BENRO A2970F Aluminum Flexpod
The Benro A2970F Flexpod Tripod Legs are a sophisticated tripod made for those who want to do some macro shooting with the camera facing directly at the ground, or perhaps even pointing under the legs themselves.  Beyond this function, it’s a solid 3-section ‘flip lock’ aluminum model with enough creature comforts to make vacations a little more pleasant with the tripod-though at this size and collapsed length, it should be a journey where the pictures are of paramount importance.The A2970F’s 28/24/20mm diameter leg segment profile provides rigidity appropriate for full-sized SLRs with large telephoto lenses as well as medium format camera systems, and you’ll also get a ‘working height’ of 57.9″, a height that puts the viewfinder at the eye level of a 5’10″ (178cm) person with the center column fully collapsed.  The tripod’s officially rated to support 22 lbs (10kg), and Benro recommends it for SLRs with lenses of up to 400mm focal length.

The A2970F’s flip-lever leg locks are of the newest technology, and provide reliable and fast use with just a small motion necessary.  Benro also has developed a rigid aluminum tubing that’s just 1.2mm thick, which along with the extensive use of magnesium in the castings allows this quite tall tripod to remain below 5 lbs.
