PRO 724 CFL
DescriptionThe tripod that back-packers and frequent travelers dream about. Narrower diameter leg tubes yield greater weight reduction. The PRO 724 CFL weights only 3.62 lbs but can reach 62.0 inches when fully extended. The four leg sections mean the tripod retracts to a very small 19.5 inches when closed. This small size is perfect for back-packs and fitting into suitcases. With a maximum capacity of 11 lbs the PRO 724 CF can handle a wide variety of cameras and lenses making a great choice for any photographer that needs to travel light. But should more weight be required this tripod has a hook at the bottom of the center column when extra weight can be hung.
The main features of the new Slik carbon fiber tripods are:
NEW S.R. L (Speed Release leg Locks)
The New series of SLIK carbon fiber tripods are equipped with new proprietary Speed Release Locks for fast easy set-up and pack-up. These fast easy-to-use lever locks are spring-loaded to hold each section of the tripod legs securely but do not snap-back so there is no pitching of fingers while using them.
8X Multi-layered Carbon Fiber
Carbon Fiber material is actually comprised of 8 layers of inter-woven carbon strands that are then bonded together in a sealed, high-pressure furnace. When finished, this material is more than 40% lighter than standard aluminum and very rigid, making it great for applications from space vehicles to tripod legs.
A.R.S (Anti-Rotational System)
All of the New SLIK PRO carbon fiber tripods feature a new A.R.S (Anti-Rotational System) designed into the leg locks. The anti-rotational systems prevent the leg tubes from rotating inside each other making it much easier to lock and release.
Multi-Angle Leg Locks
Each leg has an independent lock that sets in one 3 angles to vary the height and stance of the tripod. The three setting are for maximum height, waist level or low angle photography close to the ground. It also makes it easier to set up the tripod on uneven ground, steps or rocks.
Built-in Short Columns
The center columns unscrew into two pieces to create a much shorter column for use in low angle photography or to reduce weight.
- 3-Position Leg Angle Adjustment
- Speed Release Lever Leg Locks
- Gearless Center Column
