Benro FGP28A Go Plus 4-Section Aluminum Travel Tripod
The FGP28A Go Plus from Benro is an aluminum, 4-section tripod which offers a variety of studio-support amenities in a compact, travel-tripod design.
Sporting an impressive strength-to-weight ratio, the FGP28A can support up to 30 lb while weighing just 4.2 lb. Usable at either full height or ground level, the tripod can extend up to a maximum height of 65.2″ or be lowered down to a minimum height of just 15.4″. It’s compact and travel friendly design can be directly attributed to the reverse folding legs which break the tripod down to just 19.5″ in length.
Each one of the tripod’s legs features a 4-section design allowing for the optional deployment of different leg sections to achieve varying heights. The legs also utilize Benro’s sealed twist-locks which help to resist dust and moisture. One of the legs, marked with a blue ring, can also be joined with the center column to form a monopod – a useful feature for shooting in environments where tripods may not be permitted.
The center column also features a unique lateral arm function which allows the column to tilt horizontally and lock in a wide range of different angles and positions.
The tripod’s top plate features a standard 3/8″-16 mounting screw ideal for attaching most common tripod heads. Additionally, the FGP28A includes a carrying case and a set of interchangeable spiked feet for increased stability in dirt, sand, mud, and snow.
