Wouldn't it be nice to have a full sized tripod that didn't either weigh a ton or cost a small fortune? If you have been looking for that then please let me introduce you to the PRO 700 DX series from Slik. All tripods kits in this series have the same legs but different heads, like the PRO 780 DX.
The SLIK Pro 780DX tripod uses the widely popular PRO 700 DX legs in black color, coupled with a new SH-807E heavier duty 3-Way pan head. This head has improved internal components for smoother movements and improved, larger rubberized grips for more comfortable control. The head has well over a solid pound of finely cast and precisely machined aluminum. It uses a fast and easy to use quick-release plate to securely mount the camera on the tripod.
The PRO 700 DX is capable of handling the weight of a professional full-frame DSLR camera with heavy long telephoto lenses. It offers professional photographers and advanced amateurs the strength and stability they need. SLIK’s exclusive AMT super titanium alloy legs make the PRO 700 DX tripod rock steady yet lighter than it looks.
“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.
Remember, the PRO 780 DX tripod is full sized, with just the legs extended and the center column down the camera is already at eye level on most people. Raise the smooth gearless center column to it maximum height and your camera is more than 6 feet off the ground! If you have heavy camera equipment that needs steady support this tripod is for you.
