The new Slik COMPACT II tripod is the successor to the popular and long-lasting Compact-XL tripod.

The COMPACT II has improved ease of use by adding Slik Speed-Release leg locks which are faster and easier to operate than the traditional twist-lock legs. Also there is a bubble-level at the top of the center column to help level the camera for the perfect shot.
