Review Icon hgw139 reviewed Hama Star 63 in Tripods:
Tripod is excellent value for money and nothing wrong with it!

I have had this tripod for a while now and have struggled to find anything that is a major issue, yes there are a few things but not everything is perfect but then you remember the price so you can't complain. so the problems, STAY AWAY FROM SAND!!! it gets inside all the moving legs and scratches the metal and makes it stiff, you could say it is a bit too light so becomes slightly unstable on uneven surfaces but there is a hook at the bottom to hang weights on the last negative is that the legs are to wide so its hard to get close to things or get in a tight spot. It folds down a lot but still seems very chunky when folded it measures 66cm which doesn't sound a lot but it is.

I do like the detachable head which makes it a lot easier and quicker to remove and attach the camera. There are two spirit levels which are really helpful for landscapes, one is for base to check it is level when on uneven ground and the other for the camera itself. The tripod also enables you to take portrait photo's as the top of the tripod is lose and opens sideways holding the camera portrait. It comes with a carry bag which is nothing special just makes it slightly easier.

We've been using this paper with a Canon Pixma MP600 with outstanding results - as long as we use Canon ink. Had issues using non-OEM ink. Got it at a 2 for 1, so this represented good value as well. Very happy with the purchase and with Prime shipping, as always.

This is great paper for the cost. I had a bit of a hard time adjusting my printer settings using iPhoto but Aperture 2 did a great job with detailing exact photo resolution. I would recommend this to anybody that has good quality pictures (at least 8MP) that would like to print them out.

I used some Fuji Film brand glossy photo paper before I used these, and they turned out a bit reddish looking. When I printed using this paper, the pictures turned out with slightly less color, but very close to the original (note: I was scanning the originals first, so I assume that the minimal amount of color that was lost was done in the scanning process). That said, I got none of the reddish tinge that was there when using the Fuji brand. I imagine that my final result would be significantly closer to the original copy if I had been able to start with a digital image.

I think it is wise to use the brand of photo paper designed for that specific printer; it seems to have certainly helped the color out immensely in my situation, and I was very pleased with the end result as the pictures on this paper were very nice.

The paper is also quite thick and glossy. It would be hard to tell these weren't professionally printed.

The price on Amazon is significantly lower than that at my local Staples, so buying these here is a no brainer.

This product is pretty cheap and so it the quality. At least they are a pretty basic design. We've only used a couple of the frames.

The frame/coasters are as they look in the picture. I purchased 5 to make gifts for friends and some of them had marks on the wood (holder) part. Overall, they looked very nice and the girls loved them but I wish the holders were a bit more high quality.

WELL I MUST SAY I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THIS PAPER AND BUY IT OFTEN. WE DO SOME WEDDINGS AND WE USE THIS PAPER FOR MOST ALL OUR PRINTS. THE QUALITY IS VERY EXCEPTABLE, THE PRICE IS IN KEEPING WITH MOST PEOPLES BUDGET ALLOWING US TO GIVE THEM AN AMAZEING PHOTO ALBUM WITH MOSTLY ALL 8X10 PICTURES INSTEAD OF THE USUAL 4X6. WE ALSO DO 4X6 BUT WE USE THE PHOTO GLOSSY II PHOTO PAPER SO THE NEWLY WED COUPLE CAN FILL UP THEIR PHOTO ALBUMS WITH THE 4X6 SLOTS. WE WILL CONTINUE TO BUY THIS PAPER.

Pleased with the product, the vendor, the price...

BUT, THE PACKAGING WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO PREVENT THE PHOTO PAPER PACKAGE FROM BENDING.

PERHAPS NEEDS A STRONG CARDBOARD LINER
