This review is from: Hama Star 63 Tripod with Carry Case (Accessory)
This tripod beats hands down all available at high street retailers - I went around most of them (comet, argos, jessops etc). The two main detractions are the tripod head is very plasticy in construction - but it is solid, the other complaint being the 3D head is not the smoothest mover - so I wouldnt recommend it for video.
Having said all that this tripod is great for stills work, the hight really is a massive 65"(166cm) I'm 6ft and its just above eye level with the camera on. The legs are quick, easy and smoothness itself to deploy as is the quick release plate and you get a really handy bag to carry it in.
