Benro ELC3 reviews

C-358 Extra-Low Carbon Fiber Center Column is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased for Induro CT314 I purchased the CT314 and this because I wanted a sturdier tripod w/o the center column. For those who think this shorter center column will lighten the combo, it wont. This shorter column has a thicker top plate with 3 set screws to lock down the head. Nice because it wont skew the head as the long center column that came with the CT314 only has 1 setscrew. My BH55 sits perfect on this column. Benro and Induro are the same company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is what it is I bought this short column to replace the standard one on my Induro CT314. Basically, this allows me to bring the tripod down to the ground much further. It also makes the tripod lighter, but honestly, I can't really tell. I don't like to use a column anyway, so this is the next best thing to not even having one. Perfect product that does what it is intended for and nothing more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MUST-HAVE ACCESSORY This short center column replaces the standard center column of the Induro 3 Series (e.g., CT314)tripods. The change-over from one to the other takes about a minute using the tool kit included with the Induro tripods. The short center column is needed to enable the lowest possible positioning of the tripod. I consider this a must-have accessory for landscape and wildlife work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Tripod Addition I bought this to replace the longer center column on my Induro CX314 tripod. I never use the center extension, since it defeats the purpose of the tripod (and the CX314 is plenty tall). This shorter column allows the tripod to be set in its lowest leg position for ground-level shots. The hook at the bottom of the longer column can be easily moved to this column, allowing you to add weight to the tripod as needed for maximum stability. The column is well made and would have gotten five stars, had it been more reasonably priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT Option!!! I love having the option to go super low with my tripod. It was easy to remove the column the Induro came with and simply put this one in its place. I LOVE that I was able to remove the end piece from the original column and screw it right on to the end of the column shown here...so you do not lose that cool feature!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extra Low Center Column works The Benro Extra-Low Carbon Fiber Center Column is just short enough for me to adjust the tripod angle to the lowest position on a level surface with less than a inch to spare. I would like it if it were 1-2 inches shorter, but in the meantime, it is close and good enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very simple, solid center column When they said Extra-Low, they really mean it! This thing is about 6 inches long and it is great. I use it with my Benro c328 which allows it to go VERY low to the ground. I rarely pull this out since center columns destabilizes. So it does the job quite well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I never give 5 stars but this was close. For example if they cut the price in half I would not have a way to increase the rating. Anyway I have an Induro tripod and this was a Benro Center column. The customer service person on the phone said they were made in the same factory. (how would he know for sure?) Anyway it is very well made ,even better than the original. It is perfect except the price was quite high. If I had the $ I would have gotten it sooner.
