Slik 504QF II overview

  • 1Description

A finely manufactured tripod for the price. The 504QFII has the fluidity necessary in its pan/tilt head to be able to follow a bird in flight with a spotting scope at full magnification, and the height and support necessary to do so while at a height comfortable for taller people.

    Slik 504QF II reviews

    504QF-II Tripod System is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small price, BIG value! I am a U.S. Army public affairs officer deployed to Iraq and needed a lightweight tripod small enough to throw into an assault pack, but sturdy enough to hold both my Nikon D5000 and Sony PD170 video camera steady in the rocks and sand. This product fits the bill! In addition to being tough and stable, the Slik 504QF-II even has a few features that I didn't expect. First, if you flip a lever on each of the legs, the legs sprawl out the opposite way, providing a nearly flat profile that is stable enough to lay out in the back of a flat bed truck for shooting on the go. The second feature that comes in handy is the ability to pop the top off and turn it over, allowing you to shoot upside-down. This works well for shooting nice, steady close-ups of objects on the ground...like, say, an IED or a camel spider. I would definitely recommend this tripod to anyone with a light, high-end video camera who wants durability, but is living on a soldier's salary.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Versatile and Inexpensive Tripod I am a novice photographer. After talking to many of your sales persons I chose the Pentax K-7. I did not know at the time the value of having a sturdy tripod. So two weeks later I was back at your store looking for the right product at the right price. I approached one of your people in the tripod department with this question: Can you recommend a tripod which will give me a steady image for stills, both close up and distance, and also allow me to get smooth quality movie images. Within seconds he suggested the 504QF by Slik and a second similar piece of equipment. He demonstrated both the advantages and disadvantages of each, so I could make the best decision. ... I feel like a pro!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was impressed I used this tripod for a recent wedding shoot, second camera. I was impressed on how the legs can be adjusted to 90 degrees (I did not know it had this feature). I liked the weight. Head was fluid. I purchased this type because it did not have the lower brace meaning I can stand it behind chairs with any leg straddling the chair in front of me. The leg adjusters are a bit time consuming but I know the legs are secured in place. Now I only had this for a few weeks so right now the head is fluid and does not stick. Lets see what happens in a few months.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fluid, sturdy, light, excellent. For it's price range, it is a nice step up from something you would purchase at a major photography retailer, being that it is on the more pro-sumer end of things. It's light weight allows for versatility when shooting outside and moving around often, but it has enough weight, to be set up in a more fixed setting and get the job done well. Nice fluid pan and tilt head, allow for nice steady camera movements. Head variance from landscape to portrait is nice for DSLR use when switching from stills to video.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the money: works for me. It fits my needs doing high definition video with relatively lightweight (less than 3 lbs) equipment. It delivers smooth pans and holds position under normal circumstances. The spring head mechanism makes it difficult to use at extreme angles (mount center upside down helps or get creative with cable ties). If you're doing a lot of this sort of thing, spend more for a legit fluid head. Extra quick mounts permit fast changes for stills (I do some technical/ training video).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Do not love it.. very heavy It worked OK but very heavy but was study. To extend the legs one would have to turn many of the screw type of tighten-ers. One can't tell if he has used enough force. So it's a unsure struggle to secure the legs in or out...These knobs are just waiting to fail. Always a poor design. I know from much personal experience. It was solid and did the job but I had to return it. I did not fall in love with it at all. Looks kind of old school in design. This stand I am guessing would be ready for the grave yard a year or less. The leg tighten screws/knobs being the reason. Tom

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for money! Best buy ! This tripod is small, fits in the suitcase, durable, light and handles heavy load. I can use this with prosumer HDV cameras such as Canon XH A1. You can carry this all day long without feeling tired of it. This is a great tripod for prosumer HDV camcorder users as well as small camcorder users.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy but Smooth for Video Shoots I recommend wholeheartedly this tripod. It's sturdy, very strong joints yet light and flexible. The head feels like a fluid head, makes smooth pans. The only think is it's height. You can't spread its legs much if you want your head to be higher than 6 feet, and at that height it starts to feel wobbly a little. I like to travel light and I feel good that this tripod will perform well.
