From Kenko Tokina USA:
 
JUNE 2, 2014 – Kenko Tokina USA, Inc. is pleased to announce the new CFL series of SLIK carbon fiber tripods with newly developed S.R.L. Speed Release Locks and several other enhancements for easier use. The 6 tripods in this series cover the range from compact feather-weight tripods for back-packing to larger tripods for use on location with heavier equipment.
 
The main features of the new Slik carbon fiber tripods are:
 
NEW S.R. L (Speed Release leg Locks)
The New series of SLIK carbon fiber tripods are equipped with new proprietary Speed Release Locks for fast easy set-up and pack-up. These fast easy-to-use lever locks are spring-loaded to hold each section of the tripod legs securely but do not snap-back so there is no pitching of fingers while using them.
 
8X Multi-layered Carbon Fiber
Carbon Fiber material is actually comprised of 8 layers of inter-woven carbon strands that are then bonded together in a sealed, high-pressure furnace. When finished, this material is more than 40% lighter than standard aluminum and very rigid, making it great for applications from space vehicles to tripod legs.
 
A.R.S (Anti-Rotational System)
All of the New SLIK PRO carbon fiber tripods feature a new A.R.S (Anti-Rotational System) designed into the leg locks. The anti-rotational systems prevent the leg tubes from rotating inside each other making it much easier to lock and release.
 
Multi-Angle Leg Locks
Each leg has an independent lock that sets in one 3 angles to vary the height and stance of the tripod. The three setting are for maximum height, waist level or low angle photography close to the ground. It also makes it easier to set up the tripod on uneven ground, steps or rocks.
 
Built-in Short Columns
The center columns unscrew into two pieces to create a much shorter column for use in low angle photography or to reduce weight.
 
New Slik CFL models:
 
PRO 624 CFL, PRO 634 CFL, PRO 723 CFL, PRO 724 CFL, PRO 823 CFL, PRO 824 CFL

SLIK SHB-808 Ball Head
From SLIK:
 
The SLIK SHB-808 has the strong, sturdy, and easy to use underpinnings of the original PRO Ball Head 800 but ads new features such as panoramic markings so it’s now much easier to take multiple pictures and stitch them together later to form long, continuous panorama photos. To assist in this SLIK has added a separate pan lock knob to the SHB-808 so that the cameras can be turned (panned) horizontally without loosening he ball that is locking the camera in place. This makes perfectly level panning a breeze.
 
Using the same quick release system as the PRO 700 DX tripod head, the Ball Head 800 has one of the fasted and easiest quick release plates in the industry. SLIK made a circular quick release plate that can secure the camera to the tripod pointing in any direction, making attaching your camera (once the SLIK quick release plate is attached) more intuitive than most other heads that have squared off or angled plates. Tension on the lock for the circular quick release plate is adjustable.
 
Precision machining, polishing of all moving parts and an over-sized, easy grip release knob for fine tension adjustments combine for smooth accurate operation.
