If you are looking for a simple-to-use but very lightweight tripod that can handle some heavy camera and lens combinations than the SLIK PRO 823CF is for you. This tripod is 40% lighter than aluminum and super tough thanks to the 8-layer Carbon Fiber. When fully extended it reaches a height of over 1.6m and folds down to a compact 600mm. Though lightweight (1.6kgs) it is capable of handling up to 7kgs. Use this tripod with professional camera bodies and/or heavy lenses.
The three leg sections are secured and loosened with twist locks. Because the legs are non-rotating, you can unlock all of a leg’s stages at once by twisting the three large rubber grips with one hand. This enables fast setup.
The rapid center column is removable as well as reversible for extreme low-angle shooting with an inverted camera. At the bottom of the center column is a metal hook for hanging a counterweight for additional stability for uneven loads or for windy conditions.
Head mounting screw
Corresponding to both U1/4 and U3/8 head mounting screws.
3-steps leg angle adjustment
Leg angle adjustable from a high position to a low position.
A.R.S (Anti-Rotation System)
The A.R.S. systems prevent the leg tubes from rotating inside each other making it much easier to lock and release all the twist-release locks securely.
Leg lock system (crown-type) (PAT.)
Twist lock system with double nut ring crown type (PAT.).
The hook at the bottom of the center column
Accessory hook capable of suspending a weight.
Exchangeable leg tips
Leg tips can be exchanged to spike leg tips from rubber leg tips.
"SPIKE SET" is sold separately as an optional.
