The popular HD series of 3-Way tripod heads provide more precise camera movement and positioning than ball heads, and now the Benro HD series has been refined, remodelled and offers greater versatility. There are two major changes to the overall design of the head. The first is that it now includes an Arca compatible plate with our Pull/Twist security feature. Many photographers already own tripod kits with heads that are Arca compatible so photographers can swap between Ball Heads and 3-Way Heads without needing to change QR plates. The second upgrade is that the new design now incorporates 3 bubble levels for precise and accurate positioning. Reference scales have also been added to the HD2A and HD3A models so that settings can be easily replicated. All models offer a side tilt range from -90° / +15°, Front and rear tilt range of -35° / +90° and full 360° rotation.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
