I got this tripod a few years ago as a gift and it's great! It is a very sturdy tripod. It comes with two quick releases to attach to the camera, both of which have a bubble level to help make the camera perfectly level. There is also a bubble level on the tripod itself to help ensure that the tripod is level with the ground. This is pretty helpful if trying to level it on some uneven ground.

The best feature in my opinion is that the tripod head will pivot in just about every direction making it easy to get the perfect angle on a subject. To get every direction, the camera on the quick release has to be turned around on the head of the tripod. You don't have to remove the camera from the quick release to turn it around like on some tripods I have used, which is nice. Each of these directions can also be easily locked in place or loosened for better mobility with just a twist of a nob. Each leg has two extensions and the tripod head can also be extended higher by turing a crank. Also, the feet of the tripod each have a rubber stop which can be twisted up to reveal a pointed tip depending on the surface the tripod is on.
