The ONLY relative negative to this tripod is that it's rather expensive for a tiny tripod. Roughly double to triple the trivial price tripods in the tiny genre demand. This, however, isn't much of a concern if you're more than just a casual hobbyist. In all honesty, I use this tripod more than I do my other tripods, and that includes my $500 carbon Manfrotto. It is easily my least expensive tripod and I use it the most by far.

This, in my opinion, is a professional's secret weapon for backpacking/camping/travel/difficult-to-get-to locations without a crew. If you must pack light, really light, this tripod is a lifesaver for light to medium-weight gear as you otherwise wouldn't be packing ANY tripod.

My main initial concern with this pod was how well the tiny ballhead would do with a medium SLR on it. Um, REALLY WELL, that's how! :O I even put my D700 with 28-300 on it and it holds like a champ at all angles and is SMOOTH. Now, this has got to clearly be right at the limit of what this little pod is rated or limited at, but who is really going to load such a tiny pod up with such heavy gear? My D7000 with 18-200 (yes, different rig from D700 with 28-300 but still of heft) is held just fine on it. When using full-size SLRs though, a more stable tripod would be preferred. For point and shoots, this head is way overkill.

The leg quick-release levers are strong and smooth and work great. All other controls hold very well though the neck's screw never really seems tight and this could lead to overtightening. Moderate screw tightness combined with the neck's barrel tightener provide solid neck locking.

You have to understand that such a light tripod will by physical nature not be real steady and fall victim to breezes.

Items were received without a box, manual or batteries. Holder does not hold the phone in place. I would not order these again

Horrible design. Very cheap and flimsy. The extendable pole is very cheaply made and does not stay in place but will continue to turn in itself as there is no resistance or 'locking' of each section. So the weight of your phone will just have the whole thing falling over in a never ending circle and will never stay up. The clamp is terrible and the screw will unscrew itself when rotating the pole so it does not stay in place.
The Bluetooth remote is the only slightly good thing about this but even that is flimsy and is slow to respond.
Just an overall waste of money because you will not be able to use the pole as intended. Do not buy if your phone is not small or light as a feather. Just don't buy it at all.

The Slik Sprint Mini II Tripod I received was made in Thailand and a "Most Excellent" product for the $78 price. In terms of value, engineering, selection of materials used, the quality of the individual parts, to the ease of operation I recommend this product as a MUST HAVE for any active photographer.

Yes, the Slik Mini II is small and compact but that is exactly what a person wants in a travel tripod. This unit is light and sets up very fast. The quick release tripod adapter is a nice new addition over the last model and the primary motivator for me to give this light weight yet fairly stiff tripod a chance with the rest of the gear.

The ball head for the value is smooth, locks into place firmly and holds a fully outfitted Pentax K20D with BG2 battery pack, 360 Flash and 18-50 f2.8 Sigma at full height with grace (no wind). Granted, a load of this nature is pushing the tripod's design envelope but even then, the Slik Mini II took the load very well. Just make sure for optimum stability that you have a tripod leg extended in the same direction as the lens.

The foam padding on the legs are a nice touch and make the tripod look like a mini version of a Bogen 3021. The gun metal finish looks sharp and resonates of a grade above the casual photographer, and an item that those in the profession would not feel diminished in anyway while using this product. The plastic quick releases on the legs are sufficiently large enough that the releases feel secure when locked and not too large that they add unnecessary bulk to the legs and make packing the tripod more cumbersome. Although the leg releases are made of plastic, the grade of plastic used appears to be of high quality and does not plant a concern in my mind.

Okay, I am always skeptical about buying anything without reviews - whether it be on Amazon or any other website. I took a chance with this item and was so pleasantly surprised! It did exactly what I need it to do - take pictures from far away. This is perfect for couples who enjoy doing things together but don't necessarily want to keep asking people to take their picture or even keep asking when it came out terrible because the stranger you asked had his finger blocking the flash or had shaky hands. My boyfriend & I used this on a hiking trip where finding someone to take our picture would be difficult to begin with. We got to the top of the mountain and were able to take a wonderful picture of ourselves and the best part is you can't even tell we took it! If you angle it the right way and hold your hand low, it looks amazing! Tip: Download the Camera+ app and use the timer setting.

My only compliant is that it's incredibly sturdy in the pole part which is good and bad. Good because it's obviously sturdy but bad because I feel like I may break it when trying to rip it open. The top piece that holds your phone is also a little loose (even though I keep tightening it) and the holder could be a little tighter. All in all, it's amazing but with a few manufacturing tweaks, it would be perfect.

EDIT 7/10/14:
It seems this item has changed slightly since I was the first to review so I just wanted to quickly update. I have the blue pole "Sold by Esaci and Fulfilled by Amazon". It's still going strong and I still use the timer setting on the Camera+ app in the Apple app store (so you don't need a remote).
