    Small but holds well.

    By Derek Burton

    Comments about Slik SH-704E 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head with Quick Release:

    I bought this to replace the pistol grip spring loaded head on my Sunpak 423px
    Tripod. I was looking for something to hold the weight of my D700 I just purchased. It holds the D700 with the 85mm 1.4G without creep, at steep angles.
    All metal construction is great too. Great buy for the price.

    Slik SH-704E Tripod Head

        Comments about Slik SH-704E 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head with Quick Release:

        I needed a head for an extremely light carbon fiber tripod that would not make the setup top-heavy and unstable with a camera and lens attached. While this head is usable with standard to wide angle lenses, it is not suited to large lenses such as telephotos. It has only two levers, with one pan-and-tilt action combined into a single function. This is not the easiest feature to work with, but it does keep the head very light and small, which was the purpose of buying it in the first place, so that is a trade-off. Although advertised as all metal, the lever that holds the plate is actually plastic, but that is not a deal breaker because the head does the intended job just as well as I had hoped. While this head is probably not something I would use on a constant basis, it works well for occasional use when something really small and light is called for.

          Comments about Slik SH-704E 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head with Quick Release:

          Bought this head to go with my Sirui T-1005X ALUMINUM TRIPOD. It's a really great head. Easy to use and I love the quick release. I also managed to fold my tripod back into its case with the head still attached. I did have to detach the handles and maneuver the head a bit. I only give the head 4 stars because the handles are a bit annoying and make the head bulkier than it needs to be. At the same time they help the tripod be precise both on its horizontal and vertical access.

            Comments about Slik SH-704E 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head with Quick Release:

            I use this product with my 500DX Pro Tripod Legs. Mainly use it for slow shutter speed effects photography, taking videos and self portraits. The head is easy to use and ergonomic. The quick release is superb, no glitches, it just works. When I pan while capturing video, I wasn't able to get a smooth pan, but I think that just requires more practice on my part.

            Great product!

              Comments about Slik SH-704E 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head with Quick Release:

              This is a great tripod head for backpacking and holds my spotting scope and binoculars well. Way better than a ball head. I use it with the slik sprint mini tripod.
              I dont like the extra lever/knob for rotating between landscape and portrait mode because I dont use it with a camera. For this I just removed the knob and put in a screw to permanantly lock it in place. Seems to work well.
              I highly recommend this head.

                This little head is great! I had the Slik ball head and I did not like the durability and usage of that. I bought this instead and I'm really liking it. The quick release plate is very solid and tight. The handles are a nice rubber but not that cheap kind that going to start falling apart. I put this head on my Slik Sprint mini ll and it supports my Nikon D7000 as well as a big zoom lens no problem. Highly Recommend.

                    I have two of these on small tripods used with digital cameras weighing between 1 and 2 lbs. They are smooth, reliable and well built. The quick release mechanism is well designed. In use it feels like a helpful friend and not an obstacle. That can't be said for all tripod heads. This is one of the most pleasing heads I've ever used in over 30 years of camera work.

                      I bought this to replace an old worn out head.

                      I really like the compactness about this model. The quick-release doesn't interfere with the battery compartment so it can remain on camera most of the time, yet it is ample enough to support my camera with a mid to long zoom.

                      From what I can tell after only limited use, it appears to be well made, and I have no complaints.

                      Comments about Slik SH-704E 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head with Quick Release:

                      I mated the SH-704E 3-WAY PANHEAD by Slik to my Sprint Pro Tripod also by Slik. I'm glad I did! I took over 1000 photos while hiking on uneven terrain in Sedona, AZ. The quick release plate is very handy in quickly de-/attaching the camera to the tripod panhead while on the go. The spirit bubble level on this pan-head was a godsend in making sure my horizon was level in all of my photos. Also, this panhead was very useful when taking photos to be later stitched in software as panoramas - again the spirit bubble level made a difference here as well as the notches for measuring horizontal and vertical rotation. No buyer's remorse whatsoever about this purchase - fantastic value for the price!
