Pros: lightweight
Cons: poor build quality

I bought this tripod for a holiday to New Zealand after reading reviews on the net. After only a few days one of the legs broke off and for the rest of the trip I had to be very careful while using it.


The build quality of this tripod is poor and I havent contacted the store I bought this tripod from yet but it is under a two year waranty.
