Sunpak 6601TM overview

  • 1Description

This 6601TM Tri-Monopod from Sunpak supports up to 4.4 lb, measures 21.8" when folded, and includes a three-way, pan-and-tilt head with quick release plate. Its 3-section legs each feature flip locks for fast deployment, and can be positioned for a minimum height of 21.7" to a maximum height of 47.1", or 58.0" with its column fully raised. The push-and-pull column enables rapid height adjustments and an integrated center brace allows the legs to be spread simultaneously as well as uniformly, which include rubber feet with a twist-out, metal spikes to further enhance stability on a wide variety of surfaces, including soft and uneven soil.

Cameras, lenses, or camcorders that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the quick release plate. It is secured to the pan-and-tilt head using a cam lock and features its own bubble level. The head can be rotated 360°, and tilted 90° backwards or forwards, as well as sideways for portrait orientation. Each of these three movements function independently of each other and can be locked into place.

For added versatility, the column serves to house a 5-section monopod with a rubber foot that is attached to the base of the pan-and-tilt head. When removed from the tripod's column, the monopod and the head support up to 4.4 lb and measures 17.8" while folded. The monopod consists of five sections, which utilize a single twist lock within its base for rapid deployment, and with the pan-and-tilt head, can be positioned for a minimum height of 15.8" to a maximum height of 61.4".

An additional quick release plate is provided, enabling easy substitution of multiple cameras, lenses, or camcorders with the 6601TM Tri-Monopod.

    Sunpak 6601TM reviews

    6601TM Tri-Monopod with 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 57.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight flexible way 4 long exposure The good: Built quality is very nice for the price of the unit, the handle has a slight drag to it for a smoother turning(useful for video). The rubber and pin base workd great, monopod have a great height adjustment(up to about 6ft) The bad: The whole head assemble is screw onto the top of the monopod unit, with the panning screw lock down you can accidentally loosen the whole head assembly by turning it and dropping the camera. Easy fix is to use a locktite/threadlocker glue on the bolt. Monopod are kind of flexy but i am not complaint for the price i paid

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far So Good Traditionally the 2001UT is my go-to tripod. I've never found a need for a fancy tripod, so the $ sunpak special was always attractive as a tripod I didn't have to particularly worry about damaging or losing. One downside, though, was its height. I wanted a Sunpak that was a little higher without adding the stupid crank that Sunpak seems to think is a good idea. (Why is this necessary? it's 8 million times harder to crank the center column up than to just pull)So far ths 6601TM is a great upgrade from the 2001UT -- same build, and a little built taller. The monopod is a nice feature, but i haven't found it useful yet.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would NEVER Recommend! I carry it around in my tote since it's not heavy & small enough especially you can take out the monopad but... be warned. The head of it came apart from the aluminum body while I was using it (I had my camera on it), almost droppped my camera! I bought this tripod/monopad combo in April and now it is broken. I glued the head back but it may break again and I may not catch my camera if that happens so i ended up throwing it out. Beware of this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from convenient, sturdy, affordable... I had done quite a but of research online before finally deciding to purchase the 6601TM Tripod/Monopod and I am definitely happy with the outcome! When I began my search all I knew was that I needed something cheap (I'm a college student), sturdy (I'm using it to shoot a documentary in India, and easy to use. The quick release plate makes all the difference when you capture a shot quickly hand-held and the latches on the legs contract and extend smoothly and with one quick motion of the hand. I especially appreciate the lightness of the tripod/monopod because when I'm traveling those extra pounds make a big difference. I use the tripod/monopod primarily for video (Canon Rebel T2i) and so the smooth pan/tilt is a big plus for me. Overall, I would definitely recommend this piece of equipment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's not QUITE amazing... I'm an amateur photographer with something of an affinity for panoramas and HDR photography which necessitates a tripod. In addition, I do a lot of wandering around which means my equipment has to be light and compact. After looking around, I settled on this because it seemed to be the best balance between portability, cost, and versatility. It's easy to carry hiking due to its low weight and is small enough that it can be strapped underneath a backpack without interference. It feels sturdy and I imagine it can support a good deal more than its rated capacity. Lastly, the locking mechanisms for the legs and overall smooth function (including separation of the monopod) are very easy to use. It does have some negative aspects. For one, a lot of the joints and the locks on the legs are made of plastic. I worry down the road that these may get damaged or outright broken. As others have also noted, the head isn't particularly fluid as described, but is far more than efficient for photography. The quick release plate must be removed from the tripod to install on the camera which can be something of a nuisance especially if you're in a hurry. Overall for the price I am quite satisfied with this. I can't imagine they get much better than this without spending 5 to 30 times the amount of money. It's a good deal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product for the price I bought this tripod a couple of months back.. wanted a sturdy tripod for my DSLR(earlier one wasnt able to hold the weight of the camera once the heavier lens were mounted) and found this one to be sturdy and well balanced.. perfect fit for the pocket

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for. I got this tripod to supplement my very small Panasonic handheld camcorder. For the price that is paid, it can be said that the tripod does its job well. Portability is one of the main benefits, as it can compact into a nice size for a hiker's backpack (which has worked great for my hiking trips). The strength of the construction seems to be alright, although I haven't put the tripod to any extreme test. The monopod function is not as handy as the manufacturer makes it out to be, although it can make for a poor man's steadycam with some slight modification. The fluid effect head is a down-right disappointment. There is not anything fluid about it. For this price it can't be expected to have nice, smooth movement, but since it is being advertised as fluid effect I had hoped it would do better than the other tripods in the price range. Movement is very reliant on adjustment by the user, and I still cannot achieve a good balance of vertical and horizontal smoothness without a starting snag whenever I begin a pan. This is a good tripod for travel and photography, but maybe not so much for making videos with a light camcorder.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tripod/monopod for the price! This item is a great value for what we paid $ It looks nice and has 2 heads so we can both have our cameras ready to go. The monopod feature is easy to take and go. It is extremely extendable/adjustable. The only drawback is that the monopod can be a bit flimsy when it is completely extended. However I am short and don't need it that long, so it's just perfect for me! I would recommend this to anyone.
