Customer Reviews

Folds small enough to fit in my brief case.
FriscoGuy
The Gitzo is carbon, this Benro is aluminum, but the weight is very similar and they both fold up to a very compact and easy-to-carry size.

It is very well made and easy to extend and fold back up.

This is a very well made aluminum tripod, and very comparable in quality to high end brands like Gitzo. I also have a Gitzo carbon fiber travel tripod and while this Benro is no Gitzo, it's pretty close. The Gitzo is carbon, this Benro is aluminum, but the weight is very similar and they both fold up to a very compact and easy-to-carry size. Functionally, they are also very similar and are equally as stable. The ball head on this Benro is obviously not as good as the Markins ball head I have on the Gitzo, but it still works well and can't really complain because I'm reviewing the tripod and consider the included ball head on the Benro as "free" icing on the cake. The Gitzo was $800, this Benro was $150. The money I saved can buy me several higher quality ball heads with lots of change to spare should I choose to do so. That makes this Benro one of the best values in travel tripods by far. It comes with a nice heavy-duty nylon carry bag too. You get a lot for your money with this one. Need to travel light with your photo gear but don't want to spend an arm and a leg? Look no further.

My wife and I are comparing some ultraportable tripods for a trip to south america and we are comparing this unit with the Mefoto A1350Q1K Roadtrip. The two units are almost identical in size when closed. When standing the MeFoto gives you a few extra inches to work with.

The MeFoto is a more expensive unit, but the price difference is trivial when you just compare how much stronger and more sturdy it feels when compared to the Benro. Let me summarize:

MeFoto Road trip vs Benro Travel Angel:
- MeFoto has almost 3 times the load limit, and that difference in strength and rigidity is clear instantly.
- MeFoto uses arca swiss vs a custom QR plate
- MeFoto's ball head has a separate lock for panning which is really nice for panoramas
- MeFoto converts to a monopod
- Benro is lighter.

I think that the additional weight of the MeFoto is worth it for how much more rigid it is. I wouldn't feel uncomfortable putting my full frame camera on the MeFoto unit, but I would be concerned doing the same with the Benro. The weight difference is noticeable, but since they're almost the same size when closed up, it's not really that much convent.

I was a little hesitant about buying the Benro brand since there is limited information about it, but I am glad I did. This travel angel is able to hold up to 5.5 lbs of weight making it perfect for most situations. I have a Canon 60D with a bulky Canon 24-70 L and a Sigma 70-200. The sigma is a little heavy but once positioned on the plate by the lens collard it fits and performs solidly. The build quality is exceptionally firm it does not feel cheap; It has a very professional look. I definitely recommend this tripod to anyone that needs a sturdy, but travel friendly tripod. I compared this tripod with several Manfrotto tripods and I have to tell you that for around the same price this Angel outperformed them by far.

This tripod is great. Light, portable, sturdy and can take the elements.
I swapped the Benro BH00 Head with a Manfrotto 486RC2 that I already owned and it still folds down to the smallest possible size. Fits inside my TravelPro carry-on with no problem
A week in Hawaii [...] gave me great results with the following scenarios:
70-200 (w 2x II extender) on a 5D2 body balances great on the lens collar
24 1.4II on a 5D2 works great for time lapse
40mm pancake with the 5D2 make for a super light combination with the tripod.

Many of the shots I took were in the sand or sometime salt water which didn't seem to effect the leg adjustments at the end of the week.
Great travel tripod - highly recommended.

After only using cheap tripods before, this is a step into a new dimension! Love it! Light for backpacking all day, versatile and very stable. Perfect for what I wanted.

UPDATE:
After a few months of relatively light use, one of the legs worked loose. Tightening it would only last a very short time, not a full day of shooting. I am going to replace this with something of better quality.

The tripod is very sturdy, looks very cool and it's light and very portable. Of course there are many other cheaper and lighter tripods out there, but this one is good enough to get your camera and a heavy lens very stable.
My only "complaint" (If you can call it so) is that instead of having a quick release system to extend the legs, it is threaded and you take a bit longer to set it up...But maybe that's part of the sturdiness and reliability of this great piece.

I bought this tripod as my first full size tripod after starting to get more serious about photography. My first impressions are very positive.

Since travel is a hobby of mine, size matters. I looked at similar tripods on amazon.com, and this seemed to be the best mix of price and weight (4 lbs vs. anywhere from 7 to 10 pounds for others in the $100 - $150 range. Build quality is solid, and after using the tripod in a windy and somewhat unstable position this weekend, it holds up well. I've got a basic camera set up, Canon T1i with a 35-135 lens, so can't comment on its stability with better lenses/setups, but I think it would do the trick. Combined with the light weight, I think this will be a great help for future

The tripod is easy to use and the quick release head works well. The built in level is a nice touch also. The only downside this has is the telescoping legs are kind of cumbersome to set up...I'm sure others have a quicker set up.

UPDATE:

Just visited best buy. I don't feel like this tripod is a big upgrade over other similar tripods for 1/2 the price. The build quality may be slightly higher, and perhaps this is a bit more compact, but other release mechanisms are way easier than the twist-locks, which are relatively, a pain in the ass. Good tripod, but I think there's better for less $$.
