Slik Pro 340 BH overview

  • 1Description

The Slik Pro 340 BH is an all-metal tripod setup effective for lightweight travel duty with small SLR systems.  It has 27mm diameter upper leg segments and is rated for supporting 8.8 pounds of gear (4kg).

The feel of the 340's operations inspires professional confidence:  leg segments extend/collapse with precise motion and no lateral play, the locks are positive, and the stubby lever for the ballhead communicates its locked/unlocked position both by feel and by sight.

The 340's A.M.T. super titanium alloy legs make the tripod steady yet lighter than it appears, with a 40% greater strength/weight ratio than normal aluminum.

Speed Release Lock levers allow for fast set up
3-Position leg locks allow for leg openings of independent angles
Angled rubber leg tips maximize traction to flat, hard surfaces (and also allow carry on to aircraft)
Foam covered upper leg sections ease handling in extreme weather conditions
Single-lever ball head with quick release and 2 bubble levels at quick release plate
Maximum upper leg diameter of 27mm

    Slik Pro 340 BH reviews

    Pro 340 BH 4-Section Tripod w/ SBH-200DQ Ballhead - Supports 8.8 lbs (4kg) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I got my tripod just before the 4th of July and was planning on shooting a fireworks show...all of the pictures came out better then expected and had no trouble with the tripod...it is the perfect size for taking it hiking and the weight wasn't to bad the ball head was a little smaller then the Manfrotto heads but the price was right...it took a little while getting use to the ball head but liked the one knob control...it had no problem holding all my gear and think the weight limit is a conservative estimate @ 8.8lbs...the only problem I can see with it is the maximum height if you are over 6 feet you might want to look else where...for the money it's a winner

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight tripod I have owned this tripod for three years. I am a semi-pro photographer but I do a lot of my work on extended trips in the backcountry. I needed something with professional features (can support an SLR, has a ballhead, levels) but also is light and compact enough that I can justify lugging it miles on my back. This tripod has fit the bill in all regards. Despite much abuse over hundreds of miles of backcountry hiking, being set up in the middle of streams and rivers, and being used in all types of weather it has stood the test of time. Only recommendation would be to glue the rubber feet to the legs if you plan to use in snow. Lost one that way and had to get SLIK send me a replacement, but haven't had a problem since gluing two years ago.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good, solid tripod This is great for hiking. I clip it to my belt and always keep it with me. It is a compromise and I still have mixed feelings. I appreciate the low cost and low weight. It folds short enough to fit into my luggage. But it is not comfortable for prolonged use since it is so short.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tripod After lugging my big tripod eight miles on the Appalatian Trail I knew I needed something lighter and this little gem just fits the bill. I have nothing but praises for this little tripod. It proved to be very stable with my Nikon D80 with all my lenses. Price was well within my budget. Ball head was positive,sturdy and compact, but takes some getting use to if you've never used one. Leg locks were positive with no slipping. Weight was less than half of what I had been carrying. This pod won't take the place of my big one but for hiking and such it sure was a load off my backpack.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid performer My son and I, who are avid amatuer birders, have both purchased this tripod. Myself first who wanted a discrete ball head motion for the camera. This ball head holds my Canon 100-400 Telephoto lens easily - never slips. My son has a Sigma 170-500 Telephoto lens and the same for him. It's a lightweight, extremely flexible tripod height wise as it extends to just about eye height (and I am 5' 11), to very low if you remove the removable pipes. I've only done this as a test, not in the field and it was impressive. I thought the foam might eventually wear or tear and after 3 years, it has not budged. Same as the day I bought it. It's an incredibly durable and solid tripod for the money. You will not be disappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light but solid The bag is big enough to fit the alternate 3way head but is too large for the ballhead. I put 5 1/2 pounds on ball head with the tripod fully extended. The canon 7D with the 100-400 lens would not tip it over. I mounted the body to the ball head instead of the lens mount. The tripod can be knocked over if you bump it but it is completely solid for normal field use. The legs can be extended outward to produce a very low and very solid mount. The center post unscrews to allow the advertised low position. Not clear why you would need the optional center post

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, light, solid tripod This tripod is great choice for the traveling photographer - small enough to fit in a backpack or carry-on suitcase. Very well-built with pro features, my only complaint is how skinny the final leg section is - but otherwise a great buy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hiker's best friend Gave this a test drive this past weekend when I went hiking along a very rocky trail. I carried it instead of putting it in a backpack and loved the light weight. I set it up on several boulders and adjusted the height quite a bit. I never had a ballhead before which took a little getting used to, but everything worked great. Not sure how stable this would be in windy conditions, but it is a perfect hiker's companion.
