The Benro Travel Flat A0190T 5-Section Aluminum Tripod is a solid support for a DSLR or point & shoot camera, with a maximum load capacity of 13.2 lb. The tripod features a two-section center column that can be removed for low-to-the-ground shooting: Simply attach the head directly to the 3/8"-16 screw of the magnesium-alloy chassis.

With the center column attached and extended, the tripod reaches a maximum height of 63.8". The non-rotating leg design ensures that you can set up the tripod quickly and easily at a moment's notice.

When it's time to fold up, the lightweight aluminum legs of the A0190T fold down flat – somewhat like three fingers on your hand – thanks to an innovative chassis design. The included custom carry case snugly fits the 16.1" folded tripod & center column, with room for a head (not included). For travelers and campers, this compactness can make all the difference.

        Comments about Benro Travel Flat A0190T 5-Section Aluminum Tripod:

        Perfect fit for my suitcase. Headed to Italy to take those great Tuscan landscapes and Venitian archetexture. Tripod is lightweight, sturdy and folds short and flat for my suitcase while extending tall enough for my 6ft,2in shooting comfort. Wish it had flip locks instead of twist locks on the legs. Just a personal preference. Caution the screw that accepts a ballhead is 3/8" it wont accept a head expecting a 1/4" screw

          Comments about Benro Travel Flat A0190T 5-Section Aluminum Tripod:

          Performs as described; however, with camera weights over 8 lbs., the bottoms extension legs wobble too much. I try to use it without extending the bottom section ... much sturdier! It is eassy to carry and packs well.

          I bought this to fit in my suitcase and it does. Although not as stable as a normal tripod, it is very useful for traveling. I would not use it as my primary tripod, but it certainly fits my needs well.

          Comments about Benro Travel Flat A0190T 5-Section Aluminum Tripod:

          It is a very good price and size,what I really wanted,BUT it says Load Capacity 13.2 lb (6 kg),which is not ,its not very steady for anything above 1.5-2.0 kg,
          The 5th section is very thin and wobbly ,
          If you are looking for something safe,go for a better tripod and save your gears from falling.

            The perfect travel tripod!

              Comments about Benro Travel Flat A0190T 5-Section Aluminum Tripod:

              This is the perfect travel tripod! I have a Manfrotto 190CX3 which fold down to 21", and I could (barely) fit it inside my hand carry luggage, but take up quite a bit of space due to it's triangle shape. This Benro Travel Flat? Fold down to 16" and FLAT! Easily fit inside any hand carrier and doesn't take up a lot of space. And it even fit perfectly on my Tamrac backpack's tripod holder too & doesn't look/feel out of proportion like my 190CX3 (which looks like I have an antenna at my back).

              The only CON is (as expected!), it's NOT the most sturdiness tripod out there! I didn't even bother to use the last (skinny!) section. And with the center column part, it's more than tall enough for me & strong enough (remember I didn't use the last section of the leg!).

              And it's very lightweight too. I save the $$ for this Aluminum version rather than pay 3x the price of a Carbon Fiber version!

              At the end, it's a really great traveler's tripod for those who travel a lot and would like to stuff it inside a hand carrier. I'm really surprised nobody else thought about it?!

                Comments about Benro Travel Flat A0190T 5-Section Aluminum Tripod:

                This is a great travel tripod in my opinion. The flat design is a great innovation and you can easily fold and carry it in your shoulder bag. The tripod construction is excellent (Magnesium-Aluminium) and is extremely stable even when fully extended.This is a high quality product and even the carrying bag included is very good. I just wish one of the leg had the rubberized cushion to hold it during the freezing winter.

                This is my first Benro product and I will wholeheartedly recommend this to anybody looking for a lightweight but high quality tripod.Just ensure you have a compatible ball-head along with this and you are good for a very long time.
