Awesome tripod for SLR
“SO…. i recently just bought a canon t1i… and hasve been doing my research, frantically looking for a GREAT yet CHEAP tripod to support my newest baby. all the other tripods that were below the price range, had average reviews.. and there would always be a couple people whose pieces would fall apart, quick release plates come off unexpectedly… and i even saw a couple where a persons SLR fell off along with the quick release plate( phew)… so i found this baby! totally perfect! not to mention it has a very adequate height when its fully extended, and is VERY compact when folded. and ITS sturdy. the ballhead quality and the build of the legs will not let you down.” – By Ish the Fish
Sprint Pro II GM Tripod with Ballhead
“I bought the Sprint Pro II GM Tripod with Ballhead and am very pleased with my purchase. I folds compactly enough to fit in my motorcycle’s saddlebag, but extends almost (I am 6-4) to my eye level. I was amazed. I like the ball head. It is a lot easier to use than all the arms and knobs found on a standard head.” – By Jeff
“Just wanting to throw an amateurs point of view out there. Makes it incredibly easy to get the shots I wanted and a lot faster than my previous tripod. One of my favorite features is the ballhead. Also, it feels really sturdy and doesn’t wobble even when fully extended. The only thing that would have made it better is a fiery red color. That is all. “ – By Frank Dawson
“With much deliberation between this tripod and the one with the three way tilt head I chose the ball head for one main reason, it is more compact and streamlined when carrying it. This little tripod is awesome and I have put it through the ringer with my D300. There is one little issue that could make this product so much better. The surface area for the mount is tiny, very tiny and the friction between the screw mount and the camera loosens way before the ball head.” – By A. Haren
Superb portability and funcitonality for Four Thirds Format Camera
“Coupled with a third-party ball head (Vanguard SBH-50), I got myself a superbly portable and functional device. With the latest trend in the new Four Thirds cameras, this device will be the best choice among devices now available in the market, including ones made with fibers. With its capacity of up to a load of 2 Kg, there is ample room to deal with even heavier lenses when they become available (mine is a 14-140mm zoom lens).” – By Bill
This is a Slik Winner
“This is an amazing buy! For under $100 you get a versatile tripod that will work for general use as well as macro. Its lightweight and also comes with a cool case that makes it easy to take around. I’ve only had it for a few days, but am quite pleased with it and am looking forward to getting some great shots with this gem! If you’re on a tight budget but want a good, quality tripod, your search is over!” – By RCNorm
Great Tripod for Nikon D5000
“I really researched tripods. But could not afford some of the nicer ones. Well believe me this tripod does not disappoint me and is sturdy enough for my D5000. I played with it this a.m. and no complaints. It is light and I look forward to using it on some of my hikes!” – By cbear
This SLIK is Slick
“I own two of these ‘pods and I really enjoy using them. I have one for me and one for my wife. They are easy to carry when out in the field. We strap them on our Camelbacks or a camera backpack. Quick to set up and take down. Also a great tool for getting pesky critters out of our way when we’re in the field. Haven’t had an occasion to use them indoors as of yet. I’m sure they will be just as easy and useful as when outdoors. “ – By Bob
