orange/White):

I would reccomend practicing attaching to different objects and getting angles right before using on pix's you want to keep. I used it mounted on a high fence. Getting the angle right when I could not use the view finder made it a little tricky. After several shots I got the right angle but wished I had practiced before going on the trip. Would have been less frustrating. This came as part of the package with my camera. Not sure it is necessary for my photo needs but was fun to have and way less cumbersome than a traditional tripod.

Don't waste your money on this, it broke within 3 seconds of fitting a small compact camera. Broke at the shaft of the ball head when tightening. Extremely poor construction.
