Need some solid support? The Benro A-0680 Travel Angel Aluminum Tripod with BH-00 Ballhead is a professional-quality tripod with lightweight, high-quality aluminum alloy legs for top performance. 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.

This Travel Angel tripod is easy to carry, so you'll have it with you at all times. Travel Angel's unique 180° foldover design allows it to be collapsed into a very compact size that can easily fit into backpacks or luggage. When you need quick set-up, excellent maximum height and a rigid, stable support,  the Travel Angel is an impressive performer.

This tripod also features 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.

The included BH00 Ballhead is a lightweight (6.35 oz/0.18 kg), single-action head with a snap-in quick release system, single knob adjustment, and an integral level.

4-section legs.
Includes single action ball head to match the size of the tripod; with a calibrated panning base, locked down by a single lock-down lever, and a dual quick release locking system.
Offers two leg-angle settings to accommodate uneven terrain or awkward shooting situations.
Anti-twist leg sections and a grooved center column make setup and breakdown quick and easy.
Removable rubber and stainless steel spike feet (optional) provide a secure grip both indoors and outdoors
Retractable spring-loaded hook can be used to add stability with a sand bag or equipment bag

      This tripod is so light and small that it can easily go into your carry-on luggage. I brought it along my trip to Disney World and I didn't even realize that I was carrying it because of it's lightness. Though light, it's pretty stable for my D90 and Sigma 18-250mm lens. I would really recommend this for a travel tripod.

      Comments about Benro A-0680 Travel Angel Aluminum Tripod with BH-00 Ballhead:

      The tripod comes with a nice carrying case and is as light and compact as expected. The lack of height isn't an issue to me either. However, the BH-00 ballhead is just mediocre. I mean, it does the job just fine, but the level in it is pretty useless and it's a very basic ballhead. It'll do the job for now.

          This is a great lightweight travel tripod. It is very compact and it comes with a padded carry case. It is not meant for heavy duty equipment, but it does a good job in almost all occasions.

            Comments about Benro A-0680 Travel Angel Aluminum Tripod with BH-00 Ballhead:

            Great travel tripod. Supports a Nikon D7000 & medium zoom. Decent single action ballhead with multi-positioning lock. Folds down to about 15 inches. My only grip would be the overall height, but what can you expect from a small compact unit. This one is a bit cheaper than another brand that I bought and returned, which was somewhat frail & flimsy.

              Comments about Benro A-0680 Travel Angel Aluminum Tripod with BH-00 Ballhead:

              This little guy is what I was looking for in a travel tripod. Folds up to about 15 inches due to the 180 degree folding legs. Stout enough to support my Nikon D7000 with a Tamron 17-50mm or 18-105 Nikon lense. I had tried another brand which cost more than the Benro, but the other was really flimsy and frail. My only gripe would be the somewhat short overall height when set up only if I'm in a crowded area. But this is expected with such a small tripod anyway. Comes with interchangeable feet (rubber & spike) and an accessory wrench. Comes with a single action ballhead, while not the heaviest-duty, it does a good job. I like the multi positioning lock too.

                      I needed a light compact tripod for night photography to support a small Canon G11. It's rated for 5lb's so it's very stable,goes down low and high enough to reach eye level. I was surprised to see it also came with a case.

                      My only criticism is that the release lever was stiff out of the box. I had to use a screw driver to loosen it up. Other then that I have no complaints.

                        This tripod is great if your a hiker like me. I've been looking for a while and I'm glad i found this one. It sturdy enough for my purposes and light enough to lug around on my rucksack, i love the way it folds up small. I'm short so i ordered the smallest one, if you have a little more height on you i would definitely recommend the larger one.

                            This tripod is so light and small that it can easily go into your carry-on luggage. I brought it along my trip to Disney World and I didn't even realize that I was carrying it because of it's lightness. Though light, it's pretty stable for my D90 and Sigma 18-250mm lens. I would really recommend this for a travel tripod.
