Wow, did I need one of these tripods. I've been looking for one for awhile now, and then put it on the back burner until I saw this one. This aluminum tripod is perfect for taking videos of what you are doing or want to publish on the internet. There are three height extensions on each leg for filming from the ground or up to a table top. It's compact and folds easily for carrying. The phone receptacle is adjustable for most phones. I use an iPhone 5S and there is plenty of adjustment for a small or larger phone. The phone bracket is attached to a handle for tilting the phone sideways or upright. I think that sideways works best for YouTube videos. Each adjustment has a locking or tightening mechanism so that your phone is secure and won't slip while you are filming. This tripod is perfect for my amateurish usage.
I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
