Summary: Its very heavy duty, and will support not just cameras, but video equipment. The first thing I noticed was the legs snap together when folded, keeping the package neat. That, along with its handle, make carrying it is a breeze. It also locks open when it is set up, so there is no accidental folding up. The 3-way panhead moves smoothly, with no jerking or noise. And its extra height is perfect for my 6'2" wife.
