Painters Pole to Pano Pole Conversion Kit

The Painters Pole to Pano Pole Conversion kit was designed as a low cost solution to the expensive Pano Poles.
Many photographers may only have one or two projects where a Pole system is needed, this conversion kit turns a £15 Painters Pole into a great low cost Pano Pole.

The system is based around a £15.98 Harris Performance 5mtr Pole but any pole with a 32mm diameter bottom section will do. The Tripod used is a Manfrotto O55 Pro but again any tripod with a 28mm centre column will work. You will get away with slightly smaller or slightly larger diameters but may require a bit of padding with some electrical tape if the clamps are too small.

The Harris Pole can be picked up at any DIY store such as B&Q, Click here for more information.

3D Printed to order in a choice of colours!

Each set is 3D printed to order and may take up to 10 days to produce from ordering. Due to the nature of 3D printing some pieces may differ slightly but this is completely normal and will not effect the operation of the product. I have several years experience designing and printing 3D parts and each piece has been designed and made for strength, hence why some of the pieces used take over 3 hours to print.

Each piece is solid ABS for strength and your kit can be a colour of your choice. I recommend a colour rather than black as they print nicer and its a purer ABS composite, black tends to be made up with the offcuts from the colours and doesn't print as nice as the colours.

The 12 Components of the Kit

Will fit any Painters Pole.
