          Comments about Slik 505QF Tripod:

          The SLIK 505QF is perfect for jobs that don't require a lot of mobility, as it is a bit heavy as other reviews say.

          I use it to record video games, tennis and skits.

          The pan head is nice. Everything is stable.

          The only con is the imprecise slideout legs.

            Comments about Slik 505QF Tripod:

            This tripod is really built well and works well. I like the way the verticle shaft locks. I would prefer flip locks instead of twist locks on the legs but that is just personal. The twist locks work well. I am however dissapoinded in the head. I think it has room for improvement to match the advertising. Maybe I am expecting too much, like really smooth panning. Maybe I will grow to like it or maybe it will wear in. I don't know at this point. I am using a really light camera (Panasonic HDC-HS900)on a head designed for more weight. Maybe that is the real issue.

                I use the Slik 505 for home movies and small projects with a Canon XHA1s.Not the best Tipod, but for less than [$] it's hard to find such a smooth and fluid panhead.It is a bit heavy but easy tu use.

                I recently purchased this for use in interviews and short pieces for events. This has a smooth pan and tilt and so far seems to hold up. Please keep in mind that this is a heavy tripod, so it will get heavy after a full days use.

                  I am using this tripod as a camcorder tripod for my church. It tracks very smoothly and is very sturdy. I have been impressed with its, er, slick movement. It does seem awfully expensive, however, so I will interested to see how it does over time compared to other tripods.

                  Really smooth head for pans & tilts and strong steady legs for heavier cameras. Only thing I would change would be the twist (round) tighteners on each leg. I prefer the clamp kind that you push down to tighten and pull up to release because it is faster to set up & break down.
