    Slik CF422 reviews

    Lite CF-422 Tripod with LED Center Column Flashlight is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Travel Tripod I bought this tripod for hiking and travel. It is surprisingly sturdy and lightweight. The small ball head handled a Nikon D750 with 300mm f4 lens and TC1.7 converter well locking down tightly. I was uncomfortable with the small Arca Swiss style plate so I replaced it with a larger one. The flashlight is so difficult to turn on and off that I found it useless. The legs adjust easily with twist style controls, and the center column can be reversed for easy ground level shooting, a feature I have already used several times. Overall a great carbon fiber tripod and ball head for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light weight tripod I finally had occasion to use this tripod on a trip to Utah. I needed to carry a tripod over a rather rough mile trail in darkness to take a sunrise image of the Moab Arch. This tripod is much lighter to carry than my usual tripod. My camera was a Canon 6D with a wide angle lens, and the tripod supported this camera easily. However, I do not think this tripod would be suitable for a larger camera and a long telephoto lens used for bird photography.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight, easy to use. My main tripod is a CF Gitzo. This isn't as stable, but in decent light (i.e. faster shutter speeds) and not extending the center column, it's a joy for my aging body to transport and stable enough for normal shooting.
