Great solid tripod

The Benro A2970F is a very solid tripod. I have been searching for the perfect tripod that wouldn't bust the back and I think I have found it. The main thing I was looking for was a tripod that could be at eye level without extending the center column. This tripod certainly does that. I would say anyone 6 feet tall and under will not have to extend the center column to be at eye level. This all depends on the head you are using of course. I am using a simple ball head.

I really like the diameter of the legs. The flip locks are pretty stiff and do have nuts to adjust the stiffness. You can also pan the center of the tripod independent of the head.

It's major competitor is the Manfrotto 055xprob tripod so let's compare the numbers:

Folded Height
Benro - 26 in
Manfrotto - 25.7 in

Max Height (without center column extended)
Benro - 58.1 in
Manfrotto - 55.9 in

Max Height (with center column extended)
Benro - 68.8 in
Manfrotto - 70.3 in

Maximum Load Capacity
Benro - 22 lb
Manfrotto - 15.4 lb

Tripod Weight
Benro - 4.5 lb
Manfrotto - 5.3 lb

Leg Angles
Benro - 24, ?, ? (3 angles)
Manfrotto - 23, 45, 65, 88 (4 angles)

Leg Tube Diameters
Benro - ?
Manfrotto - 29.4mm, 25mm, 20 mm

With both tripods you can mount the center column at practically any angle making them great for getting that perfect position.

The Benro includes a good carry case, strap and spiked feet whereas the Manfrotto you have to buy those accessories separately.

Bottomline: The Benro A2970F is very comparable to the Manfrotto 055xprob tripod and does include accessories that are not included with the Manfrotto. If you are looking for a tripod in the $150 range give the Benro a look.

great tripod

It is some what heavy but does not bother me as i would rather have the weight than blurry photos. The adjustablity is awesome and allows it be used in ways a and in places normal legs just won't go. Great tripod.
