Overall the Tripod sweet I nabbed a bird clear as day with the digital zoom on my New hdr-xr260v and it was rock solid for a subject 4 blocks away in a tree that's some crazy shot. I'm happy with it. The camcorder model not on the tripods compatible list but it has all the features and the VR remote works like a charm. Nice tripod Sony. HandyCam too
Excellent Tripod for the price

I have two Sony VCT-D680RM tripods, which preceded this tripod. Zoom control is very touchy and much improved on this model. Sony should produce an adapter for this tripod connection so it could be used with the tens of thousands of mini-dv camcorders still in use with LANC connections.

I use this with my HDR-PJ30 and absolutely love it!!!. I enjoy how you can slow or fast ZOOM and its a very sturdy tripod

Very easy to use. Very sturdy.
This tripod is very easy to use. Weather you're doing business presentation or a family gathering. Since I have a business in personal training having this tripod makes it easier to record classes & sessions especially with the remote on the tripod really makes recording easier. This is an excellent tool to have.

Small package, works as advertised. guide frame is neat
no focus / iris / exposure controls. zoom lacks mid speed switch
The remote integrates well into the handle. Nice packaging for most beginner use. I had no choice but to get this one since the guy at Sony Style store told me Sony doesn't make a remote only product for my CX550V. Shame really, the remote is nice, but the tripod doesn't do what I want it to do. Also I have a Manfrotto, so I rather not carry 2 tripods with me. Maybe I'll rip out this remote and strap it on the Manfrotto. Such a waste though. Wished they made a RM1BP equivalent for the handycams. I rather put $200 into a real remote instead of a walmart tripod with a dumbed down remote.
