Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
Slik designers carefully examined the trends in compact digital cameras and the needs of those owners. Then they created a new tripod from the ground up. The Slik Sprint Pro has the features that are required of a full-sized tripod. A maximum height of 64 inches reaches eye level, yet the Sprint Pro folds to an impressively compact 18.9 inches and weighs in at just 31.4 ounces (a fraction less than 2 pounds) for easy travel.
The emphasis with the Sprint Pro is on ease of use. Any tripod should be easy to use, so that more time is spent concentrating on the subject and enjoying photography, than stressing about the equipment. This tripod makes setting up simple and secure with fast, easy to use Slik speed-release leg locks, gearless center column for quick height adjustments, and 3 position adjustable angle legs for easy set-up on uneven ground or steps.
The adjustable leg angles can also be used to lower the tripod. When used with the built-in short center column (the included center column unscrews into two pieces), the camera is just 6.4 inches off the ground for extremely low-angle or macro photography out in the field. Another way to get the camera low is to reverse the center column which could be used for macro photography or copy work.
Slik even designed a new head for the Sprint series. This ball head features a precision-milled aluminum ball for smooth reliable camera movements. This head can easily handle a camera up to 4.5 pounds in weight.
The Slik Sprint Pro is available in either Silver or Gun Metal Black.
