    A good purchase for an amateur photographer

    Good buy, easy to use, easy to store without damage (to the future) thanks to the included storage bag. Easy to adjust thanks to the two built-in spirit levels. Can be set in different heights due to the adjustable legs. For the fine adjustment I use the stepless fine adjustment with the crank (tube in the middle of the leg that can be turned up and down). I've used it several times throughout the day and I must say that I find it very useful.

    In all haste I wanted to buy a nice and solid tripod for not too much money, mainly for star photography. In Given my impatient nature, I was looking for an online store that accepted and processed orders until late at night. That's how I came across Coolblue during my search.

    Now I was advised by a friend to take a slightly sturdier tripod. In all my stubbornness I therefore decided to purchase the HAMA star 63 instead of the HAMA star 61. The bigger brother of the HAMA star 61. Literally the big brother, because the only thing that differs is the working height.

    Literally 10 minutes after placing the order I received an email stating that my order has been collected. Thank you employees, I'll drink a pot of coffee to your work ethic! So they weren't kidding that you could order until 11:59 PM.

    The playing can start, after literally a night's sleep I had the tripod in my hands. Shipping went well and as far as I could see the package was treated like porcelain from the warehouse to my door, no damage whatsoever.

    At first impression, the tripod feels good, aluminum legs with plastic stoppers. The cheapest plastic has not been used and that adorns this tripod within its price range. Unfolding the tripod will be difficult the first time. However, after unfolding it a few times, this runs smoothly. The legs themselves are sturdy and do not slide away quickly, if this does happen, you can weight the tripod by means of the hook at the bottom of the tripod.
    Extending the legs is easy and lifting the plastic head is smooth.

    Then we arrive at the head of the tripod. It contains a quick release plate (!) which works very nicely. Moving the head goes from stiff to loose without really an intermediate step, this makes the tripod less suitable for, for example, videographers who want to make a gradual movement with the head. It's not a problem for me, though, because it needs to be as fixed as possible without moving while taking photos. And the tripod does this surprisingly well. It does mean to me that when I want to shoot videos (which I do) on this tripod that I have to make an extra investment in this. This may be an area for improvement for HAMA. However, it is more than sufficient for this price range and I can't really complain.

    When the tripod is at full height, it only suffers from movement when there is a strong wind. This will be less with more expensive tripods. The maximum height is also ideal for me as I am 2 meters tall. Photo 4 shows the tripod under a door frame of 2.10 meters by way of illustration.

    In addition, you also get a carrying bag and the tripod is fairly compact. This product has surprised me, and I am only too happy about it.

    Attached are a few photos. The first photo was taken without a tripod, the second and third photos are the first photos taken with a tripod. After taking these pictures I realized that this really was a great investment.

    I can't wait to go into the countryside and shoot pictures of the stars with my tripod without light pollution of the city!

    • stable
    • light
    • compact
    • high
    • difficult to set up

    this tripod is great, it is very light and with the carrying bag you can increase it to anywhere.
    it is very stable and there is also a spirit level, so you can see if it is straight. It is a bit inconvenient via flaps to unfold it. But price-quality this tripod is super. you can also slide it out very eye. i.e. he is just great!

    even better with customization!
    • Weight
    • Large maximum length
    • simplicity
    • Bit large minimum length

    A light tripod, easy to set up and stable when shooting, however, occasionally when turning it would wobble a bit, I have now put a weight under it and can now do what I want with it without any problems. Great tripod! I actually only took it because of price and length. don't regret it, for this price you wouldn't expect this.

    Very satisfied
    • easy to set up
    • user friendly
    • very low price

    For this price you should certainly not hesitate. Have had this tripod for 3 weeks now and have used it extensively. Very easy to set up and clean up. Thanks to the build-in spirit level, you can easily set it up and adjust it.

    Can do everything, weak head
    • Price
    • Many useful features
    • Weak head for dslr

    Can do "everything", costs little.
    My dslr (nikon d5200) is too heavy for the plastic fantastic head, it is too unstable. When touched, you see the camera vibrate. Fine for short shutter speeds, not for evening shots, I glued it on, works well now, unfortunately it can no longer be used in portrait mode.

    A professional look
    • level
    • hook
    • user friendly
    • sensitive to scratches

    I was already warmed by the many positive reviews I read here. So a purchase was not delayed. Neatly delivered the next day. I was kicking with impatience. And whether, I'm very happy with it! Highly recommended, The hook on the tripod is easy to hang your bag on. The tripod always stands well thanks to the spirit level! The tripod is just fun to use. It's really professional if you come up with this, but nice as an amateur :-) The tripod is indeed a bit sensitive to scratches but yes... I'll gladly take that with you! If you want to buy a tripod and don't want to spend too much, don't hesitate to buy it!

    Ideal for beginners
    • Lightweight
    • High adjustable
    • Easy to transport
    • blows over
    • Not very sturdy

    I've been using the tripod for over a year now. He still works perfectly! I mainly use it to shoot videos and photos with my Canon Eos 700D.

    It works great for the price. However, it is so light that when you unfold it at chest height and there is a lot of wind, it threatens to blow over.

    It doesn't feel very sturdy either, but it has lasted for over a year now and nothing is broken. I am always careful with my stuff.

    But for a beginner I would definitely recommend it! Because the price/quality ratio is absolutely perfect!

    cheap is expensive
    • Cheap
    • light
    • unstable
    • head is cumbersome
    • cleaning not possible

    Are you looking for a tripod as a starting hobby photographer? Then skip this tripod.

    This tripod can only be used indoors. It shakes with every breath of wind, so all those beautiful long exposure photos will be out of focus.

    When used outdoors, you should also take into account that sand can get between the legs/locks/moving parts. Disassembly of the tripod is not possible, so cleaning is not possible either.

    After 5x use I decided to spend a little more money and bought a nice, solid travel tripod that I am very satisfied with.
