4 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Solid construction. Holds the camera where you lock it. I'm using a 5dMarkII and even if I have to put a flash on it, the ball head is able to hold it in place. Folds up to be very small and portable.

Cons: Opening the legs to their lock point doesn't make it perfectly level. It's not a big deal because it's easy to adjust, and it is afterall a ball head.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend it.
