This Kingjoy A83 is a high-end professional quality lightweight travel tripod. Made from carbon fibre, it comes with a removable centre column, carry case, and compact ball head (optional). One of the three legs has a comfortable hand grip which makes carrying the tripod easier, especially in cold conditions. This leg also unscrews and attaches to the removable centre column to form a monopod or walking pole with comfortable grip. Each leg section is extended with a twist lock grip joint which is weather sealed to prevent dust and sand from entering the thread. It comes with removable rubber feet which can be unscrewed and replaced with metal spikes. There is a hook on the base of the centre column for attaching accessories. The tripod inverts on itself to from a compact travel mode which easily fits into most bags or suitcases for practical travel. Despite its lightweight and compact design, this tripod still provides outstanding sturdiness for even the heaviest of digital cameras.
Included – 4cm stainless steel spikes, carry case, tool for maintenance.
