Weighing a mere 0.8 pounds, the Benro S2 Video Head is a compact video head capable of supporting cameras weighing up to 5.5 lb. It has 360° panning rotation for smooth camera moves. There are separate pan and tilt lock levers for lock off shots. The sliding Quick Release (QR) plate on the S2 moves forward and backward to balance the camera. In order to prevent the camera from accidentally falling, the S2 comes with a safety lock for the QR Plate. The switch has to be manually depressed in order to remove the plate from the head.
The integrated bubble level aids in setting up level horizons. The adjustable pan handle can be mounted to either side of the head using the built in mounting rosettes. The S2 can be mounted to ball adapters, tripods, and other camera supports via the 3/8" threaded female receiver on the 60 mm magnesium alloy flat base.
Reap the benefits of a monopod with the stability of a tripod using the Benro A38TD Series 3 Aluminum Monopod with 3-Leg Locking Base. Able to hold up to 39.7 lb and extend to 64", the A38TD Series 3 is a versatile camera support thanks to its base which provides three solid points of contact with the ground. The base acts like a mini tripod, and its ball joint allows you to smoothly pan and tilt your camera. If using a pan head on the monopod, the base's ball joint can be locked so that you can pan with the head independently, or you can replace the base with the included rubber foot. The four leg sections are secured by twist locks, and it folds down to 21.3" for transport.
