Slik Mini-Pro V Tripod with 2-Way Pan/Tilt Head - Supports 3.3 lb (1.5 kg)

As a compact traveler tripod, the Slik Mini Pro V is less than 8 inches long when packed up and weighs less than a pound.

      I use this with a light tent to do product photography, macro photography, ... I love this tripod however there is one glaring annoyance; it wont tilt up and down. I didn't think this would be as big a deal as it is. I'm constantly wanting to tilt the camera angle down or up depending on what I'm shooting. You can do this in a limited way by adjusting the legs, however, at times it drives me nuts. Overall though I'm really glad I bought this, for the price, it was worth buying and it does come in very handy for me. Also, I have a Canon XSi with kit lens and I can put it in Landscape or Portrait orientation and this tripod holds the camera just fine if I set the legs right.

      This is a great little tabletop tripod and eliminates the need for a steadybag to frame a shot. It's controls are sturdy and professional, though not quite like a fluid head. It works perfectly with both my video cam and my still cams. I do wish I could lock the legs so they wouldn't have to be flat out to hold a heavier camera steady. Maybe they can make a spreader? It's also handy while I'm uploading video to my computer. And looks cool on my desktop.

          Good little tripod which folds up and fits in the top compartment of my lowepro sling bag. The build quality of this unit is adequate and provides enough support for my Canon 40d and various lenses.

            The tripod has great construction, is very stable, easily adjustable and wonderfully lightweight. I just keep it in my backpack at all times as a good-whenever shot assist. I knew how much it would extend when I got it, but I'd like to see something with nearly identical construction that telescopes to a longer length. For the most part, it fills the role for which it was purchased.

                    I work in a lab enviroment and often have to document test results. This is great for taking table top photos. the 2 way pan/tilt allows me to set the angle I need, preset the lighting, and snap away.

                    Great little tripod. I use it with my Canon XS and my Sigma 70 mm macro. You can hold it against your chest, on a building, floor, table or ground and it's light enough to hand hold. The tilt / pan action is a little stiff, just takes a little getting used to. Very satisfied with this produce!

                    It's cheap, but sturdy. Even with a D7000 a a heavy 17-55 2.8, this thing is surprisingly stable. Fantastic to have a tripod hidden in your camera bag for when you need it, rather than lugging my giant, heavy and very cumbersome full size tripod.

                          A bit pricier than most comparable tabletop tripods with p/t heads. Was hoping for smoother pan action based on other reviews. Pan is OK, but it's still metal on metal. Was hoping for something more fluid-like, as in my old Velbon full-size tripod. (Unfortunately, the Velbon tabletop tripod looks too tall for my uses.) Can't help but feel I'd have been just as happy with a cheaper Sunpak. Of course, it does tilt as well, unlike (mistakenly) stated in another review. Does seem sturdy. Also would've preferred a quick release plate or ability to tilt camera 90 degrees (portrait mode) for this price.

                          This will more than likely not be used as your everyday tripod... due to its size, but for the price, i love having it around for those long exposure shots where a full size tri-pod may be a little tight.
                          if used this on counters, tables, floors, and even the hood of my truck.

                          well built, and great value!

                            The Specs said Max load is 3.3 pounds but this little tripod could handle my Canon 7D and 100mm Macro lens easily which is good enough for me. The legs are tube-like aluminum and not really solid so I wouldn't try hamering a nail with it, but other than that it holds up pretty well especially for the price ! I really like the smooth pan movement which comes in handy when shooting close-ups and macros.

                            Comments about Slik Mini-Pro V Tripod with 2-Way Pan/Tilt Head - Supports 3.3 lb (1.5 kg):

                            I film football games for a high school in Indianapolis, IN. We are playing in Lucas Oil Stadium and where you film from is very high up, but the location has a counter in front of it so it is difficult to set up a standard tripod and film. The Slik Mini-Pro V allows me to set up the camera on the counter and so the films will be smooth with no jerking due to trying to move the tripod, the Mini-Pro V will insure easy panning. The tripod is light weight, but strong enough to handle a Canon GL2. The only wish I have is it needs a carrying case with strap so you can easily carry it with all of the other equipment.

                              campact, not weight, cheap and very user friendly, this is the best choice for who want stability and not have enough space in the bag.

                                I use the tripod as part of stability!! I create jewelry, and when setting up photoshoots, it is the perfect tool! Small, portable, lightweight and sturdy.. The legs do NOT draw in like some other small tri-pods.. I also use this for family, friends and group shots!
                                So very glad to have found this item at B&H- my Favorite supply store!!!!

                                I use this when a full size tripod is perceived as being intrusive. If you have ever video taped people in public and have used a full size tripod then you have seen looks of shock and disapproval. Spontaneity never returns. The low profile and almost full sized performance have greatly improved my recording sessions. Because of its small size I am afraid of leaving it behind while I am outdoors in a park setting.

                                  Works well with my 7D and some pretty heavy lenses. Fairly smooth action all around and very compact.

                                  This is perfect if you have very limited space when travelling and still want some steady long exposure shots. Price is excellent!

                                  Only one thing, build quality could be just a tad better, but I'm nitpicking really.

                                      I make detail photos of scale models with a heavy macro lens. This tripod enables me to properly support and aim on table tops and other odd surfaces. I also make flower and insect close up photos. Unlike many other mini tripods, this compact tripod can support my rig in a stable position.

                                      Best for use on tabletops and other flat surfaces. Height doesn't extend much. Handles heavy cameras and lenses easily.
