About the Slik DST-43

The Slik/Daiwa DST-43 tripod has a professional true-fluid pan head with 60mm ball mount. The tripod can handle up to 4kgs (8.8 pounds) of camera and equipment. The DST-43 all-metal head comes complete with one pan handle but has handle mounts on both sides of the head for two-handle use. The head has a long-side quick release plate for easy mounting and dismounting of the camera.

There is also an illuminated bubble level that lights up for 20 seconds when it's button is pushed. This makes it easy to set up and level in dark places. 3 Stage legs with dual-rails on the upper stage add stability and prevent snap-back at the end of panning movements. A built-in midlevel spreader is included with the tripod. The DST-43 is an excellent choice for professional compact HD video cameras.
