The Pro 780DX Tripod with 3-Way Head from Slik is a multi-use tripod and head combination which features a set of Slik's aluminum, magnesium, and titanium alloy legs with a SH-807E 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head.

Designed for use both in the studio and the field, the Pro 780DX is capable of handling most shooting situation and adapting to the user. With a maximum height of 77" and a minimum working height of 16.3", the tripod can be used at high or low angles and can accommodate the height of most users. With a load capacity of 19.8 lb, the 780DX can support most DSLRs and smaller cameras with ease, while it's total weight of 6.9 lb also makes it easy to carry over short distances.

The tripod's 3-section A.M.T. leg construction makes it equally as strong and up to 40-percent lighter than comparable tripod models. Combined with Slik's sturdy flip-style leg locks, the tripod is impressively rigid and resistant to shaking and vibrations.

The SH-807E 3-way pan and tilt head included with the tripod has been chosen to equal the weight capacity and the functionality of the 780DX's A.M.T. legs. Featuring three separate locking handles, the head allows the user to independently pan, level, and orient their camera to the desired shooting position. A quick release clamp is also integrated into the head to allow quick and easy attachment and detachment of your camera from the tripod. A proprietary quick release plate is also included.

Grooves on all leg segments eliminate leg twist and increase strength
Omni-directional quick release plate can be mounted in any direction, with dual safety locks
Individual 3-position leg angle locks for low angle work or use on uneven terrain
Rubber leg tips for maximum traction outdoors and protection to surface indoors

    Pro 780DX Tripod with 3-Way Head is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tripod Maybe I'm just used to junky tripods. This one is far and away best one I've owned. I bought a junker on another website (starts with an a) and promptly returned it. This on is a keeper. Solid. Percision made in Japan (not China). Easy to use and it holds my 60d with battery grip and heavier lens - no problem. This tripod has a little weight to it which I like. Tougher for my camera to tip over. Got more than I expected and would definitely buy again. Bought extra locking plate for my other camera. Do yourself a favor and get this tripod and but you photography gear from b & h.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK Tripod, but mine came broken Tripod is just what I wanted but when I took it out of the package I heard something rattling around in the leg. I knew it was a bad sound and when I pulled the foot off it, a spring that looked like the kind that goes inside a ballpoint click pen fell out. It didn't look important and so far it's been working just fine. I can't imagine that a spring like that would actually do anything useful. However, I wasn't pleased that I had to open it and find that. It's a little unnerving to trust many thousands of dollars worth of gear on something like this, but I just can't afford the time to send this back for a replacement. Maybe Slik needs to work on its quality control a little more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than I expected I love the height and sturdiness of this tripod. At locations I use it as flash stand at its full height. It is sturdy that I know it will hold my camera and tele lens or my flash in place. I like that it comes with a carrying case. At first I was considering getting a case when I order the tripod but after I received my order I saw that it came with a case. The only CON is that I have to unscrew the side-tilt lock handle to stow the tripod in its carrying bag, but I'll get over it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value for Money This model is not sold in Canada. But don't miss out on this excellent tripod it is money well spent and worth the effort to order internationally. Sturdy with quality locks & adjustments on legs, it is easy to set up to your preference and very stable. I'm impressed with the pan & tilt and ability to adjust center column for close up photo work. Although it's got enough weight to discourage a long trek it is certainly not too much for most requirements even for a petit person. I'm very pleased with the 780DX & for myself, I rather doubt I'll ever need another tripod with the exception of an air travel compact lightweight alternative. The 780DX is a star performer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds my expectations At 6'5, I was looking for an extra tall tripod so I could stop leaning over to use the view finder on my camera. My camera rig is also very heavy, so I needed a tripod that, even at full extension, could handle the extra weight and not sway. This tripod was advertised to meet those requirements, and does in fact meet them. It doesn't pack down as much as I would like for convenience of travel, but that was a known sacrifice I was making for height and strength.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for the serious photographer This tripod would be great for use around the house and yard, but if you plan to use it for landscape photography buy something else. This is a hefty tripod, one of the reasons I bought it, but it has given me plenty of headaches in the field. I did one shoot on a beach and some sand got on the legs, imagine that, I wiped them down but it still got inside and made it nearly impossible to extend the legs until I disassembled the whole unit, cleaned it and put it back together again. I did another shoot along a stream, fall colors/waterfall stuff, and the legs somehow held water inside and leaked it out for weeks. The quick release camera mount is poorly designed and not really quick at all! You macro guys will want to look elsewhere as well. This tripod is slow to level on uneven ground, and if you want to shoot low, forget about it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Purchase This tripod is used mostly for attaching a spotting scope to. It is sturdy, easy to adjust, solid and steady. I also use it for night scoping planets and the moon, for which I need a particularly stable and steady head, which this provides. There is no creep no matter at what angle I have the scope. Weight, in this case, is not a con but a benefit for it adds stability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Tripod It's difficult for me to understand how people think this is a heavy tripod. Do you even lift? A.) This is not a heavy tripod. 2.) You want a heavy tripod because it's usually holding up ten thousand dollars worth of camera and lenses. And D.) Stop trying to backpack everything, and just muscle it around.The 780DX is very lightweight for the sturdiness you get, with a nice wide base. I don't have to worry about this thing blowing over in the wind. I've carried it around for hours and I'm not a big guy (big enough), so maybe you people complaining just needs to get some more sunlight. I've taken it outdoors; forest setting, beach setting, etc. It didn't take on water, and obviously there was no rusting, or scratches so far, and I don't baby this thing. The clip is a little tough, but I'd rather have it tough than flimsy. You pry it open. The sticks (not legs) are short which you can see in the photograph; especially if you perched a large camera up top, they'll barely get out from under it. They do the job though, and I'm beginning to prefer them to longer sticks which seem to rubberband. They screw into the head, and I enjoy that by slightly unscrewing the sticks, you are able to adjust the pan and tilt in the head and then quickly lock it back in; it's convenient and it feels great.The legs are tough. I've smacked them into things, hit stuff with them, etc. They don't rattle, and are simple to extend. I can't stand the screw locks, so I'm happy this pod came with fliplocks. They are solid as well, and do not come loose.The head is fantastic. Once again, I don't understand what people are complaining about. Three bubbles in the head insure precise leveling. The pan and tilt are glossy smooth. There are plenty of degree measurments to easily line and realign a shot. The tripod clip is nice and corky and will obviously strap to anything.Lastly, it comes with a flimsy bag which seems to be made of that material with which they construct those drawstring backpacks that fall apart in the rain. So if you've got the dough, there's no reason not to shell out on the more expensive version. They'll be an option to buy when you checkout. I use this tripod for film, not photography. It honestly does more than I'd even expect a tripod to do; which is, hold up my camera. It is a sturdy pod which will last me for many years.- JL
