For professional video applications, the Sirui BCH-30 Video Head is based off a 100mm ball mount for use on compatible tripod legs or other accessories such as sliders and jibs. Friction adjustment can be applied in 7 steps, with the 0 setting providing nearly-frictionless movement. A 13-step adjustable counterbalance can compensate for cameras weighing up to 39 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.

question

Is the Sirui BCH-30 video head compatible with common/affordable Manfrotto 501 style quick release plates, or does it use a proprietary quick release plate? I have many pieces of gear that interface with Manfrotto 501 plates, so I hope they will fit this video head.
Asked by: David
Yes. You may have to remove the end-stop pin (I did) but it fits perfectly.

I've bought the Manfrotto 319SH tie down and it does not work with the screw on the bch-30. And now from what i've read here the sachtler tie down knob doesn't work either. Has anyone found a good tie down for this thing? I really want to use it on a hi hat but the locking handle it comes with is too big.

Since the sachtler tie down knob doesn't work and now I've found that the manfrotto 319SH doesn't work either, has anybody found a working tie down knob for this thing? I really want to use a hi hat but the locking handle the head comes with is too long.
Asked by: Michael
Unfortunately this manufacturer does not make a short ties down for their tripod heads and none of the other brands seem to be compatible

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.
