Benro A2970F Tripod and B2 Ballhead








UPS delivered this to me today.. A huge step up from my $39 big box store cheesy tripod..

Benro has excellent gear but this tripod cost $154 instead of $1500. It has one particularly excellent feature which I'll be using. You can remove the center post and then flip up the center post holder and rotate it anywhere between 0 and 180 degrees.

The tripod is designed to hold 26 pounds.

I overbought my ball head a bit as it will support 44 pounds but I liked it more than the one that supported the same weight as the tripod.. Heavier duty... It should be a lifetime investment..

The rig is more than enough to hold my d800, plus stackshot horizontally to shoot images of items on a tabletop.

I found this brand by doing careful google searches and reading photographer recommendations.

They seem to spend next to nothing promoting themselves, it seems. unlike mainstream tripod brands.. Or they spend it where I don't see it.

This has me excited because now I can work on setting up my stackshot and start doing what I intended to do back in December!
