New Benro 'Combination' Tripods

July 11, 2017 | Zoltan Arva-Toth | Accessories | Comment |

Benro has launched a pair of carbon fibre tripods designed to provide heavy weight support for professional SLR cameras with long lenses. Based on the original Benro Combination tripods, the remodelled legs now feature the favoured ‘twist’ leg locks, rather than the lever leg locks on the earlier version. Ideal for wildlife and landscape photographers and film-makers alike, the tripods are extremely well specified, with key features including 8-layer carbon fibre tubes and magnesium alloy castings are lightweight, stable and offer excellent shock absorption, a flat mount platform for head, or supplied with levelling 75mm bowl for video use and a ballast hook for added stability. The tripods are available with three- or four-section legs and three feet options: ‘big’ foot, traditional rubber foot, or stainless spiked feet. The 3-section model (£400) has a maximum height of 150cm and folds down to 67.5cm, whilst the 4-section variant (£410) offers a maximum height of 152cm and a folded length of 57cm. Both models boast a maximum load capacity of 18kg.

‘Let’s Twist Again’ with Benro ‘Combination’ – the relaunch of a classic heavyweight.

Benro has launched a pair of carbon fibre tripods – perfect for providing heavy weight support for pro digital SLR cameras with long lenses. Based on the original Benro Combination tripods, the remodelled legs now feature the favoured ‘twist’ leg locks, rather than the lever leg locks on the earlier version.

Mark Hoskins, Benro product manager said: ‘We listened to feedback from photographers and the twist locks were much more popular on these models. So we’ve upgraded the design and relaunched a new improved version of this classic carbon fibre favourite.’

Ideal for wildlife and landscape photographers and film-makers alike, the tripods are extremely well specified, with key features including:

  • 8 layer carbon fibre tubes and magnesium alloy castings are lightweight, stable and offer excellent shock absorption
  • available with 3 or 4 leg sections – with dust resistant twist leg lock system (just ¼ turn to unlock and lock)
  • flat mount platform for head, or supplied with levelling 75mm bowl for video use
  • 3 feet options: ‘big’ foot, traditional rubber foot, or stainless spiked feet – all INCLUDED
  • ballast hook for added stability
  • padded carry bag included

With a maximum weight capacity of 18kg the Benro Combination tripods are perfectly suited for heavy DLSR cameras and long lenses – where the weight can be off centre, needing additional stability.

Benro Combination tripods can also be used for heavy medium format cameras and even video cameras – with the option of replacing the platform with the 75mm half bowl (included) so a video head with levelling half ball can be fitted.

Made from eight-layer carbon fibre, with magnesium alloy castings the Benro Combination tripods provide lightweight, yet robust and stable support.

The Benro Combination tripods are AVAILABLE NOW from all good photographic retailers.
