When I first saw this tripod I thought It'd be a great solution for long exposure night photography in the city that I work on. Nothing too complex or requiring any extra durability or extreme weather condition usage.

Upon first night of using this I loved it and the ability to adjust height with not only the adjustable locking latches (3 on each leg), but also the crankarm for additional height. That first night I did experience that while carrying it in the travel bag it comes with, the zipper to the bag came off as well as the strap and was no longer able to use it. Wasn't too much of an issue because I could still carry the tripod in my hand. The bag seemed to be made of cheap material. No huge loss though.

After about two months of using the tripod (1-2 shoots/wk), one of the locking latches permanently slid out of place on one leg (these connect one height level to the next). This occurred on one leg and due to this I am unable to keep the tripod leg locked to a position. Example: if you have two legs locked in place, the third leg slips out and tripod is unable to be stood up properly. I am no longer able to use the tripod unless I want the lowest possible level next to the floor.

Overall, it looked like a good solution to simple photography work but was proved wrong. I'd recommend looking elsewhere and put a little more money into something of better quality. I just am thankful I didn't have my camera on the tripod when the latch permanently slipped out of place.

Invest in better quality tripod, your camera deserves it.
