I take it on long bike rides with my Nikon D90 and it works great. There are however a few things I would have liked to have seen on this tripod:
1. Detachable head.
2. Shorter body, but retaining maximum height. They could have done this by having shorter legs with 3 releases as opposed to 2.
3. Alternate way to lock the three legs other than the leg brace. The Leg brace doesn't allow the tripod to spread the legs so that the head reaches closer to the floor. This is imperative for low height reflection shots.
4. A shorter head panning handle (or even better, a knob handle), the handle is very long, making it difficult to look at the viewfinder of the camera. However, it can be removed once the head is positioned. I would give this tripod a 4.5/5 because of the points above, but I wouldn't remove a whole star. All in all, I still would recommend this tripod to a friend. However, for an extra $10 you might want to look at the Dolica Floor Standing Tripod, 62". If the 4 points above are deal breakers for you, then a professional $100 tripod (body only) and $50 head might be best.
