Built with the photo enthusiast in mind, the SLIK Tripod ABLE 300 DX uses recent design advances in this utility tripod.

The legs of the SLIK Tripod ABLE 300 DX set up and fold down securely, loosen and tighten the leg lock knob to extend or shorten them. 3 position adjustable angle leg locks make for easy set up on uneven ground or steps. These leg locks also allow you to lower the height of the tripod. Combined with the SLIK Able 300 DX Short Column and the tripod can be lowered to 14 inches for low angle or macro photography.

For even lower angle photography the standard gearless center column can be reversed so the head is at the bottom of the center column. This gives you the ability to photograph with the camera just a few inches off the ground.
