Customer Review

on April 8, 2011
So far, this tripod seems to be everything I had hoped it would be. I bought it to replace a flimsy $15 tripod that broke after a year. This one looks like it's going to last.

I'm an occasional photographer -- very much an amateur. But I've found that using a tripod produces a huge improvement in the quality of my landscape shots.

I'm happy with the Tracker's stability, although it doesn't, actually, feel more stable than the flimsy model it replaced. The construction seems to be quite sturdy.

The most important thing I wanted was a 6 foot tripod height. The first day I had the tripod out, I took a number of shots of a full moon. It's extremely awkward to do this sort of thing with a 5 foot tripod because you have to bend down to sight up through the camera. The Vanguard Tracker was very comfortable to use. If you intend to photograph items above head level, (like the moon or birds or clouds) a 6 foot tripod saves a lot of effort.

So far, the weight of the tripod ( 10 pounds) doesn't seem to be an issue. The legs have some foam padding on them so it's easy to sling the tripod over the shoulder. The same foam makes it comfortable to just pick the thing up and carry it.

i would definitely recommend this tripod to a friend.
