"Weight. And coolness."
"And bare aluminum can be very cold on the hands in the Winter."

Warmth = coolness???

Carbon fiber dampens vibration faster than aluminum, and it looks cool

For me outside of the coolness its just weight, I want a light and low cost alternative the heavy monsters I have been using for years...

So I got mine today, and just unboxed it (had it shipped). Not sure if I like it to be honest. What I don't like so far is the 'quick release' head. It seems to be a 2-step process. Unscrew the locking bolt (which in itself does not translate to quick in my book), and then press the button on the side. Is this the correct way to release the plate, or am I missing something? I'm also not crazy about the twist-lock for the legs, I prefer the flip-lock type. figured that's something I'd just get used to, but the QR is something I'm not sure I'll be happy with in the ling run.

What are your opinions of the QR system?

On a more positive note, I do love the carbon fiber aspect of it. Vibration is essentially non-existent, which was my nemesis on my other tripod.

Interesting thing, even with 4 section legs, the closed height/length is about 8" more then my other tripod, which only had 3 section legs, and they both go to the same max height. Hmm.

I have had no issues with the quick release system. Its a two stage system so your gear doesn't slam into the ground and that's a good thing. My Bogen Manfrotto tripod has quick release plates that I think are in no way any better that Dolica. So far so good I am not a huge fan of the twist and release legs but that's life it works just fine I could not be happier with this for the price its a very good tripod.
