a great idea but doesn't quite work
from Carrollton, MS
Comments about Silver Lead Adjustable Tripod/Easel:
I'm 5'5" and found this easel to be too short for me to paint comfortably, especially with larger paintings. It also doesn't seem sturdy enough to hold up to the abuse students would give it or even from my more energetic style of painting. I like that it easily can be either the easel or the tripod. So if you're short and aren't rough on your items this would work for you.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This thing is GENIUS
from Portland, OR
I'm so glad this tripod easel exists! I am a photographer and painter, and I love being able to use one tool for both purposes. The price makes it an excellent value. I find it holds a taller canvas than my other easel. It is easy to set up, lightweight, easy to carry. The only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because I can't tell yet how it will hold up over time. The joints, connections and smaller metal bars feel like they MIGHT bend if I'm not careful, and the tripod head doesn't move super smoothly, but it's still a solid value and I'm very glad I bought it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Lightweight and easy to set up
from Gloucester, MA
I like that I can set this up with great ease and it is very lightweight. The tripod attachment for a camera makes this extremely versatile.

Very versatile :-)
By Nani Allen
from Charlotte, NC
I've had this easel/tripod for about 5 years now and still love it. I've gone to a local park to take pictures and then turn around and paint my favorite image of the day right on the spot. I pair it with a small stool (that I bought here too) every time. And on breezy days, I use the paints/camera bag - leaving a few items inside (or rocks if necessary) and tie it to the middle of the tripod for stability.

I'm too tall for it/it's too short
from Sarasota. Fl
I unpacked it, excited to use it, only to find out that it is way too short for me. I'm 6'2" and the heighest the tray goes is about to my bellybutton. This is extremely uncomfortable and can give me back aches. It's a good easle (hence the "fantastic deal" I checked off")if you're, at max, a foot taller than the tray. But I can't use it so it's being returned.

Love this Tripod/Easel
from Sheridan, AR
I wanted an easel for outside...and needed a tripod. This item performs as both wonderfully. Switching from one to the other literally just takes a second! Its lightweight, comes with a storage bag (it actually FITS inside the bag easily!)And the price is VERY affordable! I'm completely satisfied!
It's everything I needed and more.

The easel/tripod works for my video shots as well as photography. I haven't used it as an easel yet, but I will. This is an awesome product.

Light Weight/Great Price!
By Landscape Painter
from East Quogue, New York
This easel is extremely light weight..great for plein air painting which I enjoy very much. The easel is very easy to set up and can be easily modified to accept a tray to hold my palette,water jars and brushes. On days that might be more breezy than I would like,I can simply attach a netted pocket on the cross brace to accept a weight..such as a large stone from the local surroundings..to keep it firm on the ground.
