Overview

Our take on the Velbon Sherpa 600R

Need a versatile tripod that lets you position your camera low to the ground or at full standing height? Velbon's Sherpa 600R features three-section telescopic legs that can extend the tripod to almost five and a half feet tall. You can also fold up the legs and remove the center column to get stability at just 11-7/16" high. Shoot portraits of your subjects standing at full height, or get down low for macro shots of a flower or bug. Plus, each section of the aluminum legs locks in place easily with a lever to ensure a stable platform for your camera.

Plus, each section of the aluminum legs locks in place easily with a lever to ensure a stable platform for your camera.

The joystick-style grip lets you tilt your camera up or down, or smoothly pan your camera across a scene. Or you can lock both the pan and tilt movements with one twist when you're done making adjustments. The handle is even mounted on the left, which lets you keep your right hand free to operate your camera.

You can screw the included quick-release plate into the threaded tripod socket of your camera and leave it in place. That way, you can quickly attach and detach your camera from the tripod, so you'll be ready for unexpected photo opportunities when they come up. If you already have a favorite tripod head, or want to use a Velbon professional ball head, you can easily remove the panhead and mount almost any tripod head in its place.
