Slik AMT Pro 340DX Tripod?
Aug 1, 2007

I have a Canon EOS D60 DSLR plus an EF 100-400mm IS L telephoto. I use the tele … not only for distance shooting … but also with a Canon 500D close-up lens for “tele-macros” … so I don’t spook my “insect customers.”

I’ve been looking at the Slik AMT Pro 340DX (titanium) tripod, which has a quick-release pan/tilt head that can be interchanged with an optional, adjustable ball head. It also has 4-section quick-release legs that can be adjusted to spread out for close-to-the-ground work. To achieve this, the central column can be replaced with a shorter (8-9”?) column (supplied). It’s said to support up to 11 lbs and seems to be reasonably light, compact, and strong enough for my purposes.

Has anyone had experience with the 340DX … and what are your pro and con comments, etc please? Thanks.
