Well I purchased the B0 ball head and am super satisfied with it a 5 star review. When it came to purchasing a backpacking tripod I chose this one that was a little heavier than the smaller model because it came with the B1 Ballhead. The tripod is wonderfull another 5 star review.

The B1 Ballhead is defective and Benro said it was within spec. Well there speck is garbage then. It takes 100% more effort to move it one way than the other. This means that with heavy gear it falls under its own weight but you can not move it back without changing the tension so nothing breaks. Yes it is that bad. I really dont care that it was bad things happen. But please stand behind your products. This was not a 12.99 item it was expensive for a paper weight.

Sorry to Benro but I dont have the time to fight with them more than once. I am not going to get cought up in a shipping war sending it back 3 or 4 times so I will wright this review and buy another brand.

The tripod design is perfect - the head is another matter altogether.

As other reviews note, the thing refuses to move even when everything is loose, there's no ring to tighten the bolt with, I had to make sure I was carrying a coin to tighten it properly, however, it doesn't stay tight, and within minutes of repositioning a few times the camera was loose, and the plate had to be retightened. At first I thought the non-quick release design was a good thing, I've had many quick releases jam over the years, but I quickly lost patience with the lack of positive feel as I removed and replaced the camera in normal use, it doesn't just "work" the way such things are supposed to.

So I'm looking around for another head, and wishing I could buy the tripod without the head, and wishing I could get a refund for the useless bit of gear that the tripod comes with...

I received my Benro C2691T Travel Angel Transfunctional Tripod Kit (it includes the Benro B1 Ball Head) this evening. The design, engineering and manufacturing are phenomenal. I am amazed by how compactly it folds up and how easy it is to use. I can hardly wait to put it to use tomorrow. I only wish I had purchased it before the two full size tripods, one carbon fiber, I purchased previously. If I had two cars, I'd buy another one!

O.K. Did I mention the kit comes with a quick release clamp and base plate? The description of this product is a little confusing as it says the kits come with the rubber feet OR the spiked metal feet. The kit actually comes with the rubber feet attached AND spiked metal "feet" in the inner zippered pocket of the supplied carrying case, which is very sturdy. I'd rate this kit 6 stars if I could. And, no, I do not have stock or ownership in Benro.

So, I couldn't wait until tomorrow. I extended the tripod, attached the quick release base plate to my Canon S100 and took a bunch of photos at different ISO settings, shutter speeds, and apertures. Tomorrow I'll try the tripod out with my Canon 5D Mark II and Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L II IS USM Telephoto Zoom Len. I have no doubt the tripod will be rock solid even with that rig on it, although I may have to hang my camera bag from the well-designed and welcome, spring-loaded retractable hook on the bottom of the tripod column. :-)

Nice product and works as advertised. The manual is very limited but the product is very easy enough to figure out. I will also state this product is pretty stable for a carbon travel mono / tripod and the carrying case in ideal. I thought it would weigh less but it's very solid (weighty) so keep this in mind and check out the specks if you plan on carrying with any additional gear for any distance. In addition, there are a few youtube vids out on how to utilize. I've not had any issues (per the other comments listed) so again I am very happy. I'm using with a Nikon D600 with a multitude of lenses. The head flows very smooth but I've yet to master all of the dynamics. I'm looking forward to hitting some hard core sites to test out the durability. Also, my price was $320 USD (free shipping) from t-dimensions which is afar cry from the $530 many others are asking for the same device! Best of luck to you all!

I own a variety of tripods and although I do not use any of them in my commercial work, I often use them for my personal photography. My primary tripod/head combination has been a Manfrotto Model 055 carbon fiber tripod with their 410 gear head. It's a great combination, but too heavy to hike with. Also I sometimes needed a tripod that I could place into carry on luggage and my current rig is too large.

After looking at a local camera shop I decided upon the Benro Travel Angel, carbon fiber model. The additional feature of having a removable monopod was especially inviting since I do use a monopod for my commercial work. I have never used a ball head and although it is not as sturdy as my Bogen 410 head it is very stable and not nearly as heavy. I also like the fact that the center column can be easily inverted simply by unscrewing the bottom of the column and inverting it into the tripod. This makes very low angle shots a snap even though they will be inverted. An easy fix in post processing. I have also admired the twist type locks on the Benro as my Manfrotto uses the lever type leg locks. I have found that I have to tighten the nuts on those units occasionally because they work themselves loose and always at a time when don't have a socket set to tighten them. The twist type locks work very well and won't loosen. The length of the Travel Angel including the ball head will easily fit into my carry on suitcase. And since my current aluminum monopod is also too long to fit, I now have a monopod that I can carry in my luggage.

I will say though that when I place my Canon 1D Mark IV and my 300mm f2.8 IS lens on the ball head, it has a bit of trouble holding it firmly in angles exceeding 15 degrees from horizontal.
