Benro Travel Angel (Transformer)
In reply to balchinian, Aug 15, 2012

A while ago (3 years), I extensively researched light
-weight tripods to use with the Sigma DP series. I
finally purchased a Benro Travel Angel C-068 without
head, and added a Novoflex Ball 30 head and an
FLM PRP-45 quick release system (the system with
the smallest camera plate).

It seems that the currently available successor of the
moddel I bought is called Travel Angel Transformer
C0681TB00 has a monopod integrated and is not
available without ball-head anymore:

After three years of light use, I am still very happy
with the Benro tripod, and can recommend it
without reservation.

Greetings,
Robert
