This gun metal-colored, SLIK Sprint Mini II Tripod with SBH-100DQ Ball Head supports up to 4.5 lb, measures 13.8" when folded, and includes a quick release plate. Each of its 4-section legs features an independent spread, a 3-position angle lock, and flip locks for fast deployment. The included push-and-pull, rapid center column is multi-sectional, which allows it to be converted to a shortened center column. This feature permits a minimum height of 13.3", or 6.4" when the center column is shortened. The SLIK Sprint Mini II Tripod provides a maximum height of 32.0", 35.3" with its center column shortened as well as fully raised, and 43.0" with the complete column fully raised.

Cameras, sport optics, or camcorders that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the quick release plate, which is secured to the tripod's ball head using a quick release cam lock. The head provides up to a 90° tilt for portrait orientation, 360° of independent rotation, and can be locked into place along its range of movement.

For added versatility, the center column is reversible, facilitating low-angle photography where an attached camera is positioned among the tripod's legs instead of above them. Foam covers on each of the legs provide a secure and comfortable grip while moving the tripod, and rubber feet help to enhance stability on a wide variety of surfaces.

A nylon, drawstring bag is included for storage and transport.

    Slik Mini II GM reviews

    Sprint Mini II Tripod with SBH-100DQ Ball Head (Gun Metal) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 110.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but has some downsides. The best feature of this tripod is the size. I have had a very difficult time finding a good tripod under 15 that can be carried inside a backpack during traveling and hiking. This tripod is sturdy and of pretty good build quality, but not as heavy duty as it appears in the photos. All the leg segments are plastic except the top ones. My major complaint is the ballhead. I am not a big fan of ballheads as you run a risk of the camera falling forward if you ever loosen the head without holding onto the camera. A ballhead also makes it difficult to take panoramas or use the tripod for video. That being said, if the ballhead doesnt bother you, then this is a good purchase compared to the other options available.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing Head This was specifically purchased to support a Vortex Razor spotting scope at the range. I was looking for a tripod that had a low minimum height to make it easy to look through while sitting next to me on the shooting platform. I actually like everything about the tripod except the head due to an inability to be able to accurately lock it down when I have the Razor in the position I want; there's always some slack in the head that causes the Razor to drop when I try to lock it, thus making it necessary to compensate up before doing so. Yes, it's an inexpensive unit, but this isn't rocket science. Do I think the Razor is too big/heavy for it? No, I simply believe that the adjustments and head unit itself are not well engineered.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent travel tripod! At under 2 lbs. and just over a foot when folded up, this is a great tripod for travel or other situations where you don't want to be lugging around a huge piece of equipment. I use it with my Canon Rebel XSi and it feels very sturdy, though I have so far not used it with anything heavier than the kit lens. The multi-angle legs can be adjusted individually, which is a must for uneven surfaces, and set-up is quick and easy. The only drawback is that the maximum height is only 43, but that's to be expected with such a compact tripod. Its portability and ease of use are definitely worth the trade-off in height.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product for the price I'm a backcountry hunter that likes to keep things light and tight. This tripod keeps the weight down and compacts nice for travel. I am very pleased for the price I paid. A note to B&H service: I was a little hesitant to order this from B&H as my first experience shopping with your company was sub-par. My first order sat in processing for way too long. although i go for the free shipping options, that should only affect how long it takes for the item to get to me from the store not how long it takes to process the order. however, on a kudos note: my second order seen here was a vast improvement and very timely, well done!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing travel/backpacking tripod I've been using mine for over 7 years now. It has been on dozens of plane rides (fits easily in a carryon) all over the world. It's been on many multiple day backpacking treks and is still holding up wonderfully. I would absolutely suggest looking to replace the head if you're wanting to get the most out of it, especially if you plan to support a DSLR or larger mirrorless rig (as I do). I've found the Sirui C-10 head is a perfect mate. Adds very little weight compared to the included head, uses the Arca Swiss release plate and supports 33 lbs which is more than I'd want to have traveling or trekking. This isn't a heavy duty tripod by any means, and if you're looking for a workhorse, I'd look elsewhere, but I've used this to support my 5DII + 70-200 f/2.8 L IS USM lens with no problems once I switched out the head for the Sirui. For travel, this tripod has been perfect for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and yet dependable! I got two(2) tripods: one that is heavy and another one that is light but pliable & unstable. Since I'm going to travel few months from now, I need a tripod that is small,easy to pack, light weight and sturdy that is why I bought this SLIK SPRINT MINI II TRIPOD. When I got hold of the item,I was so happy because I was satisfied. My only comment is that the plate of the ball head is small and it can carry only 2kgs. though it can carry my NIKON D7000 + 50-135mm TOKINA lens + SB600 flash unit. How I wish that SLIK will change the ball head to something that can carry 4kgs with a bubble level.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. This is one of my favorite purchase from B&H. Very sturdy especially for it's compact size. Strong head. The size and weight is very small and light. It's smaller than the length of my backpack. It expands very large and shrinks to a very small size. The tripod is mostly metal with just a few plastic parts. Adjustable legs, detachable head. Quick release and mounting plate. The middle bar also unscrews in half so you can get even closer to the ground. Comfortable hand grips. Terrific tripod

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight and portable You won't find a better bang for the buck in a travel tripod than this. It is tiny and extremely light. Stability is good considering but, this is not a tripod that I would walk away from with any size DSLR on it. I think the first good sized wind would take it down. Of course, it's not meant to be a big stable pod....it's for when you don't want to or can't travel with a big one. Or - like me - don't want to drop the bucks on a Benro travel angel or Gitzo. All things considered I would recommend - goes great with the Case Logic SLRC-205.
