My camera is a bit too heavy for this one, which I knew it would be, but it be would good with a compact camera. It will work with my 1 lb camera and is great for holding steady, but I basically treat as part of my camera and lay the entire setup down when not in use or it will fall over. Works great for close ups at a lower angel.
The item is not of the best grade but for the price I cannot complain at all. Anyone purchasing this expecting a high grade item needs to really sit back a moment and think. As with anything and camera equipment more so, you get what you pay for. If you are looking for a cheap easy to use back up tripod with no frills. You will find what you want here at a great price. Looking for a high grade tripod with sturdy build materials and a fluid head mount? Spend more. For the price, this was great. Just know what you are paying for so you wont be disappointed.
SLIK 700DX has always been a photographer's favorite tripod. Bang for the buck at its price. However, be warned that it is pretty heavy so it's not the most portable tripod. This tripod, though, should last you a lifetime. The only upgrade you may want is a new head, though the stock one is sufficient.
