The 03C + GX25 Kit is part of Benro’s small but mighty carbon fibre Tortoise tripod kits. Designed to be lightweight and ultra-compact whilst maintaining excellent stability on all grounds, this little tripod punches above its weight when it comes to load capacity. The smallest in this series, the 03C has a maximum load capacity of 8kg. The column-free design gives space for more nimble movements and reduced camera shake. The GX25 has dual-panoramic modes and ergonomic knobs, all constructed out of durable aluminium. The combination of these two accessories makes the ideal travel companion to any photographer or videographer.
Tortoise tripods have no central column which makes them extremely portable. With a diameter of just 8cm and folded down height of 30cm, this tripod can fit easily inside a backpack or travel luggage. The braided carbon fibre composite spider leg design is adaptive to a range of leg angle adjustments, simply depress the pre-locking button for full movement until you reach the desired angle.
Easy twist locks make deployment of the tripod fast and effortless so that you can spend more time focusing on getting that perfect shot. The legs are incredibly adaptive to fit in a range of environments meaning that you will never find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Included in this kit is the GX25 Ball Head. The low-profile design of which allows for a much heavier payload. The ball head is perfect for smooth, controllable camera movement, ideal for the dual-panoramic mode which allows the head to pan 360-degrees from the quick-release platform, as well as from the base of the head.
Dual inclined internal lock rings are 30% stronger than previous models, for increased security of your kit whilst mounted. Additionally, calibration marks allow you to replicate movements with precise accuracy in quick succession.
Be prepared for any location with a choice of spiked or rubber feet. Choose rubber feet for grip on smooth surfaces such as wood flooring and rock. Or, opt for the spiked feet on softer surfaces such as grass. The Tortoise 03C is adaptive to all of these environments.
Choose between either the 1/4" or 3/8" camera/head attachment screw. Simply depress the thread to reveal the smaller option and attach your camera. Add on additional accessories into any of the three 1/4" threads in the main casting. Ideal for screens or phone holders.

Ball heads allow for smoother and more versatile panning options compared to traditional three-way pan-tilt heads. Smaller, more precise adjustments can also only be achieved on a ball head. Additionally, they also have increased stability and can take heavier payloads.
There is a range of benefits to having a smaller tripod in your bag, Firstly, it can pack down incredibly small for easy transportation almost anywhere. Secondly, smaller tripods are great for product or macro photography where you are wishing to get low down and close up, as well as shooting in scenarios with adverse environments where a wider leg base may not be practical.
