I use this for video mostly in a large area. It has many angles and this tripod has all the ways to adjust so that I can always have a "level" image when desired. It is a strong, heavy duty tripod without the weight.
Recently becoming interested in panorama photography, I quickly understood the importance of having the camera perfectly level, relative to the subject matter. With the adjustable "ball-socket" mounting on the center, height-adjustable center post of the tripod (and of course, the built-in bubble level), original angle or surface of your tripod location just no longer matters! In seconds, your tripod head is level and you're ready to go. . . . and that answered ALL MY NEEDS! I could not have asked for anything better and once again Adorama does it again!!! Thanks
