Slik has introduced the Slik Lite Travel series of tripods – priced from £121.99 – which it says are the first to incorporate an integrated, removable LED torch.

The new Slik Lite Travel tripods boast a built-in torch in their centre column, which can be removed to illuminate your bag when shooting night photography.

The Slik Lite Travel series comprises five models: three made from aluminium and two from lightweight 8-layer carbon fibre.

The aluminium tripods feature four section lever-locking legs while the carbon fibre CF-422 has 4 section twist-locking legs and the CF-522 features 5 section twist-locking legs.

A new Rapid Flip Mechanism lock system allow the new Slik tripods’ legs to invert 180° for more compact storage and portability.

What’s more, all the models in the range offer a gearless, detachable and invertible centre column that separates to convert to a short column for low-angle photography.

All Slik Lite Travel tripods also come with ball and socket head, rubber feet and a tripod carry case.
