Benro C-258M8 User Reviews

Light, compact and easy to carry around
“Very comfortable to carry around with my canon 40D and canon 500mm IS lens mounted on the tripod. Good quality and good stability. It doesn’t unfolds as quickly.” – By cougar man

Very light, sturdy, well made
“Plenty sturdy with Canon T2i and 100-400mm on a large ball head. Great for binocs, small telescope and video camera on a fluid video head. Love how light it is.” – By GPOGPO

Better than expected
“I am an outdoor photographer who is hard on equipment. I finally killed off my old aluminum tripod and decided to go carbon this time. I am very pleased with the feel and function of this tripod, and it will be heading into the Yucatan jungle in a week. I have no doubts it will be a great replacement for my old Manfrotto.” – By Rob H

Benro C-258M8 Features & Specifications

The Benro C-258M8 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 61 NORMAL HEIGHT 52.4 FOLDED HEIGHT 20.7 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

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
