The PRO CF-634 SVH-520 Kits consists of the PRO CF-634 Carbon Fiber Legs and the SVH-520 Oil Fluid Video Head. This lightweight combo is the perfect grab and go set up for the traveling creative.
The SLIK PRO CF-634 weighs just 2 lbs., making it an easy backpacking companion. It extends to a height of 62.6 inches and folds down to a compact 18.7 inches for travel.
The 8-layer carbon fiber legs have 4 sections that quickly deploy and lock using 3 twist locks that are easy to operate with or without gloves. The legs Anti-Rotational System (ARS) is crafted into the leg locks and does not permit individual leg sections to rotate inside each other.
Each leg also has an independent leg-angle lock on the collar. This allows the legs to be set to one of 3 angles, varying the height, stance, and stability of the tripod.
The center column has 4 important features:
- The thread post is reversible so it can be set to 3/8” or ¼ 20” male threads allowing it to work with any type of head without the need for an adapter. It takes less than 2 minutes to change and all tools and instructions are included with the tripod.
- The column can be separated into two sections by simply unscrewing the bottom section. This helps reduce weight when needed but more importantly allows you to set the tripod to the lowest possible position off the ground.
- The column can be reversed so the head can be positioned between the legs instead of on top. This lets you position the camera very close to the ground or provide a straight down view of your subject.
- Integrated, retractable hook at the bottom of the center column to hang your camera bag for increased stability on uneven terrain or windy conditions.
The SVH-520 Fluid Video Head is lightweight and ergonomic weighing only 1.2lbs. Supporting up to 8.8lbs of gear this head is made for video creators, but does not exclude still photographers looking to use it as well. This head offers a fluid pan and tilt movement and is equipped with individual locking mechanisms. The angled pan handle can be positioned for left or right-hand control and rotated a full 360-degrees so the handle's angle is in the best position for any situation. The handle can also be removed to save space.
Not to be excluded, the fluid pan and tilt movements make this head great for those using spotting scopes and binoculars.
The head uses the SLIK quick release system for easy mounting and removal from your camera. The QR plate uses a folding wing-nut to rotate the standard 1/4-20 thread post onto the camera so no tool is need to attach or detach from your camera.
Straight out of the box you will have options for 3/8-16 or 1/4-20 mounting points to screw onto your tripod. The 1/4-20 option will require a simple screw in adapter.
