Benro TMA48CXL overview

  • 1Description

Support up to 44.1 lb worth of gear with the TMA48CXL Extra Long Series 4 Mach3 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Benro. Made from 9-layer carbon fiber, the 4-section legs are secured via twist locks and extend to a maximum height of 82.9". The center column can be replaced with the included short column to allow the tripod to reach a minimum height of 15.9". The rubber feet can be swapped out for metal spikes so that the tripod can be used on hard surfaces, such as ice, or soft surfaces, like carpeting or a lawn. A ballast hook on the center column allows for the addition of stabilizing weight, and the included carrying case protects the tripod during transport. A 3/8"-16 threaded stud on the mounting platform lets you attach a head of your choice.

    Benro TMA48CXL reviews

    TMA48CXL Extra Long Series 4 Mach3 Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Thick Tall & Sturdy Just over a week now and quite impressed with the Benro beast. Big thick tall & sturdy is my best discription. I matched it with RRS BH-55 Ball head, its quite the set up for just under a grand. Both fit in the tripod case nicely. Dampens vibrations quickly and efficiently with a Nikon D500/Nikkor 200-500mm mounted. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this tripod to anyone looking for a taller bigger tripod. I've needed extra length legs for crazy landscape set ups and this will certainly fit the bill. With the short center column that comes with it, sets ups of 6 inches or so are easily done. First impressions are top notch!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect... for me. I purchased this particular tripod for two reasons. First, I knew I would be lugging it around so I wanted the weight to be as light as possible while giving me what I need in a tripod. Second, at 6'2" I hate having to stoop to use a tripod that is fully extended. That is not an issue with this tripod as when fully extended I can just barely reach the camera. I'm 40 so I don't expect another growth spurt meaning this tripod should last me a very long time! It is well made with legs that adjust smoothly and a solid head mounting plate. It comes with several accessories such as spikes for dirt and a nice padded bag. While not horribly cheap I think it is a good investment for those who need a taller option.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent RRS or Gitzo Alternative My search for a new tripod began when I needed to gain height over my existing tripod. Tripods in general are also meant to last forever, if you take care of them. So, a bit skeptical of the price point at first, since we're made to believe a good tripod costs $1000+, I figured it wouldn't hurt as much to spend < $500 now and give this guy a shot. Anyway, my ol'Trusty-Manfrotto only extends to under 6ft, and I prefer to not extend the center column too high, for reasons of stability for long exposure architectural or landscape photography. This Benro reaches much higher than most tripods on the market, and it's incredibility versatile. One of the legs is removable for use as a monopod. The legs angle out pretty wide for lower angles, and acrobatic balancing on uneven surfaces. Being carbon fiber, I worry about the weight not holding the tripod sturdy in high winds, but, there are hooks to hang a bag in place, and I've picked up a stone bag that secures to the legs to add more support. Also, with a leveling base and bullhead mounted on top, this beast reaches well over 87 high. Making for a great advantage over renting lifts, dragging around tall ladders, or standing on top of cars to get a higher field of view - I do bring a short step ladder along so I can make adjustments to the camera, but no need for anything over 4ft to get me up there. I'd recommend this for anyone looking for height, stability, carbon fiber, versatility, good craftsmanship, and for anyone who doesn't want to spend $1000+ on a set of sticks. Even if this lasts 10 years and I have to replace it for whatever reason, it'll have been worth it to hold onto the other $400+ now and get to work without feeling like I was taken for a ride by RRS or Gitzo.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best carbon fiber tall tripod ever! Easy to extend, really tall and stable. Beautiful quality, comes with a padded case, what else do you need? Very happy with the purchase!
    Date published: 2017-10-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tall and sturdy,  Price is right. Tall and sturdy nine layer carbon fiber. One of the tallest.  It does weigh in a bit, especially with the Benro B5 Ball Head I have on it, but nicely made altogether. Smoothly operating legs (4 section).  Like gluing your camera to a rock-steady).  Bought on sale during the Photo Show.  Some are lighter or more fancy, but for the price, this Benro is hard to beat! You probably wont want to take it back -backing but for commercial work, it should be great.  Ill be taking a small ladder to take advantage of the hight.  (Note.  Have only had a couple weeks)
