SLIK Vari CF 700 Series Carbon Fiber Tripods

The new VARI series carbon fiber tripod professional kits are ideal for both Hybrid Still and Video photographers.

SLIK introduces the new VARI series carbon fiber tripod professional kits for Hybrid Still and Video photographers.

The new VARI series carbon fiber tripods introduce the tool-free Rapid Column Exchange system to quickly convert from a traditional center column set-up, to a flat plate for low angle work and a lighter package, to a video bowl mount for quick horizon adjustments. In matter of seconds the tripod converts to one of three specific needs by using the simple to operate, tool-free release mechanism. This makes it the perfect tripod for those that want one tripod to cover every situation.

The new carbon fiber series offers two models: the CF-703 with 3 leg sections and a folded height of 22.6 inches and the CF-704 with 4 leg sections and a folded height of 18.7 inches when using the flat plate.

The Professional Kit includes:

  • VARI CF-704 or CF-703 carbon fiber legs
  • Carbon Fiber Center Column
  • Flat Base Plate
  • Video Bowl Mount
  • (3) Standard diamond shaped rubber feet for everyday shooting
  • (3) Spiked Feet for soft natural surfaces and ice
  • (3) 50mm Flat Rubber Feet for hard flat surfaces
  • Stainless steel hook to increase stability
  • Carrying case

The newly designed 25mm diamond-pattern carbon fiber tubes and precision milled aluminum body provides a lightweight system with maximum strength and durability. Weighing in as little as 2.4 lbs while supporting 17.6 lbs.

Additional features include a bubble level on the body for quick level set up, an accessory port for extension arms that hold monitors, tablets, or other photographic accessories, and a new leg angle lock mechanism for fast adjustment to 3 stable leg angle positions.
