This, along with a memory card was my 1st flipkart purchase and i was stunned by the packing quality. it took me several mins to unpack, such good is the packin. And the tripod is a very good one. Though it is alittle short for me, and if u keep the camera parallel to the base, u will feel that its tilted to one side. But if its kept perpendicular to d base, its fine.
I really didn't know much about tripods when I got this for the first time. It works alright. But I wish it was a little heavier and a little taller. You can get better tripods now for the same price, so don't be stupid. This was back in 2010 I think. Don't buy this now. Get something else.
