Not bad, but can't expect too much
on 25 March 2016
Purchased this tripod for a friend, and although i was not expecting much in terms of quality humm!!! Cant give more than 3 stars even having in mind the price.
While the tripod is closed it is quite steady and can be used with small cameras or phones. I would not advise using a dSLR or even a Bridge camera with this. For my friend will be fine as he will be using it with his phone.
Once we open the tripod the legs feel really flimsy, and even using with a phone it will not be steady. I mean if you are in doors and don't touch the tripod all is fine, but if we are outside in a windy day the tripod will move a lot and also by a minor touch to the tripod it will move a lot.
Also the head where we mount the camera is fragile, with heavier cameras such as bridges will not stay levelled, will bend a lot so we will have to balance it to the other side so when we put the camera the plastic bends and stays levelled (hope i could explain this part :)
So in conclusion, if you want to use it in the closed position and with light cameras indoor or in excellent weather condition it will do fine otherwise i would not go for it.
Also to mention that its very compact so its nice to carry around, and comes with a bag which was a nice touch.
