5.0 out of 5 stars 3 features of a good tripod (pardon the pun), 14 Nov 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Hama Star 61 Tripod (Accessory)
I boughts this beauty about a week ago, and was it worth it!
My camera has this annoying feature which is that it slows down the shutter speed when you turn the flash off, resulting in blurry pictures for my unsteady hands. So 13 lighter, and it atrrived.
1.) a good tripod is sturdy. My friend bought a much more expensive tripod (35up) and this is probably as good if not better on the sturdy factor.
2.) panning ability. This really only applies for camcorders, but many a cheap tripod will pan in a jerky and annoyoing manner. This one does not do this, and as a result gives a much smoother picture. Better than ones thrice its price!
3.) Portability. How amusing to see a tourist with a shining petite camcorder smaller than their hand perch it onto a bulky brute of a tripod thats twice their hight and probably weighs as much as them. This tripod is ultra portable when folded, yet is big enough to be useful. It comes with a sturdy carry case, and it has a very solid handle on the actual body of it.
Initially, I thought I was going to be dissappointed as I was getting the cheapest hama did. Unless you are a.) a professional basket ball player that is 7 foot something and want to shoot at eye level or b.) intend to use it as a stepladder (it holds up to 3.0 KG, bearing in mind the heaviest Digital8 camcorder on the market is just over a kilo) the hama star 61 is a great bit of kit.
Look out George Lucas!!!
