The Dolica ZX600B300 is the sucessor to our CX carbon fiber series.Carbon fiber is an upgraded material that is known for its lightweightness, resistance to vibration and greater torsional stability compared to aluminum. With a max height of 60 inches, the ZX600B300 is a suitable height for most people. The other unique feature is the Gitzo-style ball head. It offers a better balance compared to other ball heads thanks to its wide open ball base that offer wider tilt angles and less camera drift angle. The large ball head lock knob is also great for precise camera positioning. 3 angle leg locks allow for multi-angle tripod positioning. It comes with a padded nylon storage case.

Tis tripod is sturdy and well-made, but relatively compact when folded and relatively light. the twist-type section locks on the legs work smoothly and securely and are compact when the tripod is folded. The removable head is well-made, sturdy and provides more tilt adjustment than most heads in the horizontal position.
I am a long-time photography enthusiast, and I live next to a National Park. I am 60 years old now and no longer want to shlep around 30 lbs of equipment. My wife and I also travel a lot to other Parks and natural places. My shots are mostly landscape work. I turned in all my SLR stuff for a Lumix FZ200; it's a good travel camera with a fast long zoom, and I no longer carry 2 bodies and 3-4 lenses with me.
When I bought the Dolica setup, I was looking for LIGHT WEIGHT...something I can EASILY carry over my shoulder with my camera attached. I was also drawn to the TWIST GRIP leg locks; IMHO they're a bit quicker to set up, and they're a lot easier on my 60 yr old hands than the cam levers. I like the B300 ball head because it has one BIG knob to release the ball and move it in any direction. It operates very smoothly. I did have some trouble with the pan adjustment moving a tiny bit even after tightened down; I called customer service and an amazing person there talked me...
I bought this as a compact for travel. I was thinking of getting an ultra light like the tent pole design from tamrac (can't remember the name) I have a fairly large or maybe medium sized Bogen that is kind of a hassle to lug around.
It really is 3.5 lbs but it is heavier than I thought somehow. It is very sturdy and I like the weight hook.. There are 3 positions on the leg angles. The ball head is smooth and sturdy for my Nikon 5100 with kit lenses. I think it would have no trouble with my 55-300 zoom.
I bought it for a Nikon p7700 and travel but it works for my SLR rig great... I would trust it with a hassleblad on top. I might just use a monopod for my 7700.
Couple of notes, the center post is notched so its lined up on the legs the way Dolica decided. You can't line up your lens on the leg pointing at your subject.
The mounting plate situation is the only thing I don't love. It's just a long slot with a set screw. There is no locking...
