Product Highlights
  • 64.1" Maximum Height

  • Lightweight Carbon Fiber
  • Weighs Only 3.5 lb
  • Compact 18.8" Folded Length
  • Reversible Column for Low-Angle Shooting

The Slik Pro 824 CF 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod is a beefy photography tripod that supports enough weight (up to 18 lb) to be used with a video head and a camcorder. As for still cameras, the Pro 824 CF is suitable for use with almost any head paired with a medium or large format camera or a DSLR with a zoom or long telephoto lens. The 824 Pro reaches a maximum height of 64.1" and weighs 3.5 lb.

The four leg sections are secured and freed by way of 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 of the Pro 824 CF tripod.

The rapid center column is removable as well as reversible for extreme low-angle shooting with an inverted camera. At the bottom of the center column is a metal hook for hanging a counterweight for additional stability for uneven loads or for windy conditions.

      Comments about Slik Pro 824 CF 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod:

      I love tripods for some odd reason, but think that most of them are overpriced. I have no complaints about the quality of the 824 and have found the thicker legs very steady, especially when compared with some lighter weight models, even those by higher priced companies. I would buy this product again.

        Good tripod, I am using this for both my DSLR and a Sony NX5U camcorder. This tripod is strong enough to support both, and still relatively light for back packing. Great versatility and easy to use!

          Comments about Slik Pro 824 CF 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod:

          I needed a smaller, lightweight tripod to stuff into or attach to a backpack for going into the woods. Searched for one that is tall enough for me at 6'2" but still compact enough to travel lightly. It works great for this (also great for roadside pics too). It is solid with a 70-200 2.8 lens, but wouldn't recommend it for a bigger setup. Beneficial that it has the hook for adding some weight in windy conditions to eliminate shake. As with any tripod I've owned, it is a good idea to loc-tite the footings, they always seem to unscrew themselves and are expensive to replace.

          Wouldn't have given 5 stars it was just a little shorter when folded.

            This tripod is very stable, solid, but very light. I use it for canon 500mm f/4 is usm and canon 1D Mark IV. It also comes with a transport bag.
