Benro BV8 overview

  • 1Description

The Benro BV8 Twin-Leg Aluminum Tripod Kit is a complete tripod system ideal for studio applications and handling larger camera rigs weighing up to 17.6 pounds. The kit pairs the 75mm-ball BV8 video head with a twin-leg aluminum tripod. The BV8 head features a 5-step counterbalance system to dial in the correct amount for your setup, and independent 4-step pan and tilt drag settings for precise control over camera movements. A Manfrotto 501/504PL compatible sliding quick release plate is provided. All the main controls aside from counterbalance are located on the left side of the head, making it easy to make adjustments with a single hand while operating the camera. For added versatility, the 75mm ball tie-down stud is removable to convert the head to a flat base for use on a slider or other support device.

The 2-stage, 3-section twin-leg aluminum tripod incorporates a 75mm bowl and offers sturdy support for the BV8 head. It features oversized quick positive leg locks for simple and fast setup, an adjustable/removable mid-level spreader, and dual spiked feet with removable rubber pads. The tripod system extends to a maximum height of 63", while getting as low as 28". A carry case and shoulder strap are included.

Benro BV8 reviews

BV8 Twin-Leg Aluminum Tripod Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally a decent spreader I thought i do a review for this one since there was nothing here when i toke a chance and ordered mine. I was originally looking at the one with the S8 head but after trying at a store i noticed way too much flex on the legs when all the way up. So i decided to get the Bv8 which came with a great bag that actually turns in to a backpack, (Yes, you read right, see pic) The bag also has thick wrap around Velcro straps to secure the tripod that do nothing but get in your way. (i'm cutting those out) The tripod is solid and smooth, no flex on the legs, the head could use a bit more drag and a light on the leveling bubble but again, if you're the real deal I'm sure you carry a small flashlight right beside your headphones and multi-tool. Counterbalance is great it hold my FS5 rig which weights 13 pounds This is the first tripod i know that has a similar center spread to the ones that costs $$$. Overall very happy with it, i would give it 5 stars if it had a light and more drag.
