Their range includes lightweight, travel-friendly aluminium tripods that fold back within themselves for an easy fit inside your carry-on luggage and more sturdy carbon fibre tripods that support your heavy DSLR shake-free even with the extended centre column.

Easy & mobile – follow the action with Benro’s smooth panning photo and video monopods.

Shooting sports or wildlife with a long telephoto lens can become tiresome without a monopod to steady your shot. So, depending on your shooting style, having a monopod is an indispensable part of your kit.

It eliminates up and down movement, thereby reducing camera shake during exposure for crisp, clear images/film; yet moves sideways so that you can pan action like a pro. And, if you find yourself in a crowded place, simply continue shooting without worrying that an extra leg might cause a trip hazard.


Pan action like a pro, or shoot in crowded places with an easy to set-up monopod.

Benro monopods cater to all your needs, which makes buying a monopod easy – whether you need a classic, durable carbon fibre monopod to carry the weight of your pro DSLR; OR a compact, lightweight aluminium traveller tripod that folds up to a handy 45cm.
