Slik F630 Tripod w/ 3-Way Panhead

You Pay: $34.95
Product Highlights
  • Supports 3.3 lbs (1.5kg)
  • 3-Section Legs
  • Quick Release
  • Includes Case

The Slik F630 Tripod is a complete tripod with panhead, designed to do double-duty for both compact point and shoot cameras as well as video cameras.  Its maximum upper leg diameter is 22mm, and it is rated for use with equipment weighing up to 3.3 pounds (1.5kg).

Slik focuses on the intelligence in their designs, and not just the raw support.  The flip-lock levers here are a cut above the usual grade, with decidedly great action for a tripod most would classify as inexpensive.  The F630 also has a geared center column with adjustable tension, allowing you to make fine adjustments to camera position in macro shooting without having to recompose the entire image (as you likely would with a 'rapid' column).

Keep the light stuff on the F630, and you'll be happy with its performance as a light class travel tripod.

3-Way panhead with quick release plate and anti-twist video register pin (unscrewing the panning knob controls both pan and tilt movement)
Geared, adjustable-tension center column's handy for macro work
Large, ergonomic flip-lock levers with secure and assured action
Angled rubber leg tips make great contact with hard surfaces and won't be refused for aircraft carry-on

      Good Lightweight Tripod

      This tripod is light enough to carry on trails, but solid enough to hold medium-length lenses. The only fault is the absence of a handle on the shaft.

      does not hold up the weight it claims to hold. the pan head is weak, extremely weak. I am giving mine away and looking into a better one. I am disappointed with Slik as a whole, i've had other experiences with slik tripods and they've been great, this one...not so much. I understand its cheap but it doesnt do what it claims. So it is terrible.

      Comments about Slik F630 Tripod w/ 3-Way Panhead:

      I've bought this tripod in May 2013 and I've used it a few times since then. This is a reliable tripod at a fair cost. It was always stable and it is light enough to be worth carrying in family trips. I've seen more expensive ones that would not satisfy me the same way.

        Early days, but so-far happy with purchase.
        Lightweight and easy to carry, economic, and sturdy enough to do the job.
        Would recommend.

          This product is perfect for everyday use. Ideal for 'on- the- go' shooting. Very Sturdy, and its not 'pricey' at all, neither is it of cheap quality.

              Comments about Slik F630 Tripod w/ 3-Way Panhead:

              I needed a lightweight tripod to take around with me for use with my new Nikon 7000.
              I have others but they are studio tripods and heavy to carry.
              I chose this one because it is made by Slik, a first class name. It fits my needs perfectly and is very well made. The price is right also despite its light weight it is sturdy and stable.
              I can recommend it.

                Comments about Slik F630 Tripod w/ 3-Way Panhead:

                I was looking for a tripod to replace another I purchased a couple of years ago that was cheaply-made. While the F360 is far from pro or top of the line, it is solid enough for occasional use by the amateur / enthusiast for a great price. Much better than other similar-priced tripods I looked at. I am very satisfied with this product.
