Summary: I got this tripod as a gift with my DSLR, together with a KATA bag. The tripod is good if it's free, as it's lightweight, of compact size and quite sturdy.The problem is that its head is not detatchable, so you end up with a tripod useful only for basic things. It's not worth its money, as there are way better choices at that price, with stronger legs and detatchable heads so you can upgrade later if you happen to need more features from your tripod.I knew what I was...
Pros: Compact, Durable, Lightweight
Cons: Inadequate Features, Non Detachable Head, Non Panning Head
Summary: This was a 'Wex Photographic' Freebie with the Canon G1X The tripod is a joy to use.I wish it had a 'quick erases plate' or even the ability to exchange the Tripod head for a better one, but I don't believe this is possible.That said it is a steady tripod.I like it.
