Kenko KDS mount remodeling [Tripod]

望遠レンズで写真を撮る時、三脚の雲台の角度の微調整が難しい。そこで、ケンコーKDSマウントを改造した。ケンコーKDSマウントは、水平と上下の回転が2つのノブで微調整でき、適度なフリクションで直接回転することもできる。しかし重心位置が高くなるので、部品の一つを180度回転し雲台を付け替えた。フリクション調整のノブは六角レンチで調整できるボルトに付け替えた。ケンコーKDSマウントにはプレートが付属していないので、GITZO GS2370LAを購入した。

When take a picture with a telephoto lens, it is difficult to fine adjustment of the angle of the pan head of the tripod. So, it was remodeled Kenko KDS mount. Kenko KDS mount can be finely adjusted with knob rotation of two vertical and horizontal, and can be rotated directly with moderate friction. However, since gravity center position is high, the one component is rotated 180 degrees and re-attach the pan head. Knob of friction adjustment was replaced with a bolt that can be adjusted with an Allen wrench. Since tKenko KDS mount does not come with he plate, I have purchased a GITZO GS2370LA.
