Weighing a mere 0.8 lb, the Benro S2 Video Head is a compact video head capable of supporting cameras weighing up to 5.5 lb. It has 360° panning rotation for smooth camera moves. There are separate Pan and Tilt Lock levers for lock off shots. The sliding Quick Release (QR) plate helps to balance the camera, and the S2 Video Head comes with a safety lock for the QR Plate.

The integrated bubble level aids in setting up level horizons. The adjustable Pan Handle can be mounted to either side of the S4 Video Head using the built in mounting rosettes. The S2 Video Head can be mounted to Ball Adapters, Tripods, and other Camera supports via the 3/8" threaded female receiver on the 60 mm magnesium alloy flat base.

    Good less expensive alternative

    By Nogoodnecktie

    from Rochester NY

    Comments about Benro S2 Video Head:

    If you have the money get a manfroto. If not this is a decent alternative. It's small and light. The tilt is ok the pan is a tad stiff and wants to come back. This only supports about 5lbs so keep that in mind

    Comments about Benro S2 Video Head:

    If your looking for a great head with nearly perfectly fluid pans and tilts, this is it. Very solid piece of gear. Only flaw is the tilt lock doesn't lock down so easily, needs a few strong turns. Would be a problem for heavier loads. For lightweight DSLRs and the average lens this would not be a problem.

      Comments about Benro S2 Video Head:

      Manfrotto head's screw diameter doesn't really fit with Benro tripod. I bought this to solve it, but this head just isn't good. It's too stiff in panning and tilting. Also, it doesn't stop when you pan or tilt. It comes back a little bit. Very hard to use. I'm going back to Manfrotto head. I just wasted money buying this one. Benro needs more R&D on video tripod head.
