Slik SH-707E overview

  • 1Description

The Slik SH-707E is a 2-way pan head that has traditional all-metal construction with simple sturdy one lever operation. When released, the head can move in two directions: it can tilt up and down and pan left or right. Its single rubberized handle controls all movement.

These directions of movement make the head an ideal choice for long telephoto lenses, like 300mm f/2.8, 400mm f/5.6 or 500mm f/4.5, or spotting scopes. Following a subject, such as a bird in flight, is easy with this head. The tension of movement can be adjusted by turning the release lever slightly to match the weight of the camera and lens being used.

    Slik SH-707E reviews

    SH-707E 2-Way Pan/Tilt Head is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement for Slik Sprint Video I bought this item to replace the head on a Slik Sprint Video tripod. I've had the tripod for a few years. It is a very portable and simply designed tripod, so when my son cracked the plastic head, I wanted to keep the tripod if I could find an appropriately priced replacement head. This one is metal and seems solid. It's motion is more fluid than the tripod's original and the levels may come in handy some time. I've used it for a school concert and home Christmas videos and photos and like it so far. I use it with a Canon HF200 camcorder and a Pentax K-7 DSLR. I have no reason to deduct from 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT 2 WAY PAN/TILT HEAD, PRECISE Very robust, smooth operation. Works well with my 70-200 ond DSLR, but would handle an even longer zoom or telephoto lens. Design is clean and well thought out by Slik.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good lightweight tilt head This is a well made head and if all you need is the tilt and pan capabilities it provides them in a comparatively compact manner with only one lever sticking out from the head. You will not be able to use the tripod legs mount screws to secure the head as the base is only 1-1/8 inch in diameter. I used a Bellevue spring washer to put tension on the head so it would not unscrew itself when panning. A minor annoyance was that Slik chose to insert the 1/4 base adapter rather than package it separately as is usually done. I needed a 0.4 inch wide flathead screwdriver to remove the adapter so I could mount the head on the tripod and it was the largest screwdriver in my tool chest.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well enough though base is too small It works well with a 2.6 lb. spotting scope but do not know how well it would work with a heavier load. Per B&H website description this head has a 4 kg or 8.8 lb. load capacity but the Slik website states load capacity is 5 kg, and the operating instructions that came with the head states a load capacity of on 2 kgs or 4 lbs. 6 ounces to go figure. Base is barely over an inch in diameter so I cannot use the tripod set screws to keep it from rotating off. It is compact in size and the single tilt lever is all I need for a spotting scope so overall it was a good choice for this use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from small and powerful This fits on my small tripod and on my has a level and just feels really sturdy,which is big because i don't want things weable-wobbling around because next thing you know things fall down...not a issue here.And when i am done i remove the handle and it tucks in my bag in a small corner.I wish they made one with the 3/8 thread for my big tripod i would get one of those too :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Confusing Load Rating Specification I purchased this tripod head to replace a broken head on an older tripod. The head appears to be well made and stable. The panning handle is a little on the short side, but the instructions show a longer handle is available should it be required. However, there is confusion as to the load rating. The B&H website lists the load capacity at 8.8 pounds (3.99 Kg). However, the included instruction sheet lists the load capacity as 4.375 pounds (2 Kg)- about half of what the website adverties it as! Which is it? So far, I have only used it with my lighter lenses, and haven't tried it with a long telephoto yet. The 8.8 pound rating on the web site was more than ample for my needs. However, the 4.375 pound rating listed on the instruction sheet would make the load capacity marginal. Overall, it's a good, well made, low-priced head. Just not sure how well it will work with a Canon 70-200mm f2.8L on the camera!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misleading Description, Handle is Tilt Only, Non-sensical The description is misleading. Zero Stars. I can't understand the use of this head. The handle is TILT ONLY. It does pan by turning the camera itself; there's no handle. It's a nice piece of hardware but I returned it as useless for my function. Further, I'm used to a flat 360 degree bubble level. This has two linear bubbles, x and y but tripods don't work that way. My original SLIK head was sensible but this thing is nonsensical to me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for the money I recently bought for $2 old Slik tripod, which lacked the locking plate for the head. Turned out the plate is no longer available, so I got SH-707E instead - and it happened to be a perfect replacement. The locking plate is large but thin, so it doesn't get in a way. The locking mechanism is well designed and works great. The pan function is smooth as silk, and dual leveling capsules allow for easy precise setup. All in all great product and worth every penny.
