I own a Benro tripod and I have been shopping for Induro tripods. While researching Induro, I found many posts on different forums stating that Induro products are manufactured by Benro and just branded with a different name.
When trying to find lower prices on Ebay, I noticed that Benro tripods are available from Chinese sellers at heavily discounted prices and Induro tripods are not.
MAC Group it the US distributor of Benro, Induro, and other popular brands of photography gear. I contacted them through their Twitter account and asked about the availability of Benro vs. Induro on EBay.
I was told that Benro & Induro are separate companies, Benro does not manufacture Induro, and the only thing they have in common is that they are distributed by the MAC Group.
Can anyone point me to some factual information showing that Benro and Induro products are manufactured by the same company?
