Review: Bestablecam / Bestayblcam Mini Tripod


This is a review of the Bestablecam / Bestayblcam Mini Tripod, a tripod for the Zhiyun gimbal and ostensibly for smartphones (with the right adapter) and small cameras.  Anyway, it doesn't matter - it can't do any of those.

I got this tripod as a stand for 360 cameras and selfie sticks.  I got mine from eBay.
It was shipped from China and took 16 days to arrive.



Here's the review:


In case you can't play the video at the moment, FYI it has terrible build quality.  It also doesn't have a standard 1/4-20 attachment.

Here it is next to an otherwise similar tripod from EEEKit.  As you can see, it can't even stand up because the legs are so loose.

It doesn't have a standard 1/4-20 tripod attachment either.

Needless to say, I'm returning this POS.

I hope you found this review helpful.  If I find bad products, I will not hesitate to point it out so you can avoid making the same mistake I did.

    1. I know, right? Maybe they outsourced the assembly to a marionette factory!
