MY 6 WEEKS REVIEW ..SO FAR SO GOOD #SLIKTRIPODS
So a good few weeks ago a company called INTRO2020
asked me to put there new product through its paces they are the united kingdoms
SLIK distributer of there new carbon filbre tripod range
The SLIK PRO CF-834 has four leg sections that when fully extended reach a height of over 1.6m but when completely retracted the tripod is just 480mm in length. It has a weight of just 1.65kgs but is capable of handling 7kgs of properly balanced equipment. So the SLIK PRO CF-834 would be usable with the highest number of tripod heads from SLIK and others the tripod has an industry standard 3/8 mount post that is reversible to 1/4-20.
The 800 series carbon fiber tripods all have legs made up of carbon Fiber material that is actually 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 legs also feature A.R.S (Anti-Rotational System) is designed into the leg locks and do not allow the individual legs sections to rotate inside each other. Each leg also has an independent lock that sets in one 3 angles to vary the height and stance of the tripod. The three setting are for maximum height, waist level or low angle photography close to the ground.
The four leg sections are secured and loosened with twist locks. Because the legs are non-rotating, 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.
so thats the specs how did i get on with it well using the tripod with the PBH-635AS
Ball head with arca swiss head the tripod really does handle the terrain really well seascapes on boggy sand the wet ground of the yorkshire moors for a light tripod that packs loads of stability i would say its a no brainer. the twist locks and the legs are really well built as is the quality of the ball head. I use the old nikon d810 24-70mm
or the 70-200mm and i find it handles in a way a pro tripod should. turn the ball head to the side and it handles the weight of 3000g without fault see my you tube vlog below. if you look on the clip below fully extended it a good size and thats with out the centre column raised,the centre column comes with a handy hook for waying down the tripod or hanging your bag from. I like the way that when you unbolt the feet rubbers any water collected in the legs Simply drains away would i use my hard earned cash to buy this tripod and would i recommend yes i would its a well build light to cary tripod but really stable
thank you mark
