    I needed a tripod for a location shoot. I was looking for something inexpensive and lightweight. This little guy looked too good to be true but I went for it.
    There was no note as to the weight capacity and that is what I was most worried about.
    The tripod has pros and cons.
    Pros-folds up tiny and comes with a carrying case. It is lightweight and extends to 7 feet.
    Cons-Not incredibly durable looking. I think I will have to use it carefully if I want it to last.
    For reference - I did use this tripod with a MKII with 24-70 lens. I was nervous about the weight but it held up just fine.

    The worst

    This is the worst tripod I have ever purchased. Within a month of purchase, it has become pretty much unusable. Fell apart in multiple places.

            one rubber leg came off, but that is a easy fix with any 10 sec. glue. I am tall guy 6.4ft - with that tripod I do not need to bend anymore :) but this comes at the cost of weight though.

                I bought this tripod because I needed a taller tripod on a budget for my photography hobby. This fit the bill. I used it in fairly high winds and it remained stable. The only gripe is that I had a hard time getting the head to stay level--could just be a learning curve, though. Overall, I would recommend it to someone like myself.

                        Seems very sturdy. Great price for the size of the tripod. Legs are just slightly stiff but will probably loosen up with use.

                          I purchased this for its hight. I used a 5 pound camera on it with no problem which was my camera 2 and was stable for a shot over a group of people in a seminar. If you are looking for a tall, stable, tripod under a hundred dollars this will work fine. I like that it is portable and light and fit in my tripod bag with a couple of light stands too.
