Benro A38TD overview

  • 1Description

Reap the benefits of a monopod with the stability of a tripod using the Benro A38TD Series 3 Aluminum Monopod with 3-Leg Locking Base. Able to hold up to 39.7 lb and extend to 64", the A38TD 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 twist locks, and it folds down to 21.3" for transport.

    Benro A38TD reviews

    A38TD Series 3 Aluminum Monopod with 3-Leg Locking Base is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Monopod really stands on its own This is my send Benro Monopod. The first one met an early end when the metal of locking clamp broke down the middle. I am a little rough on my gear as a run and gun wedding videographer, so these things happen. What I love most about this new version is the locking ball on the base. There is a turn lock that allows you to adjust whether or not you can tilt the whole monopod. When I locked it off to keep it straight up and down, it was able to hold my GH3 on its own. Now, I wouldn't walk away from it, but since it is basically able to balance on its own, it allowed me to focus more on the camera operation and less on making sure the camera wasn't falling over. Huge Benro fan. I think their version is far better than the more expensive Manfrotto version which I have also owned.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well built -- almost. Two problems. The little tripod leg can't be properly screwed on tightly enough. I had to drill and tap set screws to make it work. The little tripod legs should be spring loaded so they don't flop around when folded up. Other than that it's good value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value Light weight and well made, this monopod comes with fold-out feet that can be unscrewed and replaced with a single rubber foot. I am hesitant to use it with a long telephone lens (500mm zoom) only because of the lens' balance and weight. I probably should have purchased the next one up which has better capacity. Also, I have found that the 3-leg base tends to become loose and needs to be screwed back into the bottom post occasionally.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Monopod to Have. Bought this monopod to use with my DSLR to shoot video clips at a wedding. I am very satisfied with the results I got with it. It is stardy, stable, and got an ample arm extension. To get the maximum use out it, a suitable ball head is needed. One minor issue I had with it is slight difficulty loosening and tighting the nuts that secure the telescopic arms. I would recommend it to others.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Monopod that acts like a tripod I've used it about four times in the week I've had it and it's fantastic. The feet give it the stability of a tripod but is so much easier to set up and use. I have a friend who has a similar monopod that cost more than twice as much and this one performs just as nicely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile monopod! I ordered this unit based on the previous feedback from buyers and I wasn't disappointed when I put it to use. Love the folding base that allows for the extra stability. The unit is lightweight, simple to attach, easy to extend and retract. Solid piece of machinery that I highly recommend others in hunt for a monopod to try out!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Sturdy and Well Built For the price, I wasn’t expecting too much before this arrived. Surprisingly, this thing is very sturdy and well built. This could easily sell for $149. Reversible 3/8” or 1/4-20” screw at the head do you can use any camera, ball head, or accessory. Stands very sturdy on its own. I still use a light sandbag when outside just to be safe but probably don’t really need it. Solid construction and should last for several years.
