The Benbo Trekker Mk 3 Compact Aluminum Tripod is a 2-section camera support that can hold 11 lb of gear and extend up to 45" high. The center column is designed so that it can place your camera at ground level for macro photography or shooting at low angles. A 1/4"-20 thread accepts most cameras or certain tripod heads, and a ballast hook allows you to hang a stabilizing weight.

    Trekker Mk 3 Compact Aluminum Tripod is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool Tripod I got this tripod as a secondary tripod. I like it because of all the different positions it can be put into. It can go low to the ground and I can angle my camera so it is hanging right over my subject. Great for macro photography. This tripod is heavier than a travel tripod but it is not extremely heavy so I could easily take it hiking or to locations. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is beacuse of the ballhead. The ballhead was not the best. HOWEVER, I found that the Oben BB-0 Ball Head with quick release will fit nicely. Once I changed the ballhead I give this 5 stars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat Product, works well after practice! As the first tripod I have bought, this product was well researched for it's uniqueness. That said I did borrow and try other tripods before taking the risk of jumping in and buying this. That said, I'm happy with the product and can gladly say it has fulfilled my expectations, especially considering the price. Combined with a decent ballhead, the tripod is versitile in it's positioning and can easily be manuevered with practice into many different positions and angles. , the only bad thing about this is all that manuverability is adjusted using one lever... so it requires finess! I'll summarize this with a pros and con listing. Pros Weight, it's not light and doesn't shift easily Manueverable Waterproof to the first segement Cons Weight - it's not light!!!! Short- it's short so if your looking for height, buy the larger version requires practice to learn how to position it I hope this helps

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get Creative This guy is not like any other tripod I've used - and that's the point. I purchased the Trekker Mk3 specifically because of the odd construction (single-bolt). I was looking for a cheap rig to steady my Canon 7D and this thing caught my eye. My initial plan was to use it as a make-shift steady cam, but that didn't pan out exactly as I'd hoped. However, as a shoulder cam, this thing is perfect. I hold one leg under my right arm, one leg rests on my belt and the other I hold in my right hand. With a counterweight hanging over my back, it is incredibly stable and superbly priced for its functionality. Add to that the ACTUAL functions it fulfills and you're investing in something that can do almost anything. I couldn't give it five stars, just because it is not the most stable tripod (that single bolt never really gets tight enough).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It looked so promising This looked like it had so much potential. This is the second one I have owned. The first one was stolen from my car before I was able to determine if I was just bad at tripoding or this thing really does have issues. First, there is no way it will hold 11 pounds stable. Second, It really does not get that close to the ground due to the fact the center pole comes out over the center leg instead of between the other two legs. The Benbo ball head is useless. It does not have a quick release nor does it lock down tight enough to keep from moving with the weight of my camera on it. When I do get it screwed down tight enough to the camera the glue squeezes out from the cork and glues its self to my camera. I was using it with auto focus on and it would shift and almost drop the camera every time the lens moved. I did try it with a lighter point and shoot camera and it worked fine. The legs slip unless you really put some torque on the very heavy-duty leg-tightening handle. Still looking for a god macro tripod. This is not it for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy! Very durable and easy to use. I use it for jewelry both large and small and it's great to manipulate the shot with this tripod.
