Dolica AX730P105 73-Inch Proline Tripod and Pan Head – Review:
GREAT TRIPOD FOR THE PRICE!
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.
