Durable yet inexpensive

coachlaing, Staples

  • Excerpt: I am a high school sports coach, and I needed to replace our current camera tripod. We film all home and away girls basketball games, and our previous tripod was about 8-10 years old, so it became in need of replacement. This model fit the bill perfectly, as it is lightweight for bringing it on the bus with us to away games, yet it is durable enough to be set up and put away by our managers and players at each game.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly

  • Excerpt: I mainly use this tripod to photograph artists art for prints. It has many adjustments that meet my needs. Height adjustment and level adjustments are extremely important, this tripod fills the bill. I like the solid feel of it and am pleased with my purchase.

Love this for my camera

  • Excerpt: Was offered this special when shopping for other camera accessories. What a great deal. I knew I wanted a tripod and had been shopping, but a good one just seemed to be out of my budget. Stumbled upon this and it was well within budget and knew I would not be leaving the store without it in my possession.

A superior tripod for the price

  • Excerpt: I researched several tripods in the <$50 price range -- both on-line and in stores -- and no others seem to come close to the Vivitar 5660 for quality and features. I have not been disappointed with its actual performance. It is easy to set up and take down, very stable, and the head is very flexible for adjusting the position of my camera.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Angel_Rocks, Staples

  • Excerpt: It will not swivel smoothly. It's fine when you do it fast but for slow panning it is all over the place. It's rediculous. I do not like it whatsoever.
  • Cons: It Does Not Swivel Smooth

Great item!

  • Excerpt: Being fairly new to photography, I wasn't really sure that I need to purchase a tripod for the kind of photography that I would be doing. A good friend of mine has a tripod and explained to me all the times that she uses hers. I began to shop around and found this tripod. Appearing to be a good value and the fact that it was heavy duty, I decided to purchase it for myself. Since buying it a couple of weeks ago, I can honestly say that I have used it almost everyday.
