Benro FTA18AB0 Tripod with B0 Ball Head Overview

Support up to 17.6 lb with the FTA18AB0 Travel Angel Series 1 Aluminum Tripod and the B0 Ball Head. This compact tripod features reverse-folding legs that enable the tripod to fold down to 22.6", which combined with its 3.9 lb weight makes this a suitable tripod for travel. When the 4-section twist-lock legs are fully extended the FTA18AB0 reaches a height of 58.5". 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 B0 ball head has separate pan and ball locks, and an Arca-type 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.

Asked by: the shredded
Yes! For most Fuji X-mount lenses, this is a great tripod choice! With larger lenses like the 50-140 f/2.8, you might like to consider the Benro Series 2 Travel Angel for extra stability: https://bhpho.to/2W9toux

question

Can you please confirm if alternate heads can be interchanged on this tripod? (eg. Manfrotto BeFree Live)
Asked by: Duane B.
Yes. This B0 ballhead is removable and there is a 3/8 -16 stud to attach the BeFree Live head. If you are looking for a travel tripod for video be sure to check out the Benro Aero series. The Aero center column has a leveling base so you don't have to adjust each tripod leg to level for panning.
