We have investigated the effects of different hadronic form factors on the performance of an isobaric model developed for kaon photo-production off the proton. We found that there is no ideal form factor in this case. The dipole and generalized dipole form factors can help to nicely reproduce the differential cross-section and hyperon polarization data. However, in the case of double polarization data Cx and Cz the Gaussian form factor is found to be superior.
