Light Weight and Sturdy CF Tripod
As a professional photographer, a good tripod is a must. I've mostly used a Velbon Sherpa 200R which is quiet heavy, so the K&F TC2534 is a great light weight alternative. The CF (carbon fiber) legs have minimal flex and slide out smoothly with gravity and centrifugal force. The metal threaded twist locks secure them with a single turn of the wrist, and are easy to grip with/without gloves. The foam cover on the leg helps with grip and insulates my hands in cold temperatures. Even the CF is less cold than metal.At the top of the legs are thumb lever locks that allow them to quickly be angled at 25, 45, 75, and up to 180 degrees to be upside down or inverted for a compact storage height of 18". The whole tripod takes about 20 seconds to open and 14 to close.The 35mm ball head is solid metal and allows the camera to point in any direction. It's attached to the column with 3/8" screw and can be swapped with different ballheads. There is a pan knob that allows for smooth panning, and has degrees written around it. The largest knob locks the ballhead. The tension is strong enough for a Nikon D7000 and 70-200mm 2.8 (about 5lb), or canon 5D+70-200mm. A bigger lens combo should sit fine on the top if level, but might lose position if tilted. It's rated for up to 16lb.The quick release plate is metal with rubber grip that doesn't slip on the camera. It's nice and small measuring 8x48x50mm. Another great feature is it will not slide out unless fully loosened.The center column has a tall 12.7" CF column, or a short 3.5" metal column. Either can be used individually (the short one allows the tripod to reach a minimum height of 11"). The center column adjusts with a twist lock like the legs, but does not rotate itself. At the bottom of it is a spring hook for hanging weight. This part can unscrew and the center column can be pulled out and combined with a detachable leg to create a 20-68" monopod. The only flaw I found with this design is that in order to connect the center column to the leg, you need to either carry the included 3/8" screw that connects them, or keep it in the bottom of the center column which replaces the weight hook. I wish the screw was built into the tripod leg.Included with the tripod is a rugged padded nylon zipper bag. The zippers are thick. On the bag is a reflective strip for showing up in headlights at night, and there is a detachable shoulder strap. Well made. Also included: ballhead cover, lens cloth, allen key, 3/8" screw, manual.CONCLUSIONThe only thing I would change is put the 3/8" screw in the leg for easier conversion to monopod. And foam jackets on all legs. Also would love to see this in a 3 section version (faster to open). The most important thing is the tripod is sturdy, and dampens vibrations well. With some tripods, the DSLR mirror flap transmits blur to photos during 1 - 1/10s exposures, but this does not have that problem. As long as I use shutter delay, or remote, I can take long exposures at 300mm without any blur. Overall it's great and has worked well in all kinds of situations. 4.5 stars. Sample provided for testing and review.PROS- Small. Light weight. Photos are sharp with it. Several height options and functions, monopod. Rubber feet can be unscrewed and replaced. Materials are 99% carbon fibre, metal, or rubber.CONS- Monopod transformation is tedious, putting the 3/8" screw in the leg would have been better. Only 1 leg has foam grip. Center column is a bit jerky when adjusting.MEASUREMENTS- Tripod: 18" - 65".

Well Made Flexible Tripod
From the moment you open the box, everything about this tripod reflects quality.The carry bag is padded and made of ripstop nylon and has both a carry handle and strap. Opening the zipper reveals black tripod legs with gold accents and a velvet bag covered ball head.Taking the tripod out of the bag you immediately get a sense of opulence, whether you're a beginner or a pro, this tripod makes you feel like a professional.The legs of the tripod fold backward onto the center stem and ball head. This allows the tripod to fold down to to a compact size under 19 inches (48cm) yet expand to almost 67 inches (170 cm) when fully extended.Each leg on the tripod ratchets into position and has three locking points allowing your to articulate and adjust the legs to balance on almost any terrain. There are three (3) telescopic sections on each leg and they have a twist lock to secure each section in place.The ball head that comes with the the tripod is all metal construction and very well built, Ball heads are best suited for still photography but can be used for video also. If you do want to change the ball head on this tripod you can, the tripod has a standard 3/8' screw on the center stem which will allow you to attach any professional tripod head you want, although for most users the factory ball head will be all you need.The factory K&F ball head that comes with this tripod comes with a sliding quick release mounting plate which attaches to your camera and then slides onto the mount and is secured tightly in place by a side set screw. There is a small 360 degree ball level on the tripod head which is pretty accurate and showed level along with the onscreen horizon level on my Panasonic G6.The ball level has two adjustment screws. The lower smaller screw controls the pan or side to side horizontal movement of the head. The larger side screw controls the tightness of the ball which will tilt, swivel and also pan.The tension on the ball head is quite precise and can be adjusted to lock your camera head completely or just backed off a little to allow smooth movements up and down.With the top tilt/swivel adjusted to the angle or tension you want the lower pan screw allows you to lock or loosen the horizontal pan adjustment to your liking.One other feature of this tripod that you might find useful is the ability to remove the legs and covert the tripod into a monopod. Personally I have a dedicated monopod so I didn't use this feature however if you're only going to buy one tripod - this one is excellent since it will let you convert it back and forth from tripod to monopod.Overall K&F knocked it out of the park with this tripod. It's solid, well made and an exceptional value under $250.I received a sample product from the manufacturer for testing and unbiased evaluation. I always take the cost of the product into consideration when writing a review.
Last tripod you'll ever buy!
Wow! I don't know what else you could want in a tripod. I have seen similar tripods priced at $700-$1000, but I can't imagine how much better they could be. I know this seems pricey at $224, but once you see the build quality and features, you will agree that it is worth every penny!Upon opening the box, I was very impressed with the aesthetically pleasing look and feel of the tripod. It also comes with a top notch carrying case, complete with shoulder strap and rugged zipper. Speaking of carrying cases, it matches up perfectly with this backpack from K&F which I also love (Professional Backpack for DSLR Camera & Laptops Fits on Tripods Large Size).As far as the size and usability, there is nothing that they left out. Each leg has three twist lock adjustments which take this from 18.5' to 67' and every size in between. No matter what the terrain, you will be able to adjust this tripod for a stable shot. It also includes a spring loaded hook on the centre pole where you can hang your bag or a weight to further stabilize the tripod. Again, they thought of everything.The fully rotating and removable mount (complete with 360º level) also leaves nothing to be desired. There are three adjustments on it allowing you a full range of motion and the ability to place your camera in any position you could possibly think of. It also comes with a nice velvet/velour carry bag to keep it safe during transport or if you decide to swap it out for another mount. Finally, as far as weight, the carbon fibre makes this equally light and strong. You certainly won't break it or your back carrying it around.Recommended buy!Overall, I am very impressed with this tripod. I couldn't ask for anything more. I will finally be able to retire my ancient aluminum tripod (which owes me nothing) and use this one for many years to come. If you are in the market for a high quality tripod at a reasonable price, look no further. This will definitely satisfy your needs and help you look like a pro while using it! I was contacted by the company and asked to test this product at a reduced price. Once completed, I gave the above review based on my findings.
Lightweight and easy to set up and use
Well constructed tripod.
This is a very well constructed tripod with a monopod option. Of the three tripods that I own, this one is by far the best one. I would recommend this item to anyone who enjoys taking shots outdoors.

For how to install the center column, please refer to this video https://youtu.be/3BvJKWNElRg.
Yes, you can change the head.
From what I can tell, the suggested mounting plate is a quick release. That would be a matter of preference and you wouldn't need another if you are satisfied with your mounting plate.
For how to install the foot locking system, please refer to this video https://youtu.be/jZb6Fn6T_u0.
To hold telephoto lens, it is recommended to use a tripod mount ring additionally for better balance. Meanwhile, it is better to hang some heavy thing to the hook to lower the center of gravity on this tripod to make it more sturdy and less prone to vibrations.
