Dolica's 62" Aluminum Proline Tripod is ideal for both indoor and outdoor photography. It is perfect for events, sports activity, capturing that one amazing shot. Designed for use with Point-N-Shoot cameras and / or Digital SLR cameras Tripod Features: Professional Aluminum alloy construction and able to support up to 13.2 lbs. Base thread: 3/8". Includes ballhead, quick release plate and bubble level. 90 degree vertical platform. Standard-wide angle, semi-wide angle, full-wide angle. Quick release leg locks and non-slip rubber feet.
It is made out of aluminum. Light enough to carry around the whole day yet still very sturdy. The aluminum ball head actually performs well. Once you've got the desired angle and lock it in place, the camera will stay on that angle until you release the lock unlike my 20 usd tripod. Im using a d80 with 18-270mm lens attached. That's about 1.2kg weight. The tripod is rated by the manufacturer to handle up to 13 lbs of equipment. Other features are a quick release plate, 2 bubble levels ( one on the head and the other on the legs), user replaceable aluminum tripod head, a threaded weight hook and spiked feet. The tripod can also converted so you can take macro shots. The legs can be locked in position independent of one another. With all these features plus great performance, this tripod is a steal!
One minor hiccup, the plastic on the leg clamps, while not cheap, isnt top of the line. But they get the job done so it a no issue for me
If you're a professional photographer, go look at Manfrotto or some of the other high end brands. If you're an amateur photographer looking for a good tripod that won't cut into your lens budget, then look no further.
The ball head is nice, but is sometimes a bit unwieldy, and difficult to set. Sometimes you have to crank down the tightening nut a lot to get it to stay. The snaps that extend the legs are plastic feel cheap, but what can you expect from such an inexpensive tripod?
On the good side, you are getting a ball head tripod, with legs that can be extended past their typical angle. They also have nice padding on them which is great in the Northern climates when you have to work without gloves. The tips of the legs can be rotated to reveal spikes for difficult terrain, and there's two bubble levels: one on the legs of the tripod, and one on the actual ball head. There's also a compass, if you need that utility. Even with all that, you still get a pretty nice carrying case.
If you're looking for a high quality, professional grade tripod, this probably isn't the one for you. But if you're an amateur on a budget, you probably won't find a better tripod for under $150.
This is my video review of the Dolica 62 inch Ball Head Tripod.
Let me apologize right off for the quality of the video its shaky and out of focus. If you can bear with that you will see how cameras mount and how it looks set up.
Reason for purchase: I now have 4 digital cameras that take both photos and videos of varying resolution. Not one of them is shoulder mount and almost always the video comes out shaky or blurry depending on the situation. I planned on doing more video reviews but due to the poor quality of the videos I shot I thought it better to scrap most of them. I finally buckled down and bought a tripod. Seeing this was one of the top 5 tripods on Amazon I thought I would go for this one.
Performance (+) It performs better than I thought it would. Its light, easy to use and set up and also very flexible. Look at my newer video reviews I will do from today to see how it performs.
Accessories (+) The attaching plate is very easy to take off and if you buy multiple ones makes swapping cameras out very fast. It comes with a nice padded case that has interior compartments. I was not expecting a case and one as nice as this is an extra bonus.
Cost (+) I have had professional tripods in the past that were 10x more expensive at least. They were heavier, less flexible and generally a pain to set up. This tripod has a great bang for the buck ratio that shouldn't be ignored.
Overall (+) I am very happy with this purchase and recommend it!
Great tripod with performance legs that spread low and wide for macro work for the price. The quick release plate, quick flip lever leg release and lock, bubble levers, and a good tripod case besides being light and compact is great. The weak area for this tripod is the weak strength of the legs when fully extended, it has too much play but great for P&S digitals O.K. for small dSLR with small lens.
After careful consideration and weeks of comparisons I finally chose the Dolica 68inch. This tripod IS NOT pro quality, but what can you expect for less than 70 bucks. It has a bit of shake and twist when fully extended, but it beats my original Kodak Gear tripod and definitely is better than what you could pick up at Best Buy for the same price. It handles my Pentax Dslr with 55-200mm lens and flash with no problems. Has a solid head with a confident quick-release locking mechanism and smooth pan/tilt. Light enough to take on long hikes with a nice carry bag included. To better describe the sturdiness, I should say that if you hang a weight from the bottom and it swings a bit , so will your camera. If you grab it at the head and twist, the extended legs Will flex a bit. But if you set your camera for a two second delay, you'll get a great shot with this tripod. If you have twice the money to spend, you could get a sturdier, heavier tripod thats rock solid. For the price, though, its hard to go wrong with this one.
