Not a perfect fluid head but it beats many of the other tripods of similar price. It has a small hook on the main shaft for a counter weight. It sets up and takes down rather quick and is stable for a full size DSLR. I would consider buying another for my backup camera or an external flash stand. Great for a first tripod or an inexpensive backup. It's not a top dollar tripod but your not paying for a top dollar unit either. I would definetely recommend it to all beginners and experienced photographers, and as a backup for the professional.
