Velbon DV-7000 Tripod - A must see

25 June 2012
  • Excerpt: The Velbon DV-7000 is a great fluid head tripod that can be used by the most skilled photographer/videographer, but also those who are starting out. The two way fluid head allows for perfectly smooth pans, without much effort. A few cons about this high quality tripod is that it is heavy and may be a hassle to carry to varies jobs you may have out in the field. All in all, this tripod is a great tripod and at a very reasonable price.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Professional Quality
  • Cons: Heavy bulky

Tripod is a great value

  • Excerpt: I am a casual videographer who needed an all purpose tripod. This is a well built trpod for the cost and easy to set up and easy to adjust pan and tilt drag. One issue that came up was the head was not completely screwed together making for jerky pans, but it turns out that it was never tightened from the factory, once it was tightened correctly, it works great. B&H has very quick shipping too.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Great value, Highly Compatible, Improves Performance

Solid Tripod

19 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Great solid tripod. My first tripod that I've spent money on. This tripod feels very solid and stable, which is good as I do a lot of video of action sports outdoors. All the movements and releases feel good, not loose or shaky. Only two very small annoyances. There's a level, but it is underneath the head, so you have to tilt the head all the way over to see it. Also, the fine tune adjustments for rate of pan and tilt don't seem to do a lot.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Improves Performance, Solid

My First Velbon

LorneR, B&H Photo
19 June 2011
  • Excerpt: I have a Slik tripod with a ballhead, and a Manfrotto tripod with a 3-way head. I wanted a Fluid Effect 2 way head for video; my Slik has a fixed head, and I need the 3-way for my DSLR. I was going to stay with a brand that I knew, but couldn't find the features I wanted. My search led me to the Velbon DV-7000. It looked good in the photos, but it was the positive reviews on B&H that persuaded me to buy it. I am very pleased with my decision.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Professional Quality, Proper Weight For Job, Stable

Nice Tripod!

  • Excerpt: I bought this to use with my Glidetrack. It worked well, but after about three hours of use, the 1/4" bolt broke off. I then bought another one and used it with Bogen adapter and it is working great now. I was able to fix my first one, but I use it just as a regular tripod now. It is a nice tripod for the money.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Professional Quality

Great!

  • Excerpt: Have owned several of these in the past few years and have worked perfect every time. I use them a lot for beach weddings and sporting events, so they are put through the elements all the time. They usually last 3-4 years with through the elements, which is longer then expected due to the price!
