Product Description

The Benro TRA169 Travel Angel Aluminum Tripod with BH-0 Ballhead is a professional-quality tripod that has lightweight, highest quality aluminum alloy legs for top performance at an economical price. In addition, magnesium is used for all die-cast parts. Despite its lower weight, magnesium is more rigid than aluminum, and has the same strength per volume. Travel Angel tripods are easy-to-carry so you’ll want them with you at all times. Travel Angel’s unique 180 degree foldover design allows them to be folded into a compact package that can easily fit into backpacks or luggage. However, when you need quick setup, excellent maximum height and a rigid, stable support, Benro Travel Angels are impressive performers! Travel Angel tripods feature individual leg angle adjustments, anti-rotation leg design, a reversible center column with spring loaded weight hook, anti dust and moisture rubber leg lock grips, and reversible 1/4"-20 to 3/8" mounting threads.LEG SECTIONS 5 MAXIMUM HEIGHT 59.6 NORMAL HEIGHT 51.3 FOLDED HEIGHT 14.9 LOAD CAPACITY 8.8

I did a lot of research about a small travel tripod and for the money this is a great tripod (don't think that I said for the money because it is cheap). Comparing it to tripods that cost $200 to $300 more it's hard to believe that this is such a nice piece of equipment, but it is! I could only look at the more expensive "Name brand" tripods on camera stores so when I ordered the Benro I wasn't sure what I was getting.

All worries were removed when I got the tripod, I set it up all the way extended and it is solid, solid... Maybe not as solid as a 20lb tripod, but almost no movement, etc and it is small!!! Great carrying bag comes with it, a very solid build quality! Like others said the ballhead isn't the greatest, but I bought the lower end ballhead version so I can replace it later, but overall it works good to lock down my Canon 50d and my 100mm Macro, 28-135 or my 18-50mm 2.8 glass! I just got back from vacation and used this tripod to take some sunset pictures on the beach on a windy day the tripod wasn't moving at all, great sharp pictures and it was solid.

So if you have read all the other reviews and are still wondering (like I was) it is a great small and solid tripod...

I bought this tripod because it was reasonably priced and would fit in my carry-on luggage, as I do not check any baggage when I travel. It comes in a nice case that is easy to carry on its own, and it also fits in a backpack. For the price, it functioned very well. It was a bit touchy with keeping the head stable, but once I made sure everything was tightened, it held my Nikon D90 with 18-200 mm lens with ease. I definitely recommend it for the casual photographer on a budget.
