Pros: Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: I use this product for photo and video use. Great for quick set-up and tear-down. I am happy with everything except the center ball doesn't tighten very tight. Sometimes I may put a little more weight on it then is specified, but I wish it was easier to tighten down.

Excerpt: Just recently purchased this tripod for deer hunting and it is flawless. Its very light compared to others, works like a charm. only downfall i can see is the metallic cover, which i could see as being flashy in the woods, but this should be over looked.
Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: I use the tripod for both my camera and my video. I purchased it because the my Sunpak 7500 kept falling apart. I got a replacement from the company and it fell apart the first time I used it. My Manfrotto feels very solid.
