Vista Explorer 60-Inch Lightweight Tripod with Tripod Bag – Review:
GREAT VALUE – EXCELLENT SPARE, STARTER OR SECONDARY TRIPOD FOR GREAT PRICE!
This low cost tripod came up as a promotional offer when purchasing a camera so I really wasn’t expecting much since the price was so low. I figured the tripod bag would cost nearly that much so decided to give it a try. While by no means is this a professional model, it is an excellent value for an affordable starter tripod or spare.
Relatively lightweight – certainly not in the lightest class but sturdy and still manages to remain light enough to not tire for standard use.
Ability to rotate in all directions.
Quick connect/disconnect feature.
Able to hold decent sized DSLR not just super light weight point and shoot models.
Decent little canvas bag.
Quick hang hook.
Good spread – fairly steady.
Ability to set-up on non level surface.
All in all, this is a terrific starter tripod or spare you can toss around, leave in the car etc for a very affordable price. Not sure about durability since I’ve only had a short period of time but like I mentioned before, at the current sales price a tripod bag will cost you nearly the same amount. This should have a little life in it and can double for other uses later. Better than expected at this price!
