This review is from: Hama Star 63 Tripod with Carry Case (Camera)
I have to say, for the price I think the tripod is pretty much awesome value for money. I was surprised to find that it really is a stable peice of kit, with balled rubber legs to get firm grip, and thick sturdy legs to keep your camera sturdy. There are two spirits levels, one to adjust the horizontal and the other the vertical. This is the kind of tripod that can take its knocks, it's really nicely built and has thick knobs to tighten those moveable joints. The movements of the levers seem smooth. My brother spent about the same amount of money on a tripod about a year ago and it is no where as near as good as this one.
In any case, the sturdiness and reliability of it has its drawbacks. It is a little bit larger than other tripods when folded up. But after saying so the tripod comes with a black carry bag and IS light. I had to carry this with my camera gear for about 2 miles with relative ease.
Beware. The tripod amazon sent me was not in brand new condition and had been already used. It functions fine but still...
