5 out of 5 eggsGreat light tripod

Pros: Light weight, adjustability, ease of use, stability

Cons: Would be nice to be able to identify the quick release plates so you could purchase a couple to mount on camera #2; or a spotting scope etc for fast easy switching . There are no parts numbers provided so that makes this difficult.

1 out of 5 eggsZERO DOLICA CUSTOMER SUPPORT

Pros: Inexpensive, light weight.

Cons: I received mine with crooked/bent knobs. No biggie since there's warranty for it anyway. To my suprised, after emailing Dolica a few times to get a replacement knobs, they had zero response. They have zero product support!!!

5 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly exceeded my expectation

Pros: - Great price
- Nice build, even the carrying bag is very sturdy
- Carbon fiber legs with a very decent ball head, light weight with a lot of features
- Large adjustment knobs and easy to operate
- Standard size base threads, in case you want to switch to a different ball head

Cons: Can't really think of any, but...
- Some of the adjustment knobs on the head are a bit close together so in some cases the adjustment is a bit challenged, but that's similar to other brands on the market anyways.
- The angle leg lock is a bit tight and not smooth, you just have to make sure it's fully click in and secure before you set it on the ground otherwise it might slip with weight on top. Not a big deal with a bit of adjustment.
- The bubble level and the compass is kind of a joke, it just looks like one of those toys you find at the dollar store. I don't use it so I don't really care, if it doesn't look leveled, it probably isn't anyways.

Other Thoughts: At first I was a bit skeptic with all the features mentioned and the price it was selling, plus I can't find much info/review of this particular tripod on the internet. But I really needed one for the holidays to take some family pics and I have been shopping for one for the longest time already, so I took the plunge and said screw it why not. For less then $100 I can't really get anything nice out there anyways, especially with CF and ball head? Just forget about it.

Oh was I surprised, I mean, it's not as good as a $1000+ Gitzo, but with 1/10 of the price, it sure put a big smile on my face. I was really really amazed by the quality, maybe because I really wasn't expecting anything at all. I don't know how well of a beating it can take in a professional environment, but at least for me, who probably will only use it maybe less then 15 times a year, it's way more than enough for how little I pay.

p.s. I have a D90 with a 17-55 f/2.8 lense and a speedlight on, it's very sturdy

5 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly Sturdy

Pros: Great Value, Lightweight, Compact, Carry Case, Grips, Twist Locks

For about $100, you don't get much in the carbon fibre Tripod legs world. Let alone, a set of legs, and a ball head. To be honest, from the picture, I thought the ballhead looked terrible, but knowing that it was patterned off a gitzo model that was just as ugly, I figured it was worth a punt. This thing holds my d700, with 70-200mm 2.8 without any problems. The ballhead is shockingly good in just about every aspect. Once set up, with something hanging from the hook, I can tap on the end of my 70-200, and see no movement. With proper technique, you can get great results from this thing. I wouldn't use the really heavy glass on it, but for a day to day tripod, I think this thing is the ticket. It folds up small and light enough that you would never hesitate to bring it with you. And this is coming from a guy who hates tripods.

Cons: The lowest leg sections do get pretty narrow, so they don't inspire a ton of confidence. That would only be the case if you racked it out to full height however. I haven't used the extending centre column, and have no plans too, but I'm sure its gonna create some vibration.

Other Thoughts: Not for the big glass, but for a medium telephoto and a full sized camera, this thing is more than adequate. Its small, light, and quick to set up. Ballhead is beyond great for this pricerange, though it looks awful in the photos. If you're on the fence, for a $100, its hard to find better value in the photography world, except perhaps your brands 50mm 1.8

5 out of 5 eggsBest Carbon fiber tripod under 100$

Pros: This tripod is made of pretty good quality, it is very sturdy even with heavy equipment.
The Ball head locks in all directions very tightly with very little effort.
The retractable hook in the center column is a nice feature for adding weight when needed.

Cons: The panning head is not really fluid, their is a lot of resistance.
I am not sure if with time it will become easier to pan.

Other Thoughts: If your are looking for a first tripod that you want to keep for a while, you cant go wrong with this when on special(<100$).
If you are looking for a light and portable tripod this is not for you.
At 23 " folded it is certainly not considered at portable.
Even with the CF legs, the head is still heavy which makes a difference.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat first impressions

Pros: For the price point, I do not believe you can get a better tripod! The 3 section carbon fiber legs are sturdy (not Gitzo sturdy, but good enough for mounting my 100-400L zoom on it) - they're also silky smooth (and that's a plus). The rapid rise center column works great and does not have any play. All metal construction makes the whole assembly feel solid. The tripod has a bubble level and a separate compass, which I guess can come in handy. The "gitzo styled" ball head works great! The main pressure/lock knob is big so you don't have to work hard to lock the ball in place. The silver tension pin in the center of the lock knob is basically a pin to control how far you can loosen the lock knob, allowing for varying pressure on the ball when loosened. QR plate is beveled on the outside so you can simply slide it in without having to depress the generously sized quick release button. Padded nylon case has a zippered compartment and has enough space for the ball head!

Cons: Max load (from included manual) states 14lb, website says 17, newegg 13... try not to put over 10 on there! Silver tension pin could be bigger or have its own knob to make it easier to use. The thinnest leg sections are quite thin at 1/2", so some rigidity is compromised when they are fully extended. The foam grips are nice and keep your hands warm, but since they're new, some black bits tend to rub off on your hands like fine dust. The rubber feet are glue sealed to the legs so there are no spike alternatives possible (but sure keeps the dirt out!). The leg angle locks use some kind of grease to keep them operating smoothly, but over time will likely attract dirt. The padding in the nylon case is on the thinner side, but they are sufficient. The tripod base thread is 3/8" only, so no 1/4" adapter option (usually not a problem).

Other Thoughts: I have been using an old Sipratone aluminum tripod for years and know its time will be up soon, so I have been searching for a good quality carbon fiber tripod to replace it. I was a bit wary when I saw this tripod due to is extreme low price. However, I decided to try it out over Adorama's Flashpoint, Smith Victor, etc. I am glad I did! I have a Flashpoint monopod and I have to say that the Dolica legs are better built. This tripod/head combo more than fits the bill and comes in at just under $100, which I would have to say is a steal!

4 out of 5 eggsGood triopd

Pros: A good tripod, once adjusted.
Out of the box, adjustments were required.

Cons: Pan. mech was a bit sluggish and the center column key slot plays left to right slightly no matter how much you tighten it. After figurig out how to remove the head, and re assembly, panning became more fluid. Reversing the center column was a bit difficult. Not something you want to do in the field.

Other Thoughts: Poor inspection for proper operation before shippment from factory.

5 out of 5 eggsDolica ZX600B300 60" Carbon Fiber Tripod & Ballhead Combo

Pros: Easy to operate, very light (carbon fiber!!!), comes with a nice durable bag. Can hold my Canon 60D, Canon 24-70 L, and 420EX speedlight (maybe total of 5lbs.) easily. Just be careful with the camera to tripod mount, it can be very tricky. It actually has a double lock feature, but once you learn how to use it, you'll have no problems at all.

At $99, it's a very good deal!!!

Cons: Just be careful with the camera to tripod mount which can be very tricky.
