Carbon Fiber LITE CF-422 Travel Tripod (Discontinued)
Imaging throwing everything you might need for a shoot on your back and hiking for hours to get to the perfect spot to take a photo. Or maybe you do that already and know how it feels. Now throw a tripod on top of all that. Think it’s going to weight you down? Not if it's a LITE series tripod from Slik. The LITE series are some of the lightest-weight tripods around. The two tallest of the series reach eye level while remaining under 2 and a half pounds and the smaller models are even lighter!
The SLIK LITE series tripods have an integrated, removable LED flashlight in the center column. Use the flashlight to see inside your camera bag while shooting at night or remove it to light your path. Invert the legs 180° for more compact storage and transportation thanks to the new Rapid Flip Mechanisms.
The CF-422 the tripod kit that backpackers dream about. Its less than 19 inches long when fully retracted making it easy to stow in a carry-on or backpack. Though compact, it’s a full-size tripod reaching over 70 inches when fully extended. Lightweight carbon fiber makes this travel tripod less than 2.5 lbs with head while maintaining a superior weight to load ratio. The CF-422 has a smooth moving SBH-180DS ball head with Arca Swiss compatible quick release.
