would this work with SmallRig cages for Canon EOS R?
Asked by: John
Yes, any cage will attach to a tripod head but you would be better off with a pan & tilt head for doing smooth pans and tilts when shooting video.

Is this head suitable for a lightweight 4x5 wooden field camera? Chamonix N2
Asked by: DANIEL
The head is very sturdy. Knobs are small but work well. No problem with the weight. I use it with a large heavy 300mm lens and camer with no issues. Stays where I set it.

I am picking up my Canon 90D with battery grip this Saturday. Thinking about getting the Benro TMA37AL and the Benro B3 head. About broke now but want a good tripod and I heard about this one. Will this fit my set up ok? Don't do video just landscape photography here inn the PNW. Thank you for any help.
Asked by: James
I have this exact setup and can say without a doubt that it's a very robust tripod and head and should serve you well just beware this tripod isn't super compact when fully retracted and you may find it unwieldy if you're hiking in somewhere for a shot.

What is the diameter of the base of the B3 and is it any different than the B2? I got the B2 to go on a Benro TMA38CL Long tripod but would get the B3 if the base width comes closer to filling the footprint of the tripod base it screws onto.
Asked by: Mark
The B3 base is 3" in diameter, the B2 is 2.5' in diameter.

question

Can the Benro B3 triple ball head fit on the Benro FGP28 C Go Plus 4 section carbon fibre travel tripod?
