Slik 500DX overview

  • 1Description

The Slik Pro 500DX Tripod Legs is a full size eye-level set of tripod legs that uses Tri-Titanium material - a strong aerospace alloy compromised of aluminum, magnesium and titanium - for its construction. The Slik Pro 500DX tripod has a strength-to-weight ratio 40% greater than comparable tripods in its class.

As part of the Pro DX line, this tripod is ideal for the serious amateur photographer that is looking for the best value in a sturdy camera support. It sports many features usually only found on bigger and heavier "pro" models.

Grooves on all leg segments eliminate leg twist and increase strength
Individual 3-position leg angle locks for low angle work or use on uneven terrain
Lift'n'lock center column breaks down into 2 parts. Short column is ideal for low-angle use
Rubber leg tips for maximum traction outdoors and protection to surface indoors
Maximum upper leg diameter of 26.8mm

    Slik 500DX reviews

    500DX Pro Tripod Legs - Supports 10 lb (4.5 kg) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best legs for the price Legs are very sturdy, they extend easily, and the locks hold tight. The legs can adjust to three different shooting angles and they adjust easily and quickly. The center column is a two piece column that unscrews in the middle to turn it into a short center column. This is very useful for low angle shoot when you need a short center column. These are not as heavy as other people make it sound but they are not the lightest set of legs in the world either. What they are is sturdy and inexpensive. So in other words the perfect set of legs for those of us on a budget!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Legs I use this tripod for 1. Slower shutter speed (also for effects) 2. Video recording 3. Self-portrait The tripod is easy to fold and unfold, doesn't make noise. The rubber padded ends make placing of the tripod easy and sturdy even in uneven places. It is of a good height and weight (not too heavy, not too light that it gets blown by wind). I like it alot. The only thing that I don't like is the case that comes with it. I'll be ordering another bag just for the convenience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great legs Had tripod for a couple of weeks now and am very satisfied. Lots of adjustments and very stable. Does what I expect a tripod to do. A bit heavy to carry around all day but I'd rather have that than something flimsy and prone to falling apart.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy and stable. Value for money. Used mostly at my studio, but has been used on location also. It's very stable, and holds rather heavy loads with no problem. On the negative side it's a little heavy to tug around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Product I have some heavy camera gear and found this product very stable and of solid construction. This is my second similar tripod and it provides a great platform for my photgraphy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works for me Looking for an all around tripod and after a fair amount of research I chose this tripod coupled with a AF-11ooE pistol grip head. Very satisfied with overall performance
