Plastic junk – You get exactly what you pay for
Reviewed in the United States on August 23, 2018
I have purchase many AmazonBasics products in the past and was very satisfied with the quality of each of the items I received. The 60-inch lightweight tripod was an exception. After returning the first tripod because the head couldn’t be secured in place, I received a replacement tripod with the exact same problem. For all you photography buffs. If you try to mount a simple Canon SLR camera equipped with a 1lb Sigma Art lens in front of it, you will notice right away that the camera will tend to tilt forward, regardless of how hard you tighten the plastic knob.
I purchased this tripod in order to take night pictures of the Northern Light in Iceland. The AmazonBasic tripod was rendered useless to me when I realized that the tripod head couldn’t stay up right when my camera was mounted on it.
