+ very sturdy
> the tripod is extremely sturdy. keeps a firm stance anywhere you put it. it has a very nice weight to help.
+ nice camera base lock
> the locking mechanism to keep the camera in place is sturdy and stiff to the point where it can be sometimes difficult to unlock it.
+ smooth panning movement
> panning for videos is very smooth with this tripod
+ comes with carrying bag
> although ...
- i purchased two of these and one of the bags could not be opened. the zipper was stuck and would not move (to the point where i broke the zipper handle off). the bag had to be cut open.
- no handle for video cameras
> the head that comes with this tripod is seemingly built strictly for photography. can still be used for video, though, rather than holding a handle you hold your camera body instead.
- i have a manfrotto that was purchased, brand new, at around the same price. this blows it out of the water.
- need an extremely sturdy and durable tripod for the price of a "cheap" name-brand? this is it.
