Slik Pro 500 DX Tripod with SH-705E Pan/Tilt ... Overview

This SLIK Pro 500 DX Tripod with SH-705E 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head supports up to 11.0 lb, measures 27.4" when folded, and includes a quick release plate. Each of its 3-section legs features an independent spread, a 3-position angle lock, and flip locks for fast deployment. The included push-and-pull, rapid center column is multi-sectional, which allows it to be converted to a shortened center column. This feature permits a minimum height of 19.8" or 13.8" when the center column is shortened. The SLIK Pro 500 DX Tripod provides a maximum height of 53.8", 58.0" with its center column shortened as well as fully raised, and 64.0" with the complete column fully raised.

Cameras, sport optics, or camcorders that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the quick release plate, which is secured to the tripod's pan-and-tilt head using a quick release cam lock. The head can be rotated 360°, and tilted 90° backwards or forwards, as well as sideways for portrait orientation. Each of these three movements function independently of each other and can be locked into place.

For added versatility, the center column is reversible, facilitating low-angle photography where an attached camera is positioned among the tripod's legs instead of above them. Foam covers on each of the legs provide a secure and comfortable grip while moving the tripod, and rubber feet help to enhance stability on a wide variety of surfaces.

question

What is the model number of the head? (example slik sh-705E). The reason I'm asking is according to Slik website it shows the head included is ABLE 300 DX but B & H is showing this head is discontinued.
Asked by: Anonymous
The head on the Slik Pro 500DX tripod is not sold separate. It is not an ABLE 300DX head. It is one made specific for the 500DX and is not listed by Slik. If you need a replacement head you can contact us direct via chat or you can call us.
