Not too bad
VCT-R640 20 April 2018 by Merhej (Australia)
Good quality but very bad base stability for zooming cameras
Taken from store.sony.com.au
Exactly as described and good build quality for $

Does everything it says it does. Not the best video tripod out there however it would be hard to find something of similar build quality and functionality for similar price point.

Sturdy and specific for my camera. For the price I am over impressed with every aspect of this tripod.
Great Tripod - highly recommend it.

Great tripod. I bought it to use primarily with with a Sony Handycam but also a Sony Cybershot. Works very well with both. Robust but light, very flexible range of adjustments, well designed and easy to use. May not be the cheapest tripod but I think it is excellent value for money. Would not hesitate to recommend it.

Every feature of n this tripod is amazing, but its just a shame that it never came with any carrying accessory. Nevertheless, a well deserved 5/5!
Broke after second use
VCTR640 10 December 2014 by SundeyPSU (USA)
Not for hard core use, so maybe I was foolish. PLUS, it did not come with a case or bag, which makes traveling with it a pain. The pan and tilt handle fell off at some point on my last shoot. When I took the tripod off my pack, I realized it was gone. I hiked quite a bit, so no idea where it fell off. Now need to buy another, but won't be this one.
Affordable, smooth and versatile

I just purchased this tripod a couple of hours ago for my Sony Alpha SLT-A37 camera. It's light weight, study, affordable, and very fluid with its tilting and panning - in short, I simply love it. I would highly recommend it.

Great value tripod
VCTR640 18 June 2011 by mondorescue (USA)
I've had this tripod for a few years. For what I've paid for, I think I got a great product. The tripod is lightweight and sturdy enough for occasional uses with the big video cameras (e.g. HDR-FX7). I use this with my tiny Cybershot cameras, so this product in lots of ways is overkill. One gripe I have with this product is that the center beam part is made of plastic that seems to break with relative easy. I've attached a photo showing the problem area. With that exception, the bubble tool helps me level the tripod perfectly. The tripod can extend pretty tall, and it is lightweight where I take it with me on most of my travels. The legs are made of aluminum so they last.

i recently purchased this tripod and so far thoroughly impressed. considering i did not want to spend hundreds of dollars on a tripod, this tripod has all the bells and whistles for a reasonable price. yes the more expensive ones will be even more durable and more features, but for the money, and for what i want to do, it is perfect. unfolding it is a cinch, take out the legs, and there is a knob to adjust every position or angle you want to move the head in. my hdr sr12 and trv138 fit snugly on the removable head, which locks in firmly, and as long as you screwed your camera in tight enough, no worries about it falling off. overall, if your on a budget and want a reliable tripod, this is the way to go. The cheaper sony tripod just so you know is considerably shorter, so look at the height numbers to make your choice. the only thing that would make this better is if it had a small bag that once folded up it could be placed in.
