Smart tripod up and down and sides can be adjusted so that you do not need to adjust the legs if the surface is uneven. A little enough to stand on a table and stable even at max. height. Best suited for the camera or, if behind the camera, to fine-tune objects and scenes that stand more or less at rest (landscape, portraits, etc.). It's fast knot to follow an object that moves both up and down and to the pages (then it's better to go for something alright Manfrotto Compact Action). The quick coupling works excellent and the stand comes in a handy bag. Only thing I miss is a vater for that price.
