Professional features for location or studio, designed for more demanding filmmakers and videographers allowing for precise control over the counterbalance, pan drag and tilt drag.
The 5-step counterbalance (steps 0–4) allows you to dial in the correct amount of counterbalance for your set-up. Each step provides a different amount of counterbalance. The 0 settings makes convenient camera balancing during set-up.
The BV8 will balance loads up to 17.6 lb/8kg.
Built-in extra stability.
Both the pan lock and the tilt lock can be turned on or off independently and are located on the operator side of the head for easy control. Tilt range for the BV 8 is +90°/-70.
Sliding Quick Release Plate
The 501/504PL/Ace compatible sliding quick release plate makes it easy to set the balance point of your camera gear, quickly and precisely.
Twist Leg Locks
The tripod height can easily be set by a twist of the quick lock leg levers, which combined with the antirotation legs enable fast and fumble free set-up.
Carrying Case Included
Heavy Duty Case with backpack straps included for handy transport and protection of the tripod and head.
The heads incorporate a 3/8-inch accessory mount, perfect for mounting a simple audio recorder or monitor. For added versatility, the tie down stud is removable to convert the BV 10 or BV8 head to flat base mode for mounting to a slider.
Independent Pan and Tilt Drag
The BV10 and BV8 have a 4-step pan and 4-step tilt drag for independent control over each movement, to ensure your movements are smooth and steady.
Excellent stability is achieved with the eighth generation two stage aluminum tripod. The double tandem leg design uses an adjustable, removable spreader, a 75mm metal bowl , oversized quick positive leg locks and dual spike feet with pads, making this kit perfect for heavy loads and rigged cameras.
