Sony VCT-R100 Lightweight Compact Tripod with 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head – Review:
PUT THIS ONE IN YOUR BACK PACK!
This is a well-made, sturdy tripod. It is easy to assemble and easy to fold away when you have finished. And its compact folded dimensions are very handy. I compared the claimed specs with what I found, as follows:
Claimed folded length 14 inches. I found 13 7/8 inches.
Claimed extended height 39 inches, I found 39 3/8 inches
Claimed weight 1.8 lb, I found 1.45 lb.
When fully extended it seems a bit short, but this is, no doubt, a result of designing it to fold up so compactly. I have had sturdier tripods, but this one is certainly sturdy enough for most photographic opportunities.
