Benro Tablepod Flex Kit 4

If you’re in the habit of using your mobile phone to film yourself or events, it can be a recurring problem of finding somewhere to set up where your phone isn’t going to fall over or somewhere where you just can’t get the right angle. You end up resorting to someone else holding it for you leading to wobbly camera work or having to fiddle about with a video editor forever just to get it looking right. Frustrating to say the least!

This tripod comes with an innovative way of getting round these problems. Within the rigid carbon fibre legs are 3 flexible legs that you can easily remove. These can be swapped around freely with the rigid legs and attached to the end of them, giving you almost limitless ways to get your device in exactly the place that you need it. There are rubber feet to provide more stability if using for video recording or conferencing and you also get a clip that allows you to secure two of the legs together, giving even more stability. As well as this, there is an auxiliary ring that you can slip over two legs to further aid in gaining and keeping that crucial angle.

The mobile phone mount can fit most mobile devices securely but there’s one feature that really stands out for me and this is the fact that the ends of the legs have ¼” screws allowing you to add other things (with that size thread obviously!) such as a light to the whole set up, really increasing the versatility of this kit. The mount also has a 360° rotation on it and there is a simple set up to switch between landscape and portrait mode. It comes in its own bag and conveniently packs away for ease of transport.
