There's also the SunPak 6400 tripod on sale for $16 at Buy.com, includes multiple bubble levels. B&H sells this for $30.

Personally, I'm saving my dollars for a much sturdier tripod than either of these two inexpensive models. Blurry photos due to tripod wobble is evil. :evil:

The Dolica is so much better than this SunPak. This is coming from somebody who owns both. Well the sunpak has been thrown in the trash after the head snapped right off of it. Never again will I go with a plastic head of any kind.


I just got my first pair of glasses that I didn't think I needed. I apologize to anybody in the past year that I said their pictures were out of focus lol.

I have this tripod, it's easily worth twice that. In fact, I think I paid $46 for mine.

Awesome buy.

Thanks, just ordered Twooooo!

Benro Travel Angel A-269 M8 vs Dolica Proline AX620B100

Received it today. :)

Here are the pics, side by side with my Benro Travel Angel A-269 M8 ($190 from B&H)

^As you can see above, the Benro is just a bit taller and has a wider stance.

The ballhead is okay. It can handle my heaviest setup (XSi + battery grip + two batteries + Sigma 17-70 OS + 430EX + 4 AA batteries)


One significant note I'd like to add is the Dolica Proline legs vibrates :( While fully extended, a quick tap on the legs and you will see it shaking/vibrating. You get what you paid for ;)

The Dolica legs have 3 possible positions and can spread very wide if you wish. Like a 45" angle.

you'll have a 4ft high tripod with the 2nd angle or something like that, maybe even less.

So far I have no complaints with mine. How about the new users?

for $25.. it was well worth it!! I wasn't expecting much from it, but it's quite a decent tripod... not your typical "cheap" tripod. the ballhead can hold my 7D with 17-55 and 580ex attached with no problem. this was a great deal for people like me who didn't want to drop $200+ on a manfrotto combo or other more expensive option. does this tripod compare to those better tripod??... of course not!!! but you just can't beat the $25 price tag for this combo... come with a nice carrying bag too!

Note that it you can only get it for $21 if you buy another Dolica product and get the %25 discount. Luckily $1 screen protectors count as a second product so just add that to your cart and you will get the discount.

How is the stability compared to the aluminum Benro travel angel tripods?

Ordered! Thanks! FYI, as indicated above, will initially show as $29 -- if you add the screen protector once you get to the checkout screen it will show the discount. $22.97 with the screen protector and free shipping!
