    Slik CF522 reviews

    Lite CF-522 Tripod with LED Center Column Flashlight is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from lives up to its claims This tripod, despite its light weight nature, is a solid performer as far as a travel tripod goes. It is very compact when it is retracted and comes with a useful case that can be slung over the shoulder, though it would have been nicer if the strap was long enough to go across the chest. The clamp on the ball head is a Arca-Swiss design and securely locked onto my 80-400 zoom with its RRS foot replacement. There was no apparent wobble but a remote trigger is a must for that large of a lens. My intent for the tripod is use it while backpacking and would not normally have such a heavy lens on it but it is nice to know that it could be used adequately for such if needed.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from lightweight and compact The instructions for the light were not clear and in the process of trying to figure it out the threads stripped on one of the connectors, so the light is not usable. I had heard that the tripod could support an average DSLR camera and long lens, but I found the ball a little slippy when trying to lock it in place. Otherwise, I like the light weight and compactness of the folded tripod and carrying case; this will be strictly a travel tripod for me.
