The Slik Able 300DX features "D" shaped closed leg extensions that provide maximum strength with zero twist. Each leg angle can be individually adjusted to compensate for surfaces and ground level shots.

An omni-directional quick release permits instant camera mounting or removal in any four positions. The quick release is positioned on a 3-way panhead with separate locking controls for pan and tilt. "Lift-n-Lock" center column features oversized locking collar for fast positive setups. Rubber leg tips provide maximum traction outdoors and protection to surfaces indoors. Other features include the optional short center column, permitting tripod use as low as 14" (35cm).

Slik's unique and patented engineering, plus a remarkably wide selection of tripods, it is easy to choose just the right one to hold your camera steady at any angle, on virtually any terrain, for applications indoors or out. Decades of experience and a wealth of accumulated photographic knowledge, combined with state-of-the-art engineering, have been instrumental in helping Slik create tripods that are amazingly light, yet offer remarkable strength and stability.

    I found the tripod too heavy to carry around and not particularty easy to manipulate, mainly because of its weight.
    On top of that, the one I received was defective. It had a missing a screw & the piece that hold's the camera to the tripod (piece screwed to the base of the camera) kept on getting loose.

      Comments about Slik Able 300DX Tripod:

      Best tripod that i have ever used. Yes it is a little heavy but if you want your camera to be stable, you need it to be a little heavy. All around good tripod. It is very smooth and easy to use. I also like the hight that it can go as well. It gives a good range from how high you need it, to how low you need it. Very great tripod in my opinion.

              The Slik Able 300DX has been around for years. It's a proven tripod. I love the sturdiness of it & the center column is reversible. Lots of good things to say about this tripod... I bought this one for my daughters birthday because of how much I like the one I bought myself about 15 years ago.

              Comments about Slik Able 300DX Tripod:

              I recently used this tripod while traveling in the UK and Europe for fifteen weeks. I just loved it! It is sure, solid, and well made. The "controls" are easy to use. When you turn / crank-down on ANY control, it is solid as a rock, and stays put, even with a (fairly) heavy EOS 6D, with battery grip, and a 24-70 f/2.8 attached. The quick release plate on the head/camera is solid, and I'd attach a camera, carry it around, and never, ever worry about it coming lose. The legs are easy to fold/unfold, extend/collapse. The handles on the pan-head unscrew, and one screws into the other, making it easy to pack up (without the handles protruding). So, it fit nicely on my camera bag (backpack).
              However, it is not lightweight, and it can get a teensy tiresome schlepping it around. The performance is so solid, I just considered it "part of the deal" and was happy to have it with me.

                I've used this for landscapes, portraits, weddings, and night events and I like it so far. As this is my first tripod purchase, I am highly satisfied with it's capabilities. i.e.: Nice range of motion, sturdiness due to the heavier weight, ease of use. The only gripe, if really worth complaining about, is the set up time for different shots. Since the clamps are twist closures, not actual clamps, it takes a little longer to wind and unwind to different heights. That said, I think this is a great first tripod. Super sturdy, will last a very long time, and gets the shot you want.

                Good solid tripod for the money. Definitely best suited for applications that don't involve traveling with it or moving it around too much as it is fairly heavy and also isn't the easiest to set up compared to some other more expensive tripods.

                  Comments about Slik Able 300DX Tripod:

                  I wanted to purchase a standard tripod that had a good weight capacity for holding my XTi and 17-70mm lens plus a vertical grip. The SLIK 300DX arrived and I was very pleased with the size and build quality of the product. I for one am glad to have a piece of equipment that is heavy and will hold my camera stead for night photography, group shots, and general use. I wish it came with its own bag as some other tripods do, but my wife is going to build me a custom bag that will be of probably much higher quality than a nylon carry bag. The other thing I like about the tripod is the locking screws. If a tripod has the standard clip locks for the legs it would be hard to replace/repair when they break. This locking system will allow me to easily repair if it ever breaks. Great tripod, fair price!

                        I bought this to mount my spotting scope on. The scope is approx. 14" long about 4 inches in diameter. The tripod was much more than I expected. It's easy to use sturdy. The only draw back is the weigh as I will have to pack it several miles a day. But it looks like it will withstand the howling winds of the rocky mountains. Well pleased.

                          I found the tripod too heavy to carry around and not particularty easy to manipulate, mainly because of its weight.
                          On top of that, the one I received was defective. It had a missing a screw & the piece that hold's the camera to the tripod (piece screwed to the base of the camera) kept on getting loose.

                            Very easy to use. Smooth transitions. A snap to adjust. Big upgrade from the 35 year old Star-D!!

                            I bought this tripod as a birthday present for my fiance'. I was impressed at how sturdy it was. The tripod is a little heavy but not as bad as I thought it would be. It's quite heavy duty and I would be surprised to hear that it broke. The grip handles conveniently screw together for storing and the movement of the head is very smooth and it locks well. Overall I would recommend this tripod for any photographer who doesn't need it for a long backpack trip.

                              Tripod was purchased to support Nikon D100 and 105mm closeup lens to photograph in a studio setting. It is very smooth in operation. The legs move in and out easily and lock tight without hard twisting. The camera is easily positioned into portrait or landscape mode and is held secure. Tripod is medium weight. Small puck that fastens to camera bottom and then is locked into tripod head is a great idea.

                                [...]I've been through three "lightweight" tripods in the past 10 years. Leg fasteners (both flip and twist type) broke. Plastic radius arms (to separate legs) broke. Plastic head parts broke. And I'm considered GENTLE with my equipment! It's worth spending some time with the directions to learn about features such as the secondary angle locks on the legs and terminology for various tilting head parts so you get the right handle on the right tilt part. My first shots told me it was worth the price--which isn't THAT high.
