It'll do in a pinch, but get something better if you're going to really use it

It feels flimsy and unstable. And getting level is a bit of an exercise. You could do worse, but you can also do much better for a little more money via another store. But overall, it'll work if you're just pulling it out once or twice a year.
Do not buy if you have a heavier camera/telephoto le s

This was incredibly wobbly, the pan doesn't lock properly, and if you are using a heavier camera with a telephoto lens, that's a problem. Nearly, broke my camera because it refused to lock in place. I will definitely be returning this.

This piece of plastic trash broke on its first use. The brilliant engineers who designed this included brittle plastic teeth in the mechanism to raise and lower the head. They stripped out on the first attempt, therefore rendering the product useless. This is also not a Targus product, it is Merkury now.
Not bad for the money spent...it is a bit flimsy but our only intent is for use indoors so weather and wind will not be a factor and this will suit our purposes fine. For those who are more serious about their photography/videography they would definitely want something sturdier.
