Velbon Sherpa 200R

JayC, Crutchfield
25 September 2013
  • Summary: A sturdy tripod that's used for a camcorder and a DSLR camera. The legs are easy to adjust and lock into place quite nicely. I like that the shoe has a bit of foam padding to keep my devices scratch free. A bit pricey but worth the investment. I can see this tripod lasting for years

Pretty good

  • Excerpt: I rounded up because I couldn't give it 3.5 stars.It's a pretty decent tripod for still shots that I managed to get at a rather good price. It's just a very standard tripod, without the bells and whistles and snakey, bendy, swivel action of more advanced and expensive models.
  • Pros: Good Stability
  • Cons: Cumbersome
