The Dolica ST600B001 lightweight tripod with a classic ball head is a compact, lightweight tripod that is a great entry level tripod that works with Inter-changeable lens cameras (ILC), Point & Shoots, entry level DSLRs, and camcorders. The ST600B001 features a weighted hook that allows more stability when shooting and a mid-level spreader to increase tripod stability. The geared center column allows you to precisely extend the camera up or down. The ST600B001 uses a traditional ball head design with single control for pan and tilt. Bubble levels on the tripod and ball head make it easy to level your shot. Finally included with every ST600B001 is a padded nylon case for storage.

I've used the tripod for a few weeks now. The set up and teardown are very simple, with articulating levers that close and open the friction to let the legs down. The hook to counterbalance the camera was pretty solid, and held a 20lb weight to counterbalance an DSLR+telephoto. Rotating head is convenient for scenery, but articulating up and down is much more difficult since there's no large handle for the movement. All in all, can't beat the price and build for this tripod. Very happy customer here.
