Slik Sprint Mini II GM User Reviews
Sprint Mini Tripod is Great
“This tripod is great for traveling. It is extremely light weight and small. It still services very well as a tripod….I use mine for a plein air painting so it holds a paint easel. It is steady and secure enough.” – By Stephanie
A perfect portable tripod
“I bought this tripod to use with my Nikon D90 + Nikon lens 18-200mm in my travel to Europe. This tripod can support very well my camera, only when i put my camera in vertical position the adjust was a little hard. Easy to adjust with ball head. I recommend this product to carry in a travel, it’s perfect.” – By Franzbs
Very protable tripod
“The perfect accessory to my compact camera. I neede a tripod to take along on motorcycle trips. This unit is 14″ long with a quick release mount. It stands about 5 ‘ fully extended. Not for a heavy SLR camera. Light and portable.” – By matts1050
An Excellent Light and Little Travel Tripod
“I like the discreet angle stops for the legs and the two piece center post. When fully collapsed and ball head tilted to the side, this tripod is about 13.5″ long and as compact as most any travel tripod I have seen. The Slik Mini II also feels stronger and stiffer than the other tripods in its class. This tripod also fits very nicely and sung in the external vertical side pocket of a SYNERGY Computer Backpack from Swiss Gear with just the ballhead portion of the tripod exposed. The compression style center post collar nut turns smoothly and a nice feature that adds extra stiffness to the tripod at full height. “ – By Directed Energy
Outstanding wildflower tripod
“All in all, I LOVE this tripod for what I use it for: wildflower shots and some scenic shots. It’s lightweight, packs easily while hiking, is flexible enough to extend and adjust legs for camera positioning in various awkward, hillside, in-the-creekbed locations. The quick-release means you can easily and repeatedly get the camera on and off the tripod to move to other locations while hiking. For about $75, you can’t go wrong with this one! “ – By G. Peterson
Awesome little lightweight tripod for traveling, hiking/backpacking, mountain climbing, and carrying it for extended periods
“The combination of the Slik Mini II and the Vanguard SBH-30 ball head is a perfect match! The SBH-30 ball head weighs a little more and is slightly bulkier, but its bigger quick-release plate is rock solid holding my Canon 7D and 70-200mm telephoto zoom lens, I can pan smoothly and accurately now, and the SBH-30 supports 11 pounds compared with the 4.5 pounds on the Slik ball head.” – By Bond… James Bond
Great little tripod
“After looking at just about every compact tripod out there, I think this is the perfect tripod for travel, if you’re using a point and shoot or a light DSLR with a not-so-long lens. I’m using it with a Canon S95 and with a compact like this, there isn’t any need for a stronger and heavier tripod. The build quality is excellent and it’s so small and light that it’ll easily stow away in any backpack and I forget it’s even there. I was suprised at how sturdy it is, despite its weight. The gunmetal finish is nice – it’s slightly stippled and doesn’t show scratches as easily as it would if it was painted black. It looks and feels pretty rugged, like it’ll last for a long time. For the price, this is a no brainer.” – By Mikey likes it
