This review is from: Hama Star 63 Tripod with Carry Case (Accessory)
I ordered this tripod for my Sony Alpha A500 DSLR and I love it. I was not expecting the quality that it is, especially considering the amazingly low price! There is a bubble level on the main frame and then a spirit level on the head of the tripod. It has a handy weight hook at the bottom if you want to increase stability, although this would probably only be required if on a very uneven terrain with high winds. There are moveable rubber feet to enable all surface use. The geared centre column is a great feature and is of a high quality. The only negative is the leg locking mechanism which you have to be very careful of as they do seem a bit stiff. I read several reviews before purchasing and some mentioned the 'jerky' panning on the tripod. I have not found this to be the case, all it needs is to loosen the locking screw on the top of the head. For the money this is a brilliant buy and would highly recommend. In shops such as jessops/currys I would expect to pay well over £60 for an item of similar spec and quality.
