Product Description

Sharp, shake-free photography!

Tripods are used in photography to stabilise the camera in order to maximise sharpness and detail whilst eliminating camera shaking that can otherwise cause blurring. Tripods can be an integral part of any photographer’s photography equipment no matter what your level of skill, creating stunning, high-quality, professional looking images providing that the right one is chosen. The Traveller Pro from Hama will ensure excellent still shots, (self-) portraits or horizontal tilts and vertical pans with its 3D ball tilt head and rotating central column for macro photography.

With fully 3x extendable tripod legs, the Traveler Pro has a fully adjustable height capable of elevating your camera to a maximum of 163cm, along with expandable legs for optimum proximity to the ground so that you can position your camera to suit your situation in order to capture the exact image that you want. Then with the built-in spirit level you can be sure to achieve precise, level photos with ease, aided by the secure quick-action leg locks, central column brake and rubber feet that permit a reliable, firm, steady hold on a variety of different terrains.

Traveller by name and by nature, the light aluminium construction and included travel case makes transportation of the tripod easy and convenient so wherever you are in the world you are always prepared for that unexpected photo opportunity! Even mounting or changing cameras on the go is made super easy thanks to the quick-release plate with safety catch and “click function”. The Traveler Pro from Hama is a must for any keen photographer.

I don't do many reviews of stuff I've bought but I've got one of these and so has a friend at my camera club and - in complete contrast to the original reviewer - we've both been extremely pleased with them so I feel I need to do it justice.

I've used it with my Canon EOS450D with lenses up to 300mm length and my friend has used it with his Nikon D90, he even tried it with a hefty medium format camera and was very impressed that it was able to handle that combination steadily. I've used it indoors at camera club nights and outdoors on long walks its light weight made a huge difference compared to the other tripod I used to lug about. No more aching arms or shoulders !

I even used it on the streets of London at night without it getting in anyone's way, the quick release was really useful when doing this. The only problem I found was a vibration when exposed to a strong wind but I dropped the legs a bit and hung my camera bag from the hook, hey presto a 6-second exposure of the buildings near the Thames at night came out nice and sharp with the flow of the water appearing just as it should - I've uploaded a crop of that to the user pictures.

I really appreciate the ability to vary the angle of the legs because I often find myself in a confined space (at the side of a waterfall or on rocks at the seaside for example) where I can't get the legs of a standard tripod to spread wide enough to be stable. I used to have to lug a heavy "profesional" tripod around to do that before. There's a subtle feature I like too, the locking clamps for the legs have been arranged so that all clamps can be locked or unlocked from the closed leg position at the same time with just one hand, makes setting up and taking down the tripod loads quicker and easier !

At this price I can only give it full marks as its great value for money.

I just started out in photography with my Canon 550d + 18-135mm and I was looking for a tripod to buy. Like many beginners also posting on the photography forums, I wanted a decent good value tripod to play about with and take the occasional picture but every time someone asks this in the forums they are told that nothing below £100 is good value in a tripod.

I decided to just try some tripods out on my own. The first one I bought was the Hama Star 63 @ £15.62 from amazon. This was heavy and long and I am not sure how long the joints would have held up for although they seemed like pretty tough plastic. I returned this because of the size and weight.

I then purchased the Hama Compact Traveller Pro after seeing these reviews on youtube.

This tripod feels great. I am not going to give a full review as I think the videos above seem to cover it quite well.

I went into Jes**ps and Ja**bs (UK photography stores) to compare these tripods to a few Gitzos and Manfrottos they had on display and in my view I really don't see why those tripods are almost three times the price.

The Hama Compact Traveller Pro -
- The quality of the materials feels the same as the Gitzo (except the carbon fibre models which feel lighter and stronger). The legs and ball socket and knobs are all aluminium.
- The joints move in the same smooth way.
- The ball head moves smoothly and is also strong enough to hold my camera at any angle (I have no doubt this would hold my camera with a lens double the weight of mine, it's very strong), No movement at all. Pushing down on the tip of my lens to move the ball head I would be more worried about breaking the lens or the tripod mount hole in my camera.

Hama produce a range of budget accessories for photographers and video shooters. Their range of tripods are very popular as they are well built for the price and have all the basic functions expected of any tripod. The sort of features that appear on the Giottis and Manfrottos, which professionals insist upon, are often absent on budget equipment or the budget version is a pale reflection. This is where the Traveller Compact Pro is different.

Constructed from lightweight but robust materials the Traveller Compact Pro looks and feels like a very good piece of engineering. It is more compact than the budget tripods by some measure due to the additional leg section. The leg adjusters are robust and tight fitting. The telescopic leg sections slide out easily. The legs are fitted with retractable spikes and rubber feet at one end and alloy leg positioners at the other, designed to allow for a normal or splayed leg position. The QR Ball head is a high quality item suitable for loads up to 3 Kg (DSLR with Battery Grip & budget 300mm Zoom).

The removable central pillar is slid into position manually and has a detachable hooked section, which enables the pillar to be inverted allowing birds eye shots of close up subjects. This is one of the tripods best features as it opens up a world of possibilities when shooting macro. The replaceable steel hook is sturdy enough to hold a sizeable camera bag (tested to 5Kg), to produce a very sturdy platform, for all but gale force conditions. I wouldn't go any larger than a 5Kg bag when at full height, especially on a smooth or slippery surface as the thin lower leg sections may not take the weight. Reducing the leg length by a section would create a stronger leg and therefore heavier ballasts would be possible for extreme conditions.
