The Mantona Kodiak XL 324 F15 tripod is the optimal choice for ambitious travel, outdoor and nature photographers with special requirements. The Kodiak series offers comfort and precision in all 3 planes of motion thanks to a swiveling and rotating centre column. The height-adjustable, 210° tiltable, and 360° rotating centre column gives you unlimited freedom for the placement of your equipment. In the XL Version the tripod offers a working height of 8 to 190 cm and an outstanding stability. The included ball head has a very high load capacity of 15 kg. It too pleases with its first-class workmanship as well as with its full-featured equipment including friction control.
Highest variability for your recordings
Thanks to its extremely variable working height, the Kodiak proves to be a true multi-talent. With the centre column fully extended, the Kodiak XL 324 F15 offers a working height of impressive 190 cm. Even with the center column inserted and thus maximum stability, the result is a very comfortable 160 cm maximum height.
The Kodiak's strengths show especially in macro photography. With its foldable centre column construction, your photographic equipment can be brought in almost any desired position. In addition, with the separate, short centre column, the working height can be reduced to a minimum of 8 cm. Of course, the centre column can also be placed in reverse position below the tripod shoulder for hanging camera shots. All setups are torsion-proof and enormously stable due to the intelligent centre column and tripod shoulder construction.
First-class handling, clever details and elegant controls
The tripod's legs angle can be adjusted by means of the ergonomically formed locking clips in 3 steps. Very voluminous and stable tripod legs made of aluminium with diameters of 32, 28, 25 and 22 mm provide for a safe footing - due to the integrated spikes and the stabilizing hook even on soft terrain like bog, snow and ice.
A spirit leve set in the tripod shoulder facilitates the precise setup of the tripod. The intelligent construction of the tripod shoulder allows clean, damped panorama pans even without a tripod head.
The three foam handles allow a comfortable handling even in cold weather conditions. There's a Mini-LED lamp included in the scope of delivery, which is a nice gadget for assembly and disassembly in low light.
Exclusive ball head and bag included
The attached Mantona Fortress 40 ball head convinces with highest quality and functionality as well as a particularly rich equipment. Arca-Swiss compatibility, top-quality processing with high-quality control elements and the highest user-friendliness are combined with a very remarkable maximum load capacity of 15 kg. The ball head has a special feature: A friction control screw. This allows the adjustment of the resistance when turning the ball head and also controls the adjustment range for the locking of the ball head. Using the thumb or the tool supplied, the friction path can be adjusted simply and effectively to the weight of your equipment, or also to your individual preferences. Thus a long adjustment range provides for a particularly sensitive operability. For heavy equipment or especially fast handling the friction path can be reduced to nearly zero.
Also included in delivery is a high-quality, padded tripod bag with a length of 66 cm.
Ball head with Arca-Swiss quick-change system
Quick-release plate of the Onyx ball head is Arca-Swiss compatible. Scales on the ball head base as well as on the quick-release plate guarantee the precise setup of your shot. The complete equipment is completed by two spirit levels and a bubble level. Proper damping and a precise panorama scale allow for clean and controlled panorama pans.
