Benro™ Announces Availability of New Video Camera Support Systems
Company’s first series of Video Camera Support Systems provide solid and versatile performance for today’s videographers and photographers
North White Plains, NY – October 3, 2012 – Benro, manufacturer of tripods, monopods and heads designed for demanding professional photographers and filmmakers, announces today the availability of new Video Camera Support Systems. Designed exclusively for today’s videographers and photographers, these new systems include both Carbon Fiber and Aluminum Alloy based Tripod Kits and Monopods and S-Series Video Heads.
“As first previewed at NAB 2012, these new Video Camera Support Systems are designed to appeal to both the photographer experimenting with video capture as well as experienced videographers who prefer significantly smaller, more portable camera systems,” said Jan Lederman, President of MAC Group. “Videographers and photographers can rest assured that these new Video Camera Support Systems will securely stabilize their video camera equipment.”
Offering exceptional rigidity and torque-resistance that’s critical to smooth camera movement, these tripod and monopod kits are available in a variety of sizes, using both durable Carbon Fiber and Aluminum Alloy legs in combination with strategically select cast and machined aluminum and magnesium alloy components.
Benro Video Tripod Kits
The lightweight and compact customizable Benro Video Tripod Kits feature S-Series Video Heads available in three weight load capacities, matching Quick-Release (QR) Plate, Panning Handle, aluminum alloy or carbon fiber legs and a padded travel case for added protection. Each Benro Video Tripod Kit is based on an eighth-generation design of single leg tubes and flip-lever leg lock mechanisms for rapid access and tear-down. In addition, a sliding center column with an integral 60mm bowl allows fine camera positioning on vertical and angular axis for properly located and level panning.
Multi-angle locks let each leg angle be set independently for further rapid adjustment and to accommodate irregular terrain. Removable rubber feet can be interchanged with a set of included stainless-steel spikes to ensure footing on virtually any surface, and a retractable hook on the bottom of the center column provides a place to hang a camera bag or other weight to provide additional stability. These tripod kits are available now in prices ranging from $200 – $465.
