Excerpt: It's the only tripod I've ever had but I'm thoroughly pleased. I guessed that the very inexpensive tripods would be less awesome. I don't know but my Canon 3ti sits very securely. The clamps for the telescoping legs seem appropriately engineered, not too flimsy, not overkill. Rubber feet are great.
Summary: A sturdy tripod that's used for a camcorder and a DSLR camera. The legs are easy to adjust and lock into place quite nicely. I like that the shoe has a bit of foam padding to keep my devices scratch free. A bit pricey but worth the investment. I can see this tripod lasting for years
Excerpt: I use the tripod to anchor medium range (up to 300 mm.)telephotos and landscape lenses. It is an improvement over it's Velbon predecessor. It is more solid and works well. Leg locks have been improved.
Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: I rounded up because I couldn't give it 3.5 stars.It's a pretty decent tripod for still shots that I managed to get at a rather good price. It's just a very standard tripod, without the bells and whistles and snakey, bendy, swivel action of more advanced and expensive models.

Only slight gripes would be the legs can be quite annoying if moving the tripod around alot as they don't all tend to stay fully spread and the lock mechanism for the base plate can be a bit fiddly sometimes, especially if using a smaller...
Pros: Good Footing, Good value, Lightweight, Smooth Movement
