    Sony VCT-VPR1 reviews

    Compact Remote Control Tripod is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Remote but too light The remote works great, and despite other reviews, if you don't have a compatible (Sony) camera you just have to buy another adapter cable or 2. The head works well. My issue with it is that it is so light that panning requires two hands. One to pan the camera and the other to keep the tripod from tipping. Fortunately the remote pan arm can be removed and installed into a Magnus VPH-20. I still had my old heavy weight tripod, so I ordered a new head for it and now I have the best of both world. And get to have a light weight tripod for the DSLR, win win. None of the controls on the camera are in convenient spots for tripod use, so this saves the day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tripod - works as advertised Don't blame the tripod because you didn't do your homework or know how to use it. If your camera has a multi connector, it will work with it - I use it with my RX10, HX300 and my 2006 HDR-SR1 camcorder. Yes, it's lightweight, and yes you have to be mindful of how to use it, but I can carry it for hours unlike my heavy-duty tripod. Two hands needed for panning? I don't think so - try loosening the pan knob. It does exactly what a lightweight tripod should do, and the remote is awesome. And if it's just too petite for you, you can still use the remote with a bigger tripod.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better zoom control than I expected This is a basic tripod. It's sturdy enough for a little camera. I put my Sony a6300 on it. But what I really wanted it for was the zoom controller. I actually removed it and put it on a better tripod for my Sony a7s II. The zoom controller adds a variable zoom which works well on my Sony FE PZ 28-135mm lens. I first tried the other, little remote from Sony. But that one I returned when I realized it didn't offer a variable rocker. This zoom controller does. So now I get professionally looking zooms.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, fantastic service. We are based in London England; I mention this now because nobody in Europe had any stock of this item, and my experience in the past has been that B&H usually have what we need, sell at a fair price, and deliver fast. We know this product well, as we have another that we use often; if you have a Sony with a 'multi' connector this is a super quality tripod for a modest price. Note if your camera has an old style 10-pin LANC socket you can still use it by adding a converter cable Sony pn VMC-AVM1.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Handycam Tripod It is perfect fit for FDR-AX100 and does not take much space in my luggage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC PRODUCT JOHNAVATAR.com This is a fantastic product, though the tripod itself is a bit lightweight. I bought this to use with my Sony AX100 4K/UHD camcorder, which I also bought from B&H, which, BTW... B&H is fantastic themselves! LOVE B& H!:). YOU DON'T NEED A MULTI ADAPTER to use the remote that comes with this tripod, to use with the Sony AX100. I though you did from reviews on the internet I saw and ordered the dapper, but I didn't need it. The cable that comes with the remote connects right into the MULTI connector on the Sony AX100. This tripod and hand grip remote turns my Sony AX100 into a studio camera! I would rather have a much heavier tripod because this one is a bit thin and leightweight, but it still does work great! Any questions just ask me! JOHNAVATAR.com

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well with the Sony FDR-AX100 This is a pretty good tripod. It's very light weight... which is great for when hauling it around, but not quite as great if you want perfect shot stability in windy conditions. It has no weight hook, so in wind I recommend a tripod stone bag (what I have) or tripod sandbag weights to help keep the camera rock-steady. The remote control is awesome! Just make sure your camera supports the newer multi-interface plug (which the AX100 supports )and not Sony's older rounded crescent-shaped AV plug.... or it won't work. I dropped the score 1 star mainly because the quick shoe camera base-plate has kind of a small, non-threaded, flimsy, spring-loaded plastic pin (that inserts into the smooth 2nd hole on the bottom of the camera) that is supposed to help keep it from spinning around on the base-plate. It's a little too small in diameter for the hole and allows the camera a little side-to-side play it should not have when mounted on the tripod... at least it does on the AX100. The pin should also of been made of metal like the main mounting screw. Otherwise I really like this tripod!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Tripod I had a VCT870RM that broke recently after 13 years of use. Got this as a replacement. For some reason, I thought that this will be compatible with a NEX 5t. It isn't. So not being able to use the remote is a disappointing considering that it works with nex 3n and a6000. Maybe I will get a sony in the future with which I can use the remote. The build quality is ok and probably won't work with heavier setup a. I do miss the older set of tripods that were lighter and good build like the 870 and 1170. They were at a reasonable price as well. Not all my expectations were met but it is an ok tripod.
