Wonderful Legs
“I bought these legs as a means to support my 300mm f/2.8 and 2x teleconverter combination with a full Wimberley head for long range telephoto work. The legs setup very quickly with the very nice quick locks. I thought that the quick lock mechanism would be less sturdy, but not only do the legs feel sturdier than the screw locks on my other tripod, they are also very easy to set which makes leveling much easier. They are aluminum and certainly not as light as the carbon fiber version, however, they are not nearly as heavy as I expected. However, for 1/3 of the price tag of the CF version, these are very usable weightwise. The legs are extremely sturdy.” – By E. Martin

Very Good Pro, Pro Am Tripod for Tall Photographers
“Less than the competitors equivalent with equal quality. The 358EX has quick release legs and allows me to extend it all the way up to my 6’5” height with very good stability. I shoot people so I have the Benro B-3 monoball head. This is my second purchase of similar Benro Equipment. The first were stolen in a studio break in. I used them regularly in studio and on location and had no problems. The new generation appear even better. I am a fan of this company. Very good products and Very good prices. Gitzo should take note. “ – By J. Copeland

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

Quick Lock Legs with Anti-Rotation Leg System
Tripod height can easily be set by a flip of the quick lock leg levers, which combined with anti-rotation legs enable fast and fumble-free set-up

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
