Benro Ultra Light

The Benro C1691 tripod and ballhead is a cost-effective kit that’s ideal for photographers on the go. It has a ‘fold back’ design where the legs actually reverse over the center post and ballhead, folding to a 17 inch length weighing only 3.6 pounds for both the tripod and ballhead.

Unfolded, it expands to a 62 inch maximum height with the center post extended. It’s rated to 17 pounds capacity, but we think about 6 or 7 pounds is more realistic with the center post extended. The ballhead, while small, is quite nice with separate lock and drag adjustment knobs, a quick-release clamp that’s compatible with an Arca Swiss QR system, and a 360° graduated panning scale. The 5-section carbon fiber legs have dust-resistant twist locks and one leg can be detached for use as a monopod.

Please Note: We include the standard Induro PU50 camera plate with this tripod. However, do understand it is a 2" small camera plate. If you’re planning on using a larger lens, you may want to rent an additional lens plate. We rent 4 different sizes to give you the most flexibility.

We carry a lot of tripod/ballhead kits. Here’s a quick comparison to help you pick the one that’s right for you, from lightest to heaviest.

Benro Ultralight is the lightest and most transportable tripod we carry and capable of supporting slightly heavier loads than the Giottos Tripod/Monopod.

Benro Medium Duty weighs in almost a full pound heavier than the MeFOTO GlobeTrotter, but is nearly identical in all other specs. Still, the extra weight will offer extra stability when using larger-lens camera combos, such as a 1DX and a 70-200 f2.8 size lens (and even a 300 f2.8 in ideal conditions). MAX LOAD: 12 lbs. MAX HEIGHT: 64 inches.

MeFOTO GlobeTrotter is one inch shorter than the ultralight when it’s collapsed, but offers a maximum capacity comparable to the Benro Medium Duty. As its name indicates, this tripod kit is made for travel. MAX LOAD: 12-15 lbs. MAX HEIGHT: 64.2 inches.

If you’ll be using a 400 f2.8 or similar size lens, we recommend getting a separate heavy duty tripod and a Wimberley II or Markins Q20i BV-20 Ballhead

If you’d like to mix and match to get exactly what you want, we also carry separate tripod legs and heads
