Good quality tripod
“This is a very good tripod for the money. It is extremely light, it feels high-quality, the tension on the grips and adjustments is just right, and it collapses down to quite a manageable size. Other things I appreciate are the high-quality case it comes with (which was sized to fit not just the tripod but a ballhead base and attachment–a nice touch); the ability to adjust the legs outward to get the base height lower even when fully extended; the replaceable feet (and yes it comes with both rubber and steel spike feet); the inclusion of all necessary tools to adjust it; a hook under the center column for hanging additional weight; and the addition of a soft grip on one of the top sections (an extra cost on all the other ones I looked at). All in all it’s quick to set up, sturdy, light, and feature-rich, and the nice touches made me feel like these guys want to be seen as a real leader in the space. “ – By Aspiring Wannabe Photographer

Great tripod
“I’m totally delighted with it! It comes as advertised, including things that are extras for other tripods: a nice carry case, all tools, spiked and rubber feet, a level and a weight hook on the center post. Fit and finish is great! Tripod legs aren’t useful without a head so I also bought the B1 ball head (also great) and the tripod with head fits in the bag – a nice feature. Overall a great buy!!” – By Bob

Compact and light weight
“It’s leight, it’s farily compact and feels sturdy. At first it seem to light to hold 17 lbs but once it set up the camera stays in place. I’m using my Manfrotto grip head with it, i could get even more compact with a smaller ball head. Shoudl be great for travel where size and space are a concern. Depending on the camera you shoot I would consider a more heavy duty tripod rated at over 25 lbs. I have an old Bogan 3001 and it weights twice this one and is no more stable.” – By Tye’s photography

Benro C-158M8 Features & Specifications

The Benro C-158M8 Carbon Fiber Tripod is a sturdy, high-quality tripod that uses 8 layer, 2nd generation carbon fiber technology for its leg construction. The 8x tubing is 60% stronger overall than conventional carbon fiber tripods. The use of components made of magnesium makes the tripod lighter and stronger than die-cast aluminum components. C-series tripods feature individual leg angle adjustments, a reversible center column with spring-loaded weight hook, foam leg grips, dust and moisture resistant rubber leg lock grips, reversible 1/4-20 to 3/8″ mounting threads, bubble level, and mounting set screws. LEG SECTIONS 4 MAXIMUM HEIGHT 58.7 NORMAL HEIGHT 50 FOLDED HEIGHT 19.7 LOAD CAPACITY 17.6.


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

Stainless Steel Spike or Rubber Feet
Most Benro tripods come equipped with a choice of screw-in rubber feet or stainless steel spiked feet

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

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

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
