Adjustable legs

Lightweight design

Camera compatibility

Quick release

The tripod was very easy to carry and travel with. The legs were also very easy to adjust to the desirable height without disturbing the camera or messing up the shot. This tripod proved to be compatible with a nice range of starter cameras. The quick-release feature makes it easy to change out cameras without the hassle of having to manually screw them on and off the tripod stand.




The tripod stood strong indoors, but when put to the test outside in the elements winds played a factor in the sturdiness and stability of the items. Best to use in sunny weather conditions with minimal wind.
