PRO 340 EZ AMT - Kit
Like to get out and get around to take photos? Need a tripod that can travel and move easily? The compact Slik PRO 340 series tripods should be a contender. If you have a mirrorless camera or entry level DSLR this tripod can handle up to 8.8lbs for camera equipment.
The Slik PRO 340 EZ includes the SH-707E all-metal pan head. This head made of finely cast and precisely machined aluminum. The single handle operation has just one control for both pan and tilt movements. This style of head is perfect for tracking moving subjects with a spotting scope or binoculars. For this application there is a long pan handle available as an optional accessory. It also uses a fast and easy to use quick-release plate to securely mount a camera or spotting scope on the tripod. The mount for the quick-release rotates 360 degrees and locks down facing in any direction.
SLIK’s exclusive AMT super titanium alloy legs make the PRO 340 series tripods steady and lightweight. “What’s so great about AMT alloy?” You may be thinking. AMT has a 40% greater strength to weight ratio than standard aluminum. The legs are lighter weight yet stronger than the standard metal used in most of today’s tripods. This lightweight comes with a price comparable to other standard aluminum tripods.
The 4 leg sections means the tripod folds down to just over 19 inches in length making it an easy traveler while fully extended it can reach up to 58 inches. The SLIK Pro 340DX also makes setting up easy with secure, speed-release leg locks (example pictured left). Padded leg wraps make the tripod more comfortable to carry. A gearless center column and 3-position, adjustable angle leg locks allow easy set-up on uneven ground or steps.
