        Comments about Nikon Slik Tripod:

        ordered this tripod a few nights ago and it arrived very fast. overall very appealing tripod. it is a genuine Nikon product. so don't be fooled. i have a Nikon D3000 amateur camera, they call it. hooked right up. the first thing i noticed was how light the tripod was. it's EXTREMELY light. which is good for long hikes or adventures you may go on with them. very sturdy. easy to adjust and get to know. you're able to completely adjust the panning stiffness, as well as the vertical adjusting speed. at the fully extended height i felt a little disappointed cause it was a decent amount shorter than me. then i saw a handle, and began to turn it and it actually raises the mount the camera is on. ALSO, the mount to the camera detaches separately (i kept my camera attached to the mount and dismounted it off the tripod to avoid stripping or possibly breaking the thread/plastic off). a very convenient feature. it's about 90% plastic (aside from the thin aluminum legs) so it could break fairly easy, IF you beat on it. the uses i will use it for (car photography & scenery) should never come to the point of breaking the plastic on it. but overall, a great Amateur tripod, it will definitely suite my needs, it has everything and more than i was searching for. i gave it a 4 star because of the plastic. there could be a little more metal in the construction, but DEFINITELY a bang for your buck!

              Only used it once so far. It easily supported my camera with a long distance lens (840mm).

                Comments about Nikon Slik Tripod:

                I bought this tripod for my 25-75 power spotting scope. It is extremely unsteady. The slightest breeze makes the image quiver even at the 25 power setting. Even the lightest touch sets it in motion, say if your eyebrow touches the eye piece. I have not tried this for a very light camera with no zoom so maybe it would work for that. But that is not my interest.

                    Customer Q & A

                    1 Question About This Product
                    Q: "Will this tripod work with a Barska 30x90x90 spotting scope?  What is the max weight limit for this scope?"
                    A: That tripod would not work with the spotting scope you have. The maximum weight on a compact tripod is 2.25 lbs and the spotting scope you have is 3lbs. Any full-size tripod would have the correct mount for your scope and would be able to handle heavier weights.
