It's actually a bit more than 50% OFF for this Benro TMA18C, and a pretty good deal if you're specifically looking for a Carbon Fiber Tripod. Carbon Fiber is typically more expensive as it is rigid but lightweight compared to metal tripods - which make them appealing for travelers and hikers. Another benefit (especially for outdoor and landscape shooters), Carbon Fiber doesn't get quite as cold on the hands when working in sub zero temps. 50% Off is a great deal, but think quickly as Sale Ends Today (found here).


Product details:
Support up to 22 lb worth of gear with the TMA18C Series 1 Mach3 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Benro. Made from 9-layer carbon fiber, the 4-section legs are secured via twist locks and extend to a maximum height of 57.3". The center column can be replaced with the included short column to allow the tripod to reach a minimum height of 11.8". One of the legs unscrews from the tripod, attaches to the center column, and with the addition of an optional head converts to a monopod. The rubber feet can be swapped out for metal spikes so that the tripod can be used on hard surfaces, such as ice, or soft surfaces, like carpeting or a lawn. A ballast hook on the center column allows for the addition of stabilizing weight, and the included carrying case protects the tripod during transport. A 3/8"-16 threaded stud on the mounting platform lets you attach a head of your choice.

Over at WPPI Benro displayed some of their new Benro Video Tripods along with their new S2, S4, and S6 video fluid heads. The unique bit about each video tripod is a half bowl leveling base that sits above the center column. Much like a bowl mount tripod, this gives you the ability to quickly level your shots without bending over and fussing with individual legs. This feature is much appreciated when you have a heavy rig thrown on your tripod. The benefit to the Benro design of course is to still retain the raised center column that gives you extra height without adding overall length when the tripods are folded up.

These new Benro leveling tripods look pretty good, but unfortunately according to Benro the new Video Tripods come as a kit and can't be purchased separately from the heads. Of course, if you wanted to achieve this leveling base with your existing tripod, you could add on this Manfrotto 438 compact leveling base (found here).

The new Benro Video Tripods are already available in both Aluminum or Carbon Fiber legs found via B&H (click here).
