Support up to 22 lb with the FTA28AB1 Travel Angel Series 2 Aluminum Tripod and the B1 Ball Head. This compact tripod features reverse-folding legs that enable the tripod to fold down to 24", which combined with its 4.6 lb weight makes this a suitable tripod for travel. When the 4-section twist-lock legs are fully extended the FTA28AB1 reaches a height of 62.8". One of the legs can be removed and connected to the center column to create a monopod for added versatility.

The legs are made from aluminum alloy for minimizing weight without sacrificing strength. To add stability, the rapid center column has a ballast hook on the bottom so that you can hang a stabilizing weight such as a heavy bag or case. Rubber feet and stainless steel spikes let you use the tripod on a variety of surfaces such as grass, ice, or wooden and tile floors. A dust cover and a carrying case with a shoulder strap are included to protect the legs when not in use.

The included B1 ball head has separate pan and ball locks, and an Arca-type compatible clamp with a quick-release plate. A 90° notch lets you quickly change your camera to portrait orientation, and an integrated bull's eye bubble level helps maintain horizontal alignment. The base of the head connects to a tripod or monopod via a 3/8"-16 thread and the included plate provides a 1/4"-20 camera mount.

    FTA28AB1 Travel Angel Series 2 Aluminum Tripod with B1 Ball Head is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid!! I have long wanted to upgrade my tripod and after a lot of research, I decided that a Benro travel Angel II would best fit my type of photography and my continuous need to shoot on the go. I wanted a tripod with three leg sections, thick, that could support 20lbs and fit in my carry-on luggage. Check, check and check! It's what I expected and more. Super sturdy and well made, it's re-assuring. This tripod is nothing like the cheapo-branded tripods out there. B&H was especially helping in allowing me the freedom to make in-store comparisons and the Benro FTA28AB1 is unmatched.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and Steady This is a well built steady tripod. It folds compactly enough to fit onto my Lowepro slingshot 250. Converts easily to a mono-pod. I tried lighter models from other brands but their spindly legs did not do the job

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tripod I had been looking for a replacement for my old Slik U212 for a while and was hesitant to switch to a ball head.� After talking to a professional nature photographer in Yosemite who swore by the Benro, I decided to make the switch.� It is a great tripod, sturdy and well built.� I also like the release system on the mounting plate.� It is quite simple to use.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok I have not gotten a chance to use much, it seems sturdy and whatnot but the first time I went to use it to video a funeral memorial one of the legs fell out when I was extending them and I ended up holding my camera. I was able to fix the leg....after the fact.
