A tripod with a centre column so versatile it might be the last tripod you buy.

This feature rich tripod has become our most popular model. It is incredibly versatile as it is packed with high end functionality. It can be used like any other photography tripod you may be used to. While also having the ability to transform the centre column into a horizontal shooting arm. This gives you the ability to shoot straight down for overhead or top-down photography. That perfect top-down shot for food, product, and macro photography just got a whole lot easier. It can also be very helpful when working over a table top as you can get the camera much closer to the subject and are no longer limited by the legs and the table edge. Once you have this function you will wander how you ever managed without it. It still has one more trick up its sleeve, it can also be used as a monopod.

Many photographers avoid using a tripod as they find it cumbersome, heavy and a handful to manage. This photography tripod is an absolute pleasure to use and is designed to make your shooting experience a joy. At only 1.8 kilograms it is light yet super sturdy and strong, designed to be used on a daily basis. With a huge range of setup configurations this tripod can be positioned as high as 187cm or as low as the floor.

Lending a hand with its horizontal arm.

Most tripods have a centre column, as it allows for extra working height. Some tripods even have 2 stages for additional reach. This tripod is special. The centre column has the ability to pull up and pivot over to it goes horizontal. It does this with an amazing ball joint that needs no disassembly or fiddling to achieve. A horizontal arm allows for a wide range of different ways the tripod can be used as well as opening up many photography genres. K&F have a great range of tripods for photographers of all genres. This tripod really excels when you want to capture food photography, product photography and macro photography. Using the K&F Pro-Arm allows you to shoot top down work as you can get over head of your subject. Or you can go really low by inverting the centre column, but the arm means your camera can still be used in an upright position. It also is useful for table to work where the table edge prevents the camera getting any closer to the subject. This arm can extend the camera past the edge and closer to where you want to shoot from. Some photographers like to use the arm to move their camera off to the side so they working away from the tower of tripod legs. The choice is yours and the number of variations is astounding.

Another prominent feature is the Monopod function. By simply unscrewing a leg from the tripod you now have a handy super-light and portable monopod. The tripod centre column can then be attached to the monopod which will give 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 is required, like moving within crowds. It assists in stability when shooting which allows for lower shutter speed on long focal length lenses. A monopod also helps to relieve the weight of larger heavy lenses.

This photo tripod is supplied with a solid 28mm ball head machined from aluminium alloy and anodized in K&F’s beautiful signature orange. A ball head is great when you are required to frame up a shot quickly, you can free the head, make the adjustments and then lock your cameras in that position with little effort. This ball head can handle an impressive 10kg camera load which is more than most camera setups weigh. The head has a beautiful fluid-head action making for a smooth 360-degree pan for those beautiful panoramic shots. With handy degree markings on the head allowing for an accurate pan, good for landscape photography. The built-in spirit level on the ball head will quickly help with getting your camera perfectly horizontal when required.

As an added bonus, your K&F Photo Tripod comes with an extra quick release base plate, yes 2x Camera Plates. This is really handy if shooting with multiple camera bodies or wanting to mount a light on your tripod, or simply just having a spare camera plate in your K&F camera bag can save your day. The base plate can slide forwards or backwards to assist with better camera balance, however the plate is designed so that it cannot slide completely out protecting your camera from falling.

The aluminium alloy legs of the K&F photography tripods have 4 stages. They are extended through the sturdy twist lock system allowing for a quick and secure height adjustment. The clever system does not allow the leg to turn when tightening, so with a few quick turns the legs are locked. The dual stage extendable centre column allows you to further raise the height of your camera to a class leading 187cm. This is what allows such a compact tripod to still achieve such exceptional height. The legs open out to give you a well-supported and stable shooting platform. The push clip at the top of the leg allows for a quick adjustment, choosing between 3 adjustable footprint settings. The legs also have the ability to open wide which allows the camera to get those very-low, close to the ground shots. This function comes in handy when shooting landscapes with low foreground or a reflection in a pond. Another brilliant feature of this tripod is you can invert the centre column to get the camera millimetres off the ground. Especially useful for that extreme low-level style shot and when shooting macro photography. At the base of the column is a hook which you can attach a sandbag, to keep your gear safe in windy or unstable conditions. This is also a great trick to stabilise your tripod even further. With all these features and the ability to extend to a good height, it is still able to fold down to a very manageable and compact carry length of only 48cm. Along with its well-padded stylish carry bag and shoulder strap, this all makes it extremely manageable and easy to transport.
