I like this tripod, the Velbon EX-230. It's extra light, short enough to fit in my backpack, and inexpensive. It can handle my 450g Canon camera with a 450g flash on top of it. (I use a heavy external flash.) This is a 2-way (2-axis) tripod; if you loosen the handle, it tilts up and down along a horizontal axis. For rotation around the vertical axis, I don't use the middle knob, but the knob at the bottom, which is meant for the lift column. The tripod comes with a bag with a non-adjustable strap.

I use this tripod for cave photography in remote areas. Lightweight is essential, and it's cheap enough so I don't have to worry about wear and tear. On my previous tripod, the rubber feet came off while dragging it along a low passage in a cave, but this one has a bag to protect it. A carbon fiber tripod would cost at least five times more, and these usually come with heavier heads for loads heavier than I need. On the Velbon EX-230, you cannot take off the head, which is an extra weight saver.

Obviously, anyone taller than 4 feet has to bend or kneel, but I wanted an ultralight, compact, simple, inexpensive tripod. And that's what it is.

Update 6/2018: Zippers on the bag came apart, which is too bad, because it was a good bag. Trying to repair them made it only worse, so now it's just me and the tripod.

Consigues muy buena altura cuando lo pones al máximo, por contra la estabilidad en la altura máxima no es tan buena.
Se echa de menos un adaptador para quitar y poner rápidamente la cámara.
Por lo demás muy contento con el producto.

Tengo el modelo más pequeño después que este. Y el plástico parece de mejor calidad. Pero es un buen articulo y economico. Muy recomendable.

I love this Tripod. Works well for my needs. Affordable and sturdy.

beaucoup trop de plastique .... il est léger ... pratique ... mais il ne vas pas durer longtemps

Para mí me es suficiente, aunque se ve sencillo y ligero está muy bien... por este precio no hay nada mejor.
