Benro today announced its new Aero 7 compact video tripod which can support weights up to 15 lbs (7 kg). The Aero 7 features a reverse-folding leg design, setting it apart form previous Aero models. This allows for folding into a smaller, more compact package and easy transformation into a monopod.

The Aero 7 comes with a removable flat-base S7 video head and a new 2-in-1 center column, making it a fully featured tripod for medium-sized rigs in a compact form factor. The center column also converts to a short column for low angle shots, providing more versatility for filmmakers and videographers on location. One of the Aero 7’s legs can be unthreaded and attached to the center column to transform into a fully functioning video monopod. The Aero 7 in aluminium will set you back $399, the carbon fiber version is $599.

Introducing the Aero 7 from Benro

A Compact Travel Video Tripod for On-The-Go Filmmakers

Expanding on the success of their Aero Family of travel-friendly video tripods, Benro is pleased to announce the new Aero 7, a compact and portable video tripod capable of supporting up to 15 lbs (7 kg). The first manufacturer in the world to introduce a travel video tripod with a reverse folding leg design, Benro’s Aero 7 is a clear evolution from its other Aero siblings. In addition to its standard ability to reverse fold to a smaller, more compact size and transform into a video monopod, the inclusion of the removable flat base S7 video head and the new 2-in-1 center column makes the Aero 7 a great traveling companion for filmmakers and videographers needing a fully featured tripod for their medium-sized rigs

In addition to the standard leveling adapter, the 2-in-1 center column also converts to a short column for low angle shots. This provides more versatility for filmmakers and videographers who are looking to get more out of their tripods when either on location or when they are unable to bring other gear with them.

A tripod and monopod combination

For even more versatility, one of the Aero 7’s legs can be unthreaded and joined with the tripod’s center column to become a fully functioning video monopod. Combined with the Aero 7’s fully featured S7 Video Head, this truly makes for a powerful combination.
