Hey UHH folks,
I'm trying to decide on my first buy, highest quality @ lowest price. I've seen posts here about the Ravelli APG L4 for $95, which caught my eye, found Ravelli Professional 65-inch Carbon Fiber 3 Axis Ball Head Camera Video Photo Tripod for $85...then found Costco has Dolica ZX600B103 70" for $99, which is also Carbon Fiber. Interested in hearing opinions, experiences, etc...trip to Europe this summer, and indoor/outdoor use...How important is T's height? I'm 6'1", ultimately interested in portrait/head shots, 65" or 70"?
Other options are buying used Manfrotto, which seems widely appreciated, but older, heavier, at around $100-150...some come w' heads. I would spend a little more if quality, portability & longevity are there...Help!?!
Thank you!

In photography there is not such thing and high quality and low price!

The ravelli has a list price of appox $395.00 and comes with 2 metal mounting plates, a small tripod good for point n shoot cameras or a dsl with a light lens, it has a soild metal pistol grip and the legs are sturdy, its a heavy tripod and so far has worked well holding up my D3100 nikon with the sigma 2x teleconverter and 150-500 mm lens , it dosen't have a center crank handle ( which is no biggie to me , less to break or catch )
