Excerpt: light weight, short (fit into my bag), easy/quick to set up, and relatively stable for my D750+24/120 f/4. That is all I need for traveling and hiking. Very good construction quality and great value as well. A little short without raising the central column, wish it had a 3/8" mount.
Excerpt: I was flying to CA from TX and needed a light tripod. The Pro 340DX Tripod Legs (Silver) by Slik was perfect for that. It isn't very sturdy in a stiff wind, but other than that, it worked fine and was small enough I could fit it in my carry-on. You give up some sturdiness for weight...
I Am using This Tripod Instead of My "Better" Tripod

Excerpt: It turns out that this, compact and lightweight tripod is now my "better" one because I will be using it much more than my other model that is heavier, taller, more stable and has a few more head adjustments.
Pros: Fits In A Medium Sized Kn, Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: I am an amateur photographer. I read a lot of reviews on a lot of sites and looked at quite a few tripods before selecting the Slik 340 DX. Many of the reviews said that you cannot find a decent tripod for under $ and most are junk.
Pros: Folds Small, Good Quality, Good Stability, Reasonable price
Excerpt: My old slik aluminum tripod got stolen out of my truck on a recent hunt. I bought this to replace it. Man was I impressed when I opened the box. First off, it was shipped so quick for no charge which was great. It is super solid; very well built - durable.
Excerpt: I've had this tripod for several months and traveled around a lot with it. It was my steady companion on my Iceland trip, where we had to deal with lots of changing weather conditions and terrain. It held up really well and I like the ease of use and lightness of the tripod.
