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.

Pretty good

  • Excerpt: I rounded up because I couldn't give it 3.5 stars.<br /><br />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

Excellent piece of kit

Nigel, WEX

  • Summary: The leg design is very ridged so you feel completely stable when using it.I love the pivoting and swivel action of the head as it is floor less.The cork faced mounting plate screws onto your camera with a small but solid wing-nut and then a really good quick release mechanism allow you to very quickly detach for action shots and re-attach to the stand very fast and with one single action. Brilliant.
  • Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement

GOOD PURCHASE

FOXY, WEX

  • Summary: I found the Velbon Sherpa 200R to live up to it's description, it is easy to open with the quick release legs I found it sturdy enough as I use it for my birding scope, and the pan and tilt head is an absolute joy to use when it comes to following birds it gives you the option of fast manoeuvrability, not to mention the ability to quickly change to my camera to capture any suitable pictures, extra quick release plate required.
  • Pros: Excellent Features
  • Cons: non lives up to it's description
