Benro has relaunched its Combination series tripods with remodelled carbon fibre legs and twist locks, priced from £400.

Aimed at wildlife and landscape photographers, the Benro Combination Series 3 tripods come in two versions: one with a three-section leg model priced £400 and a four-section model priced £410.

Both Benro Combination Series 3 tripods can each support a payload of 18kg and boast 8 layer carbon fibre tubes with magnesium alloy castings.

The Benro carbon fibre tripods both come with a flat mount platform head and are also supplied with a levelling 75mm bowl for shooting video.

The twisting lock systems require just a quarter turn to lock and unlock, Benro says.

The tripods also come with three feet options, which are all included with the kit: a traditional rubber foot, spiked feet and a ‘big’ food for more stability.

The Benro Combination carbon fibre tripods also boast a hook under the centre column and come with a padded carry bag.

The Benro Combination Series 3 Twist 3 Section tripod has a maximum height of 150cm, compared to 152cm on the four-section leg model. Both offer a minimum height of 14cm.

The four-section leg version also folds more compactly down to 57cm, compared to 67.5cm for the three-section leg model.

The Twist 3 Section, however, weight slightly less at 2.1kg compared to 2.16kg for the Twist 4 Section.
