Lightweight, easy assembly
Camera plate assembly is not secure enough (especially for dslr.
Hmmmm, I guess you get what you pay for. The Hama Star 61 tripod looks good enough, is easy to use with quick release legs and camera mounting. Reasonably stable when erected.
Main gripe is the camera mounting assembly the plastic plate is not at all secure when in place - too much movement. Not really suitable for dslr.
Would be a good entry tripod for a digital compact though.
