Great tripod

e.zavvos, Adorama
20 July 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a very lightweight tripod and it is very good quality (metal) with nice cushion grips. It is much better than similarly priced tripods. It has a ball head which is kind of mediocre but works fine, but I can't expect more at this price. I think this is a very good value for money tripod which can accompany you without being a burden at hiking/sightseeing and similar activities (maybe when you're on a bike too, I haven't tried though).
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Quality, Good Stability, Lightweight
  • Cons: Ball Head Mediocre

Small but strong!

  • Excerpt: This was purchased as a companion for my Slik two-axis macro adjust unit since my large Slik tripod cannot get low enough for macro shots. In addition, it is useful for light travel, but needs to be placed on a flat surface for that application. This was the best for the size and price I found, and I always like Slik tripods; my first was an 800G.

some things do come in small packages

  • Excerpt: I was looking for something small but stable to accomodate my recently purchased Canon G1X. I do own full size tripods but wanted something that would be as portable as the G1X camera. I've owned slik Tripods in the past and they are a pretty decent tripod for the money. Actually the first tripod I owned was a Slik. It served me well for a few years. The convertible center column was a huge plus for me.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

Fabulous

  • Excerpt: First of all, let me say that I am a SLIK fan.Given that, I needed a small desktop tripod to take macros with at work. I chose the Mini II and it really fit the bill.As always, the head clamps are nice and tight with positive feel. Once I set the angle of the camera, it does't move at all.I am using this with my travel cameras only (Nikon S8200 and P510) and not a heavier DSLR.All in all, a very fine desktop tripod. I threw my other one away after getting the SLIK.
  • Pros: Small, Strong

Great Little Tripod - Fills a Niche

707 Jet Jockey, Adorama
9 December 2011
  • Excerpt: I have an extensive tripod collection - everything from the heavyweight monsters to table-top units. I had to search extensively to find a solid tripod that was larger and more capable than a table-top tripod. Most were too large, too small, or too flimsy. This tripod is small enough for carry anywhere, yet it is solid enough to support a substantial SLR camera with a fairly large lens. Very few tripods address this need.

Small but Mighty, great for travel.

  • Excerpt: Even though this tripod is small, it has all the pro features that any tripod has. I use it with a Nikon D300 with a double grip and it works fine. It's very stable on solid ground.It folds up small enough to easily fit into a suitcase or backpack. This is not my main tripod but it works great for travel.It even comes with a simple ballhead that works fine. You can remove it and put your favorite ballhead on if you want.Thumbs up.
