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
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.
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.
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.
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
