Summary: My husband gave me a video-recorder for Xmas a few years ago, but my arms get so tired when I'm filming the plays my son is in. So, he got me this for this past Xmas. It is very functional. It was easy to set up. It is easy to extend its height. My camcorder fits perfectly. Last weekend, my 9-year-old took a class at the science museum during which he made a telescope. His telescope fits on this tripod (although, technically, you'd want a taller tripod for a telescope.
Summary: My wife bought this tripod for me after an older one broke when I forced a retaining clip that was supposed to secure a telescoping leg segment in place, but did not hold well. The newer breed of tripods, this Sony tripod included, have a revised design for the retaining clips. Whether the new design will prove to be more robust than the previous generation is an empirical question; only time will tell.
Summary: I like this tripod. I just use it for basic picture taking. It took me a while to figure out how to release the nob so it will take a vertical picture. Other than that, it does the job. Definitely can't beat the price.
Summary: I shopped around and priced the sony tripod and yours was more cost effective. I ordered and it seems like I got it the next day lol. That was fast. . . . All the negative remarks made me think twice. But, I see that you can not believe all the negative remarks made about vendor products. For my part, I received a great product at a great price and good customer service. This has made my day lol.
Summary: This little radio offers the well known Sony quality and gets very good FM reception. It feels solidly built and in my opinion will last for years under normal wear and tear. However if you are considering this radio for its weather broadcasts I would advise you to look elsewear. The other reviewer here that mentioned that one only has to tune in the local weather frequency once if you don't move around is correct.
Summary: Amazon does not offer the best price on the product, if you have a ABC warehouse around you, they usually have it on sale. The product itself is very good. reception in am and fm is more than adequate. The sound quality is also very nice for a smaller speaker. I like the fact that it is water resistant. as another reviewer stated, you do have to open the battery compartment to adjust the weather channel. I find this helpful, not harmful.
Summary: very good quality, easy to use, light weight,just a little bit too long for my backpack. i bind it to the side of my backpack. it works. but if you buy a separate bag for it with shoulder strap this shouldn't be a problem. overall, i like it!
Summary: The tripod works great so far. Seems sturdy enough for heavy cameras. Pans and tilts are smooth. I like the removable adapter, you will too! Makes it easy to take cam of the tripod when you want to hold the camera.
