The Slik PRO CF-734 is a full-size tripod extending to a height 65 inches and folding down to a compact 18.7 inches. Though lightweight, 3.0 lbs, the CF-734 handles up to 11 lbs. This makes it a great hiking and backpacking tripod for mirrorless or professional camera body and long lens combinations.
All 700 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 permit 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.
