This little tripod is lightweight, yet is sturdy as they come. The legs lock solid so that I’m never worried about collapse or tipping over. Speaking of features: It has a built-in level bubble, quick release plate, foam grips, and weight hook. Everything on this tripod works so smoothly. That goes for the pan and tilt. Unlike some other tripods, this one glides in any direction, at any angle–until I lock it, of course. When I’m done, I pack it away in the rugged carry bag. The Mactrem tripod offers incredible value for its price. I highly recommend it.
