Not bad. Good light tripod. My first tripod – Portable Retractable Tripod for SLR/Digital Camera (150CM-Full Length) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Light
Lots of features
quick release hotshoe
quick release legs
Cons:
Easy to break if you aren't careful
Not stable for >3 pounds
Will wobble in breezes
Other:
My first tripod. I had it for a month with my 7d and 15-55 lens for fun. Great. My mom liked it, borrowed it and broke it on her first trip (she overpacks her suitcases).
It was fine for mw, but it will break if you sit on it.
Very convenient and lots of features including a built in level.
Bottomline:
I'd buy it again if I need a light tripod.
But I'll buy a more expensive one next time because I feel if i double the weight (and price) it will be more stable. Tripods are pretty easy to carry anyways.
