Benro Announces TablePod Flex and KoalaPod Tripods
Benro has revealed a new range of tripods in recognition of the evolution of creatives and to meet the demands with new support and stabilisation solutions. Say hello to the all-new Benro TablePod Flex and Benro KoalaPod tripods.
The New Benro TablePod Flex tripod integrates tough carbon fibre with flexible legs that offer a modular system that promises to allow users to set-up and in a number of formats. Users can mix the flex legs with the carbon fibre legs to make up individual configurations that can be used as you’d expect with a traditional tripod, or can be wrapped around an object for use in almost any location. AIn a unique innovation from Benro, the flexible legs can be stored inside the rigid carbon legs when not in use.
The TablePod Flex kit comes complete with an arca-compatible ballhead with a 360° pan rotation, built-in pan scale, quick release plate for easy camera attachment, along with two built-in 90° notches to allow the head to be quickly be switched between Landscape and Portrait. The head also features two ¼”mounts that allow users to attach additional accessories or, interestingly, to connect the flex legs to use as accessory arms.
What’s in the Box?
Included within the kit are the 3 flex legs, a set of 3 feet, a smartphone holder with a cold shoe mount to take most smartphones, along with a case and carabiner. There’s also an auxiliary locking ring to help the flexible legs to lock.
Folding up to a compact size, [just 30.5cm], this kit weighs less than half a kilo, [0.43kg to be precise] and will support up to 3kg, making it very portable and useful for all kinds of applications. Think photography, video, live streaming, virtual meetings, and this could be the perfect companion for you.

The TablePod Flex Kit is available now and comes in at £140 [inc VAT].
