(From company literature) The SLIK Pro 883 CF-D tripod uses space-age carbon fiber material to reduce weight and improve rigidity for a more stable camera support. The use of carbon fiber leg tubing reduces the weight of the full sized tripod to just 4.4 pounds. This model uses D shaped carbon fiber tubing to prevent to legs from turning when setting-up or folding down.

The PRO 883 CF-D has SLIK Speed-release Leg Locks. Instead of using a twist lock, the Speed-release lock has a one-lever operation that makes setting-up and folding down very fast and easy. The tripod is an excellent traveler, and the included padded to make carrying The PRO 883 CF-D more comfortable.

The PRO 883 CF-D maximum height reaches eye level without raising the center column. For low angle photography the PRO 883 CF-D has SLIK multi-angle leg locks that allow the angle of each leg to be positioned individually. Combined with the installed short column, this full sized tripod can be lowered to just 8.6 inches from the ground. Another benefit of the multi-angle leg locks the tripods ability for easy set-up and positioning on uneven ground or steps.

An accessory extended column for the PRO 883 CF-D is available to give the tripod an extra 11 inches (280mm) to bring the maximum height to 66 inches.
