A tripod helps improve the results you get from your camera by holding it much more steady than you can yourself, making photos sharper and allowing you to concentrate more on catching the right scene at the right moment. A tripod gives you the flexibility to use camera settings (like low ISO, for example) that produce better quality images, and holds the camera still for longer exposures in low light, producing shake-free photos that really capture the colours and atmosphere.

The MKC3-P01 Photo Kit is a Compact Series tripod with a built-in ball head. A ball head allows the camera to be positioned freely and quickly, at any angle and inclination. The camera can easily be rotated between landscape and portrait positions. The MKC3-P01's ball head has a single easy locking control so you can fix your camera firmly in place before taking a photo.

Compact Series tripods have quick release camera plates so you can attach and detach your camera in seconds. The plate's universal mount fits all cameras' tripod thread (the screw thread on the underside). Compact Series tripods also have ergonomic lever leg locks, to make opening and closing the tripod fast. The centre column can be inverted, which reduces the folded length of the tripod, making it even shorter so it fits in smaller bags or storage spaces.

The Compact Series was designed to be an ideal first tripod: easy to use; quick to attach, detach, extend and fold; ultra-portable when closed yet practical and tall when open, they're among the most compact full-size tripods available; strong and secure enough to support anything from small point-and-shoots and compact camcorders up to entry-level DSLRs with kit lenses. iPhones and other cameraphones can be supported too (check your camera has a tripod thread on the underside, or that you have a tripod thread adaptor for your phone).

This model is black; a light-grey version is also available as standard. A special edition white version is available in some countries.
