The Slik Sprint Pro EZ Tripod (Aluminum) with Multi-Action Pan Head, as part of the Sprint series tripods, has been designed as the lightweight solution for the traveling photographer, weighing in at 2.82 lb (1.28 kg) including the pan head. It will support a maximum load of 4.5 lb (2 kg), the average SLR film or digital camera setup. The Sprint Pro EZ extends to a maximum operating height of 64.4" (16.4cm) and collapses down to a mere 19" (48.5cm) for convenient transportation. It also has neoprene grips for handling at any temperature, speed release leg locks and a gearless center column for quick height adjustments.
The included Slik SH-707E multi-action pan head has nearly a pound of finely cast and precisely machined aluminum. The single handle operation has just one control for both pan and tilt movements. These directions of movement make the head an ideal choice for long telephoto lenses like the 300mm f/2.8, 400mm f/5.6, 500mm f/4.5 or spotting scopes. The tension of movement can be adjusted by turning the release lever slightly to match the weight of the camera and lens being used.
The SH-707E also uses a fast and easy-to-use quick-release plate to securely mount your equipment to the tripod. The mount for the quick-release can rotate 360° and be locked down facing in any direction. Additionally, the SH-707E can be removed from the tripod so you can use a favorite head you already have or heads of a different style or purpose.
Decades of experience and a wealth of accumulated photographic knowledge, combined with state-of-the-art engineering, have been instrumental in helping Slik create tripods that are amazingly light, yet offer remarkable strength and stability.
