The ball-head can then be attached to the monopod, giving you the functionality of a ball-head, as well as the quick release of your camera when required. A Monopod is ideal when maximum manoeuvrability and minimal weight is required, like when moving within crowds, hiking etc. It provides a stable, but mobile platform when shooting.

The full length of Magic-Plate is a Arca-Swiss type design meaning it can be used as a full-size camera mounting plate in most K&F tripods. The large plate size, being larger than a tripods standard plate gives more stability to those larger camera bodies.

The spiral locking knobs are lined with grippy rubber. The clever system does not allow the leg to turn when tightening, so with a quick turn the legs are locked.
