£260/$310

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.
