Benro A48FD overview

  • 1Description

Reap the benefits of a monopod with the stability of a tripod using the Benro A48FD Series 4 Aluminum Monopod with 3-Leg Locking Base. Able to hold up to 44.1 lb and extend to 64.6", the A48FD Series 4 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 22" for transport.

    Benro A48FD reviews

    A48FD Series 4 Aluminum Monopod with 3-Leg Locking Base is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a good one Used it with my Canon 5D mark III with the 70-200mm and it works great. The legs are able to lock quick for adjustment and as well as the feet. The twist to tighten monopods are not as quick and if your in a rush for a shot and don't tighten the leg locks good you could miss the shot. Not with this one. I can even use my Sony A7sII and stand the monopod up with no hands. The bottom can get pretty stiff. Also it comes with a changeable spike for the bottom foot, works great on the football field.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Great Option First, because it was one of the things that made me hesitate with this vs the Manfrotto or the Sirui - I've had no issues with the legs unfolding when I didn't want them to as some others have noted. Because others have said the same as me, perhaps Benro tweaked their design on newer versions. It isn't that they lock in place, they just don't fall down or feel loose or flop around. Secondly, and this was perhaps the most important consideration on my part vs the Sirui - flip locks vs turned knobs. It's actually ridiculous to me that something as evolved as the Sirui doesn't have flip locks because it's at the heart of a monopod like this, the ability to set it up instantly, and adjust it instantly. Bottom line: The Benro is really well made and solid so far. It collapses to make a very smal unit to carry. It sets up really quickly and feels great to use. We do a lot of R&G work for film and video, sports and documentaries and after using this on one shoot I'm simply amazed that I didn't get one of these a long tme ago. Also I put a Manfrotto 701 head on it without the arm and that really makes this work (not a big fan of the Benro heads at all). But without the arm, which is the only way I'd ever use it, and with the base locked, I can float the camera in any direction with both the pan and tilt controls open and it's kind of an ideal cross between a tripod and a shoulder held rig. For the money, just get one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Legged monopod This sturdy monopod is ideal for my 500 mm and camera. The base does not slip as I try to focus. I can now lock the pod in place and take better shots with my remote, no camera shake. I find the the structure and quality far exceeds what I expected at this price. Yes, it weighs more than others, but that adds to the durability. I highly recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This will get lots of use I very much like this monopod. It is well built, sturdy, compact and at a price that doesn't break the bank. I have had it 2 weeks and it has gotten almost daily use on my nature walks - so much lighter and easier to use than a tripod for what I am doing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for on the go photographers We use this mono-pod for our real estate photography. It has served us well for two years and has bat an eyelid. It's strong and professionally built and can handle anything you throw at it. Perfect for fast paced shooting as it packs down and pack up super quick. It's even possible to shoot slower shutter speeds which is great. Highly recommended for anyone looking for an affordable all in one mono-pod. No bad comments on this one!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from great unit... �but... Price and utility wise this is a brilliant unit. �However within a few hours of relatively light use one of the spring mounts on one tripod leg had broken, necessitating slow hand manipulation. � It is still functional and I love the practicality, but the disfunction has left a bad taste.
