The Slik's exclusive A.M.T. super Aluminum-Magnesium-Titanium alloy legs make the Pro 700 BH 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. Capable of handling the weight of large format (4x5) field cameras or heavy, long telephoto lenses, The Pro 700 BH 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. The Pro 700 BH 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 Pro 700 BH 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 24.4 inches for low angle or macro photography in the field.
This tripod includes the Ball Head 800, which has one of the fasted and easiest quick release plates in the industry. Slik made a circular quick release plate with 1/4 mount that can secure the camera to the tripod pointing in any direction, making attaching your camera more intuitive than most other heads that have squared off or angled plates. For Medium or large format photographers there is a circular quick release with a 3/8 mount post available.
