When I was at home recently, visiting my grandparents for Chinese New Years, I found this little gem in the closet. It was from way back in my dad's journalism days (I'd never have guessed!), but he had forgotten all about it. Anyways, he let me have it, and I'm super psyched! I've been shopping around for a full sized tripod for a while, but all the good ones (that don't look like their legs are just going to snap off) have a going rate of at least $100 which was more that I really wanted to spend.
I think it's really funny that the brand is "Hollywood Tripod" which is not currently still a brand, I think?
