About the Slik U212

The award winning U 212 DX is world-renowned designing that has carefully evolved for more than 20 years. Designed primarily for light weight 35mm SLR cameras or compact film and digital cameras, it features a number of exciting design concepts that were born with the original U 212 and have been copied into other tripods world-wide.

The U212 deluxe was one of the first tripods to feature speed release leg locks on three-section "NON-TWIST" squared legs that will not turn and have retractable rubber leg tips and spikes for sure footing on any surface.

The quick release camera post is smaller than most quick release plates and can be left on the camera almost all the time, so the camera is always ready to be mounted on the U-212 DX's ultra-smooth 3-way pan-head. The head has a lens calibrated panorama guide to make 360 &Mac176; panoramas from multiple pictures. A geared center column makes fine height adjustments easy.

A threaded mounting post on one leg lets you bring the camera down to just 8 inches (200 mm) from the ground for low angle photos, macro photography in the field, or copy work. The head also includes a bubble level for accurate vertical positioning.
