Pros & Cons

Pros

Good tripod for the price. Quality feels decent and works well. Returned. Ball head is made of plastic. Not safe for heavy camera. After some investigation, I discovered the head used to be Aluminium but has been changed to plastic. You can’t trust the reviews online because the item has been cheapened. Update. I received a new copy of the tripod. It has metal components again. I am satisfied with the quality of this product.

The head is TRASH! REPLACE IT! Great tripod legs but the head is utter garbage. I would still highly recommend the tripod as it functions okay without a replacement head. All the boxes are checked: stable, lightweight, weight hook, reversible, collapsible, durable. All in all a wonderful set of legs. The head however is a different story. Full plastic locking mechanism that WOBBLES. A tripod head that wobbles imagine that, kinda defeats the purpose. Thankfully the head is standard and can be easily replaced. I would say 100% go for this tripod with a different ball head. Personally the Ulzani tripod ball head I purchased works wonders and at 30$ will not break the bank. I’m a human and i have no incentive to write this review. Leave a helpful if you liked it!

Excellent Choice. At this price point I was unsure of the quality of the tripod but I can say that the K&H concept is an amazing tripod for photography. Here are my pros and cons for this piece of equipment: Pros: - Snap locking legs are the way to go; don't waste your time with twist-to-lock legs. I have been able to set up and take a full panorama picture with my K&F Concept before some friends with twist locking leg tripods have been able to set up and pull off a single shot. It's easy and fast to make any minor adjustments and never slips once tightened. - Rock solid even in winds. Although weight may seem like an initial con, the fact is that this tripod is light enough to carry with you yet heavy enough to sustain moderate to somewhat heavy winds for long exposures. If in extreme heavy winds the tripod includes a mounting hook for sandbags or any weight (including hanging your camera bag). - Fits perfectly with my (also purchased) Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag. https://www.peakdesign.com/everyday-messenger The padded leg of the tripod acts as extra protection for my gear when I slide the tripod into my camera bag. This extra detail has led me to bring this tripod with me more than any other tripod. - The amazing ball head. With the built-in level the K&F Concept ball head is worth the price of admission. It is light yet extremely durable and can handle some pretty intense weight (Nikon d500 with battery pack and 18-35mm in portrait mode) Cons: - Unless mounted with the leveling head facing away from the lens the ball head has some trouble reaching full portrait orientation without changing the heights of the legs. However, the snap locking legs make those adjustments easy to make. Customer Service: Immediate and thorough. Conclusion: At this price point the K&F Concept is the tripod to go for. It’s value is amazing and the support team is fast and reliable. I can’t recommend this enough for newcomers or professionals looking to add a versatile yet affordable piece of kit to their collection. Well done K&H!

This is my favorite Tripod now. I own a huge Manfrotto carbon fiber tripod and am looking for something that's more portable and came across this beautiful thing. I was sold because of the good reviews, the subtle golden details, built in release plate, and ,last but not least, the price. Talking about price, this is three hundreds dollar cheaper than my carbon fiber tripod. Of course, I didn't expect this thing to work as good as the high-end tripod but this thing totally exceed my expectation. I end up using this tripod for everything I does these days, because it is FAST! The quick release plate makes it really easy to mount the my Sony A7II. The metal locking lever is simply a snap away from locking your tripod in place. Stability wise, it handles all my shooting very nicely. It stands well from uneven concrete to dirt-infused hiking trail. As you see in my picture, this thing folds up nicely and basically fit into any adult man size backpack. I totally love this tripod and would definitely buy again to gift my friend.

This tripod is absolutely terrific in every way. This tripod is absolutely terrific in every way! I had purchased another tripod from Amazon prior to this one for about $40, but it was made out of plastic and cheap aluminum and was just awful. I should have sent it back but I thought I could still use it. Well it got knocked over quite easily with my Nikon D5500 on it and it broke at the top plate where the camera screws in. Thank goodness my camera and lens weren't damaged. So I researched for another tripod that didn't cost an arm and a leg, and found this one recommended by several photography bloggers. At only $79.99 this is quite a steal. It is sturdy and well made, and beautiful as well. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.

Great Tripod for Amateur Bird Photography. The media could not be loaded. I bought this tripod for two main reasons: (1) my old "Targus" brand tripod was falling apart, and (2) I wanted less shaky video when shooting with a telephoto lens. I specifically wanted a tripod that would allow me to easily pan in all directions somewhat smoothly. I know that ball heads are not designed to shoot video, but I figured I would give it a shot. This tripod is surprisingly good at delivering smooth video when panning using the ball head. This seems like a no-brainer, but I have also had much less trouble with motion blur when shooting at low shutter speeds (1/30-1/100), and panning is easy enough that I can use the tripod to take pictures of moving subjects without a problem. I have included a video of a Northern Waterthrush hopping around, looking for food, shot with this tripod. I did not use the separate panning feature of this tripod for panning; I only used the ball head. I use a Nikon D3200 with a vintage Nikkor 300mm f4.5 lens. This setup weighs about 4lb. Other than one occasion where one of the legs slipped a little (probably mostly due to me putting some of my weight on it), this tripod holds the weight well. I do not like leaving the camera on the tripod unattended as the ball head has a tendency to loosen up and allow the camera to fall into the downward position. The tripod is solid. The ball tension knob provides pretty good control of the drag on the ball. The flip locks for the legs are quite easy to operate. For me, this tripod was absolutely worth the ~$90 I paid for it. I'm happy!

Cons

one cheap part ruins everything. unfortunately, I only had 2 days in the field with this tripod before one of the knobs (for longitudinal rotation) made of plastic stripped. all the other knobs were made of metal but that one. after it stripped, it fell out half way on a 10 mile hike in the mountains. everything else on the tripod feels well made but now the head mount falls off without that knob to keep it in place.

An great tripod hindered by an awful ball head. It appears at some point in manufacturing the supposed aluminum ball head was replaced with a plastic one, and a very cheap plastic at that. The rest of the tripod is very nice. Clever engineering on the legs to keep them locked for stability. The tripod is light and easy to work with. Unfortunately, a tripod is only as stable as its weakest link, and the ball head is abysmal. If you're using a mirrorless this might work for you, but in no way should you trust your heavy dslr on a low density plastic ball head. It isn't an aluminum tripod if the primary anchor point of the tripod is made of plastic, it's a plastic tripod with aluminum legs.

THIS TRIPOD IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS. I bought this tripod over a year ago and have been having issues with it from the start. I’m a beginner in photography just doing a lot of research to understand the best products to buy and this one came up a lot. I’m not surprised because the overall quality is great. Sturdy, easy to use and not too heavy. Unfortunately about 2 months after I bought it the head started to fall off every so often and I would simply reattach it. Now it’s to the point I can’t reattach it and it’s banged up from so many falls (So many it’s pure luck I haven’t lost the top). I recommend no one get this product, mainly because some issues you can get away with but you can’t get away with the head of the tripod constantly falling off!!! It’s even more unfortunate because now that I’ve had the problem I look at the reviews and see TONS of people complaining about this one thing and there is no response from K&F to acknowledge this huge issue. I’ve always loved k&f and I’ve spent a great deal of my photography budget with them but I will say I won’t be purchasing and item from them again any time soon. I’ve never written a review before but my pure annoyance or this product and lack of brand response has inspired me to do so!

Ball Head is weakest point. Like the customer service. Sadly, it's because I had same issue others did within a week of receiving. Pan friction/lock knob got stripped. They replaced entire unit immediately. Now with second copy, I'm being extra careful with that knob, so it's holding out for now. However, the more I use this tripod, the more I realize the ball head in general is just not up to par. What am I expecting? Avid enthusiast with typical gear tuned to that demographic. Full size DSLR with 18-300 zoom is just too much for this. Not talking about massive expensive glass here. Ball head suffers from an initial creep from desired setting to final position upon tightening, made most evident during telephoto shots. Even then, I've had blurred shots, as I watched the ball head almost imperceptibly slipping during long exposure. Just a bit spongy on the ball grip mechanism, (which takes all the torque I throw at it, unlike the pan knob. ) Legs are great - I love snap locks for speed vs twist. Metal hub that legs are attached to is what convinced me to spend a little more for this item vs competition, and for the weight vs performance, the base unit is just the ticket for a long hike or bike trip through the woods. However, it must be noted, with that same DSLR and consumer grade zoom lens, You'll need to use a remote shutter release. Period. The whole thing jiggles like jello if you touch any part of it with this mere 3 pound camera/lens attached. So - for now, I'll deal with it, as the portability is excellent, I have a heavy pack to hang off hook and a cable shutter release. Will replace ball head soon with an Italian made unit, followed by a matching set of legs eventually. If you're running a very light camera, or need something for flash / lighting systems, this is a very nice little tripod. Sadly, if you want better performance for your hobby equipment, you will really need to spend more. I don't think it can be done for under $100, despite my trying. In closing, I think this is about the best pick for this price range of tripods. Just not up to par performance-wise for my expectations.

Great for travel but with 2 major flaws. Pros: Lightweight Fits in a carry-on bag Fast Set-up/takedown Smooth functioning head Low upright shooting height Accepts standard heads Stable with 2lb.-7oz. camera/lens combo Cons: Vibration Head attachment not secure This small and light tripod has many good points but also has two major design flaws. First the good. The head operates very smoothly and is very easy to use. The lever style leg clamps are my favorite type although time will tell if they will eventually not tighten enough since I did not see any way of adjusting them. The maximum height is just right for my 5’5” height. The lowest height (without inverting camera) is lower than any other tripod I own. Now the bad. At anything but the lowest height the tripod vibrates with any little tap or outside vibration such as walking on the floor. This vibration is visibly noticeable on the legs and can last up to ten seconds. Hanging a weight from the hook makes the problem worse. If you are shooting at high enough speed or in enough light this might not affect you but if you are using this then you probably don’t have those conditions. The second issue is that there is no secondary fastener holding on the head, it just unscrews. My other tripods have set screws so that the head can’t accidentally come off when panning. This happened to me as I was testing the pan function. I thought I was panning but I was actually unscrewing the head. Fortunately I did not go all the way before I realized it. I plan on keeping this since I can work around the flaws and it takes much less time to set up than my other tripods.

Fluid leaking out of Head. Overall I like this tripod for light duty use however the fluid head is leaking the fluid all over the place. This fluid is very sticky and making a big mess on my hands and camera. I have only had it for about two months so I'm passed the return date. I have asked the seller to send me a new head. Let's see if they do.
