They're both still £2.99 for me, but one is out of stock with up to 2 week dispatch, the other is still 24 hour dispatch.

It might be worth going to digitalrev.com, then to the "Today Only" page, they should both be available on there for £2.99 delivered.

LOL the review on the site says they're a bit flimsy but I guess you have to expect that for the price

"I got this because it was really cheap and light so it would be suitable to take travelling. It would also not be a huge loss if I lost it or it broke.

When it arrived it came packaged in a box with the carry case. The tripod itself is ok, don't expect Gitzo like sturdiness though. One of the legs was slightly bent on mine but the tripod still functions well. It is also a 3-section as opposed to 4-. The quick release is useful, if a little loose when attached, and the whole thing weighs only 750g.

Overall, it is almost as sturdy as a cheap travel size Manfrotto (albeit with slightly worse build quality!) but for the price, it is fantastic."

You're welcome!

Worth a punt for the odd photo I take at night with a long exposure

Had a Prepared for Shipment email at 04:52.

Then......

Had a Shipment Notification email at 04:55.

Delivery expected by: 03/Jul/2013.

looks sturdy on the pic. wish it was taller. still hot

Just had my YP88 order cancelled due to 'discontinued by the manufacturer'. Oh well thought it was too good to be true.

Received my 3 yesterday (Saturday), only 2 weeks for delivery which is pretty good from Hong Kong.

Quality of the Tripod is ok, obviously not the best I have seen, but for £2.99 it looks pretty impressive. The Tripod has lots of adjustments that can be made, lots of knobs to twist and turn.

The carry bag that comes with the Tripod is nice and simple and looks good, everything comes in a nice retail box all wrap up with meters and meters of bubble wrap. I had 3 packages and each package must have at least £2.00 worth of bubble wrap (thats £6 in bubble wrap that I can use. that makes each of my Tripods cost just £1 each. lol

Thanks OP for the heads-up.

You're welcome Da11as! Mine came at the weekend wrapped in a ton of bubblewrap too, it must have cost more than £2.99 for the airmail and packaging!

I'm happy with the quality for the money, its about the same quality as the Amazon basics tripod that costs £15. I needed to replace the amazon one as the tilt and swivel head quickly became too loose to support my camera, this one actually seems like a better design and its nice and light to carry around. I'm impressed too for the money, I wish I ordered 2!
