I purchased this tripod for my SLR and Camcorder. It's pretty standard, and works as you would expect. It's heavier, which is good. It comes with a nylon case, which is a bonus. It's range of motion is good. Don't expect fluid head performance, it's all made of plastic, but in this price range, it is of better quality. I really like the feet on this tripod, they are sturdy, and will work well indoors, or outdoors. My only real complaint is the tripod leg spread is a tad narrow. I wish it had adjustments for that. Overall, this is a pretty good tripod for under $50. It's way better than what you would purchase at a big box store, and it looks pretty good with that orange finish.
