Benro A38FD overview

  • 1Description

Reap the benefits of a monopod with the stability of a tripod using the Benro A38FD Series 3 Aluminum Monopod with 3-Leg Locking Base. Able to hold up to 39.7 lb and extend to 61", the A38FD Series 3 is a versatile camera support thanks to its base which provides three solid points of contact with the ground. The base acts like a mini tripod, and its ball joint allows you to smoothly pan and tilt your camera. If using a pan head on the monopod, the base's ball joint can be locked so that you can pan with the head independently, or you can replace the base with the included rubber foot. The four leg sections are secured by flip locks, and it folds down to 21.3" for transport.

    Benro A38FD reviews

    A38FD Series 3 Aluminum Monopod with 3-Leg Locking Base is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad, but have some problems A38FD is better then Manfrotto 560B-1, because lowerst segment is thicker in A38FD. That is why A38FD is more stable. Now I'm not afraid to lift monopod for high angle shots and hold itfor the lower segment. The only bad thing I don't like about A38FD, that legs are not fixed when folded and ball head at the bottom of the monopod is able to rotate. So when you walking and carry monopod in horizontal position, legs will unfold and may catch your or smb's legs. After leg catching it will unfold till the end and become fixed in unfolded position. This is annoying. Manfrotto monopod does not have those problems, because legs are fixed in folded and unfolded position.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's... ok I have had this now for 8 months. used it on several occasions. For the most part, it does the monopod just as good as any. The reason I bought this one was for the three leg foot. I wanted just a little added stability and it does give me that. However and this for me is why it gets only two stars. The legs when stored in the up position flop about, they drop down and get in the way. Its down right annoying how they flop about. I use a rubberband to hold them up but they should have a positive lock in the up position.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a smaller Camera For smaller cameras I think this would be a nice addition. I used it for both a gopro and a dslr. the first was good and stable and even with a mic attached stayed very well in place. the DSLR on the other hand was a little wobbly. The legs on the base of the Monopod only clip in to a slot. This doesnt allow you to tighten the legs to make the monopod more secure. the material is nice and light and the clips on the post are very secure and easy to use. I would recommend this stand, though if youre using the feet to steady the stand then you wont be able to use a very large camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for I have a Manfrotto tri-pod that I use for wedding photography and for our photo booth business. I still use an open air photo booth style and have not converted to a shell that holds all of my equipment. That means I use my tripod quite often for the photo booth. The tripod takes up more space and gets in my way so I was trying to find something that would make it easier, take less room, and also be lighter to pack. I really wanted to find something so I didn't have to make that jump into buying an expensive photo booth shell. I found this monopod and when I received it, it was perfect for what I needed it for. It was strong enough to hold my camera and yet compact enough to place right behind my HP desktop. It is perfect for my photo booth set up. Haven't had any issues with it at all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from More stable than a regular monopod I do a lot of nature photography, so I'm out walking quite a lot with my camera, and since I can't hold the camera steady enough, I have to have a monopod. Even with one, I've had some trouble with keeping the monopod from slightly shaking, but even that slight disturbace is enough to ruin a shot. The Benro Monopod with the 3-leg locking base gives me much more steadiness and control over the camera. It's a bit heavier than my older monopod without the 3 leg base, but not enough to be a problem. Overall, I like the monopod very much. I bought it to help stability, and it does that quite well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Is Something That I Needed For A Long time Thus far, its legs have not just popped down on me like one of the other viewer had mentioned here. The finish is very nice and it has smooth action in opening and closing the monopod, or, half tripod. The three little legs have given me that much more support I wanted. I have an older Manfratto monopod that has a similar attachment built of metal hidden and when needed, I have to unscrew it and take it out of its base. This new Benro definitely is a better design than my old Manfratto.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted Bought to use with mirrorless digital camera. Solid construction, quick setup. Reversible screw with supplied wrench supports 3/8-16 or 1/4-20 thread. Also sometimes use as reflector support, while shooting handheld, by attaching fold-up reflector like Westcott 313 to monopod wrist strap with clothespin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from steady shots I wanted a portable stand for my D7100 and decided to get this monopod. It is well built and I really like the extra stability the 3 legs gives. I bought an Oben 3-way head for it but really don't need it with the flexibility this monopod offers. I used it to shoot a nephew's school band performance at their HS football game and it was rock steady. For the price, this delivers.
