4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, 23 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Velbon DF-61 Heavy Duty Aluminium Photo/Video Tripod (Accessory)
I was dubious about this at the price but the Amazon reviews seemed genuine and Velbon do seem to have some good write ups in other forums.

No, it is not pro quality. But for this price you can;t expect that. It is a lot better than one I bought for same price years ago for stills work. I needed something new for video work and this about fits the bill. You can get extra shoes for quick changes if you have more than one body/camera. And these can be used on other Velbon tripods if you decide to upgrade.

More than adequate for still camera. Just about good enough for a video. Controls are easy and smooth in operation, a must for video. May 'degrade' over time - time will tell. Build quality seems good and it is robust.

I'm happy with the product. I perhaps would have been advised to go for something more expensive and probably will do now I know they are good value for money. I give it 4 stars only because I don't want people to think it will solve all their (photographic) problems, but if you're on a budget this may be for you, especially if you want something robust that is still not excessively heavy.

Oh, and the packing is not over the top.
