This is the 2nd of this model I've bought for our company. Used mostly for video, it is great for static scenes where you don't need to move the camera around. The pan & tilt motions can be a little sticky. But, once the camera is moving, the motion is fairly smooth. It is light enough that if I need to follow my subject, I often extend just one leg and use it like a monopod. The finish of this one is more of a matte finish than the 1st one we bought. That causes a little more drag when adjusting the support up and down the center post and when extending the legs. With a little use and wear, perhaps that will get smoother. If you want to use multiple cameras with this tripod, buying an extra quick-attach baseplate for each camera eliminates the hassle of removing the plate from one to put on another. For the price, this is a great general-use tripod. If you are shooting video and and need professional-looking results, you would be better off spending more for a tripod with a really nice fluid head for smoother camera motion.
