Benro A1182TB0 is intent on being different, achieving all of the above while also boasting a unique foldable design – one that allows it to fold down to the thickness of a single leg. As if that weren’t enough to sell it, the model can also have one of its legs removed and used in conjunction with the supplied monopod head, when all three legs aren’t required.
