    Default Dolica Traveler Tripod

    Test post....

    Hopefully a LINK to Photobucket Album for Dolica Traveler Tripod.... In the picture below, the tripod is stored in its (standard) carry case, with a Canon S3 IS included for size comparison.

    Picture is a cropped & resized copy of photo originally taken with a Panasonic FZ200, which has been purchased to replace the over 5 1/2 year-old S3. Am very impressed with the FZ200 thus far, although have had precious little time to "play" with it yet.

    (YAY: Michigan State just went ahead of TCU 14 to 13 - under 7 minutes in game. Lots of time left, but nice to see them in front!)

    Default Dolica Traveler Tripod - folded


    Well, was up way too late last night - but at least Mich State managed to win their bowl game, which had an exciting 4th Qtr.

    Here is a picture of the Dolica in its Folded Position - which, again, is less than 13" in total length, and reaches out to about 57" with all sections fully opened (including the 2 section neck).

    Tripod weighs in at 2.5 lbs, and feels sturdy (whether or not you wish to debate its "Professional" status), although am not convinced I would want to test its maximum weight rating, particularly with the last spindly-looking little leg sections extended.

    With four leg sections (by 3 legs!) to extend, plus the center column extension, set up is a bit fussy, but this is a "Travel" tripod, all of the lock mechanisms feel sturdy, and it holds the Pan FZ200 securely.

    In all, very happy with this thus far. Youngest daughter has a larger Dolica model which has held up well for several years (and through 2 DSLRs) - am obviously hoping for similar results.
