Four fantastic lightweight yet high quality tripod kits plus one monopod kit are now available via the leading UK photographic distributor

Kenro is very proud to announce the mid September launch of its first-ever own-brand supports. The exciting new line-up comprises two entry-level tripod kits, available in both small and large sizes, and two professional kits, again in a choice of small or large. A further addition is a Kenro monopod, making for five new supports in total.

All are high quality products at affordable prices in attractive retail packaging. Constructed from lightweight magnesium aluminium alloy for comfortable transportation - with the monopod boasting a titanium alloy build - these new additions are capable of bearing impressive loads.

A key selling point is the sheer wealth of product that photographers get with each support they buy - which is why these are being pitched as tripod and monopod kits, as opposed to just tripods. The initial offering of four tripod kits and one monopod kit includes legs and heads, so that photographers have everything they need - along with a bag to transport it all in.

With the kits having the added advantage of being ultra compact when folded, this truly is the full package from Kenro.

The line up also offers versatility. Three of the four tripod kits can be converted into monopods the central column simply pops out and attaches to one of the legs.

The same three tripods have very low working heights - thanks to a short centre column also being included as part of the kits.

Kenro promises that the initial launch of five supports will be added to and expanded upon in the coming months.

''Weve always had a good reputation for distributing tripods, as well as customer service,'' adds MD Paul Kench. ''We looked at various options for new tripod ranges, but decided that rather than distributing another agency range, we had sufficient product knowledge to put together our own offering. The initial launch of five products is one that we will be expanding on in the forthcoming months and years.''

All Kenro tripods are covered by the unprecedented peace of mind of a six year limited warranty. T&Cs apply. Please see website for details.

Four new Kenro tripods & one monopod to choose from

With five new products launched in total, heres a swift summary of the key features of each

Designed with the traveller in mind the Model 101 Kenro Standard Travel Tripod Kit is quick and easy to set up, thanks to three-position twist lock legs and anti-skid rubber feet. It comes supplied with ball head, a carry case, warranty card and instructions.

When not in use its legs can be folded back through 180 for ultra compactness, a padded handgrip delivering added comfort. The tripod is ready to go out of its box, with a matched single action ball head, an Arca Swiss style quick release plate and built-in spirit level provided.

The Kenro Standard Travel Tripod Kit further features a Two Section Centre Column and Hook, giving photographers both a good working height and ultra compact folded size. The hook, positioned on the bottom of the centre column, allows the user to hang weights from the tripods centre of gravity in order to maximise stability.
