Nice and portable camera tripod that works as expected. The advantage, as I see it, is that the stand can be folded very good with no protruding parts. There is also a rubberized "handles" on one rod that allows one to carry it in your hand comfortably when you have folded it together.
Plus also because it comes with a small bag for the stand which allows one to take it over the shoulder smoothly and comfortably. The bag has a shoulder strap with a gummed portion of the tape that prevents it from sliding around the shaft.
Overall it's a nice tripod if you either want to have a complete package that beginners (ball head and the disk is included which works very well), or if you need a portable stand that can fold up without worries.
Two negative things that make it not received the highest rating:
- Ballheaden is sometimes a bit in the way when to fold up the stand, and you can rotate the "right" to all the bars are to be folded a maximum and not protrude more than necessary. It's no big deal, but still annoying if you are in a hurry and actually should have downloaded the stand in the bag.
- A bit expensive for an aluminum tripod, although I like that it is a complete package with everything you need. Really like the frame, but there are more affordable options.
