Here's the lo' down

The Benro is wonderfully built. Its sturdy and does the job like its supposed to do. Slightly on the heavy side but thats what I want to keep it firm on the ground. It does come with a ball head and is ergonomically designed to make the small adjustments with ease.

I am a happy camper...photographer ;)

How much did you get it and where? I'll be checking Hidalgo soon, hopefully the Avenue there has some stocks  :)

Yeah it seems to have more muscle than the Sherpa  :D

I bought the Velbon Ultra Luxi F because it is the smallest, most compact and lightweight tripod at JT Photo at the time. I don't know if it is still available.
Bought it for 6k.   I brought it to Bohol and Palawan even at the beaches. Nilubog ko sa sand and saltwater. Wala namang naging problema. Twist and lock sytem siya.

have the benro a500ex too.  sturdy and can carry a heavy weight.

i used it with this setup, 40d with grip, 24-70, flash and it is very stable.

it also has a carry bag with strap.

Got an A-500EX today at shuttermaster.  Feels tough, looks cool (black) and very convenient (ball-head). P4.2k ang kaskas sa credit card.
