Cheap, small, light(2lbs 6.6oz, 2lbs 12.4oz with bag and allan wrench), travel bag included
Poor finishing touches; carbon fiber rough in spots, scratches to what I assumed was anodized aluminum... may be just paint, rubber grips on twist locks and knobs are poorly glued in place... not centered and wavy
Compared against every tripod in this size and weight class this is a three star tripod, but I'm giving it four stars because of price.
*Update: Why I now do not like this why.
It fell apart on my trip to Yellowstone! Literally fell apart! I wasn't expecting much from this tripod and I only used my D600 with the kit 24-85mm lens on it, but it couldn't even handle that. The rubber pads on the quick release plate came off. The pin holding the mount for the ball head fell out and the mount point spun freely. They cut every corner in the assembly process to make this tripod this cheap. All the glued surfaces are unmachined and will eventually become unglued.
I got this tripod because lugging around my big bogen was old, and getting older each time I used it. Its a joy to have and use, but its so heavy. I wanted something very small and light. I tried monopods, but they have limitations, primarily if you want to step back from the camera --for example to fix your subjects hair, clothing, or to move a piece of garbage or whatever in a scene. I use a light meter from time to time, can't do that with a monopod, but again, they are handy but have limitations.
Enter this. I couldn't justify a 500$ gitzo, i dont use it that much. But I was going to a wedding which required long air travel and no way was I going to lug my 12lb manfrotto around. I got this and was THRILLED.
Its tall enough===if I can get chest level on group shots--I'm happy. 52" is perfect.
Its good quality
Its compact===12" when packed up. Fits in my photo backpack (INSIDE!) or easily in the side strap/pocket designed for tripod.
It easily holds my Hefty 70d, battery grip, and 24-105 lens==expensive==, so I don't feel comfortable with "ANY" tripod, this-YES
its sturdy--I've never had an issue ---I've had it a month--but its been all over as checked baggage, or carried on, no problem.
I do recommend one thing. THIS:
Or some other keychain screwdriver. Then clip it to the tripod with some kind of cord, chain, or whatever. There are places you will /potentially need a screwdriver. Obviously you can put it in your bag or wherever but if you attach it to the tripod you will always have it. I got a zip tie and TIGHTLY ziptied a small keyring (1/2") to one of the upper legs. I clip /unclip this little screwdriver as needed and it takes about 1/2 second to retrieve or replace and its always there.
that is the one downer--is that the screws are not made to be operated by hand. Its a minor detail and you just have to be prepared then its nothing. The benefits of this tripod far outweigh that one oversight. Its easily overcome and every tripod has some issue of some kind anyway.
It weighs just 2 lbs (per my scale), and comes with a nice bag. The center can invert for very low shots, and the ball is 360 degrees.
Some reviewers have complained about the quality, "It doesn't have the quality feel of even an inexpensive manfrotto", and my reply is its not 250$ either. Its 1/3 the cost. but guess what? Its very good and does a good job. Sure---as I mentioned in the first part of my review---if you want--you can spend hundreds and get whatever you want, I just can't justify it for my situation. This however, works excellently and is priced exceptionally.
Its worth every cent.
