The all new Dolica GX600 aluminum alloy tripod and B200 ball head is a complete support system for your camera (point-and-shoot, SLR with lens, and DSLR with lens). It is designed to be lightweight, portable, and stable for any and every occasion.The Tripod is composed of Anodized Aluminum Alloy (AAA) and Plastic Polymer Composite (PPC). The combination of both materials maximizes the petite size and reinforced stability it provides to make every photo-shoot perfect.We also provide the comfort of using NBR foam grips for extreme weather conditions. The comfort grips are nice because you can have a tight grip and know that the tripod will NOT slip from your hands. In extreme weather conditions in a climate of below 30 degrees any metal will be unbearably cold and in an environment that has a temperature of above 90 degrees will heat any metal making it uneasy to maneuver your tripod and that is why we offer the standard of NBR foam grips to this special tripod.The sleek ball head includes a quick release plate with a 3/8 inch mount for cameras. It attaches to the ball head with a safety lock to prevent the camera from slipping off and falling while loosening your quick release plate. While you have you camera attached to the quick release plate and ball head, you can pan 360 degree and tilt up to 90 degree. You can also attach a lens (i.e. 200mm f/4) mount to the quick release plate and have the comfort of stabilizing with confidence.The upgraded GX600 tripod has its professional function and additional upgraded features. The three major features are: four level positioning, interchangeable spike/rubber feet, and a dual purpose mount. Uneven surface can be a big issue for many photographers and that is why we engineered our tripod with four levels for high to low level shots. You have the freedom to position each individual leg from a standard position to adjusting each leg at four-different levels. To decrease the chance of slippage, use rubber feet for soft surface, and spike rubber feet for rugged terrain. You can remove the hook from the dual purpose counter weight hook mount from the bottom of the center column, remove the center column, insert the counter weight hook mount on the top of the tripod (attach the camera), adjust each individual leg to ground level, and you’re ready to shoot extremely low macro-shots.The GX600B200 is completely, reliable, portable, and ready to use for your next photo-shoot!Tripod and Ball Head Technical DetailsMaximum height column↑: 60 inchesMaximum height column↓: 51Minimum height column↑ : 29.5 inchesMinimum height column↓ : 21.5 inchesClosed height: 23 inchesNet weight: 2.5 lbsMax weight: 15 lbsLeg sections: 4Material: Lightweight aluminum alloyColor: BlackBall Head Technical DetailsBase thread: 3/8 inchQuick release thread: 1/4 inchPanoramic angle: Horizontal 360°Material: lightweight aluminum alloyColor: BlackCounter Weight Hook Mount Technical DetailsAttach hook to use as counter weight to stabilize your tripodTwist hook counter clock-wise to remove from center column,emove hook, remove from center column, remove center column,Material: lightweight aluminum alloyColor: BlackPremium featuresRapid stability center column (non-rotating)Reversible locking center columnDurable flip leg locksNon slip rubber feet with retractable spikeClosed cell comfort gripsIntegrated tripod bubble level3-position leg angle adjustment locks (for macro lens)Counter weight hookIncludes a tripod carry caseWarranty5 yearsThe Dolica GX600B200 is ideal for indoor and outdoor photography, thanks to the modest 3.5lbs you can take it anywhere making it perfect to all events, such as sports activities, camping, family gatherings and much more.
