The FGP18A SystemGo Plus Travel tripod series is the first to offer the compactness of a travel tripod with a versatile centre column! The tripod is constructed from aluminium tubing with machined aluminium and magnesium alloy components. The tripod combines reverse folding legs that wrap around the center column providing a more compact unit for transportation, while it also has a versatile centre column that can be removed from its conventional vertical position and can be swung through a 180º arc and locked into place at any point, which when combined with the three position leg angle settings makes this tripod perfect for low-level macroMACROProducing photographs that render extreme close-ups of extremely small subjects like insects, hence its popularity among nature photographers. It requires using a macro lens with a large reproduction (magnification) ratio of at least 1:1, which renders a subject larger than life size. Macro lenses are capable of focussing at extremely short distances (some as little as a few centimetres), allowing the photographer to get very close to the subject. photography. Other features include a built-in monopod, easy to use twist leg locks, standard screw-in rubber and stainless spiked feet and a high-quality padded tripod carry case.

Travel-friendly design

Sporting an impressive strength-to-weight ratio, the FGP18A can support up to 10 kg while weighing just 1.6 kg. Usable at either full height or ground level, the tripod can extend up to a maximum height of 154 cm or be lowered down to a minimum height of just 37 cm. Its compact and travel-friendly design can be directly attributed to the reverse folding legs which break the tripod down to just 46 cm in length.


Twist lock legs 

Each of the tripod's legs features a 4-section design allowing for the optional deployment of different leg sections to achieve varying heights. The legs also utilise Benro's sealed travel-friendly design which helps to resist dust and moisture. One of the legs, marked with a blue ring, can also be joined with the centre column to form a monopod - a useful feature for shooting in environments where tripods may not be permitted. The centre column also features a unique lateral arm function which allows the column to tilt horizontally and lock in a wide range of different angles and positions.

The tripod's top plate features a standard 3/8"-16 mounting screw ideal for attaching most common tripod heads. Additionally, the FGP18A includes a carrying case and a set of interchangeable spiked feet for increased stability in dirt, sand, mud, and snow.
