This is the third Slik Pistol Grip Head I have purchased in a twenty year span. Two were gifts to my children and one( the first one) was for me. I am a great fan of this item and have only 1 change I woukd like to see. It is a tension adjustment for the ball head.
As pistol grips go, this one is not bad. It has a capacity of 10lbs. and does in fact feel pretty strong. It will give a millimeter or two when you lock it, but then holds pretty tight. The quick release plate could be better.
Pretty stabile, fairly light, fairly strong
Adds height, QR plate a bit of a pain
Hold Pentax K-1 and Pentax 150-450 total weight 7.5 pounds in any position with out drift.
After 20 years of use my Slik tripod Pistol Grip started to show signs of wear. It hadn't broken and was still working just fine, however the grip surface between the camera plate and the grip head had become brittle and was not holding the camera securing, particularly when the camera was in...
I had been using a rather old and stiff pistol grip head on and off for some time, but it was never satisfactory (too cheap and poorly designed). I decided to take the plunge and buy a serious alternative, the Slik AF 2100. Day and night.
This Slik does exactly what it promises. Easy to use!
I use it for video camera. Its simpe to use and no shokking video's during a pan or a tilt in al directions. I whas mentioned by a friend but I was not happy to buy it in the USA. because of transportfee and taxes.
I use this as a quick use tripod head for flash portraits and find it very stable and successful for quickly reframing shots on the fly. It balances well, the trigger method is smooth and intuitive and the angle of the handle relative to the camera/lens direction adjusts well for ease of use.
My husband is elated with this new grip head. It will allow him a lot more flexibility while photographing wildlife on the move. Wonderful product!
I really like the flexibility and speed enabled by pistol grip tripod heads. I used to use a Manfrotto 222 Joystick Head, but it eventually lost all of its tension and just flopped around. (I tend to use heavier cameras, e.g., a Hasselblad and now the Nikon D800).
