Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

I use this with a D7200 and sometimes have a Sigma 150-600 lens mounted on it. It works well. It may be a little heavy, but I'm a big guy, and it doesn't bother me at all. Very stable tripod.

Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

I've had a couple of tripods and this one is the best! It is solid, has that quality feel when changing angles or moving horizontally. Nothing cheap here! To be complete I would have made the screw longer as my camera and bins could use an extra thread or two but a tight turn usually does the trick!

Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

Haven't had a chance to use this as of yet but I can tell you it is very sturdy and should handle most camera's/lenses. It is a bit heavy for travel. I also noted what some other reviewers have mentioned in that it won't fit in it's nylon case with a ball head mounted. As such, the case is kind of useless. All in all, I wanted a sturdy tripod that won't shake with a little wind. This certainly meets that criteria.

Excellent choice

Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

I wanted a tripod that would be sturdy when used with heavy equipment. When I mounted my camera with battery grip and my 80-200 2.8, it proved itself. No problems adjusting its settings and the two levels helped keep the camera in proper position. A very secure tripod at a reasonable price.

Definate buy

Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

I reviewed several different brands of tripods and ultimately took the advise of a friend who uses spotting scopes and tripods for work. He said "Get a Slik" and he was right. It's well weighted to provide stability but no so heavy that it's cumbersome to carry around down a trail. The legs lock in place well with no slippage and the head maintains position. The movement of the head is smooth. It's not so loose that you can't pan slowly while looking through the lens but not so tight that you have to apply too much force and "skip" your field of view. I'm very happy with my purchase and look forward to using it later this year on vacation for both our spotting scope and camera.

Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

Very solid tripod. With the solid feeling, definitely one of the heavier ones used. Padded legs make it easy to carry without the bag/case.
Great for the price. Easy to use and comes with a carrying case.

You can pay a lot more but not get a better tripod

By Vincent

Verified Buyer

Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

I have many tripods but this one is hands down the very best. It's sturdy enough to hold my camera and 500mm lens. Since its aluminum, magnesium and titanium it is very durable and very well made. Great for outdoor landscape and wildlife photography. I have several other SLIK tripods. You can pay a lot more but why? It is heavy but not so heavy to be difficult to transport. I highly recommend it and the price is great.

I have three of these and have sold many of them to students and employees of mine just by letting them borrow it. Best bang for the buck for a tripod I have ever found. The last one I sold was 20 years old and just need some paint from wear on the head.

Solod Platform

By Tooth Doc

Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

Fully assembled I would give it 5 stars. It appears to be rock solid, easily adjusted and able to handle heavier equipment. I graded it down for two reasons. One, it came with no instructions. Assembly is not rocket science but it is supplied with adjustment knobs of two different lengths and I could not screw the longer one in completely. With no instructions I wondered if they sent the wrong part. Two, I eventually had to protect the knob handle with a leather glove and grasp it with a vice-grip to completely seat it. Once seated it functioned normally and I could loosen and tighten it.

Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

This seems to be a discontinued product. But for the price and quality, it is great. It is huge and a little heavy. But that is what I wanted....I am still to get comfortable with the pan/tilt action...the handles seem to be a little longer and I haven't found a proper way to put the tripod in the bag with the handles attached to the head. Hopefully there's a way.

Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

Just recently bought this product but very pleased. It is very solid and does exactly what I needed it to do. As others have said it is heavier than some other tripods but it is hard to find any product that you can have it both ways--solid, strong, but like a feather..

Silk tripod

By PaulE

from Undisclosed

Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

This is my 2nd Silk tripod, I bought a much smaller one 20 years ago and still using it. This recently purchased Silk is much larger, I'm using it for heavy stargazing binoculars, works great. I made a wise choice and very pleased with my purchase.

Couldn't ask for more !

By Elias

Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

The headline says it ! I'm super pleased with this tripod. If your looking for a bomb proof, sturdy tripod this is your guy. Don't expect it to be light though it does have some weight. But it's not that bad at all with weight comes stability so you can shoot with some wind going or water flowing. I Just recently took a trip to Yosemite and hiked with it on my back and had no trouble.

A heavy-hitter at a good price

By Advanced Amateur

Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

Rock-solid, kind of heavy as a result. High reach. Easy and secure quick-connect plate. Not thrilled with the two handles sticking off in different directions... complicates storage... but the design choice seems popular these days. The pan friction lock could be improved, but works. But overall a very good product at a very good price. I'm a happy customer.

      Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

      It is heavy -weight is not a concern for us
      Durable
      The disk system to hold the camcorder is amazing and has such a minimal movement it is hardly worth mentioning.
      The height fully extended to the middle of my lens is 75"
      So easy to adjust- set it and forget it it's not moving!
      I spent the money on this after buying cheap ones ... so worth it!

        Comments about Slik Pro 700DXQ AMT Tripod With 3-Way Pan and Tilt Head (Black):

        I've been producing videos for local artists in South Texas at bars where folks are sometimes tipsy. The lightweight tripods I usually use make me nervous as they are easily knocked over. So I thought I'd put a little money to it and buy a good tripod for a change. For shooting video like I do this has proven a good tripod. If you bump the tripod it's not going to just fall over. It's so large in fact I feel it's got a presence and folk see it well enough to avoid it. Since the tripod is so robust I thought I'd push my luck weight wise and mounted a 70D with a light lens, 50mm f1.4, along with a EOS M with 22mm lens mounted to it's hot shoe - the result was I felt confident to leave the rigging alone for a shoot which was great, I had a medium and wide shot from the same perspective without the use of two tripods. Recommend and would buy again.
