Last week, I received the 41-inch Telescope Tripod from DreamLifter to test out and review. The tripod is made from aluminum alloy and can rotate 360 degrees. It’s lightweight and comes with a phone attachment and a carry bag.
I have been looking for a lighter tripod to use for reviews and with my lightbox. My old one is more heavy duty, and while great for outdoor activities, it’s hard to get my camera screwed onto the base. The legs also tend to stick when expanding them as well.
This tripod is definitely lighter and far easier to set up. Its smaller size makes it perfect to use on the table for filming reviews, so no more propping my phone up on whatever random item I happen to have at hand. The smartphone holder is pretty secure as well, allowing me to move the entire tripod without having to worry about the phone falling out.
I can also quickly attach my regular camera to it as well. However, my camera is heavy and I’m worried that it makes the tripod a little too top heavy. The tripod has been stable so far, but I don’t want to risk it falling over depending on what I’m doing. You can check out my unboxing video over at YouTube
Overall, it’s a very nice lightweight tripod. It’s perfect for phones and smaller cameras, and is great to use for filing videos. It will fit the larger camera but make sure you keep an eye on it. The tripod is available on Amazon for $24.99 (+ shipping).
