Does the Job

Richie, B&H Photo
7 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I upgraded my camera to a newer sony digital HD camera and had to upgrade as my existing sony remote control tripod was not compatible. The zoom wide and telephoto is reversed from my previous sony tripod. I still also use my standard def setup so this is very confusing.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, I Like The Removable Hand, Lightweight, Removable Handle, Very stable
  • Cons: Limited Compatibility, Zoom Is Reverse

Not compatible with all Sony cameras

JCain, B&H Photo
24 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this because I have a few year old HVR-A1U and I would like to do more tracking and experimental shots with it. I assumed that I could connect my camera with an adapter at the very least and that Sony wouldn't make a proprietary connector that even they don't provide support for previous generations of products.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Lightweight
  • Cons: Lacks Functionality, Limited Compatibility

Chance Yuen, B&H Photo
26 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I didn't buy it for myself but for a friend and she was very happy about it. She loves the tripod and tells me that it has been the best thing she has gotten since her last tripod broke. 5/5 stars would recommend the tripod to any Sony photographers or just a hobby.

for Sony cameras only

18 October 2013
  • Excerpt: deducted one star because Sony replaced the universal 2.5" jack with their proprietary one so you can't use the controller for non-Sony cameras.

Multi terminal connector

Steve Video Producer, B&H Photo
3 October 2013
  • Excerpt: The tripods are ok and the fluid head is not bad for an inexpensive tripod. BUT - the "multi" connector cord that connects to the sony camcorder is nothing like the normal "half moon" connector that works with most all of the sony consumer camcorders built over the past few years. This new connector looks more like a micro hdmi connector. DO not order this without checking the connector on your device.

Great product, fantastic service.

sanlorenzo, B&H Photo
19 August 2013
  • Excerpt: We are based in London England; I mention this now because nobody in Europe had any stock of this item, and my experience in the past has been that B&H usually have what we need, sell at a fair price, and deliver fast. We know this product well, as we have another that we use often; if you have a Sony with a 'multi' connector this is a super quality tripod for a modest price.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Professional Quality

  • Excerpt: The design of this tripod is great! The ony improvemen would be to make the cable not detach from the arm, just keep it in the arm so it won't come loose.
  • Pros: High Quality, Lightweight
  • Cons: Cable Disconnects Frm Arm
