The K&F Professional Photography Tripod with Monopod Feature
This well-built and sturdy photography tripod offers a range of great features at an excellent price. It is packed with high end functionality and the most prominent being the Monopod function. By simply unscrewing a leg from the tripod you now have a handy super-light and portable monopod. The tripod head can then be attached to the monopod which 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.
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 1.5 kilograms it is light yet super sturdy and strong, designed to be used on a daily basis.
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 tripod have 4 stages. They are extended through quick release clips allowing for a quick height adjustment. With the dual stage extendable centre column, a twist lock allows you to further raise the height of your camera to a class leading max height of 170cm. This is what allows such a compact tripod to still achieve such good 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 for that extreme low-level shot also very handy in 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 & compact carry length of only 44cm. Along with its well-padded stylish carry bag and shoulder strap, this all makes it extremely manageable & easy to transport.
