    I primarily wanted this tripod to be stable enough for 5.5lbs binoculars I use for stargazing. Binoculars have their weight shifted to one side, so the demand on the tripod is greater than for cameras, where the weight is directly on top and distributed evenly. A 5ft person can easily get the binoculars high enough over their head to point into the sky.

    The tripod is strong enough to maintain the weight of the heavy binos, and the head can maintain the angle I set it to. As an amateur I just wanted stability and longevity, and so far I can attest to its stability.

    It's definitely got a big wide footprint, which I see as a positive because it lessens the tendency to tip over. This doesn't really feel like a tripod meant to be set up and moved over and over again for filming the same event, but it does have the detachable head piece where you can quickly remove the camera/binos.

    I agree with everything everybody says about it's price, sturdiness, height, etc. It was a great tripod, until it broke. It's not a professional product (or priced professionally) so just be aware that it might not be able to take the abuse some people throw at it. This is actually the 3rd product I've had from ToCAD (Sunpak) that has broken on me.

    Good Tripod, poor head

    Comments about Sunpak 7575-Pro Platinum Plus Tripod with 3-Way Pan Head:

    I had planned to use this with a mirrorless cam for shooting video. It is a nice sturdy yet lightweight tripod. The head is very disappointing. The pan is acceptable, but the tilt is useless for video work. With the lock and drag at their loosest settings, the head still sticks before moving. There is no way to smoothly tilt the head. The unit is still useful for still photography.

        This is a really great tripod. I really like the way I can manage it so quickly and easily. It does need a padded carrier case to protect it. I had the same tripod and dropped it so many times, I finally decided if I was going to replace it, I was going to protect it.

          I use this product to support 3-1/4 lb. 15X70 binoculars while stargazing. This tripod has more than enough height to view at the zenith (I am 5'8"). The tripod is very reasonably priced and it meets my needs completely.

            Use for Photography outside and indoors, very sturdy, will hold 11 lbs. of equipment. Easy to use leg locks. All locks seem ok, but not sure. I'm liking this already and only had it a week.
            B & H service and shipping was terrific.

            Very sturdy. Two locking screws don't seem to provide a solid "lock". One is in the leg spreader and the other is on the crank-up extender. The leg expander doesn't seem to create a problem but the crank-up extender is a real problem because when I mount my 4.5 lb 650-1300 telephoto lens, the extender keeps wanting to collapse. Very annoying!

                I use the 7575 for an eight pound binocular and it is held steady whether observing overhead or straight out. I purchased one for myself and liked it so that I got one for my daughter and she loves it. Personally, I can't say enough good about it.

                  Comments about Sunpak 7575-Pro Platinum Plus Tripod with 3-Way Pan Head:

                  This one is to replace my last one which broke after about 5 years. This is my only tripod and it gets full-time pro use.
                  Flip lock legs are very fast to operate. Almost as versatile as my brother's $700 carbon-fiber Gitzo and much easier and faster to operate. Just as lightweight and holds the camera just as steady. Vibrates much less than many much more expensive tripods.
                  The head that comes with it is not very good. I immediately replaced it with a $50 Bogen ball head.
                  Its only real limitation is that it can't get very low (due to the braced construction of the legs).

Im on a budget, and on a deadline and have very specific specs:smooth and easy to pivot, sturdy yet lightweight, cost effective. This product surpassed anything available at my local tech equipment store and beat them at price.
                  Will use B and H for everything!

                    Comments about Sunpak 7575-Pro Platinum Plus Tripod with 3-Way Pan Head:

                    I originally bought this tripod a few years ago and it has been an excellent tripod, especially for the price. It's tall, durable and great for photography and even some video. I say "some video" because the head on it is not a "true fluid head" it has a pretty smooth horizontal; pan. but the vertical is only "ok" I bought this one, the second one, because i needed a second one not because anything was wrong with the 1st. The Sticks are nice too, easy to use, if you have a better head, mainly one for video, you can unscrew the head that came with and put on a different one.

                    again, sturdy, cost effective, and I highly recommend.

                    Comments about Sunpak 7575-Pro Platinum Plus Tripod with 3-Way Pan Head:

                    I primarily wanted this tripod to be stable enough for 5.5lbs binoculars I use for stargazing. Binoculars have their weight shifted to one side, so the demand on the tripod is greater than for cameras, where the weight is directly on top and distributed evenly. A 5ft person can easily get the binoculars high enough over their head to point into the sky.

                    The tripod is strong enough to maintain the weight of the heavy binos, and the head can maintain the angle I set it to. As an amateur I just wanted stability and longevity, and so far I can attest to its stability.

                    It's definitely got a big wide footprint, which I see as a positive because it lessens the tendency to tip over. This doesn't really feel like a tripod meant to be set up and moved over and over again for filming the same event, but it does have the detachable head piece where you can quickly remove the camera/binos.

                    Great product, it is heavy, but that is the best part because it is very stable. I'm 6'4" and I got a surprise the first night I used it, for I did not have to bend down at all, it actually put the camera over my head. I do wish that it came with two camera connectors, so I didn't have to change. But i can live that, more that I could with a sore back from bending over with my old tripod.

                    Quality tripods can be very pricey. The 7500 series offers a low-cost alternative.
                    My only complaint is that the little arm that you adjust for camcorder maneuverablitly has a tendency to break after several months of usage.

                    The pan handle got in the way when I shot portraits. I learned why many photographers prefer ball heads. The head on this tripod can be unscrewed and replaced with a ball head.

                    Also agree with earlier comment, for portraits use mirror lock up on your DLSR to minimize shake. I've also hung a weight bag on the center.

                      I tried to pair this with an 80mm spotting scope and found it was woefully inadequate. While the legs where somewhat sturdy, the pan head was not smooth at all. furthermore, the quick-release mechanism was very loose and quite wobbly. Bottom line, if you need sturdy support for any medium to large camera gear or any heavier equipment, you will need to look elsewhere.
