Excellent quality and value

  • Excerpt: Tripods are a blessing and a curse. For superior image quality, the best tripods are big, heavy, rigid and solid, which provides a stable platform for sharp images. Of course, these very qualities are the ones we hate, especially if you have to lug the thing around. I have one of those, and it stays in my studio. So to me, the final verdict of a tripod review depends on your intended usage and the compromise between stability and portability.

  • Excerpt: I needed a good lightweight medium-duty tripod (for Nikon D5100) with an ability to position the center post in a horizontal position for macro work. The Benro A1980F has not disappointed. It's sturdy and well made.

This is a Great Tripod: The Benro A1980F

  • Excerpt: I am a professional graphic designer / amature photographer who needs to take product shot photos from time to time. This particular tripod is perfect for studio shots of small objects as the center pole quickly pulls out and slides into a horizontal (90 degree) angle for those overhead shots. I have also used this tripod in the field for capturing nature photography.

Great Tripod, Highly Recomended

  • Excerpt: The Benro A1980F is what I would consider my first real tripod. That being said, I am extremely happy with it. <br /><br />Compared to other tripods I've handled, it is very sturdy for its weight and everything about it handles smoothly. Coupled with a typical Manfrotto ball-head, the tripod weighs a little under 5 pounds which I found acceptable to carry around for extended amounts of time.
  • Pros: Carrying case, Foam Grip, Folds Small, Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly

  • Summary: This Tripod features a center column that can be raised out of its chassis so you can pivot and swivel it into almost any position. You can swivel the column 360° and tilt it up to 180° ? perfect for capturing low-to-the-ground shots and for performing macro photography at any angle.
