From the Manufacturer

Lightweight and compact, the 2001UT is an excellent travel tripod. Designed for use with compact still or digital cameras or camcorders, the 2001UT offers a 3-way pan head with tilt reference scale and separate locking controls, and features a quick-release mounting plate with retractable video indexing pin. With a folded length of only 19.7", the 2001UT extends to 49", yet weighs a mere 37 ounces with its solid 22mm leg diameter.

Added stability from metal center leg braces with separate locking knob assures rigid support, while heavy-duty rubber leg tips keep the 2001UT tripod in place at all times. Quick-release leg locks make setup fast and easy, even while wearing gloves. The gearless "lift n lock" center column, with its large, ribbed locking collar, permits fast height adjustments, while a separate tension/load control can be set for cameras weighing as much as 4 lbs. 6 oz.

All UT series tripods feature unique styling and a distinctive champagne finish. Features on all UT series tripods include 3-way pan heads with reference scales, large locking panhandles, quick release platforms, metal center leg braces, tension/load adjustment, quick-release leg locks and heavy-duty rubber leg tips, some with leg spikes, for fast setup and rock solid stability.

Every UT series tripod includes a free 2nd quick-release mounting plate for a second camera/camcorder.

By Gadgester HALL OF FAME on December 15, 2004
The Sunpak 2001UT tripod is a good basic tripod, esp. for digital cameras. The reason for my saying this is that this is a light-weight tripod, and its maximum load is about 4.2 pounds. This is sufficient for digital cameras that do not use interchangeable lenses, and also for SLRs or digital SLRs that use a lightweight lens. So, if you have a 300mm telephoto or zoom lens on your SLR you MUST get something heavier and sturdier. For others whose camera (plus lens) is less than 4 pounds, this lightweight tripod is perfect. It's pretty good quality, easy to use, has a quick-release camera plate (so you can take the plate with the camera for that quick handheld shot), and is light enough to carry with you anywhere you go.

After I lost my previous tripod, I bought this one on amazon. I really like this tripod

These are some of the cool features I like in this tripod.
1. I can adjust it to any height using center pole.
2. Using quick release pan head, it is easy to switch between camera and camcorder.
3. Adjustments are smooth, at the same time, we can stop the horozontal/vertical movement by tightening corresponding screw.
4. I can take vertical (portrait) pictures also. I was not able to do that with my previous tripod.
5. It is sturdy and holds camera tight.

The only thing I find it missing is, bubble indicator.

I agree with the reviews that speak of the good features of this tripod... it is lightweight, easy to set up, compacts to a reasonable size, and is not difficult to carry.

I purchased this tripod in 2004 but have never used it with my video camera; it always held my still camera. This year, I began using my video camera and a tripod was needed for smooth panning and tilt for an hour-long shoot. The subject was a corporate trainer whose motions did not follow a predictable path.

The first taping, I found the joints a little sticky, even though the clamps were loosened. To prepare for the next taping, I attempted to lubricate he mechanism. That is when I realized that the design and construction was the cause and not that the tripod needed the lubricant.

The construction of the joints had large clearances thus the tradeoff was keeping the adjustment snug or allowing the maximum freedom to eliminate the stickiness. On the second taping, I loosened everything up and was more careful. Some erratic movement could be edited out and some was compensated by the video camera's steady-cam features.

While I like this tripod for my still pictures I would suggest evaluating other tripods for video use when panning, or tilt is needed.

First it looks professional. Locks on the legs are "quick", you can release and adjust the legs very fast. One problem is that if you don't want to strecth the legs full way, then you have to use your imagination to make it stand level. It is much lighter than it looks. The legs and structure is made of thin and hollow pieces to reduce weight, still it is sturdy and holds the camera firm. The quick release pan head is also a nice feature that helps you to fix and release your camera without unscrewing the pan. An extra pan also comes with it that helps you to use two cameras alternatively without bother. The pan can be adjusted in three coordinates. A small complaint is that, there is no indicator with which to check if the pan surface is horizontal, so again one needs to guess.

The tripod has also a center pole that extends to about 1 foot and helps adjust the camera height without need to adjust legs. When legs are closed it is reasonably small.

I would say this is a great tripod for home and vacation use and for the price you pay, you get a worthy service.

After reading a series of mixed reviews of this tripod, with trepidation I bought one, and I'm so glad I did. It is sturdy, lightweight, easily adjustable, and perfect for my needs, which is to take stable photos with a Nikon D80 SLR. Among the reviews that were misleading were those that described the legs as not locking (they do...at any height or angle)and the case as not slinging over the shoulder (it does, it's just that you have to use it with the strap so that the zipper is at the bottom). This is an amazing value. My only regret is having spent so much time trying to decide whether to get it.

I'm one of those people who researches purchases -- almost all of them. Chose this tripod and liked it so well that when it was stolen from my car, I immediately bought a second one. Made this selection because I'm entering into light video production (professionally)and didn't have the bucks for more exalted models. Its light weight makes it ideal for my use out in the field. Perfectly steady for average use, swivel action is smooth, and the quick-release plate is very helpful (and the bonus plate is just that: a bonus!). Only caveat is that it might not be tall enough for some people, but I use the LCD screen, not the viewfinder, so it works fine for me. And taller would translate to bulkier/heavier.

I paid ~$20 for this tripod and I have to say that for the price, you just can't beat it. It is highly adjustable, stable, and has nice, removable camera footings. I've used this tripod quite extensively since I bought it, and it has held up very nicely.
