CAME-TV Q66C overview

  • 1Description

Ideal for travel or on-the-go photographers, the Q66C Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ball Head from Came-TV is a versatile compact tripod that folds down to just 13.8" thanks to reverse-folding legs. The tripod extends from 14.2 to 60.6" and can hold up to 17.6 lb. The 8-layer carbon fiber legs lend to the overall light weight of the tripod, just 2.9 lb including the ball head.

The five-section legs have twist locks to individually adjust their height, and one of the legs can be removed to be used as a monopod. The included ball head has an Arca-style quick-release clamp and plate, separate locks for the ball and panning motions, and multiple bubble levels for properly aligned images.

Center Column
The center column has two sections, allowing it to extend while remaining compact when it is retracted. It can also be reversed to get the camera down low.
Ballast Hook
You can add a weight or heavy bag to the hook on the bottom of the center column for additional stability.
Included Cases
A camouflage carrying case protects the tripod when in transport, and a separate case protects the ball head, on or off the tripod. A waist bag and wrist strap are also included.

    CAME-TV Q66C reviews

    Q66C Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ball Head is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Yes, it is carbon fiber, and it is light, but....... I'll cut to the chase. The ball head is pretty cheap, I have seen it sold online for around $20.00. I put on my Oben BA-117T ball head. The release lever for the legs is hard to use. instead of a rocker arm, it is a pull out lever making a quick adjustment of the legs out of the question. It has a lot of shake when the legs and the center columns are fully extended. Other than that, for the price this is a somewhat good tripod if you want something to take hiking or backpacking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amateur photographer, fits the budget for what i need. Being an amateur photographer and in college, this fits the budget for what I need and nothing less. Very stable tripod and solid in the hands without the fear of flimsy material, the Q66C is very lightweight and strong being made of carbon fiber and perfect for tourism. When fully extended it remains in place and never moved the slightest bit while doing 25-second long exposure shots. My only complaint is the fact that, being 5'11, the monopod is far short to use. However, my primary use for it is as a tripod. The CAME-TV Q66C has what I want being an amateur, fitting the budget, and traveling frequently.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds my 4x5 large format camera just fine! What a GREAT tripod this is! It's very light. (I usually use very heavy tripods.) It's very adjustable. (My latest tripod has been a video tripod, so it doesn't have individually angle-adjusting legs, like this tripod has.) I like the fact that the center column goes up and down. I haven't tried to mount a camera hanging from the center column yet, because I just got this little tripod, and I haven't been using it yet. All I did so far is mount my Sony A77 on it and I tried my Toyo 4x5 medium format studio view camera on it. My plan is to pack this tripod inside my backpack. (It needed to be light and compact for this.) It fits into my backpack quite easily. I also plan to use a large format field camera on it, and since it can hold my studio view camera, I think it will handle a light field camera just fine. Just like any other small, light tripod, I would not leave a camera on it and walk away on a very windy day. That would just be a stupid move. Other than that, I have no problem with this little tripod. It is easy to set up and put away, and I haven't had any problems with it so far. (I haven't had it long . . . just two days.) It seems very sturdy. The ball head is as good as any ball head I've ever used, and while I'm new to Arca style quick releases, I like the one on this ball head. I've attached my Bogen (Manfrotto) quick release plate, to use my many hexagonal plates, but I plan to get a couple more Arca style plates, so I can keep them mounted on things, like another ball head, a small camera, and a lens collar. I like that this tripod has a 3/8 mount for ball heads, just in case I decide to change the ball head or add a leveling plate between the tripod and the ball head. I also like that I can remove the quick release on this ball head and replace it with a different quick release, like the Manfrotto/Bogen hexagonal quick release that I normally use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile This is a very versatile tripod. It checked all the boxes I needed for something inexpensive. It is carbon fiber, includes a ball head, collapses very small, and has most features of the more expensive ones. It also has the bonus to take one leg off and use it as a monopod. The only thing that could have been better was if it had been in stock. (Obviously, my expectations for B&H are really high.) But, it cams as expected, about 2 week after order. It was worth the wait, so if you want one, plan ahead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality at an affordable price Amateur photographer starting to do a lot of travel and needed a light, strong tripod / monopod to lug round. The Q66c fits the bill. Fits easily in the suitcase and not a bulky unit even with the included ball head. In addition, the price was within my budget.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is not a high quality Tripod This is the first item that I have purchased from B and H that has not be totally excellent. This tripod a few critical flaws that made me return it. For the record, B and H 's return process is great and very timely. The tripod leg locking system was not reliable. Some of the leg's sections required more force to secure than the others. Also, the tripod's legs were not the same length. They were off slightly and would not allow my camera to be level when the legs were fully extended. When I attached my Canon 7D and Zoom lens, the legs were bending and I did not feel that I could walk away from the tripod to get another lens without the entire tripod and camera system falling. The tripod was a carbon fiber assembly and was rated to hold my camera and zoom lens with capacity to spare. That was not the case. The head did not have a smooth pan or tilt action. The only reason for giving it a 1 Star Rating was for B and H 's Customer Support.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is what it is #1. I am spoiled. My Primary Tripod is a Gitzo medium weight tripod. It came with a decent head, which I replaced with a RRS huge ball head. The only issue I have with it, is that it is medium weight. I kind of wish I had bought a heavy weight and then a light weight traveler. So I bought this tripod. #2. Summery, this is a small lightweight cost effective (cheap?) tripod with a small lightweight head. The max support is a blatant lie. Most tripods list Max weight as the maximum camera/lens weight you would want to use. You drop this number by 10% and you have a VERY stable platform. In this case, I don't think someone decided that the max weight is the max weigh the tripod would support before breaking if the tripod was setup in the most solid way. The height is good for me (6'1 I stoop a little to make it work.) when completely extended, but there is a problem. It isn't really stable. The leg locks work, but the locks to the head are problematic on mine. This is the best type of leg lock, but because this is a cheap tripod, the implementation is poor. You will never get this tripod back into the bag once you unbag it. I don't think companies save very much by making the packing bags in a way that they only work for original shipping and not for actual use, but they do. Plan on buying a new bag if you pack your gear in bags. #3. It doesn't do what I need. I use a D7000 and my walking around lens is a 28-300 professional lens, my macro is a 105mm. This tripod wasn't made for this weight of camera, running a slow shutter speeds. The physical movement of the shutter shakes everything. I keep this tripod because I need something for taking time-lapse with the smart phone. And ad negative as this review is, I will recommend this small lightweight cost effective tripod with a lightweight head. It is a lot better than the small cheap tripod I bought my nephew a couple years ago.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Tripod Nice, but a bit difficult to setup. I love the small size & light weight, also it offers a lot of flexibility, but making use of that flexibility takes time & effort. I have not tried the monopod setup yet & probably won't, as I have a mono which I like. I would recommend for it's size & flexibility just be forewarned about setting it up
