This Dolica tripod just set off my alerts on CCC (Matched the lowest price this past year). I forgot to remove it in the past when I previously purchased it for this price. Worked out well since Xmas is coming up and my brother was jealous i got it for that cheap.

Personal Review (amateur photographer):
This was my first higher quality tripod (used amazonbasics one when i first got my DSLR). I've taken it on two international trips and it doesn't take up much space. Ideal for this exact purpose but it doesn't limit it to regular use. It's also undergone a lot of local trips since it was my only tripod for a while (recently purchased the Dolica GX600B200 so we'll see how it compares) but it honestly looks brand new except for a small scratch on the aluminum (accidental fall).
Removable ball head: I honestly don't have any reason to purchase a normal tilt and swivel motion type tripod. It's just a lot faster to use especially on unlevel ground.
