Tech Lending Program: Slik U9000 Tripod

Slik U9000 Tripod

What is the Slik U9000 Tripod?

The SLIK U9000 is popular the world over with photo enthusiasts and people who just love taking pictures. The 59 inch maximum height means the camera will be at eye-level when the tripod is fully extended, no bending over to see through the camera. A smooth moving “fluid effect” pan head with one handle operation makes moving the positioning the camera quick and simple and there is a nicely sized quick release plate to make attaching the camera to the tripod even faster.

Other features of the SLIK U9000 include speed release lever locks for extending and retracting the legs and retractable metal spikes within the hard rubber foot pads for secure footing on almost any surface. No matter if it’s a high-end point-and shoot, mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (ILC) or light-weight DSLR with kit lens the SLIK U9000 can handle it.
