Velbon 200R overview

  • 1Description

This Sherpa 200R Tripod with PH-157Q 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head from Velbon supports up to 8.8 lb, measures 24.4" when folded, and includes a quick release plate. Its 3-section legs each feature flip locks for fast deployment, and can be positioned for a minimum height of 23.5" to a maximum height of 53.0", or 65.9" with its push-and-pull, rapid center column fully raised. To further enhance stability on a wide variety of surfaces, each leg includes a rubber foot.

Cameras, sport optics, or camcorders that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the quick release plate, which is secured to the tripod's pan-and-tilt head using a quick release cam lock. The head can be rotated 360°, tilted 60° backwards, 90° forwards, or 90° sideways for portrait orientation. Both the 360° rotation as well as the backward or forward tilt movements function simultaneously and can be set in place using the pan bar's integrated twist lock. When changing from a landscape to portrait orientation, the sideways tilt can be independently adjusted and secured.

    Velbon 200R reviews

    Sherpa 200R Tripod with PH-157Q 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rank amateur says: it's great It's the only tripod I've ever had but I'm thoroughly pleased. I guessed that the very inexpensive tripods would be less awesome. I don't know but my Canon 3ti sits very securely. The clamps for the telescoping legs seem appropriately engineered, not too flimsy, not overkill. Rubber feet are great. The panning motion is smooth. No carrying case, though. But I'm very happy with the tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy I use the tripod to anchor medium range (up to 300 mm.)telephotos and landscape lenses. It is an improvement over it's Velbon predecessor. It is more solid and works well. Leg locks have been improved. On the negative side,the head tightening mechanism requires a fair amount of torque to snug up the side-to-side rotation. It is a great tripod for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for young photographers I use this tripod in my middle school photography/video class. It is sturdy and durable with few moving parts. Not much that kids can break. They have held up for many years with students who are learning how to use a tripod. Great product. I bought 15 of them!
