Tripods are an essen­tial and con­ve­nient device that helps us cre­ate high-qual­i­ty pho­tos or set addi­tion­al light­ing in var­i­ous con­di­tions and sit­u­a­tions. In this short review, I will try to tell you about all the func­tion­al­i­ty and capa­bil­i­ties of an inex­pen­sive tri­pod from Ando­er under the TTT-663N mark­ing. We will also con­sid­er what is includ­ed in the basic pack­age, and what can be pur­chased for an addi­tion­al fee com­plete with a tri­pod.

Packaging and equipment

The prod­uct comes in a reg­u­lar brand­ed card­board box. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, I have not pre­served it, but there is noth­ing remark­able in it, the box is quite soft. How­ev­er, every­thing came to me with­out dam­age. Inside the box is the tri­pod itself, pre-packed in a spe­cial fab­ric case. Thanks to a spe­cial strap, the tri­pod in the case can be con­ve­nient­ly car­ried both on the shoul­der and on the back.

Transformation and adjustment

The tri­pod is a clas­sic tri­pod with four sec­tions on each leg to increase the over­all length of the tri­pod. The length of the tri­pod when fold­ed is 480 mil­lime­ters, but the min­i­mum height with­out exten­sion of addi­tion­al sec­tions is 455 mil­lime­ters.

At the end of each of the “legs” there is a spe­cial rotat­ing tip that will help you set up the tri­pod, both on flat sur­faces and out­doors on var­i­ous uneven sur­faces.

Each of the retractable sec­tions of the “legs” is fixed with a spe­cial plas­tic latch. Thus, you can set the height of the tri­pod you need.

It should also be not­ed the pres­ence of spe­cial inserts made of a mate­r­i­al sim­i­lar to dense foam rub­ber. This is very con­ve­nient, espe­cial­ly in the cold sea­son, when it is unpleas­ant to take on the bare met­al of a tri­pod at low ambi­ent tem­per­a­tures.

The next posi­tion of the tri­pod, after the base one, when one sec­tion of the “leg” is extend­ed, its height leaves 710 mil­lime­ters from the floor or the ground to the high­est edge on which the cam­era or oth­er equip­ment is mount­ed.

Fur­ther, it is pos­si­ble to set the tri­pod to a height of 970 or 1215 mil­lime­ters using addi­tion­al retractable sec­tions.

When unfold­ing the tri­pod, you also need to remem­ber to fix it with a spe­cial latch, which, after lock­ing, pre­vents the tri­pod from fold­ing.

To increase the max­i­mum height, you can use the exten­sion of the spe­cial cen­tral sec­tion, you can extend the sec­tion by rotat­ing the spe­cial lever. In this case, the max­i­mum tri­pod height will become equal to 1465 mm, how­ev­er, I will imme­di­ate­ly note that I almost nev­er use a tri­pod in this posi­tion, since I con­sid­er this posi­tion to be extreme­ly unsta­ble for use with a SLR cam­era.

Also, if you need to even­ly install a tri­pod with a cam­era, you can use a small water lev­el, which is installed on the tri­pod body.

To mount a cam­era or oth­er equip­ment on a tri­pod, you need to remove a small plat­form with a stan­dard screw. Thanks to a spe­cial lock, the plat­form is removed and installed very quick­ly, and most impor­tant­ly, it is con­ve­nient.

Using the main han­dle of the tri­pod, you can rotate the cam­era around its axis by 360 degrees, and you can also set the desired ver­ti­cal tilt angle. Once the cam­era is set at the desired angle, it can be fixed by tight­en­ing the appro­pri­ate screws.

If nec­es­sary, you can also adjust the angle of the cam­era, as shown in the pho­to below, but, to be hon­est, I have nev­er used this func­tion in real con­di­tions.

Also, some­times on the street with a strong wind, you need to load the tri­pod by hang­ing an addi­tion­al weight on a spe­cial hook. I usu­al­ly hang my back­pack on it. In the pho­to, pure­ly for exam­ple, I hung a bag from the cam­era.

In gen­er­al, I will say that the tri­pod is def­i­nite­ly worth the mon­ey, it is much bet­ter than mod­els with a price of up to $ 20. I am not afraid to use a tri­pod with my cam­era, it seems to me reli­able and con­ve­nient. How­ev­er, on the street in the wind, I try not to move away from the tri­pod when shoot­ing. Still, with a strong gust of wind, the tri­pod can tip over, so extra care when using with expen­sive equip­ment does not hurt. I can safe­ly rec­om­mend the tri­pod for pur­chase, it is real­ly a good and inex­pen­sive mod­el. Well, that’s all, you can find more inter­est­ing reviews and selec­tions on my blog site.
