As a student video journalist, I was on a tight budget when it came to looking for a tripod. I made the rookie mistake of ordering an unbranded cheap one before realising that I would need to spend a bit more in order to get a tripod suitable for filming.

I use this for filming with my DSLR. It holds the camera very well, I've used a Canon 5D with this tripod, which is a fairly heavy camera and this tripod holds it well. I love the smoothness of the pans and tilts, for the price, it's a great product.

Great value tripod, only downside is the plastic nature of the leg locks. Much sturdier than I expected and very smooth pan tilt action.
