Sirui BCH-20 Video Head
Key Features
  • Payload: 22 lb / 10 kg
  • 75mm Half Ball
  • Stepped Counterbalance
  • 0 to 3 Grades of Tilt & Pan Drag
For professional video applications, the Sirui BCH-20 Video Head is based off a 75mm ball mount for use on compatible tripod legs or other accessories such as sliders and jibs. Friction adjustment can be applied in 3 steps, with the 0 setting providing nearly-frictionless movement. A 7-step adjustable counterbalance can compensate for cameras weighing up to 22 pounds. The BCH-20 is controlled with dual rosette-mounted pan handles. Both pan handles easily extend for greater leverage when using heavier cameras. Extra camera-mount screws are kept in 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 tapped holes on the sides of the head. When vacated, these holes can also be used as accessory mounting points. The calibrated camera platform secures the camera plate with dual locks, preventing the camera from accidentally falling off the head during adjustment. To save time when balancing your camera, the platform is etched with calibrated measurements. Aluminum alloy is used in the construction for durability while maintaining a manageable weight.

Does the ball have a flat base to use mounted on a slider?
Asked by: David
Looking at this video (https://youtu.be/EqK5vOcI-6o), at 00:34 I can see there is a flat surface on the bottom of the bowl. My Sachtler FSB-6 has a similar flat surface, so I do believe this would work on a slider after all.

Can a verified owner of this head please share their experiences using this head in actual shooting situations?
Asked by: Claude
Its a heavy duty tripod fluid head. You can't go wrong with the excellent build and performance. A little hefty in weight but worth it.
