Benro's Tortoise tripod series features a lightweight, compact design combined with advanced features. Carbon construction provides increased strength and stability and is perfect for photographers looking for a balance of stability and portability. Ergonomic rubber twist locks allow you to extend and retract the legs with a quick twist, so you can set them up or take them down in seconds. For even more versatility, a simple twist converts the ⅜"-16" thread to a ¼"-20" thread. The three-stage, self-adjusting rubber feet improve the stability of the tripod. Combined with the GX ball head, the tripod is ready to go! The low-profile design of the GX heads allows for a higher payload and smoother, more controllable camera movement. The GX heads feature a dual pan mode that allows you to pan the head from its base in addition to the quick release platform, a main ball lock knob and friction control.
