This is a huge upgrade from my old tripod. It's very versatile! Perfect for my needs as an amateur photographer. All moving parts are smooth and solid. I haven't tested it's capability to hold heavy cameras, as I only have a Sony a6300, but I feel it can take anything. I plan on taking this when I travel and it's compact enough to fit in a carry-on. It's definitely not the lightest tripod to fly with, but I can deal with that as I travel fairly light and minimally anyway.I will say that as perfect as the tripod currently is for me, it may vary for you. After reading a few bad reviews, I'll assume quality control isn't the best. And I can confirm that, as this is my second (replacement) tripod. My first had a badly machined baseplate for the pan/ball head. It practically made 360 panning useless since it was crooked. Also, the middle pan/ball of the main shaft felt rigid and grainy compared to the main head up top.Since I was beginning to like the tripod aside from its defects, I decided to contact the seller to see if I can get some replacement parts, rather than ask for a refund/return outright. And the seller was more than helpful! They gave me a whole new tripod, and I didn't even have to return the defective one! Customer Service is great to say the least.I have not used a professional tripod so I have no base of comparison to say this is better or not. But overall, I really like this tripod and hope it'll last.
I've been using this tripod for some time now.... And I can say this is the best tripod I've used! As a professional videographer, I am constantly filming. As a YouTube content creator, I am constantly filming. So there is always a camera either in my hand in in arms reach. And having a camera that close means there is always a tripod right next to it. And sense receiving this this K & F concept tripod.... this has been my go too.I first came across this on my search after yet another competitors tripod broke one me. As I scrolled through Amazon I saw something... something so original I literally said "WOW" out loud. I have never seen a portable tripod... with overhead shooting capabilities! You need that over head shot... You don't want to buy a big, bulks, HEAVY, expensive C-Stand. Or build some crazy rig that you need to attach to your ceiling or home made rig.... Then this is for you!The telescoping section of this tripod is amazing. I've used it to get so many great shots sense I pulled it out of the packaging. In addition to the over head shooting capabilities, with the top section telescoped out you can utilize several points of adjustment and get angles you were never able to previously get. Shot such s flipping the center poll upside down, and getting the super low, while also adjusting out the arm and getting the reach you need.The main ball head is fluid, so you can get some nice smooth pan shots. Slide out that arm once again, utilize that second fluid head, and you get smooth pan and tilt shots at once from a tripod! Every time I go out to shoot, I'm finding new ways to utilize this tripod. Is's got a lot of tricks up it's sleeve. And I'm excited to see what it can do next. K & F Concepts, well done
First one was faulty, seller replaced with a new one which seems to be fine, great service and correspondence. Very robust and well designed, especially the monopod and the solid feel to the whole thing. Then the legs lock either out , up or down they stay in position, and the fact it can be used on uneven ground is an added bonus especially for landscape works.
The product is as advertized: sturdy, versatile, and easy to use. However, the instructions, such as they are, suck. They were translated from Chinese, apparently by a Chinese person who doesn't know his English very well. They are almost impossible to comprehend, and therefore pretty much useless. Fortunately, it's fairly easy to figure out how the equipment works. There was one item that came with the tripod that has no description or instructions for it. It is a wooden extension of some sort. I think it is to be used with the monopod, but the instructions are very ambiguous and badly translated, so I gave up trying to figure out anything from them. Bottom line, I think the tripod, the ball head, and all the components are top notch and worth the price, but don't expect much help on using it from the user's manual.
Love the tripod, the multiple angles I can use with it and ease of this. I also had an small issue with the one I received (which could have just been damaged in shipping or something), and even though it was out of warranty through Amazon, the manufacturer sent me an entirely new tripod to fix the issues.
For the price, this tripod is amazing. Although, the top arm could have been longer. It would help a lot more when shooting table top videos. Also, in terms of durability I am a little skeptical. I will follow up in a couple months when I actually start using it on a daily basis. Other than that I think it is pretty good.
