One of the features that have made the Slik Master Classic D3 tripod such an enduring legend with photographers and birdwatchers world-wide is its head.

The 2-way pan head has traditional all-metal construction with simple sturdy one lever operation. When released, the head can move in two directions, it can tilt up and down and pan left or right. These directions of movement make the head an ideal choice for long telephoto lenses, like 300mm f/2.8, 400mm f/5.6 or 500mm f/4.5. Following a subject, such as a bird in flight, is easy with this head. The tension of movement can be adjusted by turning the release lever slightly to match the weight of the camera and lens being used.

The camera mount plate, while not removable, has a small release lever on one side that allows the mount plate to rotate 360 degrees; and be locked down at any point.

The camera mount post is spring-loaded and can be adjusted by turning the tensioner to match the tread depth of the lens or camera being used. This allows for more secure mounting of heavy equipment on the head.

Secure twist lock legs makes this tripod an absolute joy to use.

I actually have the original slik D3 but notice this classic is exactly the same.
I've had mine 24 years and it's still going strong, admittedly it only sits at my window with a mounted fieldscope and doesn't go much further.
Solidly built, everything is aluminium except for the head and bracket for leg attachment which are solid cast metal.

Can be hard to pan up/down left/right smoothly as it's adjustment is made via tightening the arm, no damper.

Mine is Japanese built and well engineered, assuming it's still made in Japan.

4 stars because no damper.
