Thread: Is Benro tripod any good?

  1. #1

    Default Is Benro tripod any good?

    Ive been using those cheapo tripods all these while, and I finally cant stand it anymore (cant seem to hold my camera in place, keeps sliding).

    Dont hv a big budget, so thinking of just getting something under $150, and came across this Benro brand in mass sales.

    Tripod A200EX + ballhead BH-0

    Is the above ok? Has a load of 2.5kg, I seldom go above 2kg so it should be enough for me.

    Is this brand recommended?

    Thanks

    I use Benro. Seems good so far. I've read a number of negative reviews on this brand. Also read many positives.
    Exploring! :)
