Sony VCT-80AV Remote Control Tripod for Camcorders

  • Summary: This fluid head tripod turned out to be just great. There were not reviews on it yet when I bought it, because it was a new model, but it seemed to address all the problems I read about in other reviews especially the "real" fluid oil head which was not available on such a modestly priced tripod in my investigations.

  • Summary: I currently own a Sony HDR-SR12, which I'm absolutely in love with. Ever since I've had it, I've been looking for a matching tripod, and boy I'll tell you, " THIS IS THE ONE " Its perfect size,weight,strength,asthetics,etc. make it the perfect match-up for any Sony Handycam if you ask me. This tripod compliments the features on our awesome Sony camcorders like no other tripod can. Im confident in the Sony quality of this tripod to give me many uses for years to come.

I love this tripod

  • Summary: This tripod is so light and for times when I am not moving at all and I am tucked away somewhere shooting with a small camera, it's great. You plug in the lanc and all controls are on the arm and the whole thing is so inexpensive!!! I had one before but its controls were opposite so when you pushed T it went wide and when you pushed W it went close and it was ridiculous to remmeber that while shooting.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Smooth Movement

Sony VCT-80AV Remote Control Tripod for Camcorders

  • Summary: Im a believer in Sony's remote control Tripods. Makes shooting video a lot easier and resulting better videos with my Sony HDR-SR11. A bit pricey but its a Sony. Thanks to Amazons competitive pricing, makes getting one a lot more convincing. Amazon.com LLC my choice for fast, efficient order processing and great shipping times to Honolulu, Hawaii even with standard shipping. I usually get my stuff from 3 to 5 days from ship date.

Excellent Sony VCT 80AV Tripod

  • Summary: The Sony tripod has excellent features, quality components and very smooth movement. The controller grip integrates nicely with the Sony HD SR10 video camera. The tripod uses a universal mounting bracket that works well with my SLR Canon and even swings over on its side for portait shots. Excellent product. I have been very happy with it.
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement

Sony VCT-80AV Remote Control Tripod for Camcorders

  • Summary: I bought this unit since I recently purchased a HDR SR11 hard drive camcorder. My wife and I spend a lot of time taking video of horses in horse shows. I have a regular professional camera with all the bells and whistles; however, she was having to spend hours holding the camcorder. This tripod works great with the AV connector...its made for it. The selling point was the built-in remote control. It has variable speeds and works ABSOLUTELY great.

Great tripod for our Video-TV class!

  • Summary: This tripod works well for our basic TV production class, paired with the Sony SR-11 camcorders the students use. Having the controls on the handle gives the essential feel of how the pro cameras/tripods work.
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement

Does the job

  • Summary: I video theater performances, using a Sony HDR-SR12, and the slow-zoom feature of the remote control produces excellent results. The control arm is a little stubby .. an additional 3 or 4 inches would be better.
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Rugged, Smooth Movement
  • Cons: Short control arm
