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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
I'm 5'10" so it's a bit short, but if I use the center stock extended about half way, it's totally comfortable. The center stock has two pieces that screw together so you can remove one and get down low. I have added a small hook to the bottom stock's cap (it screws in, which is really a nice distinction from just popping in) and I use it to hang my bag for greater stability.
This tripod fits in my carry-on bag and is easy to carry around. I doubt it would hold up to rigorous field use, but for someone like me - a photo enthusiast who likes to go out and play on a Saturday afternoon - it's great. I'm planning on taking it to Italy this summer to get some good architecture and landscape shots. I think it will be a really good travel companion.
