  • Conclusion: The conventional three-way head features three independent locks for pan, tilt and swivel. The pan clamp has a small thumbscrew, whereas the other two locks have longer operating arms. Again, this is typical for a three-way head, and you need to unscrew one locking arm and screw it into the other to enable the tripod to fit into the carry case provided.

Slik Pro 500DX Complete

  • Excerpt: With a distinctly retro look, the Slik Pro 500DX Complete bypasses the 'black is the new black' fashion of most current tripods and proudly displays a set of shiny metal legs, even if the top ones are covered with black comfort padding.

  • Summary: It's well built and while being on the heavy side, it's lighter than a lot of models using similar materials. It's classed as a pro model and I don't see why some professionals wouldn't get the standard they desire from it. I think because of these points, Slik could possibly get away with pricing it slightly higher. Maybe no higher than £150, but £122 takes it into the lower classifications.
  • Pros: Clever compacting design on handles, Inverting centre column, Excellent build materials
  • Cons: No spirit level, No quick release plate lock, Shoddy quick release lever materials
