    Velbon VIDEOMATE 638/F reviews

    Videomate 638 Aluminum Tripod is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect match for a small camcorder I bought two of these and use them with my Sonys CX760, XR520 and HX200 bridge cam. Setting up is a snap. Panning is remarkably smooth. This match of cam/tripod produces near pro results. However, because it is very light weight, it can move in steady wind. Where possible, using a wired remote on the cam is recommended.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement for videomate 607 I bought this model to replace the velbon videomate 607,this one is taller ad has rubber feet, I like it so far but the videohead has a little play . the old one doesnt have that problem

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very well made... good choice! very well made... the heavy geared center is excellent for getting the right height and the part that holds the camera has very smooth movement as to not vibrate.. really good tripod..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'll be purchasing another one for two camera shoots! Love this tripod. Smooth, fluid action, light weight and a price that can't be beat. What more can one ask for?
    Date published: 2017-03-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stop here. This is the tripod you're looking for If value for your money is what you're looking for then this is the one you want. This is the sweet spot for price and reliability. Lightweight, easy to use, lots of features. This is the one for me! I could start spending a lot more on a tripod and I could justify it in various ways. But I don't need to. It works equally well for cameras and camcorders. It's rated plenty high for heavier cameras. You can even mount a flash on there in a pinch.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good beginner Tripod Great tripod for beginners. The fluid head is amazingly smooth with no jerkiness even with very quick starts and stops. I got this to video soccer games. My only issue is that you can’t lock the legs into different positions if you would want a smaller foot print. I have not had any issues with the feet sliding when I keep it narrow but it would be nice to have this feature. Other than that I would recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love that fluid pan head - works great! The tilt and pan work very smoothly, no backlash, no sticking and the tripod is quite stable except when I accidentally kick it (I have to stop doing that). �I use it with a camcorder so I am always panning and tilting and it is just as good as my old Velbon tripod. �It is a great buy for modern camcorders.
    Date published: 2017-12-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great budget tripod best I've seen for the money. This is not the best tripod out there, but it has a smooth pan/tilt & works for my needs. It's in a sound booth with a camcorder on it to record/stream church services. Glad I bought it!
