Benro C373FBS8 Overview
The Benro C373F Series 3 CF Video Tripod & S8 Head is a lightweight tripod system featuring carbon fiber tripod legs and a flat base head supporting up to 17.5 lb. A half ball adapter is included for mounting the head on the tripod legs, but the adapter is removable so you can attach the head on sliders and other support gear via a 3/8″-16 thread on the bottom. The legs extend from 14.5 to 64″, and the entire system weighs only 10 lb. Opening fully to the minimum height conveniently allows for stable, low-angle shooting.
Designed to give you more precise control, the head provides 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. You can pan a full 360° and tilt forward/backward 90/70°. The head also features a four-step adjustable counterbalance that helps compensate for different-sized cameras and adapts to payloads with varying centers of gravity.
The legs have a two-stage, three-section design with three discreet stops for locking at different degrees of spread, and multi-angle, flip-lever leg locks which allow each leg to be positioned independently for quick setup and uneven terrain. The legs have rubber feet, but come with stainless-steel spiked feet that can be installed for use on soft surfaces.
Both the head and legs offer a bubble level. The head also provides two 3/8″-16 accessory mounting threads for directly attaching monitor arms and other gear. A pan bar is included, and an optional second one can be attached on the other side.
