Dolica GX650B204 Proline GX Series 65 inch Aluminum Tripod and Ball Head Combo for DSLR, SLR [Standard Packaging, 65 inch] $44.99

+5 Deal Score
Got an alert that this is the lowest it's every been according to CCC.

There was a primaphoto tripod just went first page but this is another option for those looking for a taller tripod at 65" yet can still hold a max of 17 pounds. The dolica is also well rated at 4.4/5 with over 1000 reviews (fake spot A if that matters)

Some other comparisons:

Weights are similar 3.64lb for primaphoto and 3.5lb for dolica (greater closed height at 25").

The primaphoto tripod also has a 3 yr warranty and this dolica has a 5 year warranty.

This tripod is not arc swiss compatible. There is a hack though for those who are interested yet still want that compatibility.
Good deal?

Thanks for that, i'll add it to the description. If arca swiss is a must, there is a hack that i've done with a different dolica tripod using to make it compatible. Might not be worth the trouble but the price for this tripod is a steal if buyers don't need that compatibility!

Please help an amateur with his first tripod. Thank you in advance!

I use a Superzoom camera, nothing special. I will do light hiking with it, family portraits, landscapes, wildlife, etc. General, non-professional stuff. I only want to keep one.

I bought both of these...

Dolica GX600B200, Proline GX Series 60-Inch Aluminum Tripod and Ball Head

Rapid stability center column
Reversible locking center column
Durable flip leg locks
Integrated tripod bubble level
3-Position leg angle adjustment locks (for macro lens)

PrimaPhoto PHTRBBK, 54" Gear Traveler Big Tripod

Fractioned ball head with independent pan lock
Leg to monopod
Telescopic center column
Leg angle selectors
Twist leg locks

Here's what I noticed when I setup both...

- even though specs say otherwise, definitely taller fully extended
- heavier by nearly 1lb
- bubble level is not working, not even close to accurate
- twist extension legs not as quick/easy to use, legs to not drop/slide on their own
- monopod

- noticeably less weight
- legs drop/slide on their own when released : faster setup
- seems less sturdy
- no monopod
