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:

easy to use, love the level on it, the crank handle to raise the camera up to a certain level that you wish to us. I also love the bag that comes with it, my other tripod did not come with a carrying case. I leave it right in my car for outside use.

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.
