Benro S2 Tripod System Overview

The Benro SLIM Video Tripod Kit features a quick to set up, quick to adjust, ultra-lightweight tripod that you can easily carry with you. The kit consists of the tripod, a video head, and a soft case. The tripod supports up to 5.5 lb loads and is suitable not only for mirrorless and DSLR cameras but also for smartphones (optional smartphone mount required).

The tripod has four leg sections and reaches a max height of 57" with the center column raised. In many cases, this tripod might be the ideal solution for you, considering how easy it is to bring along and that for many applications it's fully sufficient. The folded height is 20.5", and with the legs being very slim, the tripod is very compact when folded.

The legs are designed with anodized aluminum twist locks that only require a half-turn to lock and unlock, allowing you to set up and pack away quickly. Moreover, each leg can be positioned individually so that you can easily find balance on uneven surfaces. The legs are outfitted with fixed rubber feet.

The video head offers smooth damping for both pan and tilt movements. It features an adjustable pan bar and an Arca-Swiss style camera plate with a D-ring 1/4"-20 mounting screw.

The center column prevents twisting when in use and can be reversed for low-to-the-ground shots. A weight hook is located on the bottom end of the center column for attaching a sack or other weight in windy conditions. Bubble levels for finding balance are available on both the tripod and the video head.

Love this tripod! It is lightweight, pan and tilt are fairly smooth, and it has held up to a lot of run & gun usage. Too bad it was discontinued.

My travel tripod

By Felicia

I use this for on the go shooting, it's flexible and sturdy. It can get into some low angles my other tripod can't. I love how light and easy it is to use on the go. My only issue is the quick release plate has a nob on the side to tighten the mount once the camera is in place, only the nob has a extension on it that hits the bottom of the camera and won't tighten up as much as I would like it to. I'm sure there is a work around, like switching the nob, but I haven't tried to fix the issue yet.

I use this tripod for trips to the wilderness. It is perfect with my Sony A6300 with a small shotgun mic attached. Great workmanship. The levelling feature is very efficient.

I was concerned with swivel motion being to stiff, but one I put my spotting scope on the stand everything worked great. The unit does flex with my scope and is compact enough to fit inside me backpack for traveling.

What is the shortest height this can be set to? That is, do the legs fold out horizontally? I am thinking about shooting from a very low position but still being able to use this to steady the camera.
Asked by: Karl
The Benro C1573FS2 S2 minimum height is16.14 in (41 cm). This is obtained by folding out the legs almost flat.

what weight of sand bag can be attached to the tripod?
Asked by: Skye
There is no specific limit for what size weight bag can be used. However this tripod has a head which only supports 5.5 pounds. Just to keep things even you may want to stay around that weight with a 5 pound bag like the Impact Shot Bag, BH #IMSHB5. https://bhpho.to/3cu2pNT
