(From company literature) The new SLIK Pro 613 CF tripod uses space-age carbon fiber material to reduce weight and improve rigidity for a more stable camera support. This model uses three leg sections to fold down to an incredibly small 16.3 inches and weighs a pound and a half making it one of the easiest traveling carbon fiber tripod.
The PRO 613 CF has SLIK Twist-Lock Leg Locks to insure sturdy camera support. The Twist-Lock legs allow the tripod to support up to 6.6 pounds of camera equipment, more than enough to handle a digital SLR. The tripod is an excellent traveler, and the included tripod bag makes carrying The PRO 613 CF more comfortable.
For low angle photography the PRO 613 CF has SLIK multi-angle leg locks that allow the angle of each leg to be positioned individually. Combined with the included short column, this full sized tripod can be lowered to just 4.0 inches from the ground. Another benefit of the multi-angle leg locks is the tripods ability for easy set-up and positioning on uneven ground or steps.
