Anyone like to shed some light on below Dolica tripod. Doesn't have Monopod option but look more sturdy and I like legs lock features.

The one in your link is a totally different tripod of lower grade. Type of head is very different, quick release on your Link and here, much better built Ball Head type.
The one you refer to, when on sale, goes about $30 or under both by Costco and Amazon.

The deal here is probably the best bet if you are not a professional photographer or you don't expect too much from a good, small to midsize but very versatile tripod. You simply can not find a better deal for this price at the given spects.

The only major problem with this deal is that though Dolica head here looks exactly like a Arca Swiss sliding release mechanism, it IS NOT. So absolutely not compatible with arca swiss. But then if you don't know what arca swiss is and you are in search of a good all around tripod, THIS is IT. Buy it before too late.

Just read a recommendation for this tripod in a review since I am looking for something I can actually take with me on a trip. Here is the link to the review of travel tripods: http://www.travel-photographs.net...el-tripod/
Not sure about the site and its recommendations doesn't make good sense. There are a lot better choices out there.

Damn no arca Swiss compatible is a deal breaker for me. Anyone have any alternatives for a travel tripod?

It's very flimsy, not able to support a DSLR. If shooting at slow speed, it won't prevent camera shake. I bought it, inspected and will return.

I tried this tripod out over this past weekend by taking long exposure shots in a cave. Worked great.

Took mine to a trip to Yosemite in April. No issue with Nikon D600 16-35 f4 mounted. Fits in a backpack so I can hike with it. Worked well for me, Now it's $10 cheaper, even a better deal. I did lose the plate, took a while to find another to fit in a local camera store.

I played with this in store. You will be disappointed. the head is flimsy, and I doubt it would provide good stability for you camera and lens. This is certainly nice for a mirrorless, or even a small size (rebel, sl1) with an ultrawide or mid range zoom.
of course to each his own, and honestly if you are looking in the sub 100 price range, this may be a good deal, but if you want lightweight and stable, for a ball head and legs, for your 6d and 24-105, you need to be looking at a min of 300 budget. If you can do without really light, you can get stable and medium weight at 150-200
I have $200 Feisol CF tripod, the first model they releases. And I use it with 1dmk2 and 500mm f4 mostly with 1.4xTC.

Yes, but they add a $2.50 surcharge for non-members. Still worth it IMO.

I bought this tripod back in October and have hiked with it extensively. It's perfect for Mirrorless cameras, and I use it for my Sony NEX-7 and all of my lenses. It also has a detachable leg to use as a monopod, which can be great if you're trying to stay mobile while you shoot on a longer lens.

In for one for my Canon 650D. Figured I'd give it a shot since it's Costco and returns are super easy.

Got one recently. Very compact and surprisingly high quality for the price. Even the ball head is nicely dampened and works well burn my mirror less setup.
