(From company literature) SLIK Able 300 DX 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head with Quick Release. Compact and made from solid, precision-machined aluminum this all-metal head has the strength and durability to handle a wide variety of digital and 35 mm cameras and lenses.


The 3-way pan head has a metal quick release plate that positively locks into the head. One lever operation of the quick release lock allows fast mounting and un-mounting of the camera.

  • Pan/Tilt: 3-Way
  • Quick Release: Yes
  • Bubble Levels: 2
  • Height: 8.9 cm / 3.5 in.
  • Camera Mount: 1/4"-20

SLIK Able 300 DX 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head with Quick Release review by mogodore
Review Date: 3/30/2006 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $160.00| Rating: 8 

 
Pros: A very practical, no prtetentions head for a higher level prosumer digital.
Cons: Works OK with the heavy SLR gear, but would not recommend its for general use with such gear.

A very practical, no prtetentions head for a higher level prosumer digital. I use it with the Minolta A2 and save the heavy Manfrotto for the heavy gear. The QR plate is symetrical so there's no special orientation needed and the lock is a straightforward pressure lock. The three way controls are nice and positive and the pan is plenty smooth for an inexpensive head.


Note: The $160 price included the tripos as well.
