  • Aluminum Alloy Construction
  • Dual Action Ball Head
  • Twist-lock Anti-Rotation Legs

The A1692TB0 Travel Angel II Triple Transfunctional Aluminum Tripod Kit from Benro is a multi-functional camera support system that features aluminum alloy tripod legs and a dual action ball head. It can convert into a full size monopod, a compact monopod and a walking stick with wooden knob and integrated compass. With a maximum load capacity of 17.6 lb, the tripod can support most any camera, including a full size DSLR. Five-section, anti-rotation legs with rubberized twist locks offer fast set up and their weather-resistant design maintains a secure adjustment. The maximum height with the center column extended is 61.6". The legs can be independently locked into place at three different angles for shooting on uneven surfaces and an included short center column allows for ground-level low-angle shooting.

This Travel Angel II Kit includes a B0 Double Action Ball Head with PU-50 Arca-Swiss quick release plate. Made from magnesium alloy components the ball head has separate pan and position control and a separate drag adjustment control knob. The head has an integrated bubble level.

By removing the center column of the tripod and screwing it into one of the legs, the Travel Angel II can convert from a tripod into a full-size monopod and by removing the ball head and installing the included wooden knob with integrated compass and hand strap, it becomes a walking stick. Both rubber feet and stainless steel spiked feet are included and can be screwed into the legs for use on varying surfaces.

The tripod legs can be inverted and folded back 180º for a more compact, easy-to-carry system that protects the head during transport. A foam grip on one leg offers a comfortable and warm place to hold the tripod and a carry bag with shoulder strap is included.

Precision Matched B0 Ball Head
Includes the dual action, heavy duty B0 Ball Head with Arca-Swiss compatible quick release plate and separate drag adjustment and lock knobs.
Transfunctional Design
Removable leg and center column screw together to convert from tripod to full-size monopod without the need for tools.
Walking Stick
Convertible to a walking stick with fine grain wooden knob, compass and hand strap. Walking stick conversion can also be completed without tools.
Compact Fold-Up Leg Design
The tripod legs can be inverted and folded back 180° for a compact, easy-to-carry system.
Multi-Position Leg Angles
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, with the included short center column.
Rubber Lock Grips with Anti-Rotation Leg System
Rubberized locking grips combined with anti-rotation legs enable fast set-up. Weather and dust-resistant construction keeps the twist-locks clean, stable and functioning properly.
Stainless Steel Spike or Rubber Feet
Tripod comes equipped with screw-in rubber feet and screw-in stainless steel spiked feet.
Center-Column Hook
A hook, located on the bottom of the center-column, allows you to hang additional weight from the tripod's center of gravity for increased stability.
Comfortable Foam Grip
A thick layer of closed-cell nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) provides a comfortable yet firm grip when carrying your tripod.
Carry Case with Shoulder Strap
An included, durable case with strap provides protection and transport for your tripod and head.

      I used this tripod on a recient trip to the rain forest with a group. Tripod was excellent but took a bit of time to set up. Didn't have much time as I was in a group tour but got it done. Need to use the furnished wrench to tighten camera mount, have this part done before heading out.

      I bought this for a friend who wanted a decent tripod at a good price. It is hard to expect too many things at this price point, however here is a short analysis.Pros.1. Folds to a compact size.2. Converts to a monopod quite easily. Monopod is stable.3. The sticks itself have good build quality.4. Comes with a case.Cons.1. There is a little bit of play in the head, which becomes apparent during close-up shots. Although the additional tightening screw does help.2. The tripod becomes clearly less stable when you open the bottom most leg (it is very thin) - but that is what you sacrifice for the size at this price point.3. A sturdier, larger head will be a nice improvement.

      One little problem

      By John

      from Orange, CA

      Comments about Benro A1692TB0 Travel Angel II Triple Transfunctional Aluminum Tripod Kit:

      Received my tripod and set it up right away. It was great, except that when I removed the center column I could not easily get it into it's ring again. It must be slid along a groove into the stem, and that stem/ring (or whatever it's called) is lined with (I think) a plastic sleeve.) The sleeve slides up and down within the ring, and must be manipulated into one particular position to successfully receive the center column. To me, this is awkward and difficult to manipulate.

      The rep and B&H suggested this shouldn't happen and I'd be welcome to send the tripod back. I did. No hassle from B&H. They were more than helpful.

      Received the second tripod yesterday. It has the same problem, and I won't return it again. Just know that this seems to be a flaw in the construction of the tripod. For me, this was not a deal breaker, as the rest of the tripod tests out just fine.

                This is a very compact tripod which is great for air travel and hiking. It is very sturdy and holds my Nikon D800 with 24/120MM lens or 70/300MM lens easily. The conversion of one leg to a monopod is a handy feature. I would encourage anyone looking for a compact, sturdy, lightweight tripod to consider it.

                    How can anyone not like this tripod, wanted a nice tripod and then a monopod and then I researched upon this one. It has everything, extreme quality, compactness, fluid movement and holds twice the weight of most travel tripods, the head is flawless as well as the function. Benro's are well worth the money for what you get in a tripod/monopod package, even comes with a top quality case and weight hook.

                        Bought this tripod chiefly for flying to vacation spots and then hiking to panoramic vistas. So I wanted something that was compact, relatively light, vet sturdy in the field. I like the pan-lock on the head and the head seems very sturdy. Only negative is that I can't see the bubble level when the camera is on the tripod, so I bought one of the little hot shoe levels to solve the problem. Would be nicer if it weighed a little less, but the lighter tripods seemed either far less sturdy, lacked the pan-lock, or were much more expensive.

                              A very compact yet sturdy tripod. Fits easily into travel gear.
                              Monopod adaptation is very useful.
