SLIK 3873 Tripod Info Needed
« on: September 12, 2020, 01:10:40 PM »
This was my father in laws. Is it a good one? I can not find any info on it. Unfortunately he can no long remember how to use his camera. Very Sad.

We got it for him 20 years ago, he used to use it a lot when he was into Photography...Doug

A few came up when googling slik 3873.

This one listed for sale at £30 UK Sterling. That seems to be their ballpark figure.

Checking online - the 3873 is actually just the pan/tilt head unit part.

Regardless, it appears to be a decent tripod setup.

I could actually use one of these, have come across them (and similar) at boot sales but never bought one. I’ll be keeping a lookout from now on.

This info, from google.com, probably more appropriate than the EU search results from my side of the pond. With nice photos too.
