SLIK PRO 340 BH Tripod

SLIK's exclusive A.M.T. super Aluminum-Magnesium-Titanium alloy legs make the PRO 340 BH tripod in black very steady. The A.M.T. alloy has a 40% greater strength to weight ratio than standard aluminum. This makes the legs lighter and stronger than the standard metal used in most tripods.

This compact tripod has 4 legs sections to collapse down to just over 20 inches, making the PRO 340 BH great for traveling and backpacking.

The PRO 340 BH makes setting up easy with secure, speed-release leg locks. Padded leg wraps make the tripod more comfortable to carry. 3-position, multi-angle leg locks allow easy set-up on uneven ground or steps.

The PRO 340 BH has a gearless center column that unscrews into two pieces converting the top piece into a short column. This feature combined with the adjustable leg angle locks allows the tripod to be lowered to 10 inches for very low angle or macro photography in the field.

The PRO 340 BH has stable all-metal SBH-200DQ ball head with easy-to-use quick release.


SLIK SBH-200DQ Dual-Level Ball Head

The new SBH-200DQ compact ball head has durable all-metal construction. Dual-axis bubble levels help keep the camera level even when a tripod is set up on uneven ground or steps. It's one-lever operation makes for simple and ease camera movements.

The SBH-200DQ has an industry standard 3/8 tripod mount and comes with a universal _-20 reducer installed. The 2 options make it compatible with tripods from SLIK and most other manufacturers.

An easy to use all-metal quick release system makes mounting the camera fast and simple. The SBH-200DQ quick release is shared with the following SLIK tripod heads:

AF-1100E trigger release ball head
SBH-280E ball head
SH-707E multi-action “EZ” pan head
SH-704E 3-way pan head.

It is now possible to have several different styles of SLIK heads for different shooting situations that all share the same quick release plate.
