The NEW SLIK PRO 780 DX tripod uses the widely popular PRO 700 DX legs in black color, coupled with a new SH-807E heavier duty 3-Way pan head. .
A.M.T. makes all the difference.
SLIKs exclusive A.M.T. super Aluminum-Magnesium-Titanium alloy legs make the PRO 780 DX tripod heavy-duty and rock steady, yet lighter than it looks. The A.M.T. alloy has a 40% greater strength to weight ratio than standard aluminum, making it lighter and stronger than the standard metal used in most tripods.
The PRO 780 DX is capable of supporting the weight of professional digital cameras and heavy telephoto lenses up to a 400 mm f/2.8. This complete tripod offers 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 and more portable than many professional offerings from other manufacturers.
A tripod should be solid and easy to use, so you spend more time concentrating on your photography than you do your equipment.
The PRO 780 DX black tripod makes setting up easy with secure, speed-release leg locks, gearless center column and 3-position, adjustable angle leg locks allow easy set-up on uneven ground or steps. The PRO 780 DX center column is actually two threaded pieces that unscrew to convert the top piece to a short column. This combined with the adjustable leg angle locks allows the tripod to be lowered to just 15 inches for very low angle or macro photography in the field.
SH-807E Stable all-metal head with easy-to-use quick release.
Included with the PRO 780 DX is a new SH-807E all-metal 3-way pan head. This head has improved internal components for smoother movements and improved, larger rubberized grips for more comfortable control. The head has well over a solid pound of finely cast and precisely machined aluminum. It uses a fast and easy to use quick-release plate to securely mount the camera on the tripod.
