The Benro A-169M8 Travel Angel Aluminum Tripod with BH-0 Ballhead is a professional-quality tripod that uses lightweight high rigidity aluminum alloy with a wall thickness of 1.5mm. In addition, magnesium is used for all die-cast parts. Despite its lower weight, magnesium is more rigid than aluminum, and has the same strength per volume. The tripod comes fully-featured, and is precisely machined to offer the quality and strength demanded by professional photographers.
Travel Angel A-series tripods feature individual leg angle adjustments, anti-rotation leg design, a reversible center column with spring loaded weight hook, anti dust and moisture rubber leg lock grips, and reversible 1/4"-20 to 3/8" mounting threads.
This tripod features a 180° folding mechanism, where the legs totally cover-up the top plate and "spider", and which accommodates the head inside the folded tripod legs. This allows it to fold up to a shorter size.
Includes single action ballhead to match the size of the tripod; with calibrated panning base, locked down by a single lock-down lever, and a dual quick release locking system
New Anti-Rotation Leg (ALR) system, which prevents each leg from rotating. Each leg section will not rotate even if they are unlocked. The ALR system allows quick and easy setup of the tripod in less than a minute. Simply unscrew, pull, tighten. As simple as ABC. Dismount the hook, and you can reverse the center column for difficult shooting angles. The grooved-design of the column eliminates unwanted column rotation and prevents it from accidental slipping.
Benro’s patented dust resistance rubber grips offer a unique function not found on any other brand. The rubber grips are firmly attached to each threaded locking collar. Once the locking collar is in its fully locked position, the rubber grip completely covers and seals and gap between the threads and outside elements. The rubber seal seals off dust, sand, dirt and water. In addition, tap lock plastic leg lock bushings provides water resistance for each leg section. Great for outdoor usage.
Travel Angle series tripod comes with rubber feet, which is ideal for indoor use, without damaging the carpet, wood floor or marble. Optional stainless steel spike foot is available to ensure better ground stability in soil, sand, rocky cliffs and other outdoor terrains where rubber foot might find it slipery.
Spring hooks allows you to add stability to the tripod by hanging camera bags or heavy objects onto it.
