A tri­pod is a very impor­tant part for almost any pho­to or video shoot­ing, today the mar­ket offers a huge vari­ety of mod­els with dif­fer­ent sizes and char­ac­ter­is­tics. In this pub­li­ca­tion, I will review the Ulanzi MT-14 mini tri­pod mod­el, which is dis­tin­guished by its com­pact size, dura­bil­i­ty and low price.

Brief specifications

  • Max Height: 105mm
  • Min­i­mum Height: 70
  • Fold­ed length: 125mm
  • Max­i­mum load: up to 2 kg
  • Weight: 90 g


The tri­pod comes in a reg­u­lar pic­ture box with the Ulanzi logo. The box is made of thin card­board, but you should not wor­ry about the integri­ty of the tri­pod dur­ing deliv­ery, it is very dense and, when fold­ed, is not sus­cep­ti­ble to any dam­age. The tri­pod is also packed in an addi­tion­al plas­tic bag. Addi­tion­al­ly, I ordered a spe­cial head that allows you to fix the equip­ment mount­ed on a tri­pod at the desired angle. I will not dwell on it, I will only add that the sell­er has more func­tion­al heads of excel­lent qual­i­ty.


The first impres­sion of the tri­pod is quite good, it sits nice­ly in the hand, the mate­ri­als used in the man­u­fac­ture of the tri­pod are pleas­ant to the touch. The legs of the tri­pod are made of thick and hard plas­tic, so the tri­pod will def­i­nite­ly with­stand the declared load of 2 kilo­grams.

The legs are equipped with anti-slip rub­ber inserts, they do their job well, but on some sur­faces they can leave black marks when mov­ing the tri­pod. I talk more about this in the video ver­sion of the review.


This tri­pod is equipped with two-stage fold­ing legs, to remove them you need to take the edge of the leg and pull it until it clicks. The legs are fixed after open­ing, and in order to assem­ble them back, you need to press a spe­cial but­ton with the inscrip­tion “push”.

As part of the func­tion­al­i­ty, I would also like to high­light the mech­a­nism of the legs, which is equipped with a kind of spring. The spring works in such a way that the legs move apart eas­i­ly, and in order to return them to their orig­i­nal posi­tion, you need to make a lit­tle effort. That is, this mech­a­nism pre­vents arbi­trary fold­ing of the legs of the tri­pod.

The top of the tri­pod has a stan­dard thread­ed con­nec­tion, as well as a rub­ber insert that pro­tects equip­ment mount­ed on a tri­pod from scratch­es.


The tri­pod has a diam­e­ter of 30mm and a slight­ly longer length of 120mm. At the same time, in the work­ing posi­tion with the legs extend­ed, its height is 105 mil­lime­ters, and with the legs fold­ed 70 mm. It is also worth not­ing that the weight of the prod­uct is only 90 grams. Such dimen­sions, in my opin­ion, make it easy to car­ry a tri­pod with you in almost any pock­et and use it when nec­es­sary.

Scope of application

In my opin­ion, this tri­pod can be used for a vari­ety of tasks, it can be used as a tri­pod for a smart­phone, or an action cam­era, and the prod­uct can also be used as a sta­bi­liz­er han­dle for more com­fort­able shoot­ing. I use this tri­pod to set up aux­il­iary light­ing.

If you are inter­est­ed in the RGB lamp in the pho­to above, I will leave a link to its full review in my blog on the site.

In my opin­ion, this is an excel­lent mod­el of an inex­pen­sive, but durable and high-qual­i­ty tri­pod. The man­u­fac­tur­er made a wor­thy prod­uct for their mon­ey. A tri­pod is per­fect for tak­ing pho­tos or videos from a smart­phone, it is also con­ve­nient to use it to set up light­ing and / or a micro­phone. The only neg­a­tive is that the rub­ber pads on the legs can leave black marks on the sur­face used. Well, that’s all, I hope the post was use­ful to you.
