DESCRIPTION SPECIFICATIONS

SLIK designers carefully examined the trends in compact digital cameras and the needs of those owners then created a new tripod from the ground up. The SLIK SPRINT PRO has the features that are required of a full sized tripod, a maximum height of 64 inches reaches eye level yet the SPRINT PRO folds to an impressively compact 18.9 inches and weighs in at just 31.4 ounces (a fraction less than 2 pounds) for easy travel.

The emphasis on the SPRINT PRO is ease of use. Any tripod should be easy to use, so that more time is spent concentrating on the subject and enjoying photography, than stressing about the equipment. This tripod makes setting up simple and secure with fast, easy to use SLIK speed release leg locks, gearless center column for quick height adjustments, and 3 position adjustable angle legs for easy set up on uneven ground or steps.

The adjustable legs angles can also be used to lower the tripod. When used with the built-in short center column, (the included center column unscrews into two pieces) the camera is just 6.4 inches off the ground for extremely low angle or macro photography out in the field. Another way to get the camera low is to reverse the center column which could be used for macro photography or copy work.

SLIK even designed a new head for the SPRINT series. This ball head features a precision milled aluminum ball for smooth reliable camera movements. This head can easily handle a camera up to 4.5 pounds* in weight.

The SLIK SPRINT PRO is available in either Silver Metallic 611-841 or near Black SLIK Gun Metallic 611-840.

DESCRIPTION SPECIFICATIONS

The NEW SLIK SPRINT PRO Black tripod uses the light-weight SPRINT PRO legs in black color, with padded leg wraps for easy carrying and more comfortable handling in cold weather.

Based on the successful SPRINT PRO travel tripod, the SLIK SPRINT PRO Black has the features that are required of a full sized tripod, a maximum height of 64 inches reaches eye level yet the SPRINT PRO folds to an impressively compact 18.9 inches and weighs in at just 38 ounces allowing it to fit in a 22 in. carry-on suitcase for easy travel.

The emphasis on the SPRINT PRO Black is portability and ease of use. Any tripod should be easy to use, so that more time is spent concentrating on the subject and enjoying photography. This tripod makes setting up simple and secure with fast, easy to use SLIK speed release leg locks, gearless center column for quick height adjustments, and 3 position adjustable angle legs for easy set up on uneven ground or steps. The SPRINT PRO Black center column is actually two threaded pieces that unscrew to convert the top piece to a short column. This combined with the adjustable leg angle locks allows the tripod to be lowered to just under 8 inches for very low angle or macro photography in the field.

The SBH-100 Compact ball head can handle 4.4 lbs making it perfect for light-weight digital SLR cameras and advanced, full-featured point and shoot digital cameras.
