Hey guys, I've got a question.
Are the carbon fibre tripods from Benro good products? I'm referring to the following two packages from Jack:
I only recently bought the Yong Nuo Gitai tripod from JLphoto, but realised that I left it behind because of the weight / size and regretted not getting something more compact.Package 7
Benro Carbon Fibre Tripod M057 + head BH-00 + padded tripod bag. OFFER PRICE: S$298
Benro Carbon Fibre Tripod M058 + head BH-00 + padded tripod bag. OFFER PRICE: S$308
I'm not someone who uses the tripod often, but I will be traveling with my school CCA to Brisbane this June. I will want to have a lighter / more compact tripod, but am not willing to spend too much. S$300 seems about fine, which is why I am asking your opinions.
My heaviest kit will consist of a pro line camera (just in case, I don't own one but plan to by the end of year) + 70-200 2.8 + flash. I don't use heavy telephoto lenses on tripods, but rather on monopods.
Would appreciate any comments! I don't want to spend too much because I know I don't use tripods often enough to justify the price of the more expensive Gitzo and Manfrotto CF's. I would also like to get my tripod locally, so Benro seems to be a good brand that I could go for.
Edit: Is the BH-00 head arca-swiss compatible?
