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.
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.
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.
If you're looking for a beginner or simple tripod, this is a great one to get.
