    Benro A2573F reviews

    A2573FS4 S4 Video Head and AL Flip Lock Legs Kit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Compact Tripod/Head I use this for interviews as well as weddings and run and gun type situations.I originally purchased a much larger tripod head with similar sticks and found that it was just too cumbersome for my camera(GH4). Considering I shoot all video, one of the things that bothered me most was that there was no built in tripod head leveler (you have to adjust the legs accordingly to get an even shot). This Benro combo fixed that issue and so much more! It has the level adjuster built in along with a bubble level to quickly level your shot. It was also much cheaper and more compact than my previous head.The case is a great bonus as well!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as fluid as I thought it would be Dual locking for quick release is great. Legs are great but pan and tilt is just way too soft. So I replaced the head with a Slik 504QF-II Video Fluid Head instead and this one is so much better in fact you can control the drag.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not quite sure how I like it yet This tripod is light and comes with a nice carrying case. However, I'm not sure if I like it. When I put my Sony NX-100 on it, it has a ball that tips my camera and doesn't really lock into place. It's hard to pan images when it's on top of a ball. I keep trying to get the hang of it but I'm not sure if I like this feature yet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tripod and a Pretty Good Head Overall this tripod and head system is a great deal at a great price! Everything is built very well and to last. I love the tripod, but I had some issues with the head. Read on. . .The S4 head is a good head, its fluid movement is very good, BUT I think the manufacturer is overrating the capacity of this head a bit. I use a JVC HMU150 camera with this head, and when the camera is on the head by itself the head has enough counterbalance spring capacity and balance range to work perfectly. When I add my wireless receiver and on-board monitor however, I exceed the capacity of the counter balance spring. My camera rig with the wireless receiver and monitor is still within the weight capacity of the head, but the center of gravity is moved up higher on the head, so the counterbalance spring loses its effectiveness and the camera becomes front or back heavy depending on which way I tilt. The pan handle is a bit flimsy also, it would be better if it was thinker in diameter. The tripod in this kit is great! It is sturdy and well designed for quick set up and offers a lot features. The ball leveling system works very well. The leg locks are very strong and well designed. The tabs for spreading the legs work perfectly and the center column locks solidly. There is even a compass installed into the top of the tripod along with the sprit level. The tripod is very well designed. I sent this kit back to B & H and they refunded my purchase without any issues. I'm going to buy the same tripod but with the bigger S6 head instead.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from exactly what I needed... Full disclosure...I'm basically a real estate photographer - the lowest form of photography life out there. I have been wanting to get started incorporating video into my offerings, but I needed a tripod for the job. For the price, I couldn't be happier. I'm sure that I would be over the moon with some of the pricier models that I had my eye on, but for a video neophyte, this does the job. Although its not light, it is not heavy either. SInce I have to travel around with it and carry it long distances, this was key. At the same time, it is substantial enough to hold up well in the wind when I do exteriors. I was pleasantly surprised on one very windy day. Another perk is that it comes with its own carrying case that is nicely padded. Another pleasant surprise. Once you get used to leveling it and panning with it, its very user friendly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Tripod for semi-pro video Tripods and heads in this price range that are this good are rare, no you wouldn't want to use this for a feature movie, but for almost any other semi-pro use (conferences, weddings etc.) it works. The fluid head allows for an acceptable pan, and the tilt capabilities match that of a much more expensive head. The legs are solid and stay put during a pan, and they get high enough for most situations.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tripod, Great Price As wedding videographer, I look for goo quality gear at a good price. This Benro tripod is that. At a price below what I would pay for a manfrotto of similar style, I get a the ability to level the head. With other brands, that is a feature that comes with a much higher price tag. The bad on this is the QR plate doesn't slide in and out as smoothly as I would like.
