The New SLIK PRO 340 DX Black compact travel tripod with 3-way pan head makes an excellent traveling companion for your point-and-shoot camera or light-weight Digital SLR. The NEW PRO 340 DX Black is the same tripod as the SLIK PRO 340 DX, but with black finished legs instead of the traditional A.M.T metal finish. A.M.T. makes all the difference. SLIK's exclusive A.M.T. super Aluminum-Magnesium-Titanium alloy legs make the PRO 340 DX Black tripod 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. PRO 340 DX Black Tripod 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 340 DX Black makes setting up easy with secure, speed-release leg locks (example pictured left). Padded leg wraps make the tripod more comfortable to carry. A gearless center column and 3-position, adjustable angle leg locks allow easy set-up on uneven ground or steps. The adjustable angle locks combined with the PRO 340 DX Short Column (optional accessory) allow the tripod to be lowered to just 10 inches for very low angle or macro photography in the field. Stable all-metal head with easy-to-use quick release.
