I will use this product everywhere I go. It will be used for travel and taking pictures around my home.
I really liked the design of the tripod but I found it to be too complicated to set up in a hurry. I bought this for a travel tripod and because it folds up soo small there were too many leg sections to have to tighten down. I realize that I really prefer flip lock legs for ease of use and reduced set up time. It did seem pretty sturdy though...so if you like twist lock legs you may like this tripod. I returned it and bought Benro BEA1580F Classic A1580F 4-Section Aluminum Tripod and Manfrotto 496RC2 Compact Ball Head which I love.
I needed a tripod for a photography class as I loaned my old one out so I decided to order one that might travel smaller. So far I really like the weight and size of this tripod. If I were to do anything different I would get a double action tripod head.
Construction is very good, especially considering the cost. When traveling all of it's features are much appreciated.
