A useful item

I bought this to use with 8X56 binoculars. Works great for that, but I mostly use it as a stable platform for my digital camera.

I bought the tripod based on price. The unit extends to a nice height that allows upward binocular motion without having to stoop. This is good for looking up to the stars. However, it is extremely lightweight and was not meant for this purpose. Not stable enough for higher magnification. But also its lightweight is a big plus when "something " is needed fr binocular use without carrying bulkier gear..

    Comments about Zhumell Lightweight Tripod:

    This is not a bad tripod for the price. It's not quite suitable for Astronomy unless on a tight budget. The legs are aluminum, but the top section is plastic. For Astronomy, I recommend spending more money and getting something a little sturdier.

        This is a plastic toy and the price reflects it. I bought it with the Celestron binocular package. I love the binocs but this useless piece of plastic went right in the trash.

          Comments about Zhumell Lightweight Tripod:

          This was my first experience with hayneedle. The Zhumell Lightweight Tripod was the perfect purchase. My wife and I have a digital camera and a rather large set of binoculars. The tripod works beautifully with either of them. The price is great compared to the quality of the tripod.
          It is very easy to use in relation to setting it up for standing or sitting. The quick release works easily. I have no complaints.

            This is part of the 15x70 binocular package. Great altazimuth movements. The lock handle is super. It holds the binoculars with ease. As advertised it is lightweight and this is a huge plus for portability. Additionally there is a center hook for hanging a weight for extra stability. I use a 2 1/2 lb weight and this works very well. The price is fantastic.

                Comments about Zhumell Lightweight Tripod:

                This is a replacement for a similar tripode that came with 20 X 80 Binoculars. It was lightweight and easy to set up and move around. Unfortunately one of the braces broke, foruntatley the tripode didn't crash and damage the binoculars. This new one looks a little better built where the braces attach to the center pole, so I'm hoping it will prove to be more reliable.

                  I bought this tripod for my Celestron 15x70 Binoculars before I seen there was a combo package that included them both smh. Nonetheless it is a fairly decent tripod. Just as good as I expected, [@] hasn't let me down yet :) It adjusts to a very reasonable height and makes looking at the moon just great. Even though it's made of plastic and metal parts, it is still very sturdy and looks cool. There are plenty of better tripods on the market, but be ready to spend upwards of $100 for them. I am very pleased with my purchase and look forward to using it this summer.

                    Comments about Zhumell Lightweight Tripod:

                    The tripod was purchased to use with the Zhumell monoculars purchased five months ago from Binoculars.com. The monoculars attach easily and securely. The tripod works well as a table top tripod or as a stand alone tripod to view and/or photograph landscape and wildlife. Both products were priced competitively.
