Slik U9000 overview

  • 1Description

This SLIK U9000 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 with twist-out, metal spikes to further enhance stability on a wide variety of surfaces, including soft and uneven soil.

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 quick release 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 U9000 reviews

    U9000 Tripod with 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price! This tripod is awesome! Stood up to 45km/hr winds. And the carrying case it came with is nice too. Makes it so much easier/lighter to carry. It would be nice if it could be slung across the opposite shoulder though (you can only hold it with one shoulder, not across like you could with something like a canvas bag). Still comfortable though. But getting back to the tripod, I only wish it had longer spikes. The ones it has on it are incredibly short and I don't feel like they add too much to stability. Knobs are also a bit annoying to adjust, but that's the nature of the head. The knobs themselves operate smoothly. All in all, a great tripod for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good non-pro quality from a name brand This is a very good low-priced tripod. All the controls are smooth and the leg locks are large and easy to open and lock. I am almost 100% satisfied with the tripod. Another reviewer said the tripod was plasticy, Yes, it is. Since I don't plan on using it HARD, this is not a problem for me. It seems like good solid plastic! Another reviewer said the quick release was large and couldn't be attached/removed from the camera by hand. This is true. I have put a quarter in my camera bag for this purpose. My only BIG complaint about this tripod was also previously mentioned. The camera baseplate that swings up to allow you to go from landscape to portrait shooting does not swing up a full 90 degrees. It's more like 88 or so. It appears that the mold used to make this component was not properly designed to accommodate this. You have to lower a leg to make a portrait-style shot level, which is a bit of a pain.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty Good except for one MAJOR flaw I've owned two of these U9000 tripods and both have suffered the same basic failure - the height-adjustment handle snapped off. Yes, this is an inexpensive value product, but it would make much more sense if the rotating handle assembly was manufactured from a metal allow rather than plastic. I certainly didn't abuse these products, and I avoided greasing or oiling the stiff height-adjustment assembly so as not to introduce any additional play. Needless to say, I'm shopping for a new tripod and I won't be considering SLIK products again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is just right This is a very nice, stable rig for my Fuji Finepix S-1; it is replacing an older model Slik I've had for a number of years now (U6600) since I wanted something a little taller and stronger-built yet not massive. I'm learning the ins and outs of HDR and Time-lapse, both of which activities mandate using a tripod. I should add (for the sake of the purists shaking their heads at this point) that I'm not a pro; strictly amateur, trying to learn something while having a bit of fun at the same time with somewhat limited means. Thanks much, B&H Photo, for having so many fine products at such good prices.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tripod for the $ Love this new tripod. It's a true bang for buck indeed. Of course, it not the pro series tripod but for a beginner like me it did not make sense to spend a lot of money before my skills get to a higher level. And this tripod allows me to do just that. I have a Rebel XSi and it can easily take its weight even with a 300mm lens attached. It's stable and easy to operate. The level is a definite plus. Overall, for newbies like me, I suggest buying it without any hesitation.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light weight / too much freeplay low light photography and still lifes the tirpod is easy to setup and use but the quick release plate is a bit cumbersome. You need a coin to tighten/loosen the plate to the camera. The knob should have been knurled, or come with a tool attached to the tripod. The platform is not completely stable, a little bit too much freeplay in the head assembly (using an EOS7D with 50mm lens). The tripod is inexpensive, and a good buy for the price if you are a casual user.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good tripod I use it for portraits, low light situations and anytime when I just do not feel like holding the camera or need the stability. It is lighter than the 8000 model and if I had known that I would have gotten the 8000 (again), since I own one already and am very pleased with it. The 9000 has two advantages: 1. It has a leveling bubble, 2. It have spikes or rubber feet - nice on gravel or loose ground. What is not so great about it is that it feels cheaper than the 8000 and I do not care for that. I would still recommend it but with a qualification.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good lightweight tripod for the price I like the Slik U9000 because it is very lightweight and easy to drop down and close back up. It is a great tripod if you are moving a lot and don't want to lug around a big heavy one. But you sacrifice some stability for the weight. It also is a bit fragile, I had the same tripod before and one of the connectors to one of the legs broke. But, because I like the ease of opening and closing plus the weight, I bought it again.
