Benro FGP18A Overview

The FGP18A Go Plus from Benro is an aluminum, 4-section tripod which offers a variety of studio-support amenities in a compact, travel-tripod design.

Sporting an impressive strength-to-weight ratio, the FGP18A can support up to 22 lb while weighing just 3.5 lb. Usable at either full height or ground level, the tripod can extend up to a maximum height of 60.6" or be lowered down to a minimum height of just 14.6". Its compact and travel-friendly design can be directly attributed to the reverse folding legs which break the tripod down to just 18.1" in length.

Each of the tripod's legs features a 4-section design allowing for the optional deployment of different leg sections to achieve varying heights. The legs also utilize Benro's sealed twist-locks which help to resist dust and moisture. One of the legs, marked with a blue ring, can also be joined with the center column to form a monopod - a useful feature for shooting in environments where tripods may not be permitted. The center column also features a unique lateral arm function which allows the column to tilt horizontally and lock in a wide range of different angles and positions.

The tripod's top plate features a standard 3/8"-16 mounting screw ideal for attaching most common tripod heads. Additionally, the FGP18A includes a carrying case and a set of interchangeable spiked feet for increased stability in dirt, sand, mud, and snow.

Would this tripod be sturdy enough with the Leophoto BH #LEBV5 fluid head to use for the Vortex Viper spotting scope?
Asked by: Mark D
The Benro FGP18A Go Plus 4-Section Aluminum Travel Tripod would be sturdy enough to hold the Vortex Viper spotting scope, but you might want a head with a larger load capacity.

I have a BENRO FGP18A & need to mount it to an iphone. Which mounting kit should I order to give me 360degree swivel please?
Asked by: STEPHANIE
I own a Benro IN00 Single Action Ball Head which would give you 360 degree rotation + 180 degree tilt in either direction. You however would need another type of mount/connector to hold your device that would connect to the Head.

I have 2 FGP18A tripods and would like to add systemGo GC269TB2 accessories similar to the kit that allows you to mount a laptop and camera to a horizontal center column. Is this possible and if so what parts do I need?
Asked by: Mike
You would first need the Benro 0-Degree GoCoupler 1 for SystemGo Series 1 Tripods B&H # BEGSC100 which will mount on the end of the column on the FGP18A. It can accept the Benro GoRail 2 Center Column (19.7") B&H # BEGSR250 . The column which is placed horizontally can use the Benro GoPlatform Laptop & Projector Platform B&H # BEGSPP while on the vertical column, you can place another ball head such as the Benro IB2 Triple Action Ball Head B&H # BEIB2TAB. https://bhpho.to/31sEPvn https://bhpho.to/2ZmI4Tk https://bhpho.to/2F9kWjp To get an idea of the set up, the following photo may help: http://bit.ly/2KMv8SJ

My first real tripod and a silly question, but I bought theBenro HD3A 3-Way Panhead with it. Can I remove the handles so that it all fits in the carry case or would that cause wear/damage to take them on and off all the time? Do you carry the head separate or ??
Asked by: Michelle
When traveling with, or storing the Benro FGP18A Go Plus 4-Section Aluminum Travel Tripod, one can remove the "head" that is mounted to the top of the center column. The 3/8" 16 male thread on the center column is very durable, and the inner 3/8" 16 thread on the Benro HD3A 3-Way Panhead is a high quality thread as well. To prevent extra wear/damage when re-mounting the head, it would be very helpful to carefully line them up. Also to prevent dust from getting into the head it would be good to cover with a protective bag when traveling or storing.
