Benro announces new high-end Carbon Fibre Video Tripod Kit
Developed for use by professional film makers, live broadcasters and commercial film producers, the new Benro BRC373TS8 Video Tripod Kit is manufactured from high quality 8 layer Carbon Fibre with a breaking point of 134.1 kgs and has magnesium alloy castings.
Supplied in the UK and Ireland by exclusive distributor Kenro, the new Kit includes tripod, head and carry case.
Continuous Pan Drag System: The head has independent pan and tilt drag adjustments, with convenient and accurate operation.
Locking System: There are independent functional locking knobs for pan, tilt and quick release plate, with easy operation and convenient control.
Counterbalance System: There are 4 different steps for head counterbalance. Each step provides a different amount of counterbalance: 0Kg, 2.5Kg, 5.0Kg, 8.0Kg
Adjustable leg position: The legs lock in the standard operational position. This can be overridden allowing the legs to be opened and the tripod to be used at lower heights for lower level photography also to compensate against uneven terrain.
Hand grip: The tripod has a comfortable padded grip on one leg lined with soft NBR (Nitrile Butadiene Rubber).
Water Resistant Rubber Lock Grips and Anti Rotation Leg Locking System: This Tripod features Benro's rust and weather resistant rubberised leg locking grips. This coupled with Benro's anti rotating leg design enables fast adjustments to be made.
Spirit level: This ensures the tripod is level. There is a built in light to assist in darkness or poor lighting conditions.
Tripod Head: This tripod is matched with the professional model S8b head. This is mounted into an adjustable bowl on the tripod. The head features a quick release plate, counterbalance adjustment, spirit level light, adjustable drag control and supports cameras up to 8 kgs.
Carry Case Included: The tripod is supplied complete with a durable carrying case with straps for ease of transportation and added protection. This Tripod is supplied with both Rubber and Spiked Feet.
Says Paul Kench, Kenro's managing director: "Video producers require absolute stability combined with the flexibility of speed and lighter weight when working in the field. The Benro BRC373TS8 Video Tripod Kit fits the bill perfectly in an ever-growing and increasingly demanding market place."
SRP of the Kit is £756 incl VAT, while the S8 Head on its own has an SRP of £264 incl VAT.
