This is the Kingjoy A85 – a high-end professional quality tripod which is ideally suited to landscape work.
Made from carbon fibre and aviation grade alloy, this tripod is built like a tank yet is light enough to carry up hills and mountains. One of the three legs has a comfortable foam hand grip which makes carrying the tripod easier, especially in cold conditions. 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 (included). An optional centre column is available to extend the maximum height (sold separately). There is a hook on the base of the centre plate for attaching balast to improve stability in windy conditions. With only 3 leg sections, the set up time for this tripod (to full height) is very rapid, ensuring you successfully capture those moments of fleeting light.
Comes with a levelling plate for compatible centre columns and a set of 4cm spiked metal feet.
