5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT sturdy tripod!, April 6, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dolica ST-650 Lightweight Tripod - Camera / Camcorder Tripod (Black) (Electronics)
Love it! Pans smoothly, very easy quick release plate and sets up in a snap. I think it is very sturdy. Seems well constructed and has a nice black canvas back with a strap for slinging over your shoulder. It says it can take up to 11 pounds. The tripod weighs a little over 4 pounds. I use my husband as my personal sherpa, so he can carry it when we trek out together.
You can also tilt the plate and lock it for vertical shots.
Got a great deal on this baby, very happy! Super easy to use.

October 2013: It broke. I can't even say exactly how it happened. My kids put it in the bag and when I went to use it again, it is like it's neck is broken. Just flopped around. I wish I could be more forth coming on HOW and the precise mechanism that seemed to snap, but I couldn't quite figure it out. In it's defense it lasted a while. My kids used it constantly for making their movies so it was put through abuse. I am now searching for a replacement.

It comes with a black zip up canvas bag/case. I'm having no problems with mine and for the price it can't be beat. A little heavier than another I tried, but still light weight. I trudge along just fine.
