New flip lock monopod and transfunctional tripod range from Benro

Kenro, the official UK and Ireland distributor for the acclaimed range of Benro tripods, has announced the release of a new generation Flip Lock Aluminium Monopod and Transfunctional Travel Angel Tripod range.

The Flip Lock Aluminium monopod has been designed for fast set ups and to combine the quality and strength of a stable camera support in situations where it is not possible to use a normal tripod. Monopods are ideal for sports, nature, mountaineering and general outdoor photography where weight and compactness are of paramount importance.

Features include, flip lock lever design legs, padded handgrip and a hand strap for additional security. A swivel foot pad, with a large base and flexible ball and socket is designed to give a good grip on difficult or uneven surfaces.

It has a maximum load of 18 kilograms and has a recommended retail price of 67.00.

The Travel Angel Transfunctional Series Tripods are manufactured from high quality aluminium with magnesium alloy castings. Each of the three models available are supplied with matched series ball head and have twist lock legs. For additional flexibility the legs can be independently locked in 2 positions, enabling the photographer to operate in difficult, cramped or uneven ground conditions and can be folded back through 180 degrees. An additional benefit of these tripods is the detachable leg that can be converted instantly into monopod.

Benro's innovative dust and weather resistant rubberised leg-locks, coupled with their anti-rotating legs, enable quick set ups and each tripod comes with a high quality durable case with straps for added protection.

The three models available have varying maximum loads of 6, 8 or 12 kilograms. They range in price from 220.00 for the smallest to 259.99 for the largest.

Kenro's Managing Director, Paul Kench, says: The reaction to the Benro range has been universally popular. Photographers appreciate the build quality, the design and the competitive pricing. These new additions to the Benro stable show how clever design touches can help photographers shoot great pictures even in challenging conditions.
