    Love it!

    Very sturdy tripod. I absolutely love the pistol grip ballhead. It makes it very easy to straighten your camera even when your tripod is at an uneven angle. Excellant product!

    I was very excited and happy about this product. I have waited so long to use it and the day that I tried to use it for my first time, when i was adjusting the tilt head, the spring of it came out for no reasons. I was very shocked and tried to fix it but never worked. For I got recommended this product from the customer service, I had great expectation for it and now i'm very sad.
    When I first got it, there were some damages on its outside but I thought it would be just because it was carried over the states. I don't know if it was only mine, but I got very dissappointed.

      This tripod mush be meant for point and click cameras. I have a nikon d7000 and it can't hold it even with my small 50mm. It is only usable for portraits when I am behind the camera supporting it. I would definitely not suggest it for anyone trying to take long exposures, especially if you want to angle the camera.

          I'm getting into landscape photography so I bought this with that in mind. It was very well priced and it has solid construction. This being my first tripod I was not really sure what to look for, but since putting it to use it has taught me plenty. I love the pistol grip mechanism wich makes it easy to udjust, but it can feel a bit flimsy with a heavier camera. Its easy to extend and collaps the legs and it also easy to cary. A good entry tripod.

            Comments about Sunpak 6600CPG Tripod with Pistol Grip Ball Head (Black):

            I need a tripod I could abuse. When I first got this one, I was worried that the plastic parts felt cheapy but they have held up through a lot of positioning and repositioning. This is strictly a photo tripod so don't expect any good panning action on your DSLR should you decide to shoot some video. The pistol grip is good quality and works well with the built-in levels. The legs are good-quality aluminum and, overall, I've never felt my camera to be at risk while using this, even on awkward, unlevel ground. I will say that the crank is poorly designed. It works well but there's no clearance to use it usually end up twisting it to get it working.

            I have a Panasonic DMC FZ200 which is hefty. No problem for this tripod to handle. I like the pistol grip handle and it helps when shooting video. Very well made. Kind of long with the pistol grip but I just unscrew it and it all fits in a 25 inches tripod bag.

            The action is a little tight, but I am speaking as a person who is somewhat disabled. The functions and features of the tripod are fantastic for the price. I would certainly recomend it to anyone looking for a stable and versatile platform for their camera.

                    I'm a new food photographer with a not-so-steady hand, so a good tripod is a necessity, especially when I'm shooting dinners in low light. This tripod is great — it's sturdy, and I can easily change angles or heights without having to stop everything I'm doing. For the price, I'm a very happy customer.

                    Note: A tiny spring popped out the first time I use it, but as far as I know, it hasn't affected my ability to use this tripod.

                                I am a first-time filmmaker with very little money to spend. This tripod is affordable, compact, lightweight, but sturdy, which were my only requirements at the time that I purchased it. I now wish it had a little more versatility, but I make do. Given the low price, I'm happy with it.

                                Workers could stand a few lessons in assembly before we get them. You need an allen wrench to adjust the tension, so the head will turn properly. Be sure you have B&H to check that the "Ball" is not crooked as it could lead to stripping or it could fall off w/mounted camera. Better yet don't buy this. Invest a little more and buy a tripod w/o the head and buy the head separately. Fortunately, I read an article about this exact same thing. I was able to fix mine. I also used a little "Locktite" to help secure the mounting bolt.

                                      Thank you B&H for the ability to purchase quality equipment for a an affordable price. My purchase of the 6600PG Tripod with Pistol Grip Ball Head is the exact replica of the tripod my photography instructor uses during instructional classes. I found it funny when he asked me how being a student I could afford the same tripod he had invested over $300.00 on as an instructor. Once again thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn with quality equipment and not settle for the cheap junk at [*]Kelly Coss
