    Sima STV-42E reviews

    STV-42E 42" Economy Series Weekender Panorama Aluminum Tripod with Pan/Tilt Head is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits the balance between light weight and reasonable build Needed the lightest functional tripod available, this fits the bill. Of course for $20, it's not going to survive rough handling and last forever, but it's pretty good. Here are the measured specs, you can compare them against the published values: weight: 15 5/8 oz. Folded length: 14 1/4. Fully extended height: 41 1/2. Minimum height: 14. Construction: aluminum legs and tripod stabilizer, the rest is plastic. Stabilizer is attached with aluminum 'pop rivets', if these ever come loose, you can replace using tool from your hardware store. Tripod head has 3 degrees of freedom, reasonably smooth movement, and you can lock all movement directions. The detachable quick release camera mount is really useful, allows quick attachment to your camera before mounting on the tripod. Flip lock levers on legs makes setup/takedown really quick. Comes with a lightweight nylon bag with attached carrying string. This little tripod mimics the features of a 'regular' tripod, but with an economy build quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good travel tripod Arrived super fast, item was as expected. Its small and light, just what I need for a back packing trip It can hold my D80 with 300mm zoom no problem, I wouldn't trust it on a windy day though. Seems well made, leg locks fastens tight, for how long? will just have to wait and see. Smallest part of the leg seems flimsy. Overall very happy for the price.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to handle Lightweight and solid construction, but.. Never even thought that tripod locks might be a problem until I got this one. Very hard to put in place and lock securely, the whole lock thing just seem a poor fit. It took me good 10 minutes to set it up while I set up my previous one in 1-2.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for the serious photographer You get what you pay for. I wasn't willing to pay big money for a tripod right now. Lots of plastic, haven't broken anything yet, but I know that is in the not-too-far-distant future.
