The Slik Master Classic Head is a 2-way pan head that 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.
