Even though it's mostly plastic, build and paint quality are good. Seems sturdy enough to support most compact digital and film cameras (though I wouldn't trust it to hold heavier SLR cameras).
The rubber used for the leg tips is way too soft, which increases the chance of camera shake when pressing the shutter (using a time delay on the shutter will cure this problem, provided your camera has this feature). The pin holding the three legs together seems pressed on (like a rivet), which means you probably won't be able to tighten it once it loosens--a nut-and-bolt type of arrangement (like the one used for the head) would've been better.
When folded with its head bent back, it should fit into most small camera bags (which is why I bought it).
Despite its wobbly feet, this is probably the best value in compact tripods out there.
