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

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

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

Verified Buyer

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.

          Professional grade tripod at less than half the price of comparable products. I use other tripods for work with a much higher price tag and this has been excellent. Very stable and keeps my Canon 5D Mark iii in place.

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

            I was considering a first tripod for my camera (Nikon D5200). After looking at many different websites with reviews for camera tripods, a seasoned photographer of 25 years recommended this model as a excellent choice compared to more expensive makes and models. After reading many many very positive reviews here and on other websites like @, and @, I saw the model and decided to give it a try. Assembly was very easy indeed, a piece of cake. Tried the new tripod out taking 10 second exposures at night. It was a bit windy but weight of this tripod kept my photos free of camera shake. For a first tripod, I would certainly recommend this model to anyone needing a sturdy, well built camera tripod. You will NOT be disappointed :)

            This is a well made tripod replacing a crickety one I had that cost $[$]. It is a bit heavy though, not one you'd take on a backpacking trip.

              Was needing a new tripod for my camera. Went to B&H photo's website and searched for camera tripods. Saw this one and noticed how strong and sturdy it was made. Decided to give it a shot and for the price, was a Great Deal!! Ordered it on a Monday and by that Friday, I received my new tripod. Went together in a snap!!! Tried it out and with me being a Tall person, the extra height helps a lot!! Love this and would certainly recommend anyone needing a camera tripod, I would highly recommend them getting this one from B
              &H photo. You will NOT be disappointed :)
