About Slik 400DX

The PRO 400 DX has many of the same professional features of the PRO 700 DX and even adds a few more of it's own.

The PRO 400 DX is an all-metal tripod, which is more than suitable for digital or 35 mm SLR cameras and medium format cameras. Speed release leg locks make the PRO 400 DX a breeze to set up and take down. The soft grip padded legs, and a folded length of just 25 inches make this lightweight tripod even more of a breeze to carry.

But this is no flimsy camera support, despite its lightweight and ease of use it can hold nearly 10 ponds of camera and lens. Plus the head is removable, so that a variety of other heads, like one of the SLIK ball heads or the Master Classic head for heavy telephoto lenses, can be used in place of the included 3-way pan head with quick release plate.

3 position leg angle locks allow lowering the tripod to for very low angle or macro photography work. It has a short center column built in, just unscrew the column into two pieces and it becomes 6.5 inches shorter. That allows the camera to be only 14 inches off the ground with the legs at their lowest position.

The Slik 400DX is commonly used for Landscape/scenery, Portraits, Stabilization and more.The Slik 400DX is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Slik 400DX: Folds away, Lightweight, Stable and Unfolds quickly

Perfect for on the road!

This is a great piece of gear for the road. It is light and small but strong and stable. You have to unscrew the head handles to pack it in the medium SLIK carrying case but it only takes a couple of minutes. I would purchase this again for use on the road. Handles Canon digital SLR's with big heavy "L" lenses great!

Not so great

Seems stable and well built, but falls apart after some use. The plastic on the leg locks craked and now the legs fall out. Also, the head is stiff and combersome, and the quick release primitave compared to a Bogen or other brand.

Slik Is Slick

By

from Kerrville,Texas  -  Casual Photographer

I love the Slik tripod but it will not work with Nikon D 5000 because you can't open the Live view screen.

Good deal, equal to Bogen

By

from SE KY  -  Pro Photographer

Like a lot of things in life, there are trade offs with tripods. Everyone wants one that weighs 2 pounds and will hold a 400 2.8. This tripod is very solid and will hold my small 4x5 without trouble. I had a lighter tripod and was getting some soft images (even with a 645, not just the 4x5), so I upgraded to this. Its on the heavy side, but that is what I had to give up to get solid. If you are shooting a DSLR with smaller lenses you could get by with something less, but if you want to use 300mm+ or a medium format or large format you need this support. Bogens cost much more and don't perform any better.

Well made

By

from Bellingham, WA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I am a hobby photographer and was looking for a multi-purpose tripod that was light-weight and didn't break the bank. This is one of those products that you could tell is well made right out of the box. Solidly built and quality construction. I am 6' tall and this is a good height tripod for me. The tripod is very functional and I especially like the independently adjustable legs.

An excellent value

By

from Tampa, FL  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

If you can't afford a high dollar tripod, this one is an excellent value for the money. I've had mine for almost a year now, and it still functions great. If I had to change anything, I would replace the head with a Slik AF2100 Ball head to make it faster and easier to use. Overall I am very happy with the product, and would buy another one.

Great lens for the money

By

from Nairobi, Kenya  -  Semi-professional

I didn't have the cash to spend on a 'high-end' tripod, so I went for this one. Straight out of the box, i knew I had a winner here. I'm an engineer by trainng, and I know when something's been well put together. The 400 DX definitely falls into that czategory. It impresses on so many levels. I'd buy a second one in a heartbeat! :)
