The Benbo Trekker Mk 3 is a lighter weight version of the original Benbo 1 design, so it’s easier to carry around. Its (BEnt BOlt) curved bolt locking is adapted from a First World War gun carriage design, and allows independent movement of each leg at virtually any angle, even up against a wall or tree. Because of this, and the sealed lower leg tube which allows immersion in water, they have become a favourite of nature photographers. The swivelling centre column end gives more flexibility when working close to the ground or in confined spaces.
The Trekker Mk3 uses lighter tubing than the Benbo 1, and as a result weighs 40% less, which makes it a much more portable option.
Built-in tilting head platform, which makes low-level operation easier. 1/4" screw connection.
Hook at the other end of the centre column suspends a bag to improve stability in windy conditions.
Mk3 version has geared faces on the main joint to provide firm locking with less tightening pressure, and folds more compactly.
Larger and heavier bottom tubes lower the centre of gravity to improve stability. Tube length 63.5cm (25").
