Benro TAD38CB3 reviews

TAD38CB3 Series 3 Adventure Carbon Fiber Tripod with B3 Ball Head is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy tripod I was looking to purchase a tripod that was sturdy and light. I was hoping to get both, knowing that sometimes making a tripod light makes it less sturdy. I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that this tripod scores on both counts. It is rock steady and easily carried. With a payload of 30+ lbs, it easily holds my DSLR and telephoto lens. I will be interested to see how well it holds up over time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy I bought this tripod and ball head. It's been used the tripod in foot deep water and in mud and in sand and so far it's working fine. I haven't had to adjust the snap leg locks. I've kept it clean with damp paper towels. I'm very satisfied with the tripod. I holds my D800 with 500mm lens and gimbal rock solid. As far the ball head, with my 105 macro lens, I have to lock my camera focus point just a little above what I'm aiming for because the head will allow the focus point to move down slightly. This is just a little annoying; but, not too hard to compensate for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend this product to a friend. I've not had a chance to use the tripod extensively, but my initial impression is good. The price of the tripod from B and H photo was great, a real deal especially with expedited shipping. It is warranted for three years with extension to five years, if you can figure out how to register the product. The Benro website would not allow me to register the the tripod. The website is very strange in this regard. This seems to be a well built, solid tripod that Benro claims will support up to 39 lbs. It is quite stable and will likely support my A7R with 70-300 Sony A lens on adapter. The latches work well and the legs extend easily. The B3 ballhead is a bit mysterious and will get some time to get used to. The head seems stable, locks firmly, and has a level bubble (There's a second bubble at the top of the tripod.). It comes with a well-made travel case that contains various tools and other accessories. The tripod fits easily into the case; my only complaint with the case is that the strap is totally inadequate for the weight of the tripod. Purchase a better trap with good shoulder protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good Very pleased with the tripod and ballhead. Should have gotten it sooner. Very easy to use, steady and has a well built feel to it.
