The head appears to be a huge upgrade over the B100.

EOS,

Did you mean that ZX600B300 ballhead is newer and better than in ZX600B103?

ZX600B300 is the older model, but can be mounted at low profile (external link) when legs are down low.

ZX600B103 is the newer head, and from what dolica said.. they are the same. i never used the previous, so can't really comment, but from dolica, the ball inside is the same size. lol...

the difference between the two model is 300 is older and includes a short stub column for you to mount the head at lower profile vs. the 103 which is newer and doesn't include the short stub column.

lol....Thanks!

Does anyone in the forum have ZX600B300 and could they share their experience with that one especially in terms of droop effect once camera is set vertically...

Thanks in advance!

Just got this tripod in the mail. Wow, the build quality is fantastic. I can't believe I only paid 107 delivered for it!

Just got this tripod. I am comparing it to the Sunpak 423px that I got the other day at Costco. The Sunpak is taller and the legs have a wider base but I like the head of the Dolica so much more. What do you guys think? Do you think one is better than the other?

How would this compare to the sunpak 6600PG technically I paid $13 on the sunpak w rebates and coupons and a gift card asking price was $69. Would it be a better TP or should I stick w mine for the time being, since I'm still learning?

I'm really puzzled.

When using a big lens with a collar, why are you tilting the baseplate to turn the camera to portrait view rather than turning the lens in the collar and keeping the weight of the camera directly over the center of the tripod?

Sorry if it is a dumb question.

I think he was doing that to show that it could support the weight without creeping.

Just pick up this tripod, so far looks like it will work great for everything I need to do while shooting. Do have one question about the pins that lock and unlock the legs. Are they suppose to be spring loaded? Mine just pull in and out but no spring action to hold the pin in place.

My copy came from Costco with the B103 head, just in case anyone wanted to know.

It's now on sale for $79.99 through August 19th.

Hmmm, I've got a Costco cash card with some money left on it. Might have to pick one of these up.
