About Slik Pro II

Designed to travel, the SPRINT PRO II is a compact tripod with 4 legs sections to collapse down to less than 19 inches and weighs just under 2 lbs.

An updated version of the popular SLIK SPRINT PRO series the new SPRINT PRO II has padded leg wraps for more comfortable carrying. The new tripod also has a three way panhead with quick release system for faster, easier mounting of a camera.

The SPRINT PRO II is a full sized tripod when it is extended to its maximum height of almost 64 inches. The adjustable legs angles can be used to splay the legs out and lower the tripod. When used with the built-in short center column, (the included center column unscrews into two pieces) the camera is just 6.4 inches off the ground for extremely low angle or macro photography out in the field. Another way to get the camera low is to reverse the center column which could be used for macro photography or copy work.

The Slik Pro II is commonly used for Landscape/scenery, Travel and more.

Has been great

I use this tripod for hiking. It is a trade off between light and real stability. I use it with an Olympus E-30. When you put the 50-200 lens on it is marginal but functional. The quick locking legs are a plus and have given no problems through about 10,000 photos. I keep the camera on the tripod all the time so I am always moving the legs. I use a 2 second delay on almost all my shots so it gives it time to stabilize. High winds can be a problem. It is trade off. If you want to pack more wei

If you want to pack more weight for the additional stability, then get a heavier tripod.

Nice design but just fell apart

By

This product looked good, looked sturdy eyt light but after several uses one of the lower tripod legs slipped out as the plastic internal washer had broken. I battled on continuing to use not fully extended ( not pulling out lower leg) but even so the other lower legs started to slip out as not longer retained as broken washer affected leg locking mechanism. This unit clearly does not seem to stand up to long use

Perfect for micro four thirds kit

By

I use this unit exclusively with my Panasonic GH3. Even with the 100-300mm (200-600mm) lens, I have no problems with stability. However, I do not use the "center post" on this tripod, or any other tripod that I own. In fact I even removed the center post in order to get the lowest possible angles.

good, but mine was missing a piece!

By

This tripod is light and folds small, making it easy to carry around in a backpack. I bought it for use with a micro four thirds camera and it certainly feels sturdy enough to support this. My one complaint about this tripod is that the one I received was missing one of the two handles needed to properly control and lock the pan head.

Great purchase!

By

I was surprised about the relatively small size - and not too heavy - and its performance once unfolded. Good stability, easy to work with, clever mechanism. But then: I replaced it with a real oldtimer, almost antique. Even though I don't know a lot about what else is out there I like the solid functions and trustworthy handling of it - and would get it again on the spot!

A very good light weight travel tripod

By

The Silk Sprint Pro II is light, extremely flexible, and folds to a compact size thus making it an excellent choice to attach to a sling or traditional camera backpack. I especially like it's ability to reverse the mount and/or fold the legs out to shoot with the camera only a few inches from the floor or ground. It's only downside is a rather weak ball head which supports my Nikon D90 when the camera and lens are horizontal but slips badly when the camera is pointed down at a small angle.

Great for what I wanted

By

I bought this for an upcoming trip to China, to go along with a new T2i. The light weight and compact size were the main selling points. So far I've just used around the house and a recent camping trip. I worked well for all that I wanted it to do

Great backpacking tripod

By

This is an excellent tripod for the money at only [$] with the head. The tripod is very light weight (<2 lbs), but sturdy at the same time. Very high build quality. The lower leg sections are pretty thin, so if you extend them all the way, you lose some rigidity, which may be a pain for shooting in wind, but I haven't had it affect my shooting yet. The legs are independently adjustable and fold out to 88 degrees, and the riser unscrews so this tripod can get almost flat on the ground. It's an excellent tripod for macro photography, being able to get to almost any height and position. I have easily photographed ants on the ground with a 105mm macro.The ball head is small, but barely large enough for a DSLR. I use this with my D90 and a 70-300mm Nikkor. It works, but its almost at it's limit here. The weak point is really the size of the mounting plate.Overall, this is a fantastic, lightweight tripod. Not perfect, but you won't beat it for less than $100. You won't be disappointed!

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Larry S  Good lightweight travel tripod for compact or bridge camera.
Shopper  Which quick release plate does this head use, the DQ-10 or the DQ-20? The GM model suggests the DQ-10, while the black model suggests DQ-20. Are they just different colours, or do they have different heads?
HYONG K  DQ-20
Jessica B  What kind of camera and lenses are you using? I have a Canon T3i + tamron 18-270mm. Reviews I have read for this tripod have been condratictory. Some say only use for point and shoot/compact cameras, others works fine with an SLR + superzoom. Your thoughts?
MAX H  I have a Canon T2i and use a Tamron 70-300mm lens and a 500mm lens and have had no discernible problems with this tripod. I Have taken long exposures of stars and the moon with great results. For the price, it is a good piece of equipment.
