Product Description

The latest metal, SLIK's exclusive A.M.T. super titanium alloy legs make the PRO 330 DX lighter weight than similar tripods, but with more rigidity for a more secure hold on your camera. It folds down small to just 23.5 inches and weighs just 3.5 pounds making this tripod great for traveling. The emphasis on the PRO 300 DX is ease of use. Any tripod should be easy to use, so that that you spend more time concentrating on your subject, and enjoying your photography, than you do stressing about and fussing with your equipment. The lightest of the PRO series, the PRO 330 DX makes setting up easy with secure, yet fast speed release leg locks, gearless center column for quick height adjustments, and 3 position adjustable angle legs for easy set up on uneven ground or steps. This adjustable angle feature can also be used to lower the camera for extremely low angle or macro photography out in the field. Despite its featherweight and ease of use, the PRO 330 DX can hold nearly 8 pounds of camera and lens. Perfect for the photographer with a digital camera or lightweight SLR camera and lens. Plus the head is removable, so that a variety of other heads, like one of the SLIK ball heads, can be used in place of the included all-metal 3-way pan head with quick release. With its application of lightweight super alloy, the SLIK PRO 330 DX presents an economical alternative to the more expensive carbon fiber tripods, allowing you to travel light, on any budget.

Very strong and light weight and easy to use.

I have used Slik tripods for years and I have always been very happy with them. Although plastics and lightweight metals are commonly used I have never had any problems with them holding up. I have one Slik U8000 tripod that I have had and used for over 10 years with no trouble.

Let's talk about the Slik Pro 330DX. This is a very nice tripod. It is light and easy to carry. It came with a pan tilt head which was not what I really wanted so I have replaced it with a Manfrotto 484RC2 ballhead. I use this tripod and ballhead combination for my product photography. When I am out hiking or backpacking, I use a Flashpoint F1 ballhead (which can also be purchased here at Amazon). This reduces the overall weight of the tripod and head to less then 3 pounds, which makes hiking with this tripod a whole lot easier. Overall, for me, this makes for a great setup. I have been using this tripod for over 3 months now with no problem whatsoever.

Now, I need to be absolutely clear. This tripod is not going to be adequate to support and stabilize most digital single lens reflex cameras. If you have a larger camera then you need to find a better tripod. But this one works quite well when using lighter digital point and shoot cameras as long as the weather is calm. I use the tripod combinations described above for my Canon Powershot G10 which weighs a couple ounces less then a pound. I have also used this combination for my Pentax ZX-60 35mm single lens reflex camera with the 50mm lens, which weighs a little more then a pound. Technically it is supposed to support equipment that weighs a little over 8 pounds but I would be nervous using something this heavy.

I wanted a really lightweight travel tripod to supplement my full-size Giottos MT-8180. The stock SLIK Pro 330DX offered me a good lightweight tripod which, with two modifications, has become an excellent tripod that is light enough to carry boonie tromping and is small enough to fit in my airline luggage.

I first replaced the stock center column with the optional shorter column sold as an accessory. I do not believe that a lightweight tripod such as the 330DX should be used with an extended center column. Another option would have been to shorten the stock center column by sawing off a portion of its length. However, I opted to use the accessory column as a more professional looking modification.

Secondly, I replaced the rather heavy stock SLIK pan/tilt head with an Adorama Flashpoint F-1 Arca Compatible magnesium ball head. This head not only considerably reduces the total package weight but allows the use of a Really Right Stuff L-Bracket. The RRS L-Bracket increases stability by eliminating the need to cantilever the camera/lens over to the side of the head when using a non-tripod-ring equipped camera/lens in the portrait position. This head provides a significant advantage in stability while lowering the total weight of the modified tripod/head package.

The modifications reduce the weight of the SLIK Pro 330DX tripod/head package from its stock 3.5 pounds to only one pound, eleven ounces yet allows me to adequately support my 1.6x cameras with either my 17-55mm f/2.8 IS or 70-200mm f/4L IS lenses. The modified tripod/head has performed very well; even in some rather heavy winds while photographing Bryce Canyon, Utah.

The one drawback with this package is that it is fairly short in height.

Sturdy, well-designed tripod for use in and out-of-doors. Fits in my suitcase for travel. I swapped on a ball head. The insulated grips and extremely light weight make it a joy to carry. The leg-independent three-angle positioning offers a degree of versatility unmatched.

This tripod is great. My last one fell apart quicky but this one is very well built without being heavy! I am a 4'10" girl and a weenie to boot but I lug it everywhere! It has taken tons of abuse and is as good as new, I have had it a while and expect to have for a very long time. I didn't really want to spen this much but it will probibly save me the frustration of many cheap ones so in the end a great deal! I lent it to a taller friend who also loved it and has asked for it for Christmas.

You can't beat this tripod for the money. One misconception I had and a I think a few others do also is that you need to buy a short center column to lower the tripod to it's lowest position. I'm not sure about all of them but my center column is a long two piece that unscrews so that only the short column is in place. Given the max height of this unit I'm pretty sure they are all like mine. Check with each Seller but they should all be the same. There is one thing I would prefer but it wasn't a big enough issue to not rate this 5 stars. The leg locks would be nicer if the tension was adjustable but as long as they do not loosen over time this whole thing is a 5. I also agree with a few other reviews in that the weight rating seems to be really low. Don't take my word for it because I have no super heavy lenses but this thing is solid as a rock. Folded length is fine, I'd even take this on a hike with no problem. I bought the pan instead of ball head because I do shoot quite a few pano's. The head is also really well built and the quick release is works very well. This is an excellent tripod. If anything happens to this one I would not hesitate to buy another.
