I just bought a SLIK PRO 400DX tripod from CP few days ago. It comes with pan & tilt head. Only use it once. Today, when i want to mount my camera on it again, i found my quick release lever is not there anymore. Check it carefully, found the lever broken. I always handle it carefully and never drop it. I wonder why the quality of the lever is so weak? It makes me worry about the tripod legs lock clip which is made in plastic too.
SLIK product quality so low one meh?? or just i m not lucky to have a poor quality one.
One more qurstion.. based on u guys experiences, will CP replace another head for me ? or even better i would like to exchange to other brand. It makes me lost confidence on SLIK ler..
Another Question, which brand of tripod head should i get? Beside than ball head set up faster & Pan & tilt more precise, what is the pros & cons for both ball head & pan & tilt ?
