"The Benro S8 video tripod kit is jam packed with features that you actually need. Built for HDSLR cameras with rigs and long lenses or the latest video cameras, the S8 kit supports up to 17.6 lb. Equipped with a 75mm flat base with a 3/8"" thread, the S8 becomes a versatile creative tool allowing you remove the 75mm half ball adapter to mount the head separately on sliders, jibs, or monopods. Other features include: pan and tilt lock, pan and tilt drag, 4-step counterbalance, illuminated bubble level and two 3/8"" accessory mounts for attaching monitor arms or audio recorders directly to the head. This allows you to attach accessories without needing a cage or rig to do so. The S8 Video Tripod Kit is based on an eighth-generation design of single leg tubes and flip lever leg lock mechanisms. The tripod itself was made in combination with strategically select cast and machined aluminum and magnesium alloy components. Multi-angle leg locks allow each leg to be positioned independently for quick setup on uneven terrain. The rubber feet can be replaced with a set of stainless-steel spiked feet, which are included. For additional stability there is a weight hook at the bottom of the center column for hanging a camera bag or other weight. S8 Video Tripod Kit Features 4-step Counterbalance Counterbalance will help you counter the weight of your rig or heavy lens. Each step provides a different amount of counterbalance: 0 lb. (0 K"
