    Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

    I've been producing videos for local artists in South Texas at bars where folks are sometimes tipsy. The lightweight tripods I usually use make me nervous as they are easily knocked over. So I thought I'd put a little money to it and buy a good tripod for a change. For shooting video like I do this has proven a good tripod. If you bump the tripod it's not going to just fall over. It's so large in fact I feel it's got a presence and folk see it well enough to avoid it. Since the tripod is so robust I thought I'd push my luck weight wise and mounted a 70D with a light lens, 50mm f1.4, along with a EOS M with 22mm lens mounted to it's hot shoe - the result was I felt confident to leave the rigging alone for a shoot which was great, I had a medium and wide shot from the same perspective without the use of two tripods. Recommend and would buy again.

      Professional grade tripod at less than half the price of comparable products. I use other tripods for work with a much higher price tag and this has been excellent. Very stable and keeps my Canon 5D Mark iii in place.

        Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

        I was considering a first tripod for my camera (Nikon D5200). After looking at many different websites with reviews for camera tripods, a seasoned photographer of 25 years recommended this model as a excellent choice compared to more expensive makes and models. After reading many many very positive reviews here and on other websites like @, and @, I saw the model and decided to give it a try. Assembly was very easy indeed, a piece of cake. Tried the new tripod out taking 10 second exposures at night. It was a bit windy but weight of this tripod kept my photos free of camera shake. For a first tripod, I would certainly recommend this model to anyone needing a sturdy, well built camera tripod. You will NOT be disappointed :)

        This is a well made tripod replacing a crickety one I had that cost $[$]. It is a bit heavy though, not one you'd take on a backpacking trip.

          Was needing a new tripod for my camera. Went to B&H photo's website and searched for camera tripods. Saw this one and noticed how strong and sturdy it was made. Decided to give it a shot and for the price, was a Great Deal!! Ordered it on a Monday and by that Friday, I received my new tripod. Went together in a snap!!! Tried it out and with me being a Tall person, the extra height helps a lot!! Love this and would certainly recommend anyone needing a camera tripod, I would highly recommend them getting this one from B
          &H photo. You will NOT be disappointed :)

                Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

                I bought this tripod to use with 20x80 binoculars for stargazing. It needed to be sturdy and vibration free - and this product does not dissappoint. It is rated to handle up to 19-lbs well more than than I need for my 6-lb binoculars. Though a bit heavy for traveling with my SLR camera (I have a smaller one for that) it is a great platform for a studio tripod.

                The product is very well made ..impressive.

                    I got this tripod to use in my portrait studio. It is a bit heavy, but very solid. I don't plan on hauling it around very much, but I can if I need to. It replaces a very old worn out tripod. I like it because it is rock solid. I also like the fact that it is about eye level with me without raising the center post. I am 6'1" and most tripods are just not tall enough for me, especially in this price range.

                    Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

                    I bought this tripod to use with a new Vortex Razor Spotting scope. I knew before hand that this was a heavy tripod but it was less of an issue for me due to planned use near vehicles / horses.

                    It is indeed rock steady. Even in moderate wind I noticed only minor vibration through the spotter. this thing is at eye height with the legs extended but the center post fully retracted, very stable.

                    The pan head is the only reason for it not being a 5 star review. Its pretty good but it does jerk along at times when panning due to friction. Some day I would like to replace the head.

                    I would rate the tripod by itself as 5/5 when comparing it to other tripods in its catagory. If I had endless funds I would have bought a carbon fiber tripod and a high end fluid head, but due to budget concerns, this really is a great buy for what you get.

                    Very pleased with it so far.

                          I am a novice photographer who was told to buy a tripod. After reading reviews and looking at many tripods I showed my teacher this one and he thought it looked good. Well, he was right. It is very sturdy and structurally sound. For a novice or amateur photographer I think this will suit your needs very well. And it's easy to work. Nothing complex to deal with.
