        Comments about Slik PRO 400 DX Tripod with Quick Release:

        I bought this tripod to use with my V-LUX4 and I'm very happy with it. The construction is rugged and I'm confident that it will not fail and damage my camera. The 3-way panhead is intuitive to use and locks firmly into any position. Panning is smooth.

        The legs lock at a wide variety of angles including one that places the panhead very close to the floor. The center column is two-piece and can be shortened to further reduce the distance between the camera to the floor.

        Good for photography. Still testing for video work. I really enjoy its stability and mobility. Not to heavy but can be a little bulky.

        I use the tripod for nature photography and bird watching. It is steady and supports long range lenses. Be sure to buy the case that is recommended for it as it is somewhat heavy to carry without it.

              Comments about Slik PRO 400 DX Tripod with Quick Release:

              We do not use this product for photography purposes at all. It's used to hold a work tray for utility workers and they treat this item like a tool so it does not get "babied". We use this product in some harsh environments, always outside and in the elements. Currently there is close to 80 of these in the field for our company and only one has come in for repair and Slik's service was great to get it fixed and returned quickly. I would recommend this item to anyone needing a reliable and sturdy tripod, no matter what you attach it to.

                I use this in all my shooting from weddings to landscapes to still life. It is relatively light yet has a very robust, solid build. Good weight capacity, smooth movement, intelligent design.

                The only thing I wish it had is maybe a spirit level.

                All in all, superb bang for the buck! I'll have mine a long time

                  I spent a hour in the store going through all the tripods around the same price, and choose the Pro 400. Although being lite to carry around, it's stable enough for my slr, and large (Panasonic db100b) video camera. The hardware on the legs is strong. The padding is a nice touch. I wish it went a little higher, but that's it, I'm very happy with it.
