UK Optics has announced a new Novo T-Series tripod kit – price tag ranging from £199.99 to £229.99 – which offers a carbon fibre construction and a detachable monopod.

The new Novo T-Series tripod features an 8x layered carbon fibre construction, with four leg sections, rubber fast release twist locks and offering leg angles of 23/50/85°.

A detachable monopod is available by unscrewing one of the legs and adding the centre column to the leg.

The centre column is also reversible for macro photography, and there is a a Sprung hook on the bottom of the centre column for tethering or attaching a stone bag.

The Novo T-Series tripod also comes with detachable rubber and spiked feet, along with a short tube for low ground-level shooting at a height of 245mm.

Reversing the legs by 180° on the Novo T-Series reduces the size of the tripod for easier transport

Each of the three tripod kits in the Novo T-Series includes a ball and socket head, or there is a leg’s only option. Also included is a padded carrying bag with shoulder strap.
