Benro Tripster Travel 1 Series Tripod Reviews

Definitely worth the trip!

By George

I did extensive research before pulling the trigger on the Tripster. A travel tripod will always be a compromise, a trade-off between folded length, extended length, weight and stability. In my opinion, the Benro Tripster provides an optimal relationship between these factors. It also provides the best bang for the buck among travel tripods. Folded, this Carbon Fiber tripod compacts to 14.1 and weighs in at 3 pounds. It comes with a draw-corded, lightweight travel sack. You might consider purchasing a separate padded case for excursions on a plane, but in the backpack, the corded sack works just fine. The tripod legs fold over the ballhead for trasport and then fold down in use. Most tripods that fold up smaller than 15" do not extend beyond 53"; this one extends to 59". There is a hook on the bottom of the tripod where you can add ballast like a backpack to increase its weight to add stability...useful if there is a stiff breeze. While the Benro Tripster is rated to hold 17.6 pounds, I suggest you do not exceed half the rating for this and other carbon fiber tripods. B&H is a first class operation. The tripod was well packed in a sturdy shipper, and arrived two days after I ordered it. B&H remains my go to source for camera gear and accessories. They get it right!

Smaller and lighter than I thought it would be when fully closed Easy to use Quick plate is a little tricky to get off at first but actually a smart and innovative design

Works well for travel

I've used the Benro Tripster tripod for some hiking and backpacking with great results. It's been solid with both my Canon bodies and lenses and had enabled me to put them on a tripod where in the past my standard tripod was too heavy and large to take with me.

Decent for the price

For the price, it's pretty good. Comes with ball head which has a tension adjustment and a quick release plate. Also comes with a spike feet kit. I've used it on my Z6 with a 24-70. Stable enough on solid ground. On soft ground the small legs can sink in the ground a ways and can be wobbly. Folds up small and light enough for a long hike which is what I got it for.

Solid piece for a solid price

So far, so good with this tripod. Seems well made and sturdy for travel purposes. For just over $200, great value for money.

Don't Like the Twist Legs

If you twist too much the lens disconnect from the rest of the tripod.

What's the advantage of the carbon fiber that makes it $50 more expensive than the aluminum version?

Carbon Fiber is lighter than Aluminum, so the weight of the Tripod will be less. Carbon Fiber also absorbs vibrations better, giving you a more stable platform.

The description says the center column is removable, but does that mean you can mount the ballhead directly to the legs to get it lower?

You need the center column to use the ball head. It's removeable so that you can reverse it if you want to get low shots.
