  • Good value

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

    Pros:

    - Relatively lightweight
    - locking mechanism for the legs is easy to operate
    - good height (I'm 5'11 and the camera viewfinder is almost at eye level when the tripod is fully extended)
    - hook for extra weight
    - quite inexpensive for a ball head tripod.

    Cons:

    - not sure about the longevity of the 'twist to lock/unlock' mechanism on the individual tripod leg sections.
    - build quality is slightly below average

    OtherThoughts:

    Overall I would say this is good value for money. Hoping that it would have been a bit lighter, but this is definitely not a dealbreaker. Would have been nice to have the level on the ballhead mount rather than on the body.

    Bottomline:

    Given the price, I dont see how you could go wrong. Have not done a trip with this tripod yet, so cannot comment on how easy it is to travel with.
