The SLIK LiTE CF-522 has an integrated, removable LED flashlight in the center column. Use the flashlight to see inside your camera bag while shooting at night or remove it to light your path. Invert the legs 180° for more compact storage and transportation thanks to the new Rapid Flip Mechanisms. 

The LiTE CF-522 is 370mm long when fully retracted making it easy to stow in a carry-on, suitcase or backpack. Though compact, it extends to a full-size tripod reaching over 1,400mm when fully extended. Lightweight carbon fiber makes this travel tripod slight more than 1.0kg while maintaining a superior weight to load ratio. 

The tripod also features a gearless, detachable and invertible center column that converts to a short column for low angle photography.
