It is okay for the price.
It has the ability to hold heavy cameras by tightening the adjustment screw which is the black thing on the side of the pod on the photo. This way you can position it properly on the ball head without it dropping.
It came as a surprise to me when the extending legs came out. I didn't know so that is a nice little feature.
I have dropped some stars off it because of the fact that the extending legs don't support it well, by this I mean that the extended leg sometimes goes in and could make the whole thing topple and potentially damage your camera.
I also dropped a star because the legs come in a chrome (Mirror) finished aluminium. When mine came, there were many scratches and scuffs on the legs, and I decided to use a sanding block to sand them and give them a brushed metal look, which looks better and I might paint them black.
Overall, it is fine for the price.
