OK for light use.

abelgus, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I used this tripod for photographing small paintings. It is a light weight tripod, useful for carrying around, but a little too light for studio work. The mount is plastic; however, the camera quick release worked well - a good design. The tilt feature - necessary for getting the image leveled in the frame has too much flexibility - tighten the clamp and it sags a degree or two.
  • Pros: Large Range of Motion

  • Summary: The Velbon DF 60 is a good mid-weight stand for the money. The material and moving parts have proved appropriate. Light weight, but durable.

  • Summary: it's plastic.However quite stable. I'm considering a 70-200 IS F2.8/L,so wait and see if it can carry it. However,I think it will work perfectly until you put some huge stuffs such as 1Ds Mark3 plus a 400 4/L... very satisfied.

  • Summary: I really like this thing. It's light enough and feels sturdy enough for a small camera, even possibly a video camera. Then again, I'm a novice so take this review with a grain of salt.

  • Summary: This thing is very steady, however there is one thing I don't like about is that the level trigger thing in the middle is very annoying. When I roll it to the high level it cannot handle heavy camera to hold on to it. I wish there is a lock button to hold it.

Decent Light Weight Tripod

  • Summary: I've had experience with the bargain brands, and those aren't even worth the trouble. If you are looking for a great bargain, though, this is the one. I wouldn't trust using this for rugged outdoor shooting, but it's great for my studio set up. It has a fluid head, bubble level and feels like it won't tip over as easily as the cheap-o tripods. Definitely a great buy at $50, as the next plateau of tripods with the same functionality are more than double the price.
  • Pros: Compact and light, but able to support large rigs (up to 15lbs). All in one solution (Fluid Head + Legs).
  • Cons: Plastic knobs and camera plate. Hard plastic, slippery feet.

Varsin tukeva ja hyvänlaatuinen valokuvausjalusta on kyseessä, suosittelen lämpimästi! :)

McMakedonia, Verkkokauppa

  • Summary: Jalusta on varsin hyvälaatuinen ja hinta/laatusuhde on kyllä kohdillaan. Tämä ei ole ensimmäinen Velbon jalustani sillä ensimmäisen ostin murkkuikäisenä valokuvausliikkeestä käytettynä ja se palveli ihan viime päiviin asti mutta nyttemmin alkoi jo hajota. Siitä on siis aikaa miltei 20-vuotta! Jos tämä uusi jalusta palvelee yhtä kauan olen enemmän kuin tyytyväinen. Jalusta on valmistettu varsin laadukkaista materiaaleista, alumiinia ja muovia on käytetty.

Tukeva, mutta hieman "jäykähkö"!

Vilzku, Verkkokauppa

  • Summary: Olen nyt käyttänyt tätä kolmijalkaa muutaman viikon, ja olen todella tyytyväinen. Jalusta on pääasiassa tukeva, mitä nyt pisimmässä asennossa vähän tärisee esim. tuulesta. Videokuvaukseen en tätä suosittelisi, sillä kääntyvä pää on hieman "jäykähkö", vaikka löysäisi kaikki ruuvit aivan löysälle. Peruskuvaamiseen todella hyvä kolmijalka, mikäli etsii halvemman hintaluokan kolmijalkaa.
