Horus Bennu tripod – 747X leg, LX-1T ball head


747 leg develops loose free play on telephoto lens. It uses rubber type material on the ball head contact so the camera always sinks in view finder. This is annoying feature. Do expensive tripods solid head contact?


Horus Bennu is Korean camera equipment company. Factories in main land China produces OEM products of Horus Bennu. The company should build all its products in Korea it they want to advocate ‘Made in Korea.’ It’s rubbish saying “we design them here so these are made in Korea.” Transnational corporation does it all the time to maximize the profit.

747X leg: maximum weight – 18kg
LX-1T ball head: maximum weight – 12kg

Product explanation is here. The company only uses Korean but the demo pictures explain features well.

Loosening top nob releases tension of the mounting plate holder. Then slides out the plate to install camera. The middle nob controls of the spherical movement of the head. The plate can bent up to ninety degree. The bottom nob controls horizontal movement of the head.

Turning the rubber shoes all the way up makes the metal spike comes out.
