PRO 823 CFL
DescriptionThe PRO 823 CF has three leg sections that when fully extended reach a height of 64.6 inches but when completely retracted the tripod is only 24.4 inches in length. It has a weight of just 3.99 lbs but is capable of handling nearly 18 lbs of properly balanced equipment. This makes the tripod an excellent choice for the location photographer with heavy equipment.
All of the new SLIK PRO carbon fiber tripods feature a new Speed Release Leg Locks and A. R. S. (Anti-rotational System) making this tripod much easier to operate. So the PRO 823 CFL would be usable with the highest number of tripod heads from SLIK and others the tripod has an industry standard 3/8 mount post that is reversible to 1/4-20.
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
- Reversible Head Attachment Screw
