    Being fairly new to photography, I wasn't really sure that I need to purchase a tripod for the kind of photography that I would be doing. A good friend of mine has a tripod and explained to me all the times that she uses hers. I began to shop around and found this tripod. Appearing to be a good value and the fact that it was heavy duty, I decided to purchase it for myself. Since buying it a couple of weeks ago, I can honestly say that I have used it almost everyday. Still photography and shooting waterfalls has never been easier. I can't wait to try other shots.

    I needed a tripod on an emergency basis for a project. Staples was the only store around (I love that stores are always right where you need one!) and they had two tripods - this and a cheaper Vivitar. There were no samples out and the box was sealed. I figured that the tripod ought to be at least 'good enough' for the price (under $40). All the gears are plastic. If you tighten a knob too much or turn the crank too far you'll mangle the gear and break the thing.

    The mechanisms are also full of burrs so that if you try and smoothly pan or tilt, you'll get jumps as you bump into the burrs. It gets better as you work it back and forth further suggesting the softness of the critical sections of the tripod.

    The device I wanted to hold was only a simple voice recorder but I wouldn't trust this with a camera I care about.

      Comments about Vivitar VIV-VPT-5660 Series One Pro Heavy-Duty Tripod:

      I am a high school sports coach, and I needed to replace our current camera tripod. We film all home and away girls basketball games, and our previous tripod was about 8-10 years old, so it became in need of replacement. This model fit the bill perfectly, as it is lightweight for bringing it on the bus with us to away games, yet it is durable enough to be set up and put away by our managers and players at each game. Although I typically will set it up and take it down, it needs to be durable enough for this to happen quickly, as well as for 25-30 events and 60+ games per season (JV and Varsity).

        I mainly use this tripod to photograph artists art for prints. It has many adjustments that meet my needs. Height adjustment and level adjustments are extremely important, this tripod fills the bill. I like the solid feel of it and am pleased with my purchase.

          Comments about Vivitar VIV-VPT-5660 Series One Pro Heavy-Duty Tripod:

          Was offered this special when shopping for other camera accessories. What a great deal. I knew I wanted a tripod and had been shopping, but a good one just seemed to be out of my budget. Stumbled upon this and it was well within budget and knew I would not be leaving the store without it in my possession.

            Comments about Vivitar VIV-VPT-5660 Series One Pro Heavy-Duty Tripod:

            I researched several tripods in the <$50 price range -- both on-line and in stores -- and no others seem to come close to the Vivitar 5660 for quality and features. I have not been disappointed with its actual performance. It is easy to set up and take down, very stable, and the head is very flexible for adjusting the position of my camera.
