How am I supposed to rate this tripod? On the one hand it can be as solid as the proverbial jelly in a high wind, while on the other it's astonishingly compact and light, and if that's important to you it's probably as good as you could hope for at the price. I have a 'better' tripod but it's no use at all if it's not with me because it's too heavy to lug around.

All the 5* reviews probably raised my expectations too high, and Slik don't help with their various webpages either saying that it's ideal for an SLR + telephoto zoom or only really suitable for a compact camera [http://www.sliktripod.co.uk/pdf%20files/SLIK%20CATALOGUE%202012.pdf] - I think the latter is nearer the truth though the pic on the box shows it holding an SLR with a pretty chunky lens. In reality I'm sorry to say this tripod really isn't at all solid when fully extended with an SLR on top; touch the camera and it wobbles for several seconds - I would imagine a [D]SLR's mirror would set it off; I am blessed [?] with a Sony SLT and with that camera, or with your mirror locked up if you have one, indoors [ie. no wind], with a remote control, it's absolutely fine and holds the camera perfectly well - no slippage/drooping/dropping/falling over, though my camera and plastic kit zooms only weigh about 1kg. The whole thing twists and flexes rather a lot too. More positively, if you don't use the pencil-thin lower leg section and only raise the centre column half way it's really rather impressive, and if you fold out your LCD screen it won't kill your back using it at this height - I knew there had to be a reason you could do that. Contrary to accepted wisdom it seems better to partly raise the centre column rather than use the last leg section with this tripod.

And it is tiny!

The first tripod I ever bought was a Slik Gazelle, which I picked up while stationed in Japan in 1983. I used it regularly until last month, when a plastic part in the mounting head snapped. 30 years of service...not too shabby.

This is the standard for Slik has set up with its made-in-Japan craftsmanship. This tripod is slightly larger and heavier than the Gazelle and adds enough extra features to make the extra weight a good trade off.

It has a quick-release plate, and adjustable leg angle locks.

Overall, steady movement and a stable platform for all but the heaviest lenses and highest wind conditions.

The seller is super fast and the Tripod is excellent, I've boon using it for night photography and the images are super sharp despite the lightweightness of the tripod.

A must have

Very satisfied with the tripod - light as a feather, very small in folded condition and, as far as I can tell, made from good quality aluminium, not a cheap plastic. Having d40 with 200mm on it. Recommend for those who look for light tripod for basic level dslr. Note that it has ball head, maybe you won't like it.

I bought my one of these in Korea... and haven't regretted it for a second.

As a light(ish) basic tripod it has all the features you coudl ask for. The camera can be put underneath to 'copyshoot' things. The legs go out very low and the base of the central column is removalable for low level shots. The ball head is a little small for pro size DSLR perhaps. (I wouldn't leave mine on it at full height and be out of arms length away....). But as a piece of kit that easy to carry and easy to use it can't be faulted.

When I was thinking about buying this tripod I hadn't seen many reviews which is why I'm gonna write this one. Very well made and definitely looks the part, sturdy even when the legs are fully extended and can easily hold my Nikon d3100 and a zoom lens. Very versatile tripod and can be made to go very low to the ground for many different types of situations. Folds down to a very small size and isn't a bother to carry, nice ball head, which is also very sturdy also and has not loosened up on me. Nice soft padding on the legs too which makes it even easier to carry, also comes with a small shoulder bag too. Perfect for using on a journey up a hill or on a trek etc. Very well made tripod and although there are probably cheaper ones out there I am very glad I went with this choice. It will hopefully suit me for a very long time!

As an amateur, I was unwilling to pay lots for a professional tripod, but still wanted a semi-pro, sturdy and light weight tripod for a decent price.
This tripod seems to fit the bill well.

Pros: Light-Weight, easy to assemble and comes with a carry-bag.
Cons: Not as sturdy as I'd hoped with a DSLR mounted on top.

I bought this as a gift, having been told exactly what model to buy (so it wasn't a surprise)! However, I have seen it being used almost daily and the recipient has confirmed she is absolutely delighted with it. I don't know too much about the detail of what makes it good, but I see it being moved around, adjusted and fiddled with, and so far I've not heard a cross word being muttered. Brownie points for me!
