Simple, inexpensive and highly reliable, Slik's Standard Ballhead II exhibits a high degree of precision craftsmanship and will yield years of trouble-free use. The Standard Ballhead II's 2.2" (55mm) diameter camera mounting area has a free-turning anti-scratch plate surrounding the camera screw, to greatly reduce the chance of your camera becoming jammed upon the head. Weight was a continual concern in this ballhead's design; it is often said that upon a long journey even a straw weighs a ton, and to save every bit of a traveller's weight penalty the head is designed for use without a quick release plate. Even the best of magnesium quick release assemblies adds 100 grams or so of weight, and the philosophy here is to do without for the sake of lightness. Despite this, attaching and detaching of the head to the camera is pretty quick. The Standard II's locking action is positive and the ball position does not move, even slightly, after it is locked. The Standard Ball Head II is only for light weight SLR/lens combinations: though the head's load rating is a robust 11 lb, it is generally looked upon as ideally suited for use with camera/lens/etc. combinations weighing not more than five pounds. Visual Confirmation: The locking lever, unlike round locking knobs, makes it blatantly apparent whether the ball is locked or unlocked; if it is pointing up, it is locked. Speedy Attachment Without a Quick Release's Additional Weight: Just 3 or 4 half-turns of the mounting platform attaches ballhead to camera, and the platform's underside is ergonomically designed specifically for this task. Slik's solution is slower than snap-in quick releases, and at least as fast as 'vise grip' quick release assemblies-but eliminates their size, weight and cost.

When folded, the Slik MINI series tripods are about the size of a standard telephoto lens. They can be carried in your camera bag all the time so tripod support is always at hand!Besides traditional tripod use, the Slik MINI series tripods have another great feature: the ability to use the tripod as a "Chest-Pod" camera support! To use as a chest-pod, first loosen the locking collar around the center column, pull out (raise) the center column at least one inch and tighten. Then, with the legs spread, place the feet of the legs against your upper chest. Loosen the tripod head and position the camera so you can see through the viewfinder comfortably. This will better stabilize the camera and help avoid image-degrading "camera shake."The bottom of the center column has a suction cup, which can be used to mount Slik MINI series tripods on a clean smooth glass surfaces, including windows. Stick a MINI series tripod to a window for a higher angle picture or take photos in low light with a slow shutter speed.All Slik MINI series tripods have 2-section telescoping legs to make the tripod more stable and get the camera up just a little higher.Please Note: The suction cup will not hold up cameras weighing more than 10 ounces!
