I bought this tripod and I was surprise with what I got. Even though I had read the specs on the product I was very surprise on how well made the tripod was. Even though is made of aluminum it feel very heavy duty. Holds my DSLR pretty well even with a heavy lens attached. And the fact that is very tall at 68'. This almost feel like a Pro tripod for a very low price.
The Dolica ST-Series lightweight tripods with a 3-way pan head is a compact, lightweight tripod that is small enough for fit in a backpack and strong enough to hold most Point & Shoots, entry level DSLRs, and camcorders. The ST-Series feature a weighted hook that allows users more stability when shooting and a mid level spreader to increase tripod stability.
