Slik Pro 500HD Tripod with SH-736HD 3-Way Head
The SLIK Pro 500 HD was created for DSLR’s that have HD video recording capability. The SH-736HD is a smooth-moving fluid effect 3-way pan head with quick release for easy mounting and removal of a DSLR, video camera or camera. This all-metal head is specifically designed for photo and video use. The SH-736HD has pan and tilt drag controls that are separate from the pan/tilt handle locks. This allows the photographer to fine-tune the tightness of the movement based on the weight of the camera and lens. The head can hold up to 11.0 lbs of equipment.
The PRO 500s are capable of handling the weight of a professional full-frame DSLRs or mirrorless cameras with heavy lenses. It can handle up to 11.0lbs of equipment yet it keeps itself light in case the tripod needs to be moved around. It offers professional photographers and advanced amateurs the strength and stability they need. SLIK’s exclusive AMT super titanium alloy legs make the PRO 500 tripods rock steady yet lighter than it looks.
“What’s so great about AMT alloy?” You may be thinking. AMT has a 40% greater strength to weight ratio than standard aluminum. The legs are lighter weight yet stronger than the standard metal used in most of today’s tripods. This lightweight comes with a price comparable to other standard aluminum tripods.
The SLIK Pro 500 DX also makes setting up easy with secure, speed-release leg locks (pictured left). A gearless center column and 3-position, adjustable angle leg locks allow easy set-up on uneven ground or steps. The SLIK Pro 500DX center column is two threaded pieces that convert the top piece to a short column. Combined with the adjustable leg angle locks the tripod lowers to 13.8 inches for low angle or macro photography.
