Thread: Self Leveling Tripod Benro

    Re: Self Leveling Tripod Benro

    For me, the Benro Theta is a cool modular tripod with lots of great features. And it's worth the money. It's not a disposable tool. Buy it and enjoy it. All you have to do is use it with care.

    I dislike anything that needs batteries

    I need to buy another case of landfill

    I do use DIGI

    but my DR has none

    Give us a complete review, including what happens when the batterers die

    But we are talking tripods here. They don't get used with care - they get set up in the middle of rivers, on snow fields, in mud, set in the middle of the road and hit by a truck. They take tumbles down the side of a mountain. They get packed in luggage and 'inspected' and promptly dropped on concrete floors, head first.

    I can't think of any photographic equipment that sees harder use.

    And this thing is battery powered - hope it has a removable corrosion resistant battery box. It will see intermittent use, be put away with the batteries still in it and corrode in the cupboard for a season or a year.

    Maybe you're right. Everyone has different conditions for working with photographic equipment. But once upon a time, people used push-button mobile phones that could open beer and even crack a walnut (reliability). But now everyone has a smartphone in their pocket, which is scary to accidentally drop on the ground at least once (because it is very delicate and fragile), although reliable push-button phones are still sold in stores.
