I needed a tripod that would be easy to get on a plane and this is perfect for that. My monfrotto isn't that great at getting level vertical Real Estate photos but the K&F Tc 2534 does this nicely. I do wish there were larger and more levels to be able to check orientation. The 1 level is in front, that would be under the lens. Not an easy or quick check. I can tell after just a couple uses this tripod is less sturdy than I'd like but I'm hoping for the best because the price was doable.
