Item Description
If you aren't familiar with the Benbo Classic No. 1, it is a tripod design that will let you do things that no other tripod can do, like this: Read a review here.

One reviewer states:
have been using the original version of this tripod for over 20 years with no problems! It has its share of dings and scratches but still works as well as the day I got it. I did extensive macro photography for years and the Benbo was indispensable. It can be set up on steep hillsides,or almost any terrain since each leg can be set at any angle and the center support rotated and extended as needed. Contrary to some other reviews. after a few uses I had no trouble setting up or using this tripod. FOR MACRO WORK A BENBO IS A MUST HAVE.
Maximum Height 62.0" (1.58 m)
Minimum Height Ground level
Folded Length 33.0" (0.84 m)
Load Capacity Unspecified by manufacturer
Leg Sections 2
Leg Lock Type Oversized locking knobs
Independent Leg Spread Yes
Center Column Sections 1
Center Column Type Sliding (can be set vertically, horizontally or anywhere in between)
Center Brace No
Spiked Feet Yes
Head Type None
Head Mount Thread Size 1/4"-20
Weight 7.50 lb (3.40 kg)

The center column has a std. 1/4" stud on one end and a 3/8" stud on the other so will accept any kind of head you desire.

This tripod was purchased new by me at a local camera store that was going out of business and I have not gotten to use it as much as I hoped, so it is going to a new (good) home.

Compare at $188. My price: $119 plus actual shipping.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
