With a length of 12cm (4.72") Benro AC-33 gets really low, given that the tripod legs are expanded to their widest angle.
Benro AC-33 short column is made of Aluminium compatible with the Benro A-2xx series of tripods and you may buy it in two versions.
One version includes just the tube with 3/8"-16 threaded holes at both sides and the full version comes with a top plate and a reversible dual thread 1/4"-20- 3/8"-16 screw stud.
The Short Column
Presented here is the full complete version, plus an extra screw hook for hanging an extra weight like a camera case in order to increase the tripod's stability.
|Benro AC-33 comes boxed without any instructions, wrapped in a nylon bubble sheet.|
(The bottom spring loaded screw hook shown here is an extra accessory).
|The full version comes with a 56 mm top mounting plate and a reversible stud already attached.|
|The top mounting plate is identical to the current A-2xx series tripod top plate and has also three small head-less screws on the perimeter for securing the head to be attached.|
There is nothing special with a center column really, but the reason I present it, is as reference for my other articles where I will try to show alternative uses if combined with the right equipment. Like a very cost effective...
