As in the title.

This deals appeared once nearly a year ago (if I remember correctly) and sold out fairly quickly - I bagged myself one. The Red Snapper tripods are quite highly rated, my was very good, too. The included carry bag is great, I wouldn't be surprised if the bag alone were sold for some 15-20 quid in Jessops or Curry.

The only thing to be aware of is DO NOT unscrew the segments completely when you want to extend the leg 'cause the segment may be detached from the leg. Re-fitting it to the leg is a bit tricky and that involves a small plastic piece that is fragile. I broke one of these pieces (NOT the tripod segment/leg) and got the replacement from the company.

Btw, their customer service is excellent, very personal, quick and efficient.

Having bought Red Snapper products I have to say that they are of the best quality and value for money. Don't expect standards you would get from the likes of a £20 argos special - look more towards Manfrotto quality for half the price!

This is a very good price for very good equipment.

Hot from me - why on earth is this cold?

Looks very sturdy

Got a Red Snapper Tripod with Ball Head..great tripods and very sturdy indeed.

This is actually hot for those who know about tripods etc... I paid that price for a redsnapper tripod and ball head so £49.95 for Tripod and 3-way head is very good!

HOT! I need a monopod though

HOT got it last time it was on offer!! excellent... lives in my car now!

The 283 has 3-segment legs, the 284 has 4-segment legs, everything else is the same. Theoretically the 3-segment should be a bit more sturdy but I have never heard any problem about the 284. Practically the 284 will be shorter retracted.

Cheers.

PS: COULD COLD-VOTERS EXPLAIN WHY YOU VOTED THIS COLD? Many users have confirmed that the tripod is of very high quality, and the kit is great value for money. Customer service is excellent, too.

many thanks..will be going for one. when you put your £1500 dslr kit 4 feet above ground on a windy rocky surface , u want ur tripod to work.. these few quids above the hama tripods will be well worth..

RS-284 and RSH-12 ballhead ordered for £102. These come very highly regarded. Anyone want to by the 3-way head?
