Cheaply made, but it is good for the price. – Value 3.5 feet Aluminum Tripod Reviews

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.
Other:
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.
