Benro S2 overview

  • 1Description

Weighing a mere 0.8 lb, the Benro S2 Video Head is a compact video head capable of supporting cameras weighing up to 5.5 lb. It has 360° panning rotation for smooth camera moves. There are separate pan and tilt lock levers for locked-off shots. The sliding quick release (QR) plate on the S2 moves forward and backward to balance the camera. To prevent the camera from accidentally falling, the S2 comes with a safety lock for the QR plate which must be manually depressed for release.

The integrated bubble level aids in setting up level horizons. The adjustable pan bar can be mounted to either side of the head using the built-in mounting rosettes. The S2 can be mounted to ball adapters, tripods, and other camera supports via the 3/8"-16 threaded female receiver on the 60mm magnesium alloy flat base.

    Benro S2 reviews

    S2 Video Head is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth as Silk, but not for SLIK This lightweight, professional-grade video head is just what you need to upgrade an existing tripod. Just be sure that your tripod has a 3/8 threaded female receiver. (One of my SLIK tripods did not.) This head can also be mounted to ball adapters. Has a smooth mechanism for both tilt and pan, a functional bubble level, and a sliding quick release (QR) plate that slides back and forth, to help balance the camera on the head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for photographers on a budget If your looking for a great head with nearly perfectly fluid pans and tilts, this is it. Very solid piece of gear. Only flaw is the tilt lock doesn't lock down so easily, needs a few strong turns. Would be a problem for heavier loads. For lightweight DSLRs and the average lens this would not be a problem.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell apart! I bought this to change to a video style head on my Benro folding, travel tripod. My second big trip it with it and it literally came apart! In the middle of a 2 month trip to remote parts of Brazil where I had no access to get a replacement. I put it in the back of my vehicle with the rest of my gear while driving and when I went to retrieve, it was in pieces! The tilt screws vibrated out! I was on a dirt road, but I need gear that actually holds up! I followed benros specs about putting it back together, but it won’t lock properly anymore. What a waste! My cheap, little, plastic tripod from a big box store has held up for 15 years! I trust that more!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good less expensive alternative If you have the money get a manfroto. If not this is a decent alternative. It's small and light. The tilt is ok the pan is a tad stiff and wants to come back. This only supports about 5lbs so keep that in mind

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not very good, don't buy this. Manfrotto head's screw diameter doesn't really fit with Benro tripod. I bought this to solve it, but this head just isn't good. It's too stiff in panning and tilting. Also, it doesn't stop when you pan or tilt. It comes back a little bit. Very hard to use. I'm going back to Manfrotto head. I just wasted money buying this one. Benro needs more R&D on video tripod head.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just awesome I love Benro Products. I would give this a fifth star if you could haul a little more weight but other than that it's an amazing video head.
