Benro S2Pro Tripod System Overview

The Aluminum Tripod with S2 PRO 60mm Flat Base Video Head from Benro is a compact video system ideal for mirrorless and DSLR camera setups weighing up to 5.5 lb. The system features a 60mm flat base head with a 3/8"-16 thread and a set of durable aluminum tripod legs.

The aluminum tripod legs feature flip locks and three independent leg positions. The tripod mount features a center leveling adapter, so you don't have to adjust the legs for balancing, and the center column features a weight hook. The legs also feature both spiked and rubber feet for use on different surfaces.

The S2 PRO head features fixed pan and tilt drag and has independent pan and tilt locks. The tilt range is +90/-70°, and the pan range is a full 360°. It also features a bubble level to assist with balancing. The included pan bar can be attached to the right or left rosette.

A sliding camera plate is included and can be adjusted forward/backward for optimal balance. A safety lock ensures that once mounted, the plate won't slip out. There are also two 1/4"-20 accessory threads that allow you to mount a monitor, extension arm, or other accessories.

Benro S2Pro Tripod System Reviews

Great for hobbyist, not for pros

By Video
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-24

This is a great quality tripod for hobbyists and semi-pro shooters. However, it does not hold up long to the rigors of pro shooting. It's quality and functionality are good for travel or as a compact rig, but it did not survive longer than two years of weekly use and several cross country/cross continent trips. We have several of the compact, bare bones Manfrotto tripods that are still holding strong after nearly 10 years of constant abuse. I don't think Benro will last as long as a Manfrotto for the same price, but the Benro has more features. It'll probably last a while if you take really good care of it.

Good travel tripod for price and size

Pros: Decent fluid head, stable legs considering the size and price. Small fold up size of 21 Cons: Bubble is finicky for getting correct level. Camera can get in way of tripod plate lock screw. Some spring-back on pans. I bought this little tripod for its advertised purpose: as a travel tripod. As such it does a fairly good job fitting into this role, although as expected there are some inherent compromises in travel tripods. The construction is reasonably solid, the legs do not twist much when fully extended and panning. This is very important to reduce spring-back when starting or stopping a pan. The legs do not extend as smoothly as my Robus RC-8880 carbon fiber legs on my main tripod, but then again, these are smaller, aluminum, and a fraction of the price. And this does not really affect the functionality of the tripod. I do wish the leg spread was wider at the default setting, so be careful not to bump the tripod over. The leveling adjustment works easily and locks in place. While not as nice as a 75mm ball head, it is still way better than trying to adjust the legs 1 by 1 to get the head level. The single biggest issue is getting the head really level. It may look level with the bubble, but when doing the pan, one end or the other may be a little off. This may take some practice and I wish the bubble level was much bigger and more precise. The camera plate is very small, although the safely lock works, and it's easy to insert and remove. The second biggest issue is that when using a wide camera or camcorder body (GH5S in my case) the bottom of the camera interferes with tightening the camera plate screw. This is a common and annoying problem with many smaller tripods. You have to get the screw to within half a turn of being tight, put the camera on, and then finish tightening it. I was very impressed with the quality of the pan/tilt head given its small size. The fixed fluid drag resistance is about the same compared to the medium level setting on my Libec NH30 head. This is a good default setting for a tripod where pan and tilt drag can not be adjusted. In fact it is better than the looser fluid drag on my old Manfrotto DV501 head which this will replace. Both pan and tilt are smooth given the small size of the head, although it does have some spring-back (when you stop a pan and take your hand off, the camera will rotate opposite the direction of pan slightly) which is common on smaller heads mounted to smaller legs. As expected, there is no tilt counter-balance. Ultimately if you need buttery smooth pans where the pan stops and stays in place where you want it to, and counterbalanced tilt, you will need to pony up some money for larger and more expensive kit like the Libec NH30 with Robus RC-8880 carbon fiber legs that serve as my main tripod. But try getting that stuffed into your carry-on bag, or lugging a 11 pound tripod on a long hike. It should be noted, the small size also limits the size and weight of the camera that can be placed on the Benro Aero 2; I'm almost at max load weight with a GH5S, xls adapter and microphone. The pan and tilt lock work well, and when locked down it holds the camera in place. While I have not tried this tripod in the wind, I expect it to be vastly inferior to my main tripod in this regard given the small size and weight. So while it will never replace the main tripod, it does serve a niche as a travel tripod. It would also be suitable for tight budgets, or as a first tripod for students or casual hobbyists. And when purchased on sale at B&H it's a good tripod for the money.
