5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best small tripods I've used., 9 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Hama Traveller Compact Pro Tripod (Camera)
As soon as I saw and felt this tripod, I knew it was good so bought one straight away. My dad wanted to keep it when I showed it to him, so I had to buy myself another, then my dads friend wanted one, so again I was left without one for a while. Everybody who has seen it wants one, and that in itself is testement to how good it is.

As expected it is small and lightweight and comes complete with a suitable carry bag. It is solidly built and comfortable to carry due to the padding on the upper legs. The head is a ball and socket type which allows for very flexible movement, and the single locking screw tightens it up very well. The quick release mechanism has been really well thought out with a small locking lever to ensure you do not accidentally release the plate.

The legs can be used normally, or by turning a simple device at the top of each leg can be spread much wider for very low angle, and extra stability. The central column can be split and half removed to accomodate that low angle, and can also be inverted so that the camera hangs below the legs.

I use it mainly indoors photographing models that I have made and painted, and for this purpose it is more practical than the larger, heavier tripods which don't always allow for such a low viewpoint. It is very good as a lightweight travel tripod, but I still prefer to use a much heavier duty one if I am shooting with long exposure times or in windy conditions, but that of course depends on the practicalities of taking a heavy or light tripod to a location. Where space and weight needs to be taken into account, this is perfect.
