Daiwa / Slik DST-3 Reviews

Really nice little tripod with pro features.

First of all, it's a three stage tripod, very light, like a downsized gitzo only easier and quicker to extend/break down. Cushioned leg grips and retracting feet reveal spikes for outdoors. Loop for hanging center weight. Half ball for quick leveling. Includes a very nice bag, too.

Nice light tripod for small camcorders

I bought the DST-3 as a lightweight tripod alternative for my Canon XF100 Camcorder. Normally I shoot with a Gitzo tripod and Miller DS5 Head. But that rig can get heavy on long hikes to a shoot. Overall the DST-3 is a good buy for the price. Really smooth head, with claw-ball leveler, sturdy legs and folds up small. On the negative side, it's unstable on uneven surfaces. On hillsides and broken ground it wants to tip over, because the leg spread is a little narrow on the default setting. Legs do have two other positions to make the tripod much more stable, but not as high. Again, this is a great starter tripod for serious videographers or for a second camera or lockdown shots.
