One of my local camera shops has that tripod in stock and I got to try it out, I have to say that it is anything but a toy. I wouldn't put a large format camera on it, but when that thing is setup it is quite steady. I own tripods that are far stronger than this one, but if you are looking for a tripod that you can set up fast, tear down fast, and is really small this is your choice. I wouldn't own it as a primary tripod, but if you are looking for something that is small and light for vacation, hiking, or even to keep in the car just in case this is nice.

Now I might just get one of these next time I am at that store.
