The highly affordable Benro A-150EXU Digital Tripod Kit is a light-duty aluminum tripod that is not light on features. It will support equipment such as point and shoot cameras, lightweight DSLRs or camcorders weighing up to 4.4 lb (2 kg). This kit includes a Benro ballhead which features a single, one-touch adjustment knob for smooth and accurate pans and tilts. It has a dual-locking quick release system and comes with the PH-07 quick release plate which together allow for the secure and easy placement of your equipment on and off the ballhead.

This tripod is quite versatile. It has leg sections which adjust independently to three different angles, and a two-section center column which can be reversed for attaining low shooting angles. The column can be split for extremely low-level shooting which is great for shooting nature and macro photography plus a wide variety of other subjects requiring unique camera positioning. With an all-weather foam grip and rubber feet with retractable spikes, this tripod can be used inside or outdoors. It folds down to a mere 20.4" (51.8cm) and weighs only 2.2 lb (1 kg), making it easy to take with you while on vacation or location.

Adjustable Leg Angles
For an extra measure of flexibility, Benro tripod legs can be independently locked into place at three different angles to enable shooting in cramped quarters, on irregular surface areas, or at ground level.
Single Action Knob Adjustment
A single, one-touch adjustment knob allows for quick and precise camera positioning.
Reversible Center Column
The center column can be quickly inverted for exacting, lower angle camera positioning.
Quick Lock Leg Levers with Anti-Rotation Leg System
The tripod height can easily be set by a flip of the quick lock leg levers, which combined with anti-rotation legs enable fast and fumble-free set-up.
Dual-Lock Quick Release System
A matching ballhead incorporates a bubble level and a patented dual lock-lever that makes it easy to mount your camera via an oversize quick release plate to the head, while preventing any chance of accidentally unseating the camera.
Retractable Rubber Feet
Rubber feet retract to expose steel spikes to insure your tripod sits solid on almost any terrain.
Wing Nut Style Column Lock
A wing nut style center column-locking knob allows for secure, intuitive-action height adjustments on the fly.
Split Center Column
The center column can be split so it is shortened for low level photography.
Closed-Cell Foam Grip
A thick layer of closed-cell nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) provides a comfortable yet firm grip when carrying your tripod in any weather.

    The purchase of this tripod made me realize why B&H is so awesome! Identified through the rating and helpful reviews here on B&H, I purchased this tripod with some hesitation (I usually like the touch and feel equipment prior to purchase). Boy was I surprised when this product arrived in the mail!

    Sturdy, reliable, and compact, this tripod is a great value! Purchasing a similar quality product at your local camera store will run you around $200 (trust me I tested this out). The tripod comes with a stylish case and easily fits in carryon luggage or in a backpack.

    This product is an amateurs tripod dream. I highly recommend getting it if you are new to photography (tripods help you get closer to that 'tack sharp' photo we are all after) or if you want a lightweight travelling tripod.

    Very light in weight. However it is a little flimsy. Ok for small cameras but I would not trust this tripod with my 30D or 50D. The telescoping legs and center post do no slide easily. They have a tendency to stick. The built in level indicator is pretty much useless. You can't see it with the camera attached.

      Comments about Benro A-150EXU Digital Tripod Kit with Ballhead and Quick Release Plate:

      I used this for my recent trip and loved it. It is compact yet sturdy and fits nicely in the tripod pouch on my camera bag. It is less stable than some tripods but gets the job done for me with my midrange dslr with a moderately heavy lens on it.

          This tripod isn't even good enough for a beginner. Once the legs were extended and camera placed in the clip it shook and was very unstable.
          The only good thing about it was the ballhead.

          Comments about Benro A-150EXU Digital Tripod Kit with Ballhead and Quick Release Plate:

          I've had this tripod for 2 years now. I always bring it with me on my travels. Its almost the same size as my camera bag which is a huge bonus. Great things about this tripod are its convenient travel size and the fact that it comes with a ball head. I used with my Canon T2i and Tamron 18-270mm. I have been very hard on the tripod and it shows. The bubble level fell out, The threads on the center post have stripped so I took the extention permanently off. I just recently started having issues with it holding up the extra weight of my new lens over the small kit lens, but I found a fix for that. I ground off some of the metal stop with a Dremel and it allows it to close the ball head tighter. Problem solved and it allows me to continue using my trusty traveler.

              My son, a much better photographer than I, recommended that I purchase this tripod as I needed one for an upcoming trip. I received it quickly and it was easy for me to set up. I like the quick-release feature. It is also short enough (unexpanded) to fit in my backpack. The tripod adjusts to several heights. I have never used a tripod before and am able to learn quickly using this one from Benro.

                This is awesome, for the money of course. It's super cheap and it delivers. This is no Gitzo, but I do believe that this is one of the best products you can buy for the money.

                Most is just good enough, it's stable enough, it's built well enough.
                But it does something really well, it's super small, a lot smaller than I thought from the pictures, great for travelling. It's also super light, also great for travelling.

                So I guess my point is this is good for travelling if you're not super quirky, but at home I suggest you get something a little more rugged and stable.

                Awesome value!

                  I am an amateur who can't afford to buy a really expensive tripod. I needed one for some travel photos and so I picked this up.I use a T2i with a Tamron 17-50 which is around 4 lbs. The tripod feels sturdy enough. The legs are easy to adjust and the ball head works well in portrait or landscape. I have used this tripod outdoors for landscape shots then indoors for a still life for a drawing I am working on. In both cases it was fast and easy to use.I own two other tripods that were around this price from big box stores and this blows them out of the water. It stays where you put it. I hope to take it on many more adventures.

                      You will be hard pressed to find such a good quality tripod that is compact and as solid as this one. Ball head works great too, easy to change camera positions. Would not hesitate to get it again, just buy the $10.00 tripod bag with it.

                      I purchased this tripod as a light weight travel tripod, and it delivers with flying colors. the only thing is it does seem a little unstable when fully extended but its a give and take, again I got this for travel and hiking and wanted to keep the weight down, and I haven't had any problems while taking photos I just extend it just short of MAX. I also really like that you can position the legs to get right on top of the ground, over all for the price you can't go worng .

                        Easy to carry it, great height and affordable. Definitively, the best option when traveling for prosumers.

                            Haven't had a chance to really use it yet, aside from in the house. Planning on taking it to Europe with me next week. We will see how it hold up then!

                                  This tripod has all the features i wanted and was still fairly cheap. Very user friendly, although it did take me a bit to figure out how to detach the "QR plate" and it did not list how to do so in the instructions. Have been using the tripod for almost 3 months and no problems/issues yet. I am pleased with my purchase and I would buy it again.
