Benro Mach3 TMA28A Reviews

Super tripod for the money

By Robert

I use this tripod in my shop for on line product pictures. In the two years I have had it I have taken a few thousand pictures with it. It is still, as tight and sturdy as it was when new. I highly recommend it.

Nice Unit Without Breaking The Bank

I have old film cameras that are weighty plus a Pentax 645z, which is no light weight. This tripod is surprisingly stable at full extension. I am over 6ft and must lower it to see the viewfinder. The build quality is very good, and the adjustments are smooth and assuring.

We'll see

Haven't used it yet but the build looks and feels great. Seems very sturdy. Will put it to the test once the world gets back to normal and I finally get all the equipment I'm going to put on it. Happy with it so far but like my heading, we'll see.

Tripod for all my needs!

I was impressed by this Benro tripod right out of the box with it's blue carrying case with ample pockets and blue satchel bag for protection. The legs are sturdy; one detaches to become a monopod; the 3/8 mounting screw flips over into 1/4; the blue locking ring keeps center post secure; and the extra , shorter post allows for near-ground level shooting. Sure there are much more expensive Benro models, and other brands to get lighter, sturdier, and higher but this is a great all-purpose tripod for $165.

Loving the tripod

It is heavy enough to be solid, but light enough to carry. Solid unit. Came with carry case and holding bag. Feet tend to spin off during travel and usage. I lot two in the snow. Benro sent me free feet to replace and the service was excellent. When I got the new feet, I put a rubber band next to the rubber feet and then screwed them in. Rubber bands form the function of a washer lock while still being able to unscrew them for replacement.

Sturdy, smooth and though!

I love this tripod. I'm planning on purchasing more heads for it. I've never felt this tripod feel unsteady, or lose. It feels solid, is easily adjusted to match uneven terrain and is sufficiently light. I think it's a great value for the price and comes with a nice case.

Stupendous Deal!

Stupendous Deal! Top quality, and I prefer the extra weight over the carbon fiber version, especially for video. I use a komodo fluid head with this tripod .

I want to attach the monopod leg to an Oben ...

I want to attach the monopod leg to an Oben leveling head but the female receptor on the head is either 3/8" or 1/4" - much too small to accept the large male screw on the monopod leg. What's the fix?
Asked by: Tate
The Oben LH-2510 Leveling Base Head can fit the top of the monopod leg of the TMA28A, as the base plate of the tripod can be removed and added to it.
