Fantastic tripod. I was looking for something relatively small and lightweight but that would still handle a full sized DSLR with serious glass. The A1980F not only does that but it has the extra flexibility of the swinging center column which is surprisingly handy. I do videography as well as photography and this allows me to get shots I couldn't otherwise get.

This is much sturdier than similar offerings from Velbon and Vanguard and on par or better than Manfrotto. I don't like the way Manfrotto does their swinging center column which is why I picked the Benro, that and the better price.

Of course nothing is perfect. I feel like they could have lost a cm of collapsed height between the swing assembly and the top plate. This seems nitpicky but I only need another cm of clearance to fit this into its bag with the head I mounted on it, as it stands it doesn't fit.

The other minor gripe is having to remove the feet to put the spikes on for mucky terrain. Other manufacturers have retractable spikes under the rubber. Not a big deal really, but an extra step and more things to lose.

I spent a year hunting for the perfect tripod and this is the closest I came. If you get it, you won't be sorry.

I used this tripod through all kinds of crazy conditions while filming in India. From cold, dry, dusty, wet, climate in the himalayas to 100% humidity and 110 degrees in central India and this bad boy held up just fine! It can get pretty darn high and it folds down very small to fit in a suit case. It's also very light weight (great for travel). It's not the most stable of tripods, but that's the trade off for a compact, lightweight tripod like this. The flip lock levers on the legs are the only way to go! So fast and easy. There is even a hook on the column to hook a weight bag on for extra stability if you want.
