    Benro C1573F reviews

    C1573FS2 S2 Video Head and CF Flip Lock Legs Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tripod with great features. This tripod was bought to use with my Canon HF G30 while travelling through Japan. I was pleasently surprised with the attention to detail and overall quality of the tripod. The carbon fiber legs are sturdy and strong, the ball joint on the head that allows for levelling of the camera independant of the legs is an excellent feature, the carry bag is well made, and all the little things like the hooks for sand bags and integrated level etc are all well thought out. The head is a little heavy in comparison with the rest of the tripod, but it is slightly larger so no real problems there. Until I am actually carrying it around with me for a few months on my travels, I can't find anything wrong.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good but not as light as advertised. I bought this because traveling with a tripod adds a lot of weight to a checked bag. This little tripod is only suitable for the lightest of video cameras, like a palmcorder or a mirrorless camera. However the video head is smooth and you can do nice work with it. On my scale, with the legs, head and arm, it's closer to 5 pounds than the advertised 3. The padded case that comes with it is nice, but adds almost another pound. So if you are seriously buying this for the lightweight carbon fiber lightness, take that into consideration.
