Nice quality, i added a rifle clamp to the ball head and it holds my 12 pound rifle no problem. Tripod gets super low when you change out the center pole to the stubby (included). Tripod legs will flex a little when they are fully spread, but have held up well so far. I would buy again if i had too. Cons: no spiked feet included, but some could be mounted if your handy
Great rifle tripod for the price!

Used this tripod for multiple different configurations, for crane, for just a camera, and for massive lights. Every time was happy with results. Only one comment. You should understand that this tripod is too light for heavy video-head + full-size camera, but it's great for photography. :)
Pretty durable and very light tripod.

It's probably hard to pack more value than this in a sub-100 USD. It's not the best thing money can buy, but it's high quality in general nevertheless. There's no play in moving parts anywhere, legs swing very smoothly with a nice drag. Ball head was surprisingly good, I actually prefer this one to 90 USD Manfrotto 496 RC2 for its smoothness even though this one doesn't have a separate friction control knob (you use lock knob to control friction). Even the bag is a nice one, padded and substantial. I won't complain if this bag is a paid option, I'd gladly pay 20 bucks or so.It's very compact and lightweight. It fits in a carry-on luggage with a big margin (see my first picture). It weighs about 3.5 lbs including the head but without the bag and accesorries (a short column, a screw, and an Allen key). Even if you include everything, the weight is about 4.5 lbs.You can invert it so the camera stays very low, probably I don't use that feature too often but it should be useful for close-up pictures of flowers etc. You can also unscrew the padded leg to use as a monopod (which causes some problem, I'll explain later).Caveat 1:The "maximum load capacity" of 12kg or 26.5 lbs seems to be a gross overestimate. I don't know how they define this number so I cannot say it's wrong, maybe they're just saying that this will not break under 12kg load, which I can believe. But I can definitely say that this tripod has much more flex and wobble under the same load than Manfrotto MK294C3 that is only rated at 11 lbs. My second picture shows Manfrotto and this one (and 12 inch ruler) side by side, you can see that Manfrotto is a 3-section tripod (and made of carbon), which is inherently sturdier than this.Just as a test, I put my 480mm telephoto setup that weighs 13 lbs on this one. Nothing slipped when locked down, but the flex/wobble under the load meant that it was very difficult to point the camera to where I wanted. That's OK, the point of 5-section tripod is to achieve compactness at the expense of the rigidity. But don't plan to use a heavy telephoto with this one.Caveat 2:There's a big friction for the twist-lock action for the thickest leg section. I'm talking about the rotational friction between two parts that work as a single twist-lock part. That wouldn't be a big deal except that one leg unscrews from the hub for monopod operation, and when untwisting the twist-lock for that specific leg, quite often the leg itself is unscrewed instead. I know, this won't happen when I grab the thickest section of the leg rather than the leg hub when untwisting, I might get used to it, but it shouldn't be this way in the first place.All in all, IF compactness and lightweight are the two most important qualities, this is worth your consideration. If money is not an issue for you, there probably are better products. Otherwise, you might be pleasantly surprised by this one.
Value-packed, nice, lightweight and compact. Load rating is inflated.

Generally a good tripod. However, the instruction to convert to a monopod are meaningless. Also, there are many plastic pieces and the weight is equally less than stated.Once you figure out how to convert to a monopod, you have to be cautious to not lose any pieces. It involves removing three small connecting pieces..Losing them will make it impossible to regain the tripod format. This could have been done better

Great buy. Affordable, durable, the height adjustment covers all the heights I need that traditional tripods can't (such as lower settings).

I bought this tripod for a painter box use instead of a camera. It seemed to be a great tripod and for camera likely is. Very lightweight, made well, great feel. But for my use the quick mount plate was stressed and broke. Despite being after the return period, the customer service was quick to reply and offered a full refund. Despite my problem, I wouldn't worry about the quality and I used it outside of it's purpose.

This serves the purpose, and is lighter than it looks.
