Best tripod I have ever owned. Holds my Nikon p1000 camera with no issues. Only thing to note is if you have a condition called renauds syndrome, it is important to where gloves. The aluminum gets really cold really quick in cold weather conditions. Over all the quality is excellent!!

fabulous value

This tripod is one that I will actually take with me. I have many tripods but unfortunately i don't drag them around with me. This is truly a travel tripod.

Excellent design, very easy to carry and to set up.

Not too heavy but sturdy enough for a Hasselblad with one of their monstrously heavy long lenses. And, best of all, it is light enough to easily carry on a field backpack. (Tried and true test on Highway 1, Big Sur, before the next winter rains come along and wash it out.)

for video ?

Yes it works with a (pan, tilt) video head. Compacting to a 18.5 package. Vary adjustable and stiff enough. see photo
