Slik AF-2100 Overview

Slik's AF-2100 has a unique patented single action pistol grip.  Simply squeeze the trigger, set your camera to the desired position and release the trigger; your camera is immediately locked right where you want it.  The AF-2100 can be used with all makes and models of tripods that have either a 1/4"-20 or a 3/8"-16 threaded center column post.

Ingenious Panning Axis Quick Release Mechanism

Where your thumb rests upon the AF-2100 there is a lever; push the lever up and the quick release plate can rotate upon the panning axis, and pull the lever down to make the plate lock into place.  In this way you're able to follow action which solely needs left/right panning adjustments without the need to constantly squeeze the pistol mechanism, which would quickly tire your hand.

Bull's Eye Style Bubble Level

At the top of the AF-2100 there is a bull's eye style single bubble level, which helps to quickly achieve a perfectly level shot with just a glance at your hand.
Base diameter of 2.0" (5.1 cm)

Can anyone comment on what UncleFrankieSays means ...

Can anyone comment on what UncleFrankieSays means in his review that says? It is too easy to forget that if you squeeze the trigger all the way with a big body and heavy glass attached, it gets away from you and drops down hard on its stops. Quite scary!
Asked by: B-rAd
The Slik AF-2100 Pistol Grip Head has a maximum load capacity of 10 lb. The more you grip the trigger on the pistol grip, the less tension you will have on the ball head for easier/quicker repositioning of the camera/lens combination. As with most all tripod head types, when the head is fully loosened, the camera can be moved freely. As such, it is recommended to still hold both the camera and the grip head when repositioning the pistol grip head's position. Also, if you are using a large lens, it is most advantageous to connect the camera/lens combination to the tripod head via a tripod collar so the camera/lens combination is balanced near the setup's center of balance rather than being front-heavy if the camera body is connected to the tripod. By both centering the camera/lens' center of balance while also ensuring you are holding the camera and tripod head when repositioning the camera, as well as ensuring the maximum load capacity of your camera/lens is below the 10 lbs maximum, there should be no issues with using the above tripod with your camera/lens combination.

question

Which tripods will this pistol grip fit to? For eg, can it be attached to the Manfrotto 190CXPRO4 Tripod? Or something equivalent? I have 2 of these heads already, and need a 3rd as they are very useful, but I need a few good tripods to attach them to. What do you suggest?
Asked by: Rory
My pistol grip is attached to a Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod. I think that model tripod was recently discontinued, but is hopefully being replaced with something similar. I have two of those tripods and each has the pistol grip attached. It's a great combination!

question

Is the quick release ArcaSwiss compatible?
Asked by: John
Any camera with the ability to mount onto a tripod would be compatible however; I found this pistol grip to be very unbalanced and not at all easy to use. The pistol itself should be stabilized directly under the camera and not offset to the front where it is unstable. I've used pistol grips before and this one is just not balanced properly for a large SLR.
