I've used it a couple of times so far. It's good for basic photography. It is very light and flimsy. It wouldn't be useful if shooting in windy conditions and it's too flimsy to hold large lenses. It would probably fall over. Though it does have a weight hook so you can add a sand bag to keep it steady. I've mostly used it for fireworks and have noticed a little bit of movement in the photos. I've added a photo to show my results with fireworks.
