How does this compare to the Sachtler Ace M? It seems that they are very similar, but the Benro is almost $300 less. I assume the Sachtler's build quality is a bit better.
Asked by: Joshua
I don't know about the Sachtler, but this tripod is a great value for the money. They head is decent, and works well for the C100 MKII B-cam we use frequently. Tripod is lightweight, and travels well. The added travel bag included increases the value even further.

question

Is the head removable?
Asked by: Alex S.
I just spoke with Benro tech support who says the 75mm ball mount can be removed, so that the BV6 head can be flat mounted to a 3/8x16 connection. I want to use this head with my slider, which does not have a ball mount.

question

Is the head removable? If so, what is the length of the legs when folded with the head removed? Are the legs sturdy enough to use a 24 slider on them?
Asked by: Simon
The head is removable It can hold a 24 slider. The folded length of the whole system is 31 and the head is about 6 alone, so about 25 folded.
