Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Keep Your Feet Firmly on the Ground

Become snap happy with this versatile and ultra portable Star 61 tripod from Hama. Suitable for both video and camera shooting, its aluminium legs with rubber grip allows it to maintain a sturdy grip on the ground whilst you create professional and high quality images. There is also an additional hook for weighing it down in strong winds to ensure it remains in place.

The centre column height can continuously be adjusted (max of 158cm) with ease by using a simple crank, and then locked into place in order to achieve the perfect camera height. This combined with the smooth panning 3-way tripod head means that images and film can be captured from a variety of different angles in order to achieve the best perspective.

Smooth panning of the tripod head also helps prevent jerky videos and allows the creation of a smooth and professional film. A great piece of kit for the money, and it even comes with its own carrying case which it folds neatly into so that it can easily and safely be transported around wherever you go and there will never be a moment in which you are unable to capture that special image.

5.0 out of 5 stars My first tripod 13 July 2006
Given the price, this little bit of kit has easily surpassed my low expectations.

Whilst I wouldnt describe the build as rugged it is well constructed (albeit plastic componentry with aluminium legs) and peforms superbly with my Canon 350D.

I'd highly recommend this for any enthusiastic amateur on a budget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality and value 27 May 2005
This tripod offers all the features an amateur could
want. It's far more rugged than the Amazon picture suggests
but it is also lightweight and portable. In three words...
ridiculously good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be put off by the price 5 May 2004
Verified Purchase
I got this tripod to go with a new digital camera that I got at christmas. I bought it with the intention that it was cheap enough that if I found it useful I would buy a better one, but having used it, why bother with a more expensive one? The only problem I had with it was that there wasn't any instructions with it (yes, I know you're saying it's just a tripod, how complicated can it be?) but it does have quite a few features that aren't immediately obvious to the new photographer. The camera mount can be removed with a lever to aid screwing it to the camera body. It has a couple of spirit levels built in and the camera can be rotated and locked in every direction (it even has the option of locking the camera in the portrait position rather than the usual landscape format). It also comes with its own black canvas carrying case(bag). A fantastic piece of kit for the money, especially for those starting out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid piece of kit 10 Oct 2004
Verified Purchase
I've been using this tripod with a digital camera for a few days inside and out the house.
It is very light to carry and the very useful carrying case has an adjustable strap and the zip is really smooth and easy to open and close - that might sound funny but some covers for things have "crappy" zips that get stuck or snap off if you're in a hurry. The zip is also good for those with large fumbly fingers like mine! The case is of good quality and has a "rough" matt black textured surface that does not feel - or look - like plastic. Looks and feels professional.
The tripod itself is easy to setup, and although mine came without instructions you just have to try the knobs and things to see what they do. I can fix a computer hardware/software easily but this took me ages to suss!! But that's me and my fingers...
The top of the tripod has a quick-release camera mount base -again it took me ages to work out that to mount the camera, I have to release the catch and LIFT the small base off and THEN keyscrew that (keyscrew hidden under base)to the camera and THEN re-sit the quick-release base. After 3 practices it takes 3-4 seconds to use. Great idea!
This quick release is a BLESSING because it saves you having to screw/unscrew the camera everytime you want to use it without the tripod. The base is also small enough to leave on the camera as I slip the camera into my pocket.
A very stable (I suppose everything on three legs is) and solid tripod with a great quick-release and secure mounting gizmo.
I recommend this tripod AND the case without hesitation or reservation.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 features of a good tripod (pardon the pun) 14 Nov 2004
By A Customer
I boughts this beauty about a week ago, and was it worth it!
My camera has this annoying feature which is that it slows down the shutter speed when you turn the flash off, resulting in blurry pictures for my unsteady hands. So £13 lighter, and it atrrived.
1.) a good tripod is sturdy. My friend bought a much more expensive tripod (£35up) and this is probably as good if not better on the sturdy factor.
2.) panning ability. This really only applies for camcorders, but many a cheap tripod will pan in a jerky and annoyoing manner. This one does not do this, and as a result gives a much smoother picture. Better than ones thrice its price!
3.) Portability. How amusing to see a tourist with a shining petite camcorder smaller than their hand perch it onto a bulky brute of a tripod thats twice their hight and probably weighs as much as them. This tripod is ultra portable when folded, yet is big enough to be useful. It comes with a sturdy carry case, and it has a very solid handle on the actual body of it.
Initially, I thought I was going to be dissappointed as I was getting the cheapest hama did. Unless you are a.) a professional basket ball player that is 7 foot something and want to shoot at eye level or b.) intend to use it as a stepladder (it holds up to 3.0 KG, bearing in mind the heaviest Digital8 camcorder on the market is just over a kilo) the hama star 61 is a great bit of kit.
Look out George Lucas!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value all I need 11 Jan 2006
By A Customer

The low price does make you wonder if the quality of the unit is going to be ok - but I am delighted with the Star 61 tripod. I am using it with my Nikon D50 digital SLR for close ups, zooms and landscapes although I think I may invest in a remote control to avoid touching the camera at all!! The tripod even has a hook for weighing it down in winds.
I noticed another reviewer saying it doesn't pan smoothly for camcorders - it does - you use the top joint not the middle joint which is only meant to secure the ratchet.
Buy one!
