Benro carbon tripod is the best
“I was looking for a good portable carbon tripod that would support a canon 50d with a 300 2.8 telephoto. This tripod folds down to a very compact size, easily attachable to a back pack or comfortably light to carry. It easily holds, supports and control the kit I have and provides a very stable platform. I was considering a Gitzo which I was told is the best and I have no doubt that that is also a very good product, but the Benro is less than half the price and I cannot see what difference there could be to equate for that disparity. A would strongly recommend anyone to take a look at Benro if you are considering a tripod.” – By Gary Cumberland

Benro C-258EX Features & Specifications

The Benro C-258EX 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 4MAXIMUM HEIGHT 61 NORMAL HEIGHT 52.4 FOLDED HEIGHT 19.9 LOAD CAPACITY 26.4.


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

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

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

Stainless Steel Spiked 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

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

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
