            Comments about Davis & Sanford ProVista 6510 Tripod with V10 Fluid Head (65mm Ball Leveler):

            We are the Digital Media/Broadcasting PTE program in our district and for entry level classes we use this tripod because you can't find a better deal on a ball-head tripod. Although the unit isn't as rugged as we'd like given the price we can afford to replace any we may lose. (8 are in use).

            This gives the students a stepped up experience so they're not working with purely consumer level DSLR/Video tripods.

            I use this for a secondary tripod. This item is very good for the cost. The head is not the most durable, but it gets the job done and should never be relied upon as a heavy duty item. All in all i am happy with this product and I would recommend it to a friend.

                      Comments about Davis & Sanford ProVista 6510 Tripod with V10 Fluid Head (65mm Ball Leveler):

                      I bought this product in favor of the similar Bescor model. Two things made me purchase this one instead: first, this is a fluid head, and I want that range of motion. I need smooth tilts and pans, and you're on safer ground with a fluid head, which the Provista has. Second, a found a comment in the Bescor that was similar to my experience: out of the box I broke a lever trying to disengage the quick-release plat. That it happened to someone else confirmed that there is a problem with manufacture and design of the Bescor. So, I ordered the ProVista. I found it to be stable at one stage release. No tripod under $[$] is going to give you stability with two stages released--let's be real. So it's stable at one stage, no complaints. The quick release plate worked fine: popped right off. Unfortunately, the quick release plate was full of lubricating goo underneath. I spent a lot of time cleaning it. I bought this tripod for the head--so let me cut to the chase. While the tilt control is a dream, the pan is a nightmare. There is simply no way to overcome the initial jerk it takes to get this head panning. With the tensioner completely disengaged there's still so much stiffness that you cannot move this thing without jerking it. In the end, you want three things from a tripod: stability, smooth tilt, and smooth pan. This thing is dicey with one, great with the other, and stinks at the third. Hate to say it because I want to encourage manufacturers to build $[$] and below tripods for the new lightweight HD cameras, but I would walk away from this one--I'm returning mine.

                        Provista 6510 is a great lightweight tripod for smooth pan and tilts. Head also has nice fixed counterbalance feature. Tripod sets up easy and comes with carry bag. I did not want to spend a lot and this tripod gives me what I need to shoot great video.
