Slik U8000 overview

  • 1Description

This SLIK U8000 Tripod supports up to 4.5 lb, measures 23.2" when folded and includes a three-way, pan-and-tilt head. Its 3-section legs each feature flip locks for fast deployment, and can be positioned for a minimum height of 22.0" to a maximum height of 47.2", or 59.0" with its column fully raised. The column utilizes a geared movement for precise height adjustments and an integrated center brace allows the legs to be spread simultaneously as well as uniformly. The center brace helps to hold the legs in place, which include rubber feet to further enhance stability on a wide variety of surfaces.

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 pan-and-tilt head using a cam lock. The head can be rotated 360°, and tilted 90° backwards or forwards, as well as sideways for portrait orientation. Both the 360° rotation as well as the 90° backward or forward tilt movements function simultaneously and can be set in place using the pan bar's integrated twist lock. When changing from a landscape to portrait orientation, the sideways tilt can be independently adjusted and secured.

    Slik U8000 reviews

    U8000 Tripod with 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Problems Here I've had this tripod for over 10 years now and I've never had any problems with it. It's a basic tripod with very few bells and even fewer whistles. The legs go up and they go down. You can swivel your camera 360 degrees, or point it up towards the sky or down to the ground and have no worries about locking eveything into place. There's nothing fancy about this thing and if I were going into a war zone, this isn't the tripod that I would want with me. But for normal things like taking pictures at home or ordinary landscape photography where you can respect your equipment, you won't find much better than this one for the price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good value overall, but two caveats This has been my only tripod for several years, although it hasn't seen much use. It seems reasonably well built overall for the price, but I've had two problems with it. First, the lever broke off the crank for raising and lowering the center column. This isn't that big a deal since it's still possible to adjust the height, but annoying nonetheless. Second, the anti-rotation pin on the quick-release plate isn't in the right position to work with my Olympus E-620. This isn't a problem for horizontal shots, but when you flip the head over for vertical shots, heavier lenses make the camera unscrew from the quick-release plate. If the pin fit right or they had designed the head to flip the other direction, this wouldn't have been a problem.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice tripod, BUT: Holds any camera I have. Lightweight and the price was right. However, as others have reported, the crank lever broke off with just a little pressure, but I can still raise it using my fingers. Cheap construction on the crank. I'd advise to be very careful using the crank lever.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crank handle broke off I wonder if there is a recall on this tripod, looks like I am not the only one the crank handle broke off on. Otherwise it has been a work horse for me.
    Date published: 2015-12-08
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Design Features Crank handle broke off after just a few uses. Unable to locate replacement parts so we must raise and lower tripod by hand...what a pain
    Date published: 2012-06-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these little tripods! I actually use these little tripods as light stands for my Nikon Speedlights. I do real estate photography and find them better than regular light stands because of the small footprint and the fact that they are sturdy even when extended only a few inches. I can hide them behind furniture and in narrow spaces. I attach the Nikon AS-19 mini stand to the tripod so all I have to do when I get to a location is pop open the light stands and slide the Speedlight into the AS-19. The bag that comes with the tripod is sturdy and allows me to carry everything very easily. I ordered another model and return it to buy the U8000 by Slik. (I would like o claim credit with the idea of using a tripod as a light stand, but it came from Scott Hargis, a talented real estate photographer/teacher.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tripod This tripod is very sturdily built and it is very stable in the field. I am using it for plein aire painting and the Coulter Palette Box and easel frame make a supurb combination. The entire set up is less than 5 pounds so it is easy to carry into the field.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not recommended Bad design - should have returned. Cannot be tilted to full 90' for portrait orientation. Crank handle very delicate.
