    Benro C373F reviews

    C373F Series 3 Carbon Fiber Video Tripod and BV6 Head is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tripod! I purchased this setup on sale and am very pleased with it. I currently own six tripods and have sold a few over the years. The build quality on this one is as good as any I have and better than most. One reviewer gave this tripod one star because the they said the lever hits the camera and prevents you from tightening the base plate fully. This is easily solved: simply pull out the lever and reposition it on the shaft. Perhaps they don't know it has this feature. The head itself works quite well in terms of smoothness and counterbalance. It's not perfect, but very serviceable for professional use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight but sturdy We bought this tripod and head to use with out Canon DSLR's for interviews. The heavy-duty Manfrotto video tripods are overkill for the DSLR's - we save those for the heavier video cameras. The Benro tripod seems well made, and does the job for which it was intended. The one negative I see is that there are only two positions for the tripod legs (besides folded closed); standard spread, and almost flat. It would have been a simple matter to add an additional notch on the hinge to add an inbetween spread. Other than that it was a good deal at the B&H discount price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK product for the money, but some quality issues The legs for this kit are very good, but I'm not entirely enamored with the video head. The first one I bought had to be returned, and the second one had a defective ball head handle. The video head performs well, but I don't feel it will hold up for many years. If you can afford it, spend more (a lot more) for a Sachtler, or professional tripod/video head. Cry once, buy once. This is an investment that will outlive your cameras, so do it right the first time.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't lock tripod base plate with camera attached! I bought this tripod thinking I could use this light weight one for my camera instead of using a heavy duty tripod that I have now.. However when I attach the tripod plate to the camera and put the camera on the tripod you can't lock the plate in place as the locking nut hits the camera when you try to lock it! Very poor design work by Benro! Buyer be warned!! I've enclosed a picture showing the problem!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great amateur tripod with professional features I purchased this for my Sony rig and it does a great job. It's kind of cheaply made but it's not bad and no worse than some Manfrottos I've seen. It does very smooth pans and tilts although I find the pan adjustments are a little tight. The fact you can adapt it from a ball head to a flat head without buying an extra adapter is a plus as well. The lighted level is nice. The legs themselves seem solid. Very lightweight and sturdy. All in all for the $400 I paid for it I feel I got a deal. On a side note I experienced the same problem the other reviewer did regarding the clamping knob being a little long and hitting the camera. This can actually be adjusted using an Allen wrench. The knob actually pulls away from the bolt via a spring (see pictures). When it's pulled away in this manner the bolt can be tightened independently with an Allen key. In this way I was able to readjust the position of the knob so it would tighten while still below the camera plane.
