    Videomate 538 Aluminum Tripod is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is a light duty tripod I previously owned a Velbon tripod which was really good, so I naturally assumed this one would be good too. Unfortunately the 538 is really light duty. I should have studied the weight of the tripod, it only weighs 4 lb in the box (with the carrying case). If you had a small compact camera it would be fine, but an SLR with a 200-300 mm lens, its too light duty. It says lightweight in the featured benefits, but light duty is only good with a really light camera!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy and useful I use this tripod with a small HD consumer video cam with a filmmaking class of HS students. It is durable and meets all of our needs the fluid head is nice and smooth.
