Here's one for those of you with serious camera equipment, the rrp is £285..... I already own the 700DX and can vouch for it being an awesome tripod - absolutely rock solid (and available at the same price as this - its bigger brother). It's a high quality pro tripod (comparable in quality to Manfrotto or Giotto) and comes complete with a heavy duty 3 way pan and tilt head with quick release mechanism, capable of holding upto 6.8kg of kit......

The PRO 780 DX is capable of supporting the weight of professional digital cameras and heavy telephoto lenses up to a 400 mm f/2.8. This complete tripod offers 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 and more portable than many professional offerings from other manufacturers.

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 780 DX black tripod makes setting up easy with secure, speed-release leg locks, gearless center column and 3-position, adjustable angle leg locks allow easy set-up on uneven ground or steps. The PRO 780 DX 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 15 inches for very low angle or macro photography in the field.


Maximum Operating Height: 76.80 in. (1,950mm)
Minimum Operating Height: 16.25 in. (413mm)
Center Column Extension: 14.0 (380mm)
Folded Length: 32.4 in. (823mm)
Weight: 6.95 lbs. (3,152g)
Number of Leg Sections: 3
Leg Lock Type: Speed Release Lock
Maximum Load: 15.00 lbs. / 6,800 grams

excellent - good find

Good price - hot from me.

Great price, great tripod, heavy though, not for trekking up and down hills, that's for sure, but well worth the money.
Paid around this price for the 700dx in march this year. :thumbsup:

Also camera can be reverse mounted.


Does the 780DX have incorporated spirit levels?
I know the 700DX does have levels and a 4-way head - is the 700DX better?
This looks like a good buy but I also like the GIOTTOS MTL9361B with MH5011 head as
this is lighter, more versatile and on paper supports roughly the same weight.

I would think the SLIK would be far more solid though.

Could only find one review on this which is not good although the reviewer does seem a little dramatic:


I can't find any closup pics of the head and would appreciate any more specs.

Voted hot - thanks!

SLIK tripods are distributed in the UK by a company called Intro 2020, tel 01628 674411.

They are very helpful with tech specs etc. One thing they did mention was that this tripod has
a 1 year warranty... the Giottos on the other hand have 5 years warranty.
