The mini tripod is sturdy,great at panning and tilting, and reliable. My wife and I use the tripod for food photography on top of our dining room table. It is lightweight and easy to expand. The lifting rocker turns with ease, and quick release is easy to use. The handle is long enough to maneuver while taking videos. The foot pad is sturdy and doesn’t move much once placed in a flat surface. Overall, the mini tripod is an excellent tool for photography.
1. Make sure lock is secure
2. Make sure quick release is in place before moving
