A really nice little tripod, good for one that you want to carry around all day, and still have something sturdy enough that she won't shake whenever you touch it. I lke that this isn't made out of cheap aluminium, and she's pretty solid. handles my canon 40D with a 300mm zoom lens no prob.
build quality oveall is good, but mine has a problem where the angle lock on one of the legs is broken, but the tripod is still very usable.
The Head is annoying. a pain if you are trying to capture anything moving.
If you want to use this for Video, get yourself a different head. This tripod is a dead copy of a Manfrotto. so save on the tripod and spend on the head.
Overall, a really good buy, that i've never regretted. sure, one day, i'll buy a real manfrotto, but until then, this baby is fufilling most of my needs.
