advantages of owning one of the benro monopods

The purpose of having any piece of photography equipment is to serve you and make it easier to take certain types of photographs as well as help you take better photographs.  Monopod are very useful in situations where you

(1) have limited space and a tripod is not feasible or permitted.

(2) are using a slow shutter speed and need to limit the movement of your camera/lens combination.

(3) want to ease the strain of supporting a heavy camera/lens combination

(4) are shooting video and want a more professional looking video with less annoying movement.


The Benro line of Monopods is one of the higher quality options in the marketplace.  Early on in my photography life, I purchased cheap tripods.  Needless to say they never lasted.  

Monopods have much more limited moving parts and are less likely to outright break, but the point is still the same.  In most situations, you get what you pay for.



Benro C38F Monopod Leg Tip

Swivel Pod Foot 


High Quality ball and socket foot design and extra wide base improves performance and grip on just about any surface.  Love how this foot functions.



Benro Monopod Grip

Hand Grip is Made of Closed-Cell Foam   


Closed-cell nitrile butadiene rubber makes a just firm enough, thick grip that makes carrying these monopods a pleasure.  Hand straps provide extra security so you won't accidentally drop your camera or tripod. 





Benro Quick Lock Legs

Anti-Rotation and Quick Lock Leg System


Easy to set up fast without fumbling with controls.  Height of monopod adjust easily with the set of quick locking levers that adjust the legs without rotating.

Benro also makes a complete line of quality tripods for the times when you have the need for added stability.  Here are some thoughts about the line-up of Benro Tripods.
