  • Cheaply made, but it is good for the price.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    It is a great price for a small tripod.
    It is light and can be carried easily.
    It has a liquid leveler, so you know when it is even.
    The tripod maneuvers great and can be adjustable.

    Cons:

    It is light, so it should not be used outside for fear of tipping over and damaging your camera.
    It might be too weak to support a slr.
    It looks cheaply made.
    When the legs fully spread, there is nothing to keep them in place so it needs to be on a stable surface or the legs will come together.
    You can smell the plastic smell coming off it.

    OtherThoughts:

    I only need a small tripod for filming indoors so I don't need to worry about wind and I'm using a very small camcorder so I don't have a heavy camera. So this is perfect for me as I didn't want to spend a lot of money.

    Bottomline:

    If you're looking for a beginner or simple tripod, this is a great one to get.
