I own about a dozen tripods at this point and often use as many as 10 at a time when shooting concert videos. For me, weight and size matter because I have to carry them all in to whatever venue I'm shooting in. Stability matters while shooting for what I hope are obvious reasons. I've recently been upgrading my less stable tripods, and the Dolica TX570 family tripods provide the best mix of small size, low weight, and high stability I've found yet.
I spent time evaluating the Mefoto backpacker a year and a half ago. At the time I wound up buying the slightly heavier 3Pod Aluminum ballhead. I now own the Dolica's as well. The designs of the Mefoto Backpacker, 3Pod Aluminum, and Dolica TX750 family tripods are nearly identical in nearly all of their specifics. They fold and expand the same way. They are about the same length folded. They offer the same options for flexibly expanding the legs to fit varying surfaces. The 3Pod is the heaviest. The Dolica is the lightest. The Mefoto is just a tad heavier than the Dolica. The Dolica has the smallest diameter when folded. All work well, but I prefer the smaller and taller Dolica design
Oddly, the deciding issue for me in favoring Dolica was not the price (even though the Dolica is about 2/3rds the price of the 3Pod and the 3Pod is about a 2/3's the price of the Mefoto). It is the height they extend to. Fully extended the Dolica's are about three inches taller than the 3Pod and about six inches taller than the Mefoto. That may not matter for you, but height matters when you are trying to shoot video over the heads of an audience. Higher is better, and if the tallest tripod is also lighter and less expensive (as is the case for the Dolica), its hard to resist. I now own three. It wouldn't surprise me if I would up owning at least one more in the future.
I have done one adaptation to this tripod that improves it for my purposes (enough so that I've made the same adaptation on all three of my compact tripods. I've substituted the Grifiti Nootle Pan Head (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FAZ7XAU/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_1 ) for the ball heads. My objection to the ball heads, in general, is that they have to be properly aimed in at least two of three dimensions at once. I find that I want to fine tune each dimension after getting the initial setting right. I've tried a number of compact pan heads and have found the Nootle works best on ultra compact tripods. The quick release shoe provides an excellent grip on the camera as well.
I have owned many other dolica tripods with the "clips" at the extension points, and have found they ALWAYS break. Due to the design of this tripod, that is not an issue, since you screw and unscrew to tighten this tripod.
Another reason why I like this tripod is because I can set it up really quickly by simply spinning the nuts to extend it.
The ball head is one of the BEST features of the tripod, and IMO no tripods should be sold without a ball head. It allows me to save time and get shots I would not be able to get with a standard leveler on most tripods.
Its durable made out of metal and has always easily held the weight of my Canon t3i and Canon Camcorders. If this review was helpful for you be sure click "This was helpful" so other people can benefit.
I give 4 star but it's more like 4.5. It's not "rock solid" as other reviewers said. It does skew or shift little if you push it little hard, even though that would be abusive stress test. The point of this tripod is ultralight weight, easy to carry anywhere, setup quickly, and move another place. For that purpose it's really a perfect tripod.
However, it is not all purpose tripod. I would not use it unattended photography; like self timer or long interval timer shooting. When I was shooting on a beach, I felt little nervous because of the very strong wind on that day. It didn't wobble, but the ballhead on the tripod is not really for heavy duty. I was using little heavy off-balance zoom lens/camera setup on that day, and it made me very uneasy. If you need a stationary tripod that is expected to be unattended for long time, I'd suggest to get different one. But other that, it's really a nice grab and go tripod. Highly recommended.
The legs can be positioned in virtually any direction. All the knobs tighten well. I used it with my GoPro and Nikon D7200 while on a two-week expedition exploring an island in the Caribbean. Even after getting wet, getting sandy, etc. it continued to perform well. It is small and light but extends to a good height. Care needs to be taken when shooting video when it's windy. Fully extended legs will produce a lot of shaky video. This is just one of those trade-offs with a small lightweight travel tripod but the convenience and performance factor make is so worth it.
