    DV Travel Pro Tripod System with Fluid Head is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ignore my previous review I had previously written that the tripod head had no vertical lock. I haven't used the tripod since my initial use but I actually contacted Slik and they said it should not behave the way I was describing. Today I peeled off the sticker on the vertical knob, removed the screw that holds it on, unscrewed the knob and screwed it back on. For whatever reason, it works totally fine now. I do like this tripod. It is light and small and good for travel. glad I have it working correctly now.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best tripod for a traveler/adventurer filmmaker This is the best tripod I have worked with if you are a traveler/adventurer filmmaker. Its really really light, really stable, super easy to balance due to the ball head, great smooth panning and tilting. Works as good as any Manfrotto... although is a little bit more fragile, when you split the legs to get it on a ground level position, it can not carry a lot of weight... thats why many people have had problems with the legs breaking.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stable tripod, no vertical lock I was looking for a lightweight tripod that I could travel with for video interviews. The SLIK tripod seemed to fit the bill. It seems fine and holds my AF100 okay. I did notice on the first shoot that the vertical tilt adjustment knob cannot be tightened to actually lock the fluid head. So, unless your camera is perfectly balanced on there, it will not stay in position for a lockdown shot.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good While it Lasted If you're looking for a flyweight tripod for travel that comes with a leveling bowl that actually works, this is the best choice one out there. It's not the sturdiest and it's not the smoothest but it gets the job done. The big problem is the cheap aluminum legs. They are poorly built and will fall off with heavy use. Not recommended for daily use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed This tri-pod worked perfectly. I had previously bought a lower end unit at Best Buy thinking it would work. It didn't. I'm using this rig with my spotting scope with camera attached. Very nice unit!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tripode Excellent tripod for the price. During mountaineering I even sometimes throw my heavy, 4 kg Sony on it and it is more stable than my Bogen pro tripod.
