          Smooth operation of all parts right out of the box. Velbon quality and Velbon value! Pleased all around. Heavier than some tripods, but for the price, seems better than you pay for.

          I would buy again *AND* I would refer other to buy same.

              Comments about Velbon DF-60 Tripod W/3-Way Panhead:

              This is an ok tripod to use for lightweight cameras. The legs are strong and metal, but the quick release is all plastic which is not stable for DSLR cameras or with a zoom lens. If you want something more stable get a tripod that has a metal quick release. But if you are just starting out, this is an ok tripod to use.

                Excellent product. Use this for ornithology trips. Compact, very sturdy and reliable and easy to set up. This is my second one and I'm replacing it but through no fault of the product just ultimate overuse! Thoroughly recommend it.
