Tripods can be made of metals like steel or aluminium, as well as carbon fibre. Carbon fibre is a polymer material that is also known as graphite fibre. It is a tough but lightweight material. Carbon fibre is five times stronger than steel but much lighter.
Carbon fibre tripods are stiffer, lighter, more weather/corrosion/scratch resistant, and overall stronger than aluminium tripods. They also look and feel better.
Aluminium tripods are more stable (due to their increased weight) and frequently cost less than half the price of an equivalent carbon fibre tripod. A tripod aids in keeping the camera steady while taking pictures.
The Global Carbon fiber camera tripod market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
Slik introduces new carbon fibre tripod legs and two ball-heads. Slik has introduced a new line of carbon fibre tripod legs as well as two new ball heads. All models in the PRO CF series have 8-layer carbon fibre legs that are bonded and sealed in a high-pressure furnace for low weight, toughness, and rigidity.
According to Slik, the heavy construction makes them ideal for professional photographers who work with large DSLRs and long tele lenses, as well as large and medium format cameras.Customers can select between four and five-section telescopic legs, as well as three leg diameters.
The PRO CF-635 tripod legs are at the lightweight and compact end of the spectrum, measuring only 37 cm when folded but extending to 159cm and holding a 3kg load.
The PRO CF-834 has the longest legs in the range, measuring 48 cm when folded. The maximum extended height of 165cm is not significantly greater than that of the CF-635, but the maximum load of 7kg is more than double.
Two new ball-heads (PBH-535AS and PBH-635AS) are designed to work with the new PRO CF tripod legs and include the new ‘Cam-Lock’ quick-release system, which is compatible with Arca-Swiss and allows them to attach or detach a camera from the head without sliding the plate in or out of the groove.
The heads have three separate knobs for locking, panning, and friction control, and they can accommodate large cameras and lenses weighing up to 5kg and 6kg, respectively.
