About the Benro S8

The Benro S8 Pro Video Head with Flat Base (3/8"-16 Connection) will attach directly to tripods, monopods, sliders and other camera support equipment with a 3/8"-16 threaded stud. It can also be adapted to 75mm bowl type legs and hi-hats using an adapter, such as the Benro BL75, that is sold separately.

The S8 is a two-way, pan/tilt head designed for video applications and will support cameras weighing up to 17.6lb. Designed to give you better control, the head features stepless, continuous adjustment of both pan and tilt drag, this allows you to dial in the amount of tension you feel most comfortable with for a given shot. It can pan a full 360deg. as well as tilt forward (lens down) 90deg. and backward (lens up) 70deg. To help compensate for cameras weighing different amounts, as well as adapt to payloads with varying centers of gravity, the head also features a four-step (0 - 3), adjustable counterbalance system.
