Most Liked Positive Review

 

Exactly what I needed.

I really like the fact that I can use this either in the field or on a solid surface such as a deck. The spikes in the feet retract.

Most Liked Negative Review

 

Cheap in every sense

It's a very clever design. However every aspect of it cries "CHEAPO". The screw mount holding the central strut cracked and fell of ON THE FIRST USE. It isn't a vital element of the whole thing but still. Only buy this if you're going to operate it GENTLY.

Sunpak SU6601UT tripod FAIL

By

from Cincinnati, Ohio  -  Photo Enthusiast

This unit is a bad implementation of a good idea. The center post will actually flex when fully extended. The legs are wobbly when fully extended. The bubble level is barely visible when SLR attached - almost useless. If it wasn't for the low price I got it at I would have returned. This will be my car trunk tripod - there for when I forget to bring along a good one. This tripod is a good example of building a product in the cheapest possible way. If the manufacturer had just ribbed the leg sections it would have been much more stable. Legs and center post mode a material that is too thin. I have used this and find it best to keep the lower leg sections closed, and the center column only extended to half length.

Good for the money

By

from Phoenix, AZ  -  Semi-pro Photographer

While this tripod holds its own for still photography that doesn't involve panning, it feels a little too rickety to me to use for something where capturing movement is involved (sports, wildlife, video). It's a great entry level tripod and I'm sure it'll be sturdy enough to use in the field and studio for years to come so long as I don't expect too much from it. I bought it for still photography (stress on STILL) and I believe it's well suited for that.

Worth the price

By

from St Louis, MO  -  Pro Photographer

I use this tripod to mount my Nikon Shoe Mounted Flash Unit Foot to the quick release plate. It's perfect because the tripod is lightweight which allows me to hold the tripod (with the flash attached) in my hand to give the flash a higher reach. I like the feature of the quick release and the extra quick release plate for this tripod. I find this feature quite helpful because it allows me to mount my foot of the flash unit onto the quick release plate so then all I have to do is attach the plate to the tripod and slide my flash onto the foot and lock it in. It's quite secure. I also use the extra quick release plate when I'm using more than one shoe mounted flash. I'll secure the quick release plate to the foot of the extra flash so it's ready in case I need to use the flash. I also like that the tripod has a small footprint. Quite helpful when I'm shooting an interior and I don't want to see my tripod in the shot.

Perfect tripod for flash

By

from Twin Cities  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use these tripods to support my off camera flash attachments. They have a very small footprint that allows me to place them in small spaces. They are stable and can extend to about 5'.

What you see is what you get

By

from Austin TexaS  -  Pro Photographer

This tripod does the job. Use it for photo id. It is durable enough to support 4 lbs. No major problems. Would prefer a mini tripod, but no one is making a desktop tripod that can support 4 lbs.

Sturdy & Stable

By

from Ridgefield, NJ  -  Casual Photographer

I wanted a tripod so that I could you my Canon Video/still camera while playing with my cat. I read reviews about many different models before I chose this one. I am very happy with the choice I made. It is very study, easy to change heights and move camera side to side and up and down. Love the quick release to remove camera to take hand held shots. Great value for the price. I strongly recommend this product.
