With eight models in the range, the Benro Universal Series Tripods boast strength and portability in equal measure, courtesy of a winning combination of magnesium alloy castings and machined aluminium alloy legs. This has enabled Benro to produce a very stable lightweight precision-engineered tripod complete with a quality ball head, and deliver a very affordable and economical package.
Benro aluminium tubing is made of imported high strength aluminium alloy specially processed to maintain a weight that’s light yet to also deliver strength and rigidity. All metal parts are protected with a combination of anodizing and high temperature powder paint treatment – enhancing the tripod’s impact and corrosion resistance capabilities, thus making for a long service life.
Magnesium alloy is also deployed because it is 30 per cent lighter than aluminium alloys in the same quantity, plus its strength, stability and anti vibration performance is, we believe, better.
Adjustable leg height
Flexibility as the regards height and positioning of the Benro Universal Series Tripod’s fold out legs is provided courtesy of three adjustable leg stops. The tripod can even be positioned a few inches off the floor for ultra low-level photography.
Reversible centre column
Further adjustability is provided via a reversible centre column. The column is grooved to eliminate unwanted rotation and for ease of register.
Additional stability can be called upon when needed thanks to a hook on the underside of the Benro Universal Series Tripod’s centre column, allowing weights to be attached to act as a counterbalance to whatever load is placed on the tripod.
Flip lock legs
The ability to set up a tripod quickly and easily is crucial – and that is the faculty provided here, thanks to large flip lock levers on the legs.
Ball Head included
As mentioned in our intro, the Benro Universal Series Tripods are supplied with Benro N Series Ball Heads. These feature Arca Swiss style system quick release camera plates and controls for precise positioning of your camera.
Spirit level & Compass
For ease of use when levelling up, the Benro Universal Series Tripod comes with an integral spirit level and compass.
