    Sturdy tripod

    By sara

    from Illinois

    Comments about VariZoom VZ-TP1568 Lightweight Photo Tripod/Head Combo:

    Comes with everything as listed. Shipping was super fast and everything boxed nicely. Tripod head is smooth and the locks need a little effort to open and close. Overall, great for the price.

    Bad Pinch points - Avoid - Dangerous

    • Good Stability


    • Pinch Points

    • Landscape/Scenery

    Comments about VariZoom VZ-TP1568 Lightweight Photo Tripod/Head Combo:

    The tripod is some what stable for the price. the tripod didn't come with a shorter column so if you wanna get close to the ground its almost impossible.
    But the biggest flaw is the pinch point by the levers to lock the legs.if you use one hand to open the levers, you are bound to cut your fingers. i did just that and ended up bleeding all over my gear

    Good product for the money.

    By Jeremy

    from Virginia Beach

    Comments about VariZoom VZ-TP1568 Lightweight Photo Tripod/Head Combo:

    I'm loving this tripod. It's easy to use. I love the gear hook and being able to invert the camera for low perspective shots. Only negative is the weight, but it says something about the craftsmanship of this product. Would definitely recommend this product to anyone.

    Great Tripod

    By Barry the Photographer

    from Earth

    Verified Buyer


    • Flexible
    • Lightweight
    • Sturdy


    • 1 bubble level was empty

    Best Uses

    • Capturing Motion
    • Everyday Portraits

    Comments about VariZoom VZ-TP1568 Lightweight Photo Tripod/Head Combo:

    I got this Tripod because the specs were the same as the popular $300 Manfrotto leg/head combo. This tripod actually weighs less and supports more weight than the Manfrotto equivalent.

    In my first test shots using it, I was able to get the camera level and centered on what I wanted to capture (which was a moving train). I was fairly close to the train and the tripod remained standing despite the intense force of the wind from the train. It didn't wobble at all and the pictures came out how I wanted.
