Benro ProAngel overview

  • 1Description

This FPA19AB0 ProAngel Aluminum-Alloy #1-Series Tripod from Benro supports up to 17.6 lb and includes a B0 Arca-type ball head with quick release plate. Designed to conserve space during storage and transport, this travel tripod measures 12.6" long when folded. Each of its 5-section legs features an independent spread, a 3-position angle lock, a single half-turn twist lock for speedy deployment, and a rubber foot to enhance stability on a wide variety of surfaces. Among the legs is a push-and-pull, rapid center column with two, telescoping sections and dual twist locks that further contribute to this tripod's compact design. Together, the three legs can be spread and extended to raise the tripod from a minimum height of 12.4" to a maximum height of 48.4" or 58.9" when the center column is fully elevated.

Cameras, lenses, or sport optics that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the included quick release plate. The quick release plate can be attached and removed from the integrated, Arca-type clamp located at the top of the B0 head's ball-and-socket joint by tightening or loosening the clamp's knurled, locking knob. This knob must be pulled before it can be turned, which serves to ensure that the clamp is opened only when intended. The top of the quick release plate features a rubberized, non-slip platform, while dual retaining screws are provided along its underside. Those retaining screws help prevent the quick release plate and an attached camera from accidentally sliding off when the clamp it is placed on is opened.

By loosening the ball head's primary locking knob, the head's ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swiveled, angled, fully tilted, or returned to its upright position. Variable tension can be applied to the ball-and-socket joint's movements by rotating the friction knob, which is adjacent to the primary locking knob. Toward the ball head's base is a secondary locking knob that controls the ability to rotate the head 360°. For added versatility, the tripod's center column is reversible, facilitating low-angle photography where an attached camera is positioned among the tripod's legs instead of above them.

A nylon carry bag with a zippered closure and shoulder strap is provided for storage and transport.

    Benro ProAngel reviews

    FPA19AB0 ProAngel Aluminum-Alloy #1-Series Tripod with B0 Ball Head is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I am going to use this for travel. First off, I've wasted so much money looking for the right travel tripod & I believe I've finally found it. I had previously purchased the Mefoto Air Roadtrip, which I liked the small, light weight size however the Mefotos head has a panning knob and I could never get it to tighten so because of that the camera would easily move if I bumped it. I saw this tripod & it's basically the same concept & style but with a few differences. The head is removable, the panning tightens, it just feels sturdier, the legs tighten better without collapsing. In my opinion, It's just 100% better than the Mefoto. So if your looking at the Mefoto Airs, I would suggest getting this one instead. I Absolutely LOVE this tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdier than I expected. I bought this for an upcoming trip with a decent amount of concern as there aren't a lot of reviews for this series and similar products from other manufacturers seem to have very mixed reviews.� My first impression as I took it out of its packaging was 'wow, this feels pretty substantial.'� I knew coming in that it's listed as 3 lbs in weight and it definitely feels like every ounce of that, if not more.� That said, I did specifically opt for this model as opposed to the one just below it for that additional weight and height for a sturdier mount.� I think for the traveler whose use of a tripod may not be as demanding as a professional, but at the same time wants something light enough to tote around all day if necessary and is quick to set up and use, this kit hits a very sweet spot.� It's quite sturdy and even though at it's thinnest the legs get pretty slim, it appears to have no issues holding up a fair amount of weight (I've so far tested it with a Nikon D610 with a Tamron 70-200 2.8 G2).� Of course, if a big rig happens to roll by next to you while you are taking long exposures in the city, I would fully expect some of those vibrations to pass through to the camera.� Windy days could be an issue when fully extended, but using the weight hook should help to alleviate some of those issues.� I just use my camera bag for that.� �For me, it's height is perfect for most of my needs and I'm glad I chose this as opposed to the model below it which extends 7" shorter. The ball head is really nice, too, with a good amount of granular control and I love that it is Arca Swiss compatible.� � For travel, I think this is a really nice piece of kit that while not the cheapest option out there, for what it is, feels solid and works well for its intended purpose.
