Product Description

Designed to travel, the SPRINT PRO II is a compact tripod with 4 legs sections to collapse down to less than 19 inches and weighsjust 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 new SLIK SBH-100DQ all-metal compact ball head 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.

Totally agree with Persepolis' review, so I'll add just a few extra comments.

Pros:
-Aluminum construction. This means solid, jitter-free construction versus overpriced, plastic-construction tripods from Best Buy. I just shake my head at the Best Buy tripods.
-Amazingly portable due to its low mass and collapsible, 3-section leg design.

Cons:
-The lowest leg sections are thin and small (diameter-wise). Great for reducing weight, but bad for stability. I recommend extending the smallest section last.
-A little unstable when fully extended. I'm 6'2", and to get the tripod to a comfortable height requires full leg extension and almost full extension of the stem. While vibration dampening is still good, the tripod has a tendency to twist about the center axis. So I rarely use it fully extended. I just extend the legs, leave the stem almost the entire way down, and squat to the viewfinder. :-/
-No pan. I know it's a ball head, and Slik doesn't claim it can pan. But it would be great to have pan as well since I love to shoot multiple-image panoramics. The ball head either allows several degrees of freedom (untightened) or none at all (tightened).

------EDIT BEGIN
All, please note that it looks like this tripod has gone through a design change since my posting this review in 2009. The new version appears to no longer have a level, plus other potential changes (I don't have the new version so I can't comment on the newer one)
Please keep all of of this in mind when reading my review below. tnx
------EDIT END

I ordered this tripod to replace one from a manufacturer that rhymes with Hogan :-) Figure it out. LOL.

Pros:
--Weighs in at 2 lbs 4 oz.
--Extends to 67" from ground to platen.
--19 inches collapsed, so it can fit in a backpack (with a few inches sticking out)
--Padded booties on the upper most segment... a joy for walking around with the tri in your hand.
--3 Lockable leg positions. Narrow, wide, and super wide for getting the tripod near the ground.
--*invertable stem*! Just unscrew the stem in the middle, pull it out, invert, screw back... and HELLO... you have a tripod for doing close-up macro shots!
--Separable stem- can unscrew lower portion and leave it off... so you can collapse the tripod down near the ground.
--3 leg segments. While it limits how short it'll be once it is collapsed, you can extend/retract fewer segments faster (i.e., 9 clips vs. 12 for a 4 segment design)
--Head can adjust pitch by about 300 degrees, roll/tilt by about 90 degrees, and 360 yaw**(with caveats, see cons)
--Ability to hold a Canon T1i *with* a 200mm lens fully extended without droop.
--Has liquid-level.
--Hackable: most parts on it have obvious ways of removing/dis-assembly using screws or threads rather than being punched or welded in place. If you're creative you may be able to do some interesting things with this feature.

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. The three way head has a larger mount and not sure if it would present the same problems. Shooting horizontal I had no problems of the head moving, even with my 70-300mm FULLY extended! vertical was a different story and that was because of the rotational force on the mount. The screw just loosened. I guess I could have flipped the camera to the other side so instead of loosening it would tighten but that would put the shutter under the camera and it is very un-natural. With my smaller lenses this wasn't much of a problem. So for small lenses and a medium to light camera body this tripod is amazing, for larger cameras and lenses the horizontal orientation works best.

Pros: Light, small, sturdy, well built, extends to almost 6 feet, lowers to under 8 inches
Cons: Small mount plate causes camera droop on vertical shots.
Best for: Home, Hiking, Backpacking, Car - overall travel tripod
Would not recommend for: Studio

I needed a tripod for a class I was taking. The instructors highly recommend the use of tripods. I needed something better than the 50.00 one I had bought in the past. So I thought this one sounded ideal. Yes, it is lightweight. However, I like to use my 55-200mm zoom on my Nikon D3000 DSLR, and when my camera is mounted on the tripod and the shutter releases, the action of the shutter releasing actually makes the tripod (& my camera- negating the use of a tripod) move! And this camera has no mirror lock-up feature so I don't have the benefit of that, even. If I'm looking through the viewfinder when the shutter opens & closes, I can even see the camera move. Wow. It may be OK for a DSLR with a regular lens, but I typically use this zoom and it's no good for that.
Also, if it's windy out, I'm pretty sure I see the tripod sway in the breeze.
So now I'm about to buy a more expensive tripod, and I want one that's good and solid this time! Otherwise what's the point of using a tripod, anyway?
