Excerpt: Unstable, weak, poor quality and faulty are words to describe the Vivitar VIV-VPT-1252 Tripod. I have owned 2 which had different faults and now own the Velbon DF-51 which is much better quality.
Excerpt: A lightweight tripod that would suit small or lightweight cameras. I would recommend having a good look at this before purchasing. The advertised load capacity is 4.2 kg. Unfortunately that is incorrect as the manufacturer rates it at 4lbs or 1.8kg
Excerpt: With this tripod I was able to take some fine quality pictures. Very sturdy and highly adjustable. In comparison to my last tripod bought from an online vendor, this tripod leaves it in the dust! Great buy from Argos!
Excerpt: The overall design is acceptable but the most important part is the camera mount which lets it down. Whilst you can adjust the camera in one direction with a spirit level the opposite angle could not be as it has a fixed position.
Excerpt: Clearly a great price, hence I bought it and tried it. First one the extended legs were jammed and the latch where the camera sits was never flat. Returned it and after opening it at home the second had the same problem that the camera would not sit perfectly horizontal.
