This product does not emit light of its own (much like this spectrometer and this spectrometer too), so the standard review format will not be used and the product will be assigned a rating at once. A very high rating too, as it has performed absolutely flawlessly since I received it. Since I use it almost exclusively for this website (I use it for shooting a lot of the videos of other products here and hosting them on YourTube), I think that it indeed deserves to be rated.

This is the Tabletop Tripod. Its purpose is to hold still & video cameras steady, so that the photographs or video made with that camera aren't furry because of unwanted movement.
Unlike bulky large tripods, the Tabletop Tripod is small and compact, and folds even smaller for storage or transport.

Although the product is made predominatly out of metal, it has generously thick rubber feet so that the tabletop or other surface on which you deploy the tripod will not be marred.


 SIZE


To use the tripod, pick up the unit and turn it upside-down. You'll see a red "button" with the word "PUSH" on it. Push in on this "button", and while still pushing, use your other hand to rotate the two topmost (from your perspective) legs clockwise (as though tightening them). Once you have them out a bit, you can release that button. Continue rotating the legs until they stop; once all three legs are in their correct positions, you'll hear a fairly loud "CLICK".

On the mounting plate (after you turn the tripod rightside-up of course), you'll see a " 20 threads-per-inch male screw. Locate the matching female receptacle found on the underside of many still and video cameras, and screw the camera onto the tripod (or screw the tripod onto the camera!) until it stops tightening.

Right under the camera now, you'll find a thumbscrew; turn this counterclockwise (as though loosening it) a turn or two, then move the camera on the X- and/or Y-axis until it is where you want. And (while still holding the camera in the desired position), tighten that thumbscrew until it does not turn any more.

HOW TO DEPLOY & USE THIS PRODUCT.



When you are finished using the tripod, just reverse the above steps (you may omit the steps involving the thumbscrew), and put it away.

Although this tripod isn't all that water-resistant, it can be cleaned with a damp rag when necessary -- no harm there.
