About this deal

High Performance Twist Locks: The Mach3 TMA37AL utilizes high performance, rubber twist locks for improved ergonomics and resistance to the the elements.

It’s been up the top of mountains getting bashed on rocks, submerged in the sea and in the freezing arctic. Having just bought a Kowa TSN-883 I'm looking at a new tripod - possibly a Benro Mach 3 37C or 38CL, which have good sized tube diameters. I mean, you have to have something that is ideally lightweight, sturdy, rock solid and able to handle the weight of a few thousand pounds worth of photography equipment. A 3/8"-16 thread on top of the tripod allows you to attach any compatible tripod head of your choice.Wherever possible Mach3 tripods employ magnesium castings, making them among some of the lightest tripods currently available. High Performance Twist Locks: The Mach3 TMA47AXL utilizes high performance, rubber twist locks for improved ergonomics and resistance to the the elements. The best thing to do is go to the retailer and test it in all the positions that you would normally use the tripod in and with the head and scope, or camera sitting atop the tripod that you want to test. It does exactly what I want, is not actually that much of a burden to carry on my bag, is a thing of beauty to look at, is rock solid and tall. I've also used it with a 90mm refractor, and it does wiggle a bit more simply due to the distance of weight from the center.

As part of our most advanced range of photo tripods, the Mach3 TMA27A combines classic design with advanced materials. I would guess with your column fully raised the capacity drops to something like 10-15 lbs, raised 1/2 way 20-25 lbs, and all the way down you get the full 35. Magnesium Casting: Wherever possible the Mach3 TMA28C employs magnesium castings making it among some of the lightest tripods on the market.The distillery spent the majority of the 20th century passing between owners and undergoing periods of closure, and in 1983 the distillery is mothballed.

Spiked Feet: A set of Spiked Feet are included with the Mach3 TMA38CL tripod for increase stability when shooting outdoors. Aluminum Legs: The Mach3 TMA28A features aluminum leg construction making it both lightweight and sturdy. Magnesium Casting: Wherever possible the Mach3 TMA28A employs magnesium castings making it among some of the lightest tripods on the market.

P.s I don’t actually sleep with my tripod, It comes into the tent with me but we keep things strictly professional between us! It’s no easy hike considering I am carrying a few days worth of kit, warm clothes, food and water, Camera body, 3 lenses and tripod. Raising the centre column (which I have done, despite the height) is as easy as a twist of the big blue collar and then pull.

The Mach3 family of tripods utilize high performance, rubber twist locks for improved ergonomics and resistance to the elements. I don’t like to do reviews until I’ve been using a piece of equipment for a while, as it can take some time to get used to it and it doesn’t seem right to review something after only a week. Finding some quiet time in the mountains is what I have loved when wild camping, it gives me the chance to slow down as I’m not rushing to get to the location trying to beat the light. I have tried the Mach3 tripod in all sorts of configurations: legs fully extended, legs fully retracted, different angles for the legs, but nothing seems to improve the dampening. High performance twist locks and magnesium castings make this aluminum tripod ideal for indoor or outdoor photo shoots.The 88lbs options should be significantly better with my setup, although I am still disappointed the Benro's load capacity of 35. It depends on how thick the legs are to a degree, 4 leg sections can mean the lower legs are getting quite thin and flexy so sometimes a centre column would be just as good and is easier to use - just one extension to play with rather than 3. The only downside of such tripods is a closed length of about 62-65cm, plus the head, but that's okay for my needs.
