      I really like my Benro tripod. I want to love it, but there is one comment I must make. The panning motion has no control. I love the sticks and the height (Its exceptionally tall when fully extended) It's not super light which is great for video, but it's not bulky for the times when you need to go on location. I love the bag it comes with and the hex keys and the spike attachments. The tilt is adjustable and the light up bubble level has actually come in handy already (never thought I'd need it, but it's nice). My only gripe is the panning. In another review it was explained as "buttery" and I agree. It should have a little more resistance for smooth panning.
      I will be keeping this tripod because I love everything else about it. However, I might be looking to get a different head down the road. Hope this is helpful.

      I bought this tripod for a Panasonic GH4. Nice design BUT the quick release locking screw hits the bottom of the camera (probably any small DSLR) no matter how you shift the plate. YOU CAN"T TIGHTEN IT TO LOCK! Poor design flaw. Sorry to say that I'll have to return it unless Benro has some sort of work around.

      Comments about Benro A2573FS6 S6 Video Head and AL Flip Lock Legs Kit:

      I just needed a tripod with a fluid head. This tripod was great because I didn't have a large budget. There are a few things with the head like no pan drag. But I did enough research to know this before I bought. I liked the attention to detail on the head.

      Solid setup

      By Stefan

      from Minnesota

      Comments about Benro A2573FS6 S6 Video Head and AL Flip Lock Legs Kit:

      Got this for my GH1, and it is super solid. The knob for the quick release DOES hit the bottom of the camera BUT if you turn the knob only about a half turn, which is adequate to remove the QR plate, you should not have ANY problems of camera striking the knob.

      The legs are AWESOME and I have no qualms with them.

      The head was defected and made a weird sound at the top of the tilt, and it also seemed to have a weak tilt drag.

      B and H has been extremely nice in exchanging the head of my tripod, which is in the mail as I type this.

      I highly recomend the tripod kit, it's a great value. There is a catch, however:
      TEST IT BEFORE YOU TRUST IT.
      BH has amazing customer service if anything has issues.

      Comments about Benro A2573FS6 S6 Video Head and AL Flip Lock Legs Kit:

      I'm a video journalist, and I use this tripod for my one-man-band video work.
      It's a good size, heavy but not too bad, steady, and super smooth for pans and such.
      Only thing is that with my 5d/Tascam set up, I have issues with the plate and taking the camera off as quick as I wish I could.
      I always used manfrottos before that, and it's the first time I use a Benro - which was cheaper but also much smoother.

        This is a great tripod and fluid head combo. The legs provide a solid base and adjusts much taller than my 6 foot frame requires. The S6 head has variable drag on the tilt, but not on the pan. It has locks for both tilt and pan as well as an adjustable counterbalance knob.

              Comments about Benro A2573FS6 S6 Video Head and AL Flip Lock Legs Kit:

              I would give it 5 stars, except there are two issues. One is minor, but kind of a pain. The push button light for the level did not work when I received the tripod. I checked the battery to find that it was already corroded. It was also hot glued into the little circuit board thingy so i was a huge pain to switch out the battery. Once I switched the battery with a new one, it worked for about 5 seconds and then stopped all together.

              The second issue is that the pan function has little drag and therefore, if you are trying to do a very slow controlled a pan, it is very difficult and is jumpy. I would like to see more drag or a drag control function, it is way too buttery. Titling is fine, no issues there, very nice.

                I use it for video and long exposure photography. This tripod is sturdy and has many different knobs and toggles which gives you a lot of choice of movement. The head rotates on a ball point which is easy to control.

                It has a solid and sturdy build. Great choice for people on a budget

                  This tripod has many features found on high end brands. Very smooth pan/tilt. I think the mfg is over-rating it on the weight capacity though. I'd knock off a good 4 lbs on it's capacity. Pan drag would be nice too.
