    Benro Aero4 reviews

    Aero 4 Video Travel Angel Tripod Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 59.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price This is a great, versatile tripod for the price. I got it to use with my Canon 5D and C300. I have some big Manfrotto tripods also, but I actually prefer this one since I'm a smaller female and many professional tripods are heavy and hard to use for me. This is much lighter and easy to use, and it's nice that I can take it on airplanes. The panning head is smooth and works well for both video and photo. I wouldn't necessarily want to set up a camera and walk away, though, because I feel like it could easily get knocked over if bumped. Also, it's hard to get used to the legs because they move so freely, but once you do, it's really handy.Overall though I really love this! It's great for such a low price!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent and compact, but not a fluid head! Been using this for about a year now as a handy travel tripod for a b-camera shooting video. Overall, it's nice an compact, though it weighs more than I'd like for something this size. Decently sturdy for what it is, and the monopod feature is pretty cool. When I purchased this, it was advertised as having a fluid head. This is not true. The TILT function is dampened, but the PAN function is not at all. So you can get smooth tilting, but panning is a no-go. You have a nut that you tighten, so either you are locked off or running free and it's quite loose as far as panning goes. That has been the most disappointing feature.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Tripod I purchased this last minute before traveling out of the country to use with my Canon C100, rather than carry my standard tripod. I was a little concerned about not having the support and fluid movement I wanted, but figured it was worth the risk to have something so compact and lightweight. I was extremely pleased with the quality for the price. The flexibility and compactness is tremendous. The support of the frame and movement of the head, though not what you'd expect from a high end set of sticks, it is a great alternative to traveling with a bulky, heavy case. I highly recommend this for smaller cameras and those needing to travel lightly. You'd be pleased.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for its intended purpose You won't be doing any professional work with this tripod.� The Aero 4 is marketed as a travel tripod, i.e., take it with you on vacation and use it with your high-end camcorder or DSLR.� That is how I use it.� As far as the complaints of others regarding the S4 fluid head, well, I am satisfied with it and it works just fine for me.� The Aero 4 fits into an airline carry-on just fine with the fluid head removed (see photo).� If you are like I was, and have already watched all the Aero 2/Aero 4 review and comparison videos on Youtube, and are still undecided between the Aero 2 and Aero 4, my recommendation is to buy the Aero 4.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had High Hopes But Not Durable And Not Worth The Money I am an action sports photographer and videographer and I also do some studio work. I originally purchased this tripod kit for it's apparent compactness and alleged functionality and durability. The tripod worked great the first day I used it and great again on the second day. It is easy to set up, levels fast, and pans smooth. Then on day three in the middle of shooting I went to extend the lowest extension of one of the legs and the thing broke off in my hand. I was shocked, it happened so quickly that I thought the legs were supposed to come out with such little effort, but when I went to put the leg back in place it would not take. Perplexed I stood back for a moment and there on the ground in front of me were two pieces of thin plastic snapped in half. After putting a halt on the shoot so I could figure out how to remedy the problem (which required me to not extend any of the lowest leg extensions and to have the tripod resting only on the tube of the now broken leg) I found that all of the intersections of this tripod are made with this same cheap plastic. I was upset but I was also in the middle of a busy shooting season so I figured I could still use the tripod and just not be able to extend the lowest section of the legs. This worked for three shoots (or roughly two weeks) until the plastic failed again on a different part of the tripod. The bushing (a larger piece of cheap plastic) that holds the head tube in place, also broke. The tripod head and tube pulled right out as easily as the first broken leg had, and now the tripod head would not go back in. This was also in the middle of a shoot. Anyone who gets paid to shoot photo or video knows how embarrassing and frustrating it is when your gear breaks or malfunctions in the midst of a shoot. The whole concept of professionalism comes crashing down and regardless of the dollar amount it takes to fix the gear, the reputational damage can be far worse. This tripod caused this to happen to me twice within two months of my purchase. Thus, based on my experience PURCHASING THIS TRIPOD IS A HUGE MISTAKE, it is held together with cheap plastic components and it is only a matter of time before the whole thing disintegrates as it did to me in the heat of the moment. I have been using Manfrotto Tripods for years and though the ones I own are not the light or most compact, they do work and they don't just break. I hope Benro takes note and improves the construction of their tripods, the design is sleek and the out-of-the-box functionality is great unfortunately it's the third day out of the box that things really start to go down hill.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good with one small issue. overall love this tripod. very well built, very nice fluid head. get's nice and tall. Appreciate the little travel bag. The one small problem, however, is that the screw down for the quick release plate is positioned in such a way that the camera actually blocks the path in order to tighten it all the way. I had to actually turn the camera (which loosens the bottom tightening screw) in order to tighten it, then turn the camera back. Seems though, that this screw may be able to be repositioned, but I haven't tried that yet, and it seems odd to have to modify a brand-new item. But likely that will fix it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Legs OK, but the fluid head is not I am a professional and owner of a Pro Sachtler tripod with a very expensive fluid head. It is awesomely, well built and reliable. Of course you pay for that quality. I did not expect the Benro head to come close but hoped it would support my GH4 as a travel tripod. The legs are pretty well built, light (for aluminum) and when the center post is removed, the entire tripod can fit in a carry-on bag with a modest amount of clothes and stuff. I like the leveling center post too. The head felt smooth on both tilt and pan when no camera was mounted. The GH4 with very small rails, matte box and Tamron 11-16mm with a Metabones adaptor, could not be controled smoothly. Bummer. Half way tempted to keep the legs and get a better fluid head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Newbee videographer Got my first freelance gig shooting B-roll for a promo video and wanted to have a tripod that would be compact, portable but still offer professional looking pans. I was very impressed with all these features of the Aero 4. Especially with the smoothness of the panning. However being new at this game I wondered how smooth is fluid supposed to feel. Well the lead camera guy on the job asked to try the Aero 4 with his camera... he gave me his stick to use and I found it rough and jumpy compared to the Aero. Once I got the Aero back, I really noticed a huge difference. I am very happy with the Aero 4 and for what it's worth, I would recommend it to an amateur or professional.
