Benro has launched two special edition tripods for travel photographers, introducing the iFoto carbon fibre and aluminium kits.

Ultra compact, the iFoto tripods fold down to a portable 36cm thanks to their five-leg sections, and both versions also offer a detachable leg that, when combined with the centre column, form a monopod.

The Benro iFoto carbon fibre model weighs 1.41kg and the aluminium version weighs in at 1.64kg.

Both models are capable of supporting up to 8kg of camera equipment and come with a Benro ball head.

The legs feature twist locks and also come with a set of spiked feet which come in a supplied carrying case.

The Benro iFoto price tag is £130 for the aluminium kit, and the 8-layer carbon fibre version is priced £230.
