Excellent Little Tripod
“If you’re looking for something that is small and easy to carry around, this is a great tripod for the application. Don’t try to compare it with one having leg members that are much larger and “beefier”, but for its size, it will provide reasonable stability. This will make a great traveler, weighing somewhat more than a carbon fiber model, but costing substantially less. I purchased this model to pack on a bicycle while touring. I haven’t tried it yet, but I think it will work nicely. The construction is superb, with a nice finish on all components. I like the grooved center column, which makes putting on and taking off a ball head much easier…” – By Tim

solid tripod
“The tripod feels solid with absolutely no loose feeling even when completely extended. The finish is a nice satin black and looks pro not flashy. There is a small bubble level on the top part of the leg and also a small compass! There is a nice sponge grip on one of the legs. I am glad I got this one it feels solid and professional.” – By Mike K

Cant close one section! OK now. Smooth, nice leg twist locks, so far so good
“I have only used it on one photo shoot but was impressed with how smooth the twist leg locks worked and how the tripod functioned overall. Legs are a bit stiff spreading apart but I imagine they will loosen up after some more use. Seems well made and I am glad I purchased this. Will update after another outing. I had a $450 Giotto tripod and RRS ball head before this so I have an idea of what a very expensive setup is like. I love twist leg locks much preferred over the clamp.” – By Mark C.

Adjustable Leg Angles
For an extra measure of flexibility, Benro tripod legs can be independently locked into place at three different angles to enable shooting in cramped quarters, on irregular surface areas, or at ground level

Reversible Center Column
The center column, which features a ridge-and-groove design to eliminate unwanted column rotation, can be quickly inverted for exacting, lower angle camera positioning

Head Mounting Setscrews
Setscrews provide an extra level of security when attaching the head to the tripod’s top-plate

Center-Column Hook
A hook, located on the bottom of the center-column, allows you to hang additional weight from the tripod’s center of gravity for increased stability

Shoulder Strap and Carry Case
Benro straps and carrying cases are made of quality, high-durability materials to provide maximum protection for your tripod and head

Wing nut-style Column Lock
A wing nut-style center column-locking knob allows for secure, intuitive-action height adjustments on the fly

Patented Dust & Water Resistant Rubber Lock Grips with Anti-Rotation Leg System
Benro’s innovative rubberized locking grips combined with anti-rotation legs enable fast and fumble-free set-up plus weather and dust-resistance not found on other tripods

Spirit Level and Compass
In or out of the studio, a built-in spirit level helps keep your camera squared-off and level to your subject, and a built-in compass provides orientation coordinates

Closed-Cell Foam Grip
A thick layer of closed-cell nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) provides a comfortable yet firm grip when carrying your Benro tripod
