I would like to categories my review by different factors. So if you have some knowledge about photography, you would understand the magic.1. Weight: Light weight. 3 and a half pound. This makes it portable at the same time reliable enough that your camera is safe.2. Length: Compact. You can see in the pictures how it fits well in such a small bag.3. Material: Although it's light weight, the material is impressively good in quality.4. Can be converted into monopod5. Rubber ends for firm contact with surface.6. Ball-head and all the levers make it easy to use. It has leveler so that you don't have to struggle much7. You can invert it to take nice bird-eye shots.
