Slik 340DX overview

  • 1Description

This black, SLIK Pro 340 DX Tripod with SH-705E 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head supports up to 8.8 lb, measures 19.3" when folded, and includes a quick release plate. Each of its 4-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 18.1", or 9.0" when the center column is shortened. The SLIK Pro 340 DX Tripod provides a maximum height of 45.8", 48.9" with its center column shortened as well as fully raised, and 58.0" 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.

    Slik 340DX reviews

    Pro 340 DX Tripod with SH-705E 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 161.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid tripod for a good price I'll keep this short and sweet, Spent about 2 hours looking all over the web for the best tripod for the price between weight, heigh, folded length, and durability. This one seemed to be that one and I am very happy with it. It feels super solid folded and extended, good height, folds up to a small size, and the head feel solid when tightening. For the price without paying for carbon fiber, this is a deal you can't be. The case is a little strange though, much larger than the tripod's folded height. Durability 10/10 Height 9.5/10 Folded Length 10/10 Head Strength 10/10 Case 7/10 Weight 8/10 Likely to recommend for the price 10/10

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slik 340DX The tripod I had was to large (long when folded up) and heavy to take hiking/backpacking. I looked at the carbon fiber tripods but they were way past my budget. This was priced in my range, had a small fold up size that made it easy to attach to the outside of my backpacks. It had a to of good reviews on a lot of different sites. Used it for the fist time this weekend and it did everything I expected it to do. Very pleased. I might look for a lighter head but it would be more of a fine tune than issue. Had a friend order a Slik 500 and he wishes he had got the 340. I would recommend the 340 to others.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best for Travel 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

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done! I needed a tripod that was sturdy for a Nikon D90, that had the three way pan/tilt and was within my price range. This was it. For the price you're getting a pretty good piece of equipment if your a photographer starting out. Too much for a point and shoot, to small for a bulkier camera but just right for a smaller DSLR. This Tripod folds up small and is very light. Mine came with a free tripod case too unfortunately the only way to fit it in is to constantly remove one of the handles and screw it in the the other. Also, there is NO level or any kind of marking on the head to see if your pan or tilt level or to get a more accurate degree of what slant you're doing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality for the price I ordered this tripod expecting a slight step up from my flimsy old one my dad had given me as a hand me down since I'm just beginning to get into photography as a career, but when this came, I was honestly impressed. It's sturdy and extremely durable, you can tell just by holding it this isn't going to fall apart if it gets banged around a bit. The legs are thick and don't wobble at all. The only thing I would suggest is buying a pistol grip head instead and swapping it out with the pan handle, but that's obviously not something everyone would agree upon. I would definately buy this tripod again and reccomend it to any photo enthusiast.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bang for the buck! I purchased the 340DX to start a self portrait project. The tripod has met my need in ease of use and quick adjustment and is fairly light weight while securly holding my D7000. I am 5-2 so the height range works well for me. I was a little apprehensive to setup at night on grass but the 340DX was stable when used with a wireless remote. I read reviews on this site that disclosed the lack of a level and I thought it would not be an issue for me but I have not found a way to easily compensate for the lack of the level. I have not used the travel bag but it looks good and would at least offer some exposure protection. Overall I am pleased with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lightweight Tripod with load capacity lower than indicated I purchased this tripod after deciding that the 700DX wasfar too big to be hauled around.Actually it is very compact and portable. The onlylimitation to consider is that the load capacity of 5Kgshould be reduced by half and that the equipment should bewell balanced on top of it, waiting for the central columnto stop vibrating. Actually I shot a Nikon F3 HP with MD4and with Nikkor 300mm EDIF wide open, column extended andthe pictures were sharp. Only precaution to use a remoterelease or the self timer. And wait for the column to stopvibrating.The paper instructions by SLIK say that load capacity isslightly over 2.5 Kg. Scan of instructions card availableupon request.But for a lightweight portable tripod it's fine! And thehead and the quick release are very handy.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great tripod with one flaw 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.
