The award winning SLIK U212 DX’s world-renowned design has carefully evolved for more than 30 years. Designed primarily for lightweight 35mm SLR cameras or compact film and digital cameras, it features a number of exciting design concepts born with the original U212.
The SLIK U212 DX was one of the first tripods to feature speed release leg locks on three-section “NON-TWIST” squared legs that won’t turn. They also have retractable rubber leg tips and spikes for sure footing on any surface.
The quick release camera post is smaller than most quick release plates and you can leave it on the camera. The head has a lens calibrated panorama guide to make 360 degree panoramas from multiple pictures. A geared center column makes fine height adjustments easy.
A threaded mounting post on one leg lets you bring the camera down to just 8 inches (200 mm) from the ground for low angle photos, macro photography in the field, or copy work. The head also includes a bubble level for accurate vertical positioning.
