This walk offers good value for money. It is lightweight, looks strong, and comes with a black nylon bag with a shoulder strap. It unfolds in height with 3 nested elements (so we can deploy it gradually as needed). The bad thing, the ball comes standard which is a large piece of aluminum impractical. I immediately replaced by a "Neewer 360 Black Pivot Ball Mini Ball Head To Support Tripod SLR Camera" much smaller and ergonomic! The set is now perfect!
