    Smith-Victor Propod V reviews

    Propod V Large Tripod with Pro-5 2-Way Head is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Argh! Good Tripod - Poor Quality Head. I bought this tripod because my old Gitzo tripod struggles to handle the weight of my prosumer camcorder. I am finding this Smith Victor Tripod to be totally frustrating. While the tripod is sturdy and reliable, the fluid head is falling apart. The tilt movement lock knob has completely fallen apart. The center column has a jerky motion when initiating either a panning or tilting motion. When you are panning and tilting at the same time, it magnifies the jerky motion. I strongly recommend against the purchase of the Smith-Victor Propod V.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good Boat Anchor I hoped to use this tripod as a quick field setup for indi films, commercials & industrials. The head is garbage. A lot of slop & absolutly no fluid compensation. The twist & turn leg locks are a pain b/c they either lock up or spin inside eachother (kinda like those cheap worklights from the Depot) & they also have a tendancy to slip. After way too many months of trying to tweak it I finally just retired it to holding my 7 field monitor. That's about all this tripod os good for.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great entry level tripod It really is a great tripod for the money. It has a good weight and handles a full sized 20 pound camera with ease. Be sure to firmly tighten the legs when extended as they tend to slip. If you want a Vinten experience fork over an extra $1,000, but if you want a funtional, no frills, get it done piece of equipment for under $300 this is your stop.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from GOOD PROPOD A tripod STABILITY WITH A VERY GOOD, BUT EASILY LOSE YOUR SUPPORT RUBBER, do not lose jejejeje, LAX HEAD A LITTLE TIME TO WORK, BUT works great, NOW I'M USING THE CAMERA WITH EOS 7D, WITH LENS SERIES L, by which means a considerable weight of OVER 2 KGS. GENTLY and handles, as indicated in the pan MOVES A LITTLE BUT IS IN SOFT TILDEO, HE RECORDED WITH SOME TRUE EVENTS SHOWS HOW EASY, THE VIDEOS ARE VERY GOOD AND DEVELOP THE WEIGHT IS AMAZING, ITS 4 KGS, WHAT MAKES POWERFUL FROM STRONG WINDS. We therefore recommend acquired it for having a big budget NOT AS I decided to buy THE BEST OF THE MARK.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pure Garbage Worst tripod EVER. Worked for about 3 gigs and went south afterward. The adjustment screws stripped when trying to adjust levels/ legs and never worked after that. It was basically a bipod. The head is cheap plastic and was never able to adjust properly after a few uses. Eventually the head came completely off and because it's cheap plastic, it could never be replaced. This BIPOD currently sits in a landfill. Looking for a deal, next time I'll spend a little extra money and get my money's worth. Word to the wise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value Tripod I purchased this tripod to use for interviews and how to videos. Considering the price, I'm totally pleased with the sturdy construction, the ease of assembly, and the smooth panning and tilt. It would be great if this tripod came with a carry case, but my wife is pretty handy with a sewing machine and she made me a one-of-a-kind case, so it's all good!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Propod V Pro 5 head not very fluid for either pan or tilt. Tripod itself is rather sturdy though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Propod Properly Positions Picture The Propod V Tripod is inexpensive, lightweight and easy to use. This is the first professional grade tripod that I have owned and I feel I made the right choice. I highly recommend it!
