China-based Benro has announced new Travel Angel Tripod Kits and Transfunctional Travel Angel Tripod Kits for the US market, offering a compact design in which the legs can be inverted and folded back for easy packing and carrying.
For added versatility, Benro says the new Transfunctional Travel Angel Series has the ability to convert from a full size tripod into a compact monopod quickly and easily – without tools.
“These super-compact tripods feature legs that fold back 180 degrees making them ideal for photographers on the go,” said Jan Lederman, President of MAC Group, Benro’s US distributor. “And the quick switch to a sturdy compact monopod is an added bonus that we’re sure photographers will appreciate.”
The new Benro tripod kits are available in aluminum and carbon fiber versions, costing from $149 to $536.
