    Benro A1573F reviews

    A1573FS2 S2 Video Head and AL Flip Lock Legs Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tripod! I recently used this tripod on a full day shoot involving an interview and several hours shooting b-roll at an airport. The tripod held up great! Light enough to quickly set up yet very sturdy and it was able to take knocks along the way. Some caveats: Make sure the center post is as tight as you can make it. Also the screw to lock down the quick release plate would bump into the camera and I would have to turn the camera on the quick release plate to lock it fully down. However I noticed you can adjust the plastic leaver with a small hex bit on the screw so that this would no longer happen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight tripod Very lighweight, yet sturdy enough for my VG900 with a 70-200. Works perfectly for my needs!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price! I purchased this tripod a year ago and it has been serving me great. It's very light and easy to carry around. The legs and the tripod head are fully adjustable so I had no worries about leveling it. You have the option to put extra weight on the tripod, but I didn't have problems with shaking or anything even though I use a mid-sized DSLR. It's really nice that they included a carrying bag and a set of spikes for more grip in some situations. Since it's intended to be a light traveling tripod, there are some compromises in the fluid head; it wiggles when the pan and tilt knobs are completely loose and it's not the smoothest of them all, but it makes the job done well enough for me. Also I noticed that the little screw for the plate couldn't spin all the way because my camera was getting in the way but maybe it's yust because of my camera. But besides that it's a very solid option for the price and I don't regret buying it.
