The Smith-Victor CF500 66" Carbon Fiber Tripod with BH8 Ball Head bundles the Smith-Victor CF500 Tripod with the BH8 Ball Head. It is best suited for all SLR, advanced or large point & shoot, medium format, and full-sized video cameras. This is the largest model of carbon fiber tripod within the Smith-Victor Black Diamond series. It has high working height and weight capacity which comes with a moderate increase in overall weight and size.

The CF500 is a solid shoulder-height tripod that uses carbon fiber technology for its leg construction. Carbon fiber is significantly lighter than aluminum, yet still maintains the same support level. It will absorb vibrations better than aluminum.

This CF-series tripod features individual leg angle adjustments, a reversible center column with spring loaded weight hook, foam leg grips, It includes a padded shoulder strap and carrying case.

The Smith-Victor BH8 Ball Head with Quick Release is a rugged and well-designed ball head. All knobs feature a comfortable knurled rubber gripping surface. In addition to the large single-action locking knob, the BH8 also features two smaller knobs. One controls the 360° panning control, and the other the amount of ball friction.

The BH8 Ball Head comes with a universal quick release clamp that is compatible with all Arca-type plates.
