“ Hama Star 9 Light - Tripod „
I bought this tripod to use with my Fujifilm S100FD digital camera. I was origionally looking for a fairly basic tripod as I have not really used them before and didn't know just how much use I'd get out of it. So keeping price to a minimum was my first consern. Secondly was the fact that I was rushed to buy one as I was going away to Scotland and intended to take it with me four days or so later. So under the circumstances I opted for this one and unlike my usual routine of looking around comparing for weeks it was a pretty quick decision.
And as it turns out, not one of my better decisions. The whole body just feels flimsy, now I know it's meant to be light but c'mon. I was momentarily conserned when first putting my camera on top that it would collapse under it miniscule weight.
The head when raised fully wobbles all over the place in the slightest breeze. I foolishly tried taking a long shutter night shot which each time just resulted in a mass of blurred lights as the tripod wobbled in every direction even when used with a 10 second timer.
I would highly recommend spending that little extra money for something a lot sturdier and of better build quality. Look out in this space for my upcoming review of my new tripod (if/when I find it)
