Hama Star 75: Stable stilts for my Samsung......camera
13 January 2013
Summary: Introduction:: ********** I have an ancient tripod, which must surely be a museum piece by now, given me by a very dear friend decades ago; but rarely used because of its spindly legs, making it very unstable when fully extended. When I got my first camcorder, a heavy monster compared to today's models, I needed a sturdy tripod, one which wouldn't fall over at the slightest knock; fortunately however, I was able to borrow one on the odd occasion I needed it so never gave...
Pros: Inexpensive, lightweight, sturdy and stable.
Summary: It's light it's durable it's cheap, but does it feel cheap? In my opinion no it doesn't, it looks and feels great. Although it's probably not made out of the best of quality materials it is very sturdy and great value for money. At only £8.99 on amazon with a free carry case it is a bargain!
Hama Star 75: Budget tripod for cameras and camcorders
9 August 2010
Summary: INTRODUCTION The Hama Star 75 tripod is a budget tripod featuring a 3-way tripod head, built-in spirit level and a quick release plate. The length is minimum 42.5cm and maximum 1.25m. It weights 620g and comes with a free carrying bag. The tripod is targeted at the very low end of the budget camcorder and camera market. Tripods are commonly used for two reasons.
Pros: Reasonably cheap, very light, comes with carrying bag
Summary: Good cameras and accessories can seem expensive for a novice photographer; I like to be confident that I will get my moneys worth out of new lenses or accessories. At my level, I naturally aimed to buy a tripod that would simply allow me to get me started. That is, one that does the job, doesn't have any fancy features, and wouldn't burn any holes in my pocket. At less than £9 the Hama Star 75 certainly seemed to tick all of these boxes.
Pros: Cheap, Sturdy Enough, Lightweight, Reduces to a small size
Cons: Not suitable for professionals / experienced users, and won't last forever
Summary: I used the Hama Star 75 tripod last year for a short period of time before realising that it was unsuitable for my needs. I still have the slightly more expensive Hama Star 61 and in this review I have to some extent compared some of the features of this model with those of the Hama Star 75.
Pros: Very cheap, lightweight, quick and easy to set up, and comes with a quick release plate.
Cons: A bit flimsy for use with long lenses or heavier cameras/camcorders.
