Has anyone experienced using a Velbon DV7000 tripod. It's very very affordable. I'm thinking of mounting my Canon XL1 on it. Thanks.

[Ryan Santos] "Velbon DV7000 tripod. It's very very affordable. I'm thinking of mounting my Canon XL1 on it. Thanks. "

For a lock-down-and-walk-away,
or for panning and tilting?

There's a big difference in being able to "support 9.92 lbs." and being able to
smoothly operate a camera.

I've not run across a $100-range tripod with head that allows for pro shooting moves, especially if you zoom-in a bit.


Quote from Velbon PR (via B&H)-
"Be it fast-breaking news coverage or junior's first tooth, you'll be there and ready to cover the action with the solid, dependable support of the DV-7000."


I'm thinking that if this were supposed to be a pro tripod, they wouldn't be discussing shoooting "junior's first tooth" in the PR.
