Slik 616-725 overview

  • 1Description

This SLIK Master Classic Tripod Kit supports up to 13.2 lb, measures 25.6" when folded and includes a Slik Master Classic 2-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head. Together, the tripod and head can be positioned for a minimum height of 24.8" to a maximum height of 52.4", or 64.0" with the tripod's column fully raised. The column utilizes a geared movement for precise height adjustments, and each of the tripod's 3-section legs feature twist locks for rapid deployment as well as a rubber foot to help further enhance stability on a wide variety of surfaces.

Cameras, lenses, or sport optics that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the pan-and-tilt head. The head can be rotated 360°, and tilted 90° backwards or forwards. These two movements function simultaneously, and both the rotation and tilt can be set in place using the pan bar's integrated twist lock.

A friction lock for the mount allows the mount and the head to rotate 360° independently of each other. To change from a landscape to portrait orientation, the mount's friction lock can be loosened while the attached camera, lens, or sport optic is physically held in place so that it continues to face the subject. The head itself can then be rotated 90° toward the left, and tilted 90° forward before closing the mount's friction lock as well as the pan bar's twist lock.

    Slik 616-725 reviews

    Master Classic Tripod with Master Classic 2-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this tripod I have the old version of this tripod, but it's still essentially the same. For the other reviewer saying that the handle gets in the way.. turn the head around so it points foward. It's much easier to pan and follow faster moving objects that way. Just loosen the handle and aim it. I have used this tripod to support a fairly heavy thing I built to take pictures of stars and it supported it easily, and that was with a 15 lb weight hooked to the bottom. It didn't budge one bit. I've used this with my 5 lb camera lens that has is a 500mm and it works great. I would not hesitate to buy this again. it is a rock solid tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it for over 10 years. I bought this back when I had a small SLR and have since upgraded to a full field Canon SLR and I Series lenses and this unit is still rock solid. I also love the one control to move the camera and the extended arm allows for very fine adjustments. Also great with my movie camera for all the same reasons. Yes, you must use the lens support and not the camera with heavy loads. I also like firmly, supporting the camera to the mount vs using the quick disconnects. May seem old fashioned but REALLY strong and nothing to slip!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Well built tripod. It's cast iron or steel in places where it matters and thick aluminium elsewhere. This makes it very sturdy, reliable and rugged. I've compared it to some other tripods in it's price range and found that it's able to eat a bit more of those pesky microvibrations you come across when using tele or macro. Also you can pretty much throw this thing around without being too worried about it breaking.It's not a brilliant tripod for all macro work though, as the minimum height is quite high. You can actually reverse the center pole, but the mechanism makes it tricky. Would be better to attach a ball head on the other end of the center pole but i haven't tried it yet.All in all a great tripod for most uses and one that can last from father to son.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not really very good The center column is clunky. Need two hands to loosen the brake and the other to raise and lower. The handle for the head sticks out so far it interferes with you looking into the camer view finder. Guess the pros were right when they said,don't spend less than $300+ for a tripod.
