Flip Video Action Tripod Review - Action Mode and Verdict Review

Sections

We tested the tripod with the Flip’s own Ultra HD camcorder and found it worked best secured to a flat surface.

It’s
also useful for a range of handheld camcorders like the Sanyo Xacti
which, ingenious as they are, can be frustrating in that they lack a
horizontal base, meaning they won’t stand up by themselves.

The
quality of the straps is excellent, with a strong Velcro grip and enough
fabric to go around a large object. This versatility allows you to be
creative enough to unleash your inner John Woo.

The clever design
enables the tripod to fold in on itself and take up very little space,
like the camcorders it’s intended for, so it’s a good addition to your
equipment if you want to capture the moment and space is a premium.

Verdict

Overall,
the Flip Video Action Tripod is a decent piece of kit that’s versatile,
compact and light enough to carry in your pocket, and for £17, it’s a
worthy and highly affordable accessory when you need to travel light but
still be resourceful.
