5.0 out of 5 stars Solid piece of kit, 10 Oct 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hama Star 61 Tripod (Accessory)
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.
