Tripod: Benro Tortoise Columnless #3 with GX35 Ball Head

The small but solid Tortoise tripod from Benro is a great option for keeping things steady on real estate shoots. Made of lightweight but tough carbon fiber, the Tortoise has no center column so, when folded up, it has a diameter of just 3.1 inches, which is perfect for stuffing in a backpack for location shoots. With a load capacity of over 33 pounds but tipping the scales at just above four pounds itself, the Tortoise seriously punches above its weight. To ensure quick setup, you can adjust the angle of the Tortoise’s legs with one button while three-step self-adaptive feet add ground stability. We’d recommend pairing the tripod with Benro’s GX35 Dual Panoramic Ball head, which is a low-profile head that allows panning from its base and from the quick release platform. Controls are simple with a with ball friction adjustment built into the main lock knob and an independent pan lock.
