Stability linked to versatility and weight are the prime considerations when choosing a tripod. For 35 years Benbo tripods have offered photographers a unique combination of these factors.
The tubular aluminium construction of the legs offers the best possible combination of weight and rigidity. The tripods unique, highly flexible main joint allows each leg to be independently positioned, allowing the camera to be positioned at almost any angle to the subject.
Whether used in the standard tripod configuration with the centre column vertical or down on the ground with the legs splayed out, or even with one leg pointing upwards finding support from a tree or a wall, Benbo tripods can always be relied upon to give complete stability.
Benbo Classic No 1 & 2 Tripods
These heavy-duty tripods offer great stability and are capable of supporting the heaviest of camera equipment, Both the No1 and No2 tripods are constructed from the same tough aluminium tubing, with the No2 tripod offering extra height with its longer legs. The double ended centre column offers a choice of standard 3/8" or 1/4" fixing for ball & socket heads.
Benbo Trekker Mk 3
A light weight version of the Classic number one tripod ideal for use where the tripod needs to be carried greater distances.
The latest version of this award winning tripod incorporates geared faces on the main joint components, ensuring that the joint can be locked firmly without undue tightening of the locking handle. The newly designed leg head castings allow the legs to be folded compactly when transporting the tripod.
Weight and stability go hand in hand. A hook at the bottom of the centre column allows a camera bag or other weight to be attached when greater stability is required.
The flexibility of the leg joint mechanism combined with the ability to swing the centre column through 180 degress, allows the camera to be positioned at almost any point relative to the tripod legs.
