Can Benro tripods be used in water?
Water will not damage them, but make sure the tripod is allowed to completely dry before storing it. It is a good idea to rinse the tripod after use, especially if it has been exposed to salt water and sand, then let it dry fully extended.
How can I determine what series my tripod is?
Benro tripods are classified according to size, ranging from Series 0 through Series 3. It is the first digit in the tripod’s “name” that will determine what Series it is. For example, a “C1182TB0” is a Series 1 tripod; a “C3580F” is a Series 3.
What is the best way to select a head for my new tripod?
If you are interested in a ballhead, there are two types: a “dual-action” and a “single-action.” Dual-action heads offer the greatest amount of control and are a good choice for general-purpose, panning, or panoramic photography. The less expensive single-action head is a simple ball/lock mechanism. There are also several “pan heads” available for specific shooting situations. All heads have numerical designations, similar to the tripods, that indicate size. Select a head size that is recommended for your tripod, and has a load capacity sufficient for your camera and lens.
