Slik Pro 614DX User Reviews
High quality, but light tripod
“This tripod is very well made and remarkable sturdy for being less than three pounds. It is listed as being able to support 4.5 lbs. When I bought it, I intended to use it as travel tripod for use with my Nikon D300 with the 18-200 lens. That camera/lens combination is about 3 pounds. Even though the tripod could support this weight, I did not feel comfortable with this camera/lens on it. It just did not seem sturdy enough. The head that comes along with the tripod is also on the light side.” – By Dave

Slik Pro 614DX Features & Specifications
The SLIK PRO 614 DX tripod uses space-age carbon fiber material to reduce weight and improve rigidity for a more stable camera support. This model uses four leg sections to fold down to an incredibly small 17.9 inches and weighing less than two pounds making it the easiest traveling carbon fiber tripod that reaches eye-level when fully extended.
The PRO 614 DX has the same legs as the PRO 614 CF but the DX model included an all-metal SLIK SH704E 3-Way pan head with Quick-Release plate (SH-704E). It has SLIK Twist-Lock Leg Locks to insure sturdy camera support. The Twist-Lock legs allow the tripod to support up to 6.6 pounds of camera equipment, more than enough to handle a digital SLR. The tripod is an excellent traveler, and the included tripod bag makes carrying The PRO 614 DX more comfortable.
The PRO 614 DX maximum height reaches 61 inches, eye level. For low angle photography it has multi-angle leg locks that allow the angle of each leg to be positioned individually. Combined with the included short column, this full sized tripod can be lowered to just 4.35 inches from the ground. Another benefit of the multi-angle leg locks the tripods ability for easy set-up and positioning on uneven ground or steps.
