An extremely compact carbon fiber tripod, the Slik PRO CF-635 is for those who don't need a full size tripod, but want something to hold the camera still in a variety of situations. The SLIK PRO CF-635 has five short leg sections extending to 51.5 inches and folding down to 14.6 inches for carrying and storage. Most noteworthy, the SLIK PRO CF-635 weighs only 1.9 lbs, but supports loads up to 6.6 lb, making it a great travel choice in situations where a full-sized tripod would not be needed or convenient to carry.
All 600 series carbon fiber tripods have legs made up of carbon fiber material that is comprised of 8 layers of inter-woven carbon strands that are then bonded together in a sealed, high-pressure furnace, producing strong, light-weight carbon fiber. The leg Anti-Rotational System (ARS) is crafted into the leg locks and does not allow individual leg sections to rotate inside each other. Each leg also has an independent lock that sets in one of 3 angles to vary the height and stance of the tripod. The three settings are for maximum height, waist level or low angle photography.
The four leg sections are secured and loosened with twist locks. Because the legs do not rotate, 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.
