    Davis & Sanford PROVISTA6510 reviews

    ProVista 6510 Aluminum Tripod with V10 Fluid Head (65mm Bowl) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Near Miss I bought this product in favor of the similar Bescor model. Two things made me purchase this one instead: first, this is a fluid head, and I want that range of motion. I need smooth tilts and pans, and you're on safer ground with a fluid head, which the Provista has. Second, a found a comment in the Bescor that was similar to my experience: out of the box I broke a lever trying to disengage the quick-release plat. That it happened to someone else confirmed that there is a problem with manufacture and design of the Bescor. So, I ordered the ProVista. I found it to be stable at one stage release. No tripod under $$ is going to give you stability with two stages released--let's be real. So it's stable at one stage, no complaints. The quick release plate worked fine: popped right off. Unfortunately, the quick release plate was full of lubricating goo underneath. I spent a lot of time cleaning it. I bought this tripod for the head--so let me cut to the chase. While the tilt control is a dream, the pan is a nightmare. There is simply no way to overcome the initial jerk it takes to get this head panning. With the tensioner completely disengaged there's still so much stiffness that you cannot move this thing without jerking it. In the end, you want three things from a tripod: stability, smooth tilt, and smooth pan. This thing is dicey with one, great with the other, and stinks at the third. Hate to say it because I want to encourage manufacturers to build $$ and below tripods for the new lightweight HD cameras, but I would walk away from this one--I'm returning mine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't beat the price We are the Digital Media/Broadcasting PTE program in our district and for entry level classes we use this tripod because you can't find a better deal on a ball-head tripod. Although the unit isn't as rugged as we'd like given the price we can afford to replace any we may lose. (8 are in use). This gives the students a stepped up experience so they're not working with purely consumer level DSLR/Video tripods.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value & Performance I Could Hope For I'm not exaggerating when I say that I was shocked at the quality of this tripod, especially compared to the low price. I would easily have expected this to cost over twice what I paid for it.Although I bought it primarily as a still photo support, needing a ball leveling head for speedy setup, I was very pleased to find that the tilt and pan action on the head was as smooth as any I've experienced since my $ Oconnor fluid head that I operated many years ago. Everything I've bought since that was advertised as fluid head' was anything but fluid. The ProVista, on the other hand, I could very easily recommend for video production as well as still photography.The ProVista has everything I wanted in a tripod and more. The ball leveling is fast and secure, the quick release plate snaps securely back in place with hassle, the legs extend smoothly and lock firmly, and the construction is good quality and sturdy enough to comfortably support my Nikon D810.I wish all products had the features, quality, and low price of this tripod.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent lightweight tripod Needed a lighter weight tripod for a job to which we flew. Looked at the 7518 but chose the 6510 to save a few dollars. Mounted a canon XA10 and monitor. V10 head is basic but did the job since we were in lockdown for most of the shots. Did notice that the lockdown lever causes a slight shift of position when tightened. Ball head on the 6510 works as advertised and is easily accessed. Sticks are stable enough with only slight wiggle in the longer third section. Plastic clips to lock the legs do not inspire confidence so need a delicate touch. Carrying bag is quite nice. Have not seen the 7518 or any of the magnus tripods to compare, but for the money, the 6510 did the trick for us.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturdy but quick release could be better Not a bad Tripod for the price, the quick release gets stuck so I would recommend buying a different head for it as well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice tripod for the money; won't replace a Manfrotto 546B Nice tripod for the money. Not going to replace a Manfrotto MVH502A Fluid Head and 546B Tripod System, but works nicely as a backup or a secondary camera tripod in those kind of settings.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good tripod for the money This tripod is not perfect, but it is a great value. While I have not used these sticks for very long they feel well made and very solid. I echo other critiques in that the pan is not as smooth as I would like, but mine is still very usable. My only other negative is that the bubble level was not leveled properly. This is not a big deal as my camera has an artificial horizon which made finding level much easier. If this was a $ dollar tripod I would not be happy, but for the price I am thrilled.
