I found this Conman Flexible Camera Tripod online ( https://amzn.to/2JCLFtR ). I needed a small travel flexible tripod for my my vlogging with my phone and camera.

I have been using it for over 2 weeks and like the compact yet durable tripod. Starting from the legs, they are metal wire legs covered with rubber. I bend them for a lower tripod height or to use them to grip a pole or branch. The legs are sturdy. The only complaint would be the base of the 3 legs do not spread wide enough and are plastic. This makes it hard to wrap objects that are wider than 4 inches. On the side of the legs base is a 1/4 inch mount for accessories. Pretty useful if you have needed to add a mic or light accessory to your vlogging rig.
I love the ball head mount. Its all metal base and ball head is very well built. It holds my 2 pound DSLR as well as my cell phone camera without sliding. The top base mount has a 1/4 inch mount and a hidden fold out smart phone holder. The smartphone holder is large enough for my 6.9 inch Samsung Note S20 Ultra to fit in as well my other cell phones. The 1/4 inch mount fits most cameras and dslrs. The issue with the 1/4 inch mount is the lack of tightening knob. I basically can have to twist the base mount against my DSLR to tighten, which may mar the base labeling of my camera or mount at an incorrect angle.
I also had issues removing the 1/4 mount off the ball mount. Coman must have put thread lock or glue in the 1/4 inch mount. Even wrenching it with my hands i was not able to loosen it from the ball mount.
The kit came with a bluetooth remote trigger. Hold down the single button for 5 seconds to pair it with a smart phone. It basically calls the down volume key to trigger the smart phone to take a picture or start video recording. Simple and effective. The only problem is the lack of a easy way to open the remote to replace the battery. There are not visible slots. I guess i will have to deal with it when the battery expires.
Overall, this is a good tripod with flexible legs. Definitely more heavy duty than plastic grip tripods. I actually bought 3 of them, one for my camera, and two for lighting.
