Excellent Support

Stig, WEX
11 June 2014
  • Summary: I use this tripod in combination with a Giottos MH5001 head, as both had received good reviews around the web.I'm 6'3" and this tripod is easily tall enough for me to use very comfortably.This item is neither lightweight nor too heavy for its size, and it's not too cumbersome.I wouldn't use it if I were going on long trips, but would opt for a more practical monopod instead.Carbon Fibre goes along way to resolving these problem, but in my opinion at too higher cost...
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement, Versatile

Benro is a GO GO!

  • Summary: Have used the Tripod and several occasions in the last few weeks, I did my homework and chose this of the the Manfrotto equivalent. Very impressed - feels stirdy and many positions can be achieved. Very happy - I chose a Giottos Series II MH1312 ball head to complete this - all fits in the very handy tripod bag too.
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement
  • Cons: Heavier Than A Carbon

Why spend more?

  • Summary: A stable well built tripod. Sure it is heavier than other similar equipped one but i can't justify a reason to spend double the amount. Set up/down with the clip system takes seconds (singular). The carry bag is good and strong.
  • Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement

Serious Kit

Keith, WEX
1 February 2013
  • Summary: This is a serious piece of kit. I decided I needed a sturdier, more stable tripod after my favourite Manfrotto 190DXB blew over twice! I can't imaging this Benro suffering the same fate. It's heavier than the Manfrotto, but I knew that before I purchased it. It's the strongest, sturdiest tripod I've ever owned and It looks better made than just about any other I've come across. I expect it to provide years of good service.
