“A good product!”

Written on: 30/03/2012

i recieved my product last week from amazon, as a free gift from the following survey site: http://www.points2shop.com/?ref=uin1328432399 i must say it is well made so that it fits into an extremely small case, despite it being over a metre high when folded out. it has a normal screw, capabe of holding nearly any camera, however, the top bit has alot of screws and fixtures that i dont really know the reason for.. it is a brilliant product overall, and brilliant for anyone looking for a… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/08/2010 by mace1 (1 review written)

Very functional for what I paid for it from Amazon. I have 550d and the tripod does a wonderful job, although I find it is too light on windy situations, I usually hang a small camera bag from the hook , to add some anchor weight to it. There is also a solid carrying handle, that can be used as support to help with the stabilization.
All in all, for what I paid for it, it does the job perfectly. Just don't try to force things, try to figure the different functions and rotation axis and how the… Read Full Review

Great value for money. Good for beginners to support smaller to mid size cameras. IMHO if you have a DSLR it will not be good enough… Read Full Review

As my first Tripod i found it useful to get certain camera angles whilst filming.

However i feel that sturdiness is to be desired, Eventhough there is a hook to hang a weight from, It will just add to the budget… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/06/2009

Hama Star 61 Is a nice, compact tripod for a normal, standard camera or camcorder.
The first time you use it, it's sometimes difficult but it goes really great.
There's also a bag for the tripod.
You can turn it to the highest point of the tripod (135cm).
There's a lever on the unit (for professional recordings).
So you can turn it above 360 with the lever.
An integrated waterlevel for a straight posture… Read Full Review

I am quite pleased with my Hama Star 61 tripod which is lightweight and versatile. Excellent for smaller cameras and camcorders. Not all that robust for the heavier DSLR with zoom lens so be careful with plastic mounting plate… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/04/2009

Hmmmm, I guess you get what you pay for. The Hama Star 61 tripod looks good enough, is easy to use with quick release legs and camera mounting. Reasonably stable when erected.

Main gripe is the camera mounting assembly the plastic plate is not at all secure when in place - too much movement. Not really suitable for dslr.

Would be a good entry tripod for a digital compact though… Read Full Review

i suppose you get what you pay for, sorry I bought the Hama Star 61 now using it as a mono pod, my dlsr is to heavy for it especially when i use my 70-300 zoom lens. Lightweight but too much plastic not rigid enough… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/01/2009

Hama Star 61 is a nice cheap well made tripod, great for all vid and camera work, also i use this for my spotting scope to view the stars and moon. I really like this tripod its a good buy if you're on a budget also ideal for binoculars and bird watchers.
I recommend this tripod to all on a budget, the only downside is there's no instruction manual needed for begginers who've never owned a tripod before and dont know what knob is for what, but its quite simple to operate.
A thumbs up from me… Read Full Review

Cheap, firm, light, easy to use, good tripod, recommend Hama Star 61. Just lost the quick release plate - can't find a replacement. I think I'll just buy the whole tripod again, just this time I'll glue the plate to my camera… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/08/2004 by NewAmusements (27 reviews written)

When I was a kid I had to read this book for school about these weird 3-legged aliens and I loved the book so I have this weird appreciation for the aesthetic beauty of the tripod. The Hama Star 61 Tripod is no exception. Not only does it have beautiful, sleek, silver triangular lines, but it's got the requisite number of knobs and joints to make it look imposing and alien. Very yummy.

For the price (Just over £10 at Amazon), you get a great tripod which comes with rubber feet, a spirit… Read Full Review
