I bought this tripod as a back-up to my very old, but much smaller travel tripod. It is very light, and seems stable enough with a DSLR and telephoto mounted. While it doesn't extend tall enough for a six-foot-plus shooter to use the optical viewfinder, with a tilt-swivel monitor that isn't a problem. There are some advanced features, like a quick-release plate and bubble level. The legs have foam padded segments, which is nice in cold weather or if you carry the tripod on your shoulder. There is also a carry handle. The tilt-pan head doens't seem smooth enough for video, and might be awkward to adjust quickly. (I'm more used to ball heads.)
The leg tips have hard rubber ends, no retractable spikes. The center column has a hook on the end for a weight bag, but will not reverse for low angle shooting.

For the low price, this is a pretty good tripod if you don't expect too much in professional features. There's also a nylon carry bag with an adjustable shoulder strap.

I DID LIKE THE FOAM HANDLES AND THE SNAP-OFF BASE. OTHERWISE I WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER OFF BUYING THE ONES I SEE AT YARD SALES ALL THE TIME. THE LIQUID FILLED BUBBLE LEVELER WAS BROKEN, BUT I DON'T NEED IT BECAUSE I CAN SEE WHAT I AM PHOTOGRAPHING, AND DON'T NEED A BUBBLE TO LINE THE SHOT UP FOR ME. I LOST THE RECIEPT SO I DIDN'T REALLY FEEL LIKE PUTTING MYSELF THROUGH THE ORDEAL. IT DOES HAVE 3 LEGS SO IT IS A TRIPOD. THE PLASTIC GEARS WILL WEAR OUT IF I EVER MOVE OR BREAK IT DOWN AGAIN

Comments about Vivitar VPT-2457 Photo/Video Tripod:

I love this versatile, light-weight, compact tripod! Comes with a nice travel bag, so it can easily be placed in luggage, and probably a carry-on (depending on the size of the carry-on). Also, the levels and detachable mount make this an added value!

Good for the money.

Comments about Vivitar VPT-2457 Photo/Video Tripod:

This tripod is decent for the price. Features include quick release adapter for the camera, quick locking levers for the leg length adjustments and locking collar for the braces. Everything else is pretty much standard. A couple nice extras include a carry handle on the tripod itself and a carrying and storage bag. Overall, the quality is in line with the price. Lots of plastic. The pan head is a little stiff or very loose. Don't expect fluid head - like operation. This tripod sets up and adjust very easily. It is also quite lightweight. Should be great on those long field trips.

Comments about Vivitar VPT-2457 Photo/Video Tripod:

The Vivitar Tripod I bought in late January, went with me to Guatemala. It is light & fits perfectly in a medium sized suitcase. It traveled with me across Lake Atitlan and was used for several video location shoots. Good product!!!

Comments about Vivitar VPT-2457 Photo/Video Tripod:

At first I was concerned about the thin extensions that are the bottom-most parts of the legs, but they are sturdy and lock into place quite tightly. The connection piece to the camera screws on snugly and securely (which is always a concern if using an expensive camera on a tripod!). The only wobbly issue I have found is when you fully extend the top part with the crank handle...it locks in, so I doubt it would ever fall downward, but it wobbles enough that I wouldn't use a camera with a long lens on it, for fear it might pull the entire tripod over forward.
The built-in bubble levels are handy, but I haven't found an honest use for them yet. Accessory hook is pretty close to the floor for it to do much good, but there may be a use for it...

    Absolutly loving the Vivitar VPT-2457 Tripod. I had a very specific need and this item fills it perfectly. The ease of setup and takedown is a major plus! The tripod has a couple of levels on it so that you can be sure your photos turn out just right. Packs up nicely and is super light for travel. Love this product!
