Exceeded all expectations

I was pleasantly surprised by this tripod -- it's light and highly versatile. You do get what you pay for in terms of quality, but mine has held up well over the course of nearly a year and on many travels. The bag is useful and water resistant and I find the tripod overall very simple to adjust, even with my camera attached. I have a Canon Rebel DSLR camera, but it seems to me that this product would fit most any camera.


Five Stars

excellent light weight tripod. Works good.


Follow the buzz!

I bought this for the price and reviews. The price was very nice, nearly half of what I paid for my first tripod. As well, the reviews were very good on this. I can say that I agree with those, as this has withstood quite a bit of abuse.

Just for still images

Unsteady and ultra light. Can't used for tilt or pan a video camera, so If you need a still picture or regular picture is a good option for the price.

Thanks for being a Davis & Sanford customer. The Vista Explorer tripod is a light and inexpensive solution. If you are looking for a more robust tripod, we have several other models to choose from. One of our most popular is the TR653C-V9.
