    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    The tripod quality is quite nice, it is well build, cheap and lightweight. You can take it with you anywhere, it has only 35cm when all legs are lowered. Operation and usage is simple and fast. Carrying pouch included in the package.

    Cons:

    It is too light to use with some large cameras, I don't think it can support anything too heavy. I used it with my compact sony cybershot which worked well, but I don't recommend it to use with SLR/professional cameras.

    When using outside in bad weather the tripod may fall down due to its low weight, so make sure you are near it when shooting outside.

    Although it is pretty solid, when you shoot or press buttons on camera, the tripod slightly moves, to prevent taking blurry image, shoot with self-timer, it takes a while for tripod to get into balanced position.

    OtherThoughts:

    The star connecting legs could be more solid.

    Bottomline:

    I recommend it for amateur and compact photography, however not for fully professional photographers.
