Hama 3way tripod head with quick release plate With crank for continuously variable height adjustment of centre column Closed length 60cm Fully extended length 153cm 00004161 Tripods Accessories
Keep Your Feet Firmly on the Ground
Become snap happy with this versatile and ultra portable Star 61 tripod from Hama. Suitable for both video and camera shooting, its aluminium legs with rubber grip allows it to maintain a sturdy grip on the ground whilst you create professional and high quality images. There is also an additional hook for weighing it down in strong winds to ensure it remains in place.
The centre column height can continuously be adjusted (max of 158cm) with ease by using a simple crank, and then locked into place in order to achieve the perfect camera height. This combined with the smooth panning 3-way tripod head means that images and film can be captured from a variety of different angles in order to achieve the best perspective.
Smooth panning of the tripod head also helps prevent jerky videos and allows the creation of a smooth and professional film. A great piece of kit for the money, and it even comes with its own carrying case which it folds neatly into so that it can easily and safely be transported around wherever you go and there will never be a moment in which you are unable to capture that special image.See all Product description

Hama (UK) Ltd
For serious photographers a good, sturdy tripod is a must have for certain photos, preventing camera movement to minimise blurring and creating a sharp, high-quality photo. This makes them ideal to use for capturing self-portraits or group shots, where there is no one to hold the camera, as well as for slow-speed exposures or when capturing wildlife and other scenes where details need to be crisp and clear.

I'll cut to the chase.
5/5, and here's why:
When you need to get a tripod up in a short space of time, attach something to it, and then be secure in the knowledge it wont drop your beloved piece of gadgetry, you need one thing: GOOD DESIGN!!
This is easily the best design I've come across. It lacks all those ridiculous knobs and screws and instead opts for a snap-and-go adjustment system which is so much easier to use. My binoculars weigh in at 2 kilos and this tripod not only carried them perfectly but I never worried about anything breaking off. The central column is held by another twist-lock mechanism for added security.
I read someone on here saying they'd broken off the main base "easily" and I can only say that you'd have to be a complete idiot to "easily" break this piece of equipment.
I've no criticims of this tripod at all. My only tip is that you should apply some good thick mechanical lubricant to the top mechanism if you want smooth motion when turning the base...but that's just me being fussy.
It's light, affordable, nice to look at, perfectly designed, and sets up in seconds.
Can't go wrong.
At slightly over 64 cm long and 1526 grams when packed up in its case, this is quite a package to carry around.
When set to its minimum height, the head plate is about 61 cm off the ground. When everything has been fully extended, the height of the head plate is about 158 cm off the ground.
What I like about it:
+ Spirit level built into upper leg brace
+ Spirit level built into the head platform
+ Side carry handle (handy if you have small hands)
+ Crank handle to elevate central column
+ Central brace hook (to hang a stabilization bag on)
What I don't like about it:
- Cheap and fragile feel of product
- Head plate uses a flip over key style of screw to attach the camera (see my picture)
- Bottom feet use a ball and socket type of adjustment (see my picture)
On paper this Hama should be good, it offers a lot of handy features only found on more expensive tripods. However in use the item feels cheap and fragile. The head plate uses a flip over key style of screw to attach the camera which I find fiddly (a thumb wheel would have been so much better). The use of a ball and socket type of adjustment for the bottom feet doesn't work all that well and the tripod seems to be upset easily, so I think the use of the central brace hook to hang a stabilization bag is required in most situations.
Fast forward over two years and this is still the main tripod that I use. It is relatively light, I do a lot of hiking and climbing, so weight is an important factor to me. I do not want to have to carry around a 5kg tripod whilst already carrying a 20kg rucksack. At just over 1kg this tripod is great for travel.
Despite the low cost and low weight of the product, it is remarkably durable and versatile. I have used the tripod at the top of mountains, and so far have had no issues whatsoever with wind. Occasionally I have had to hang a weight from the hook at the bottom to keep it upright, but of course, that is why it is there. The tripod extends to pretty much any height you could ever need (from about a foot from the ground to almost head height).
It is very easy to attach your camera to this tripod. I use it with my Canon EOS 1100D and have had no issues in this regard. It is also very easy to rotate the camera - whilst attached to the tripod - from portrait to landscape and vice versa. Tilting the camera up and down or from side to side is also easily achieved and can then be secured in place once you are happy with the set up. The tripod even comes with a couple of small built in spirit levels, if having the camera level is a concern.
I would highly recommend this camera to any beginner who does not wish to spend a lot of money. Do not let the great price fool you, though. This would be a great tripod for anyone.
