Benro Go Plus Travel FGP 28A + B1 ballhead
More than just three legs and a clever head, this Benro tripod is a marvel of convenience and versatility. Unlike many ‘travel’ tripods, it’s properly sturdy, with a maximum load rating of 14kg. And while it folds down supersmall, with a carrying length of just 49cm, it has a generous maximum operating height of 1.74m. It’s all down to folding trickery, with the legs swinging up for stowage, and the feet encompassing the head.
For macro, ultra-wide angle and low-level shooting, the tripod also benefits from a pivoting centre column. Unlike in competing Manfrotto tripods, the pivoting mechanism enables a full 180 degrees of rotation, with many lockable angles available along the way. Build quality is also fabulous. It really is a tripod you’ll want to treasure.
BUY if… You want a tripod that’s small enough to take anywhere, yet provides solid support and includes all the features you could wish for.
