Needed to replace my existing tripod with something that was more adaptable to photo taking for on line sales. This tripod not only provided the easily adaptability to go from tabletop to floor stand but the handle that provides 360 degree rotation is what makes this so marvelous to work with. I take 8-10 photos of a single item and need to move quickly through the process. This rotation agility makes photo taking a speedy one. Now the coolest thing that came with this tripod was the blue tooth remote (iphone and Android use) to take the photo. This lets you get in the picture with no timer limitation before phone takes the image. Overall this is a great, lightweight and easy to set up or break down tripod and it stores neatly in the carrying pouch. Comes in a variety of colors and I am head over teakettle mad for the brilliant electric blue color. I have already had people stop and ask me about my tripod just because of the color and this conversation then opens to my business.
