The Slik Pro 340DX is a complete all-metal tripod setup that's effective for lightweight travel duty when one desires a professional feel. The A.M.T. super titanium alloy legs make the Pro 340DX tripod rock steady yet lighter than it looks. The A. M. T. alloy has a 40% greater strength to weight ratio than standard aluminum, meaning the legs are lighter weight yet stronger than the standard metal used in most of today's tripods. A 3-way panhead--SH-705E--with 2 pan and tilt handles for easy operation is included.

Speed Release Lock levers allow for fast set up
3-Position leg locks allow for leg openings of independent angles
Rubber leg tips for maximum traction outdoors and protection to surface indoors
Foam covered upper leg sections for easy handling in extreme hot or cold weather

    B&H had a great price for the tripod and free bag. Not a ball-head tripod, but at the price you could buy a ballhead separately and still not break the bank. The tripod is stable with my nikon D90 and 18-200 lens, including when the camera is tilted 90 degrees in portrait mode. It folds down small, and is quite light, but could be made lighter if you swapped out the relatively heavy pan head for a lighter ball head. The pan head works fine for me since I plan on using it for some pano shots. I would prefer that the quick release bracket had a better clamp mechanism. The locking lever just squeezes down on the bracket and it doesn't have a security 'latch'. The bracket is the only reason why I knocked 1 star off the rating. Otherwise, it has great usability... the legs can be set at 3 different angles including a wide splayed-out angle to get it low(you can remove the bottom half of the center column when you want it low). The castings are nice and solid, the leg extension clamps are secure, and it feels like a well-constructed product. I have only used the tripod on solid ground and in calm weather conditions, but it should be fine in the boonies unless it is windy or you have it tilted over a lot. It is a light tripod so you can't expect it to be rock-solid like a heavier model. I took some bracketed night-shots to try HDR, and the pics were sharp. When combined in HDR, there was no blurriness. I recommend this tripod highly if you are only looking to spend around 100 and don't need a pro-level tripod

    Had this for about 6 months & it gets the job done but I'm not thrilled with the stability. I would have gone with a heavier tripod but I bought it for travel and its light weight. Makes it portable but also more unstable. In weather and terrain, it tips and sways more easily.

    - Great for travel & is lightweight.
    - It's "Quick Release" but mine sticks a little so you have to really shake and pull to extend the legs the rest of the way (not as quick as I'd like)
    - Pan/Tilt gets in the way and is probably for videographers mostly so I'm going to replace it.
    - Is relatively flimsy at full extension and would not trust it in windy weather.
    - Feels unstable on uneven ground with camera on it
    - Long one piece center column
    - Probably best used indoors

      Good for entry-level and perfect balance of portable and stability. I carried it all the way in my Iceland trip in order to take pictures at dark circumstance such as northern light hunting and ice cave explore. It performed very well on this windy island and didn't make hard time to me while carrying it walk (I am a girl).

        This was a gift for my DIL and she couldn't be happier with it. It's perfect for taking shots of her family. She likes that it's light weight, folds down small and came with a carrying bag. She's still in the diaper bag stage of her life and the carrying case is very handy to have.

          It is a sturdy little travel tripod that does support a dslr with a decent sized lens on it. Only 2 cons: 1 plastic bits make me kinda nervous but they're holding up alright. 2 I wish there was a hook in the middle to hang a camera bag or some other weight like some other travel tripods.

            It turns out that this, compact and lightweight tripod is now my "better" one because I will be using it much more than my other model that is heavier, taller, more stable and has a few more head adjustments. My only negative is a vertical extension piece that unscrews so you can get the tripod head much closer to the ground. I wish it telescoped instead of being a loose piece. It still deserves 5 stars.

                    Comments about Pro 340DX Tripod (Black) with 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head:

                    I am an amateur photographer. I read a lot of reviews on a lot of sites and looked at quite a few tripods before selecting the Slik 340 DX. Many of the reviews said that you cannot find a decent tripod for under $ and most are junk. Something that an amateur photographer must realize is that most of these are from professionals that require very high-quality tripods in the studio and are not targeting amateurs who only need one for casual use. I found this tripod to be high quality, sturdy, and meets my needs very well. i have used it to take time exposures up to 30 seconds and stationary subjects remain crisp and clear. My camera has a door on the bottom to access memory card and battery. The quick release mount when attached to the camera is small enough to allow me to open the door and access them without removing the mount. The height range of the tripod is everything an amateur could want and it folds up in a compact package making it very portable .This tripod is very reasonably priced and frankly I was surprised at how sturdy and well designed it is. Anyone purchasing this item would enjoy it for many years.

                      I've had this tripod for several months and traveled around a lot with it. It was my steady companion on my Iceland trip, where we had to deal with lots of changing weather conditions and terrain. It held up really well and I like the ease of use and lightness of the tripod. The quick release plate is really convenient too.

                      The one flaw is the tilt head. You can pan pretty easily with this and make sure it won't tilt up or down but theres no way to make sure the camera won't tilt to the side. If you accidentally bump the tripod, the wind is too strong or you are moving with it the camera can very easily tilt to the side. It may not sound that bad but having to readjust your camera to look straight out over and over is frustrating.

                          Love that it's light weight. Can get low to the ground by removing the bottom of the center rod. Easy to use.

                            Sets up in a snap. Flip locks work well and the 3-2ay pan/tilt head make for easy manuevering. I use the tripod for both a video camera and spotting scope. Great value!!

                                I use this to film my sons wrestling matches, as well as the team. It replced the previous tripod I lost somewhere. This was cheaper and feels much more expensive. I like it a lot!

                                  I'm a beginner photographer and this is my first tripod. Good price for a lightweight tripod. I've used it on uneven surfaces already and the legs are pretty stable. Easy to take on hikes and folds down small. Working great so far! Camera seems very stable on the head.

                                      I bought this because it seemed like a well-built tripod for the price. It's just tall enough for me to use standing up fully, and I'm 6 feet tall.

                                      The weight capacity seems above average for this kind of tripod and I would feel comfortable putting my hefty 7D with a medium large zoom lens on this.

                                      I don't think this usually comes with a bag, but B&H had a deal going on where you get a bag free.
