Solid sturdy Tripod
“Tripod is excellent. Purchased to take using my Digital SLR to the next level and love this tripod. Considered it a bit heavy when first taking it from the box. But packed it around for 2 hours taking night pictures of christmas lights and never noticed its weight. Windy night and worked great! Definitely recommend “ – By E “two peas in a pod”
Rock solid tripod
“It’s not light and it’s not compact, but it’ll do anything you ask of it with minimal effort on your part. I recommend ordering an extra quick release plate or two. It comes with one, but it’s always nice to have several for a smooth work flow. The storage bag it comes with is very thin and has short handles. It would be nice if it had a little padding and a longer strap for slinging it over a shoulder or across the body, but it’s nice that it comes with a bag.” – By K. A. Cadena
Super sturdy and tall
“This tripod is heavy duty for sure. I will be needing a new head for video but at this point that pan head seems good for photography. I wish it were a little lighter because I’d love to take it out on hikes. I may try it anyway and see how it goes. Overall though, I love the different angles I can get.” – By Vanessa Hernandez
“It is portable and relatively quick to set up but it is not for the hiker looking for a lightweight backpack unit. The unit appears to be infinitely adjustable for a wide variety of vertical and horizontal shots. The tripod extends high enough that I can adjust the camera without ever stooping over. It would even work well for the six foot tall or taller photographer. So far, the 615-315 has been all and more than I was looking for. It is well built, adjustable, stable, and it came with an affordable price tag. “ – By L. Jerrett
“This tripod is beastly! It’s heavy which = extremely stable, it’s tall (I’m over 6 foot tall and can look through it without bending over at a weird angle, and its built well. The pan head is fairly smooth and there are a multitude of adjustments for height, angle, etc. Overall great tripod! “ – By Pete
Much more then expected
“the tripod, after i assembled it, was quite impressive. There’s so many pros, it’s hard to name just the best, but I’ll try. The bubble levels, deceptively useful. The pan-tilt mechanism, quite intuitive. The height, I’m 6’3 and it goes too tall for me. The many different ways of assembling it, you can go low, high, even upside-down! The construction seems very solid and stable and the finish is nice.” – By M. Tannenbaum
Rock solid, weighs a ton
“This is a super tripod that’s rock solid, extends to great height, and has built-in levels and a smoothly panning head. Just be aware that it weighs a ton, so if you’re looking for a tripod to carry around all day this might not be your best choice. “ – By WordLover
SLIK Pro 700 DX
“I ordered this tripod for a 80 MM spotting scope of average weight. While placed on a concrete or soft surface it is able to successfully stabilize the image as well as tripods costing a great deal more than this. The build quality is quite good, it is not lightweight, but this was not sold as being so. I would be fully comfortable putting something much larger on this unit with zero fear of a tip over or leg slides moving unexpectedly. Highly recommended for anyone who plans to use it for a non professional environment, and maybe even for those just getting started in photography as it is a great buy at this price.” – By Enigmatic_pundit
Solid Tripod – Super Value
“Using the tripod at full extension, with a heavy cable attached to the video camera, the tripod was completely stable. Not a hint of vibration or flex anywhere. You can’t go wrong with this tripod, especially at such a great price. I can only echo the comments about it being heavy (it is), but for the stability, height and weight support, any other tripod will be equally so (I checked). If you are shooting with a 3 pound DSLR – it’s overkill. “ – By Michael B.
Get the legs and purchase another head
“This is a really solid tripod and the foam part adds to its light yet sturdy feel. I can put it in the supplied bag and walk around with it without it feeling too heavy (though I’m a big guy, 6’5 225lbs). The panhead is too slow and gets in the way of quickly changing orientation. You have to loosen one or two of the handles, adjust the camera, and re-tighten them again. They are too large and awkward to be operated smoothly. “ – By Edouard S. Mutabazi
Superb tripod! All about choices
“The tripod is extremely stable and easy to set up. This tripod can go extremely high or very low compared to other tripods. And, at all levels, it is stable. I say in the title that this tripod is all about choices… What I mean is that at this price range you can buy a lighter tripod and carry around sandbags to weight it down once its set up to ensure camera stability, or you can buy this rig. At either very high or very low settings, this tripod is stable in windy conditions without bracing the tripod. I never worried that my camera would be damaged from a gust of wind knocking my tripod over.” – By David C. Leaumont

SLIK PRO 700DX Features & Specifications
SLIK’s exclusive A.M.T. super titanium alloy legs make the PRO 700 DX tripod rock steady yet lighter than it looks. The A.M.T. alloy has a 40% greater strength to weight ration than standard aluminum, meaning the legs are lighter weight yet stronger than the standard metal used in most of today’s tripods.
Capable of handling the weight of large format (4×5) field cameras or heavy, long telephoto lenses, The PRO 700 DX offer professional photographers and advanced amateurs the strength and stability they need while its size, and the use of A.M.T. alloy, make it lighter weight and more portable than THE PROFESSIONAL series. A tripod should be easy to use, so that that you spend more time concentrating on your photography than you do your equipment.
The PRO 700 DX makes setting up easy with secure yet fast speed release leg locks, gearless center column, and 3 position adjustable angle leg locks for easy set up on uneven ground or steps. The adjustable angle locks combined with the PRO 700 DX Short Column (optional accessory) allow the tripod to be lowered to just 15 inches for very low angle, or macro photography in the field.
The included PRO 700 DX all-metal 3-way pan head has one of the fasted and easiest to use quick release plates in the industry. SLIK made a circular quick release plate that can secure the camera to the tripod pointing in any direction, making attaching your camera (once the SLIK quick release plate is attached) more intuitive than most other heads that have squared off or angled plates. Value, today it’s more important then ever. Compare the price and features of the PRO 700 DX to other manufacturers’ professional camera supports and you will see that dollar for dollar and feature for feature, this is one of the best values in a professional tripod available.
