Summary: Pro's: * super light * fold very compact * easy to adjust & feels secure This tripod is even lighter than I thought it would be. It folds very compactly, smaller than my China Lonely Planet guidebook! I travel a lot and travel light, so this tripod will fit my needs fine. I've used it at home a lot and like that I can set it up on a bed, table, chair, or anything else without needing floor space.
Summary: I needed a small tripod for my Nikon D40 and it seems that all of the "table" ones that I tried were better suited for light, compact, pocket digital cameras. Not this one. It can handle my D40 without any problem. The movement is smooth and controls are firm with positive feedback. I like it a lot!
