The Sony VCT-R100 Lightweight Tripod with 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head is a compact, lightweight tripod small enough to fit into a back pack. The VCT-R100 folds up to a short and incredibly manageable 14 inches and reaches a maximum height of 39 inches to give you a comfortable using position without requiring you to break your back bending in half.
The VCT-R100 has a 3-way pan/tilt head that makes it easy and convenient to point your camera where you need it without having to adjust the tripod itself, and ideal for steady shooting with a camcorder or digital still camera where you need to follow the action without moving yourself. This tripod is capable of supporting a little more than two pounds, and is constructed of durable black aluminum. The VCT-R100 weighs 1.8 pounds, has four leg stages, utilizes flip locks to lock its legs in place, and includes a center column and brace. This unit comes with a handy carrying case, a manufacturer's limited 1-year warranty on parts, and 90-day warranty on labor.

Comments about Sony VCT-R100 Lightweight Compact Tripod with 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head:
This is an overall good tripod for beginners and is great for traveling, if it were higher, it would suit my needs greatly! However, 40" is still an okej height to do some good filming and pictures!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Portable, Stable, no-fuss Clamps

Although it doesn't say it in the camera details, this tripod is compatible with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W530. Overall, this tripod is a must, though for portrait pictures, especially outdoors where the scenery is as much a part of the picture, I think the tripod needs an additional 12" of height. I bought this to replace an older tripod, which secures the legs with a cumbersome screw-clamp. I was very pleased to find that the legs on this tripod secure by a lever-like pressure-clamp instead; much easier to work. I also love that this tripod comes with a bag for storage, so it doesn't get dusty and dirty. The bag, however, is not as easy to work with, and though it can be worn/carried, it's not really designed for that.
