Hama Star 75 Tripod
Camera shake can soon put an end to any attempts to capture the perfect image, blurring at the slightest movement or leaving pictures positioned at awkward uneven angles. The Hama Star 75 Tripod eliminates this shake, providing a stable, sturdy base without breaking the budget.
Set on 3x extendible legs with rubber feet for improved grip on rough terrain, the Star 75 offers continuous adjustment of the central column height to a maximum of 42.5cm, along with a 3D tilt head for setting up the camera at a variety of angles and perspectives to achieve the shot you want.
Compatibility Across a Range of Cameras and Terrains
Ideal for both photo and video cameras, the Star 75 supports camera weights up to 500g for compatibility with a wide range of models. If you are in possession of several cameras, an integrated quick release plate allows cameras to be quickly interchanged with a simple clip on installation/removal for when you are in a hurry.
Built to provide stability even on rough outdoor terrain, the tripod head features a spirit level that ensures that you can achieve an even shot every time, whether on a rocky hillside or level ground. There will be no problem taking it with you on the go with a lightweight aluminium design and included tripod carry case that makes carrying it around that little bit easier.

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.
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.
I somehow managed to use it to photograph the northern lights with my Nikon D810 and Sigma 35mm f1.4 art :)
The below was observed while using it with my DSLR in Iceland recently.
The head is flimsy and does not hold its position steadily. You cannot prevent the tripod from shaking in case there is even a slight gust of wind blowing.
Not a waste of money at that cost though if you are using small cameras.
All the moving parts can be clamped to prevent shake rattle or roll, and while the less-than-smooth head is not really intended for live tilting or panning of video it is easy to make quick adjustments for a sequence of still shots or binocular views. The spirit levels are accurate enough to match the level sensor in my camera.
The various clamps work well, but the rubber feet tend to move about on a polished floor as weight changes, partly because the legs flex a bit and partly because the rubber is not at all sticky. So for longer sets I loop a cord around the feet as a makeshift spreader.
It is not as robust or well made as some professional tripods I have used in the past, but they were more than twenty times the price and a lot heavier, and usually had the option of a purpose built ground-level spreader for best stability. Again the head could be a lot better, but again one would have to pay an awful lot more to find a really good fluid-damped one suitable for smooth video panning.
As a quick and simple occasional use portable tripod it is brilliant, but I would suggest looking elsewhere for a daily use professional application.
The tripod came in nice, professional packaging and inside there was also a carry bag which is a really nice extra! The tripod stands pretty high is quite sturdy. The tripod is light and easy to carry around.
The central column and the quick release head gives a good control over the height and angles of the tripod.
The one thing that has annoyed me is that the arm that you loosen to move the camera etc up and down has dropped out and I have 2 washers with no idea where to put them back into, they won't fit anywhere. This is extremely annoying but I can still use the tripod if I hold it.
All in all, a good beginner tripod!

Its OK. A bit too wobbly for great pictures with a DSLR but I guess you'd expect that from a £20 tripod. Read morePublished 8 days ago by C. Tansey
