Benbo Trekker Mk3 Compact/Unil-loc 25 Ball Head combo Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Benbo Trekker Mk3 Compact/Unil-loc 25 Ball Head combo

Asking Price
90.00 USD

Item Location
Knoxville, Tennessee (United States)

Item Description
Up for sale is:

1.) My "backcountry" tripod, a Benbo Trekker Mk3 Compact. I bought this used from Adorama, and while it has seen honest use over the past year, everything is ship-shape, with only cosmetic wear apparent. I have found it to be a great asset when setting up on uneven terrain, and of course, the Benbo has a great reputation as a "macro" tripod, since it can be articulated to put the camera in almost any position. Please note that with heavy lens/head combinations not every position the tripod will contort into will be stable--if you're into "technical" macro and using geared heads, rails, and 200mm lenses, for instance, you'll no doubt find better options. But with lightweight kit--e.g. a K5 and an A50 2.8, in my case--I found it worked great for my adventures afield in the Great Smoky Mountains.

2.) A Uni-loc 25 ball head. I acquired this as an "add-on" from another purchase and so I have not used it in the field, but it appears clean and functional. A couple of notes about the head: it lacks a QR clamp, and it is designed to mount to a 1/4" tripod screw. (Which the Benbo features: a head for a 3/8th inch screw will require an easily acquired bushing to fit the Benbo's screw.)

Prices new for the Benbo are $109.95 at B&H, and Uni-loc's last price sheet lists the Uni-loc 25 ball head at $70. I'm selling both together as a package for $90 shipped.

Please PM if you'd like it, or have any questions.
