Benro Introduces BVX Heavy-Duty Broadcast Tripods

Benro’s BVX consists of two new professional heavy-duty carbon fiber video tripod and head combinations: the BVX16CFK and BVX25CFK.

Benro said the BVX16H video head supports up to 35 pounds (16Kg) and the 100mm bowl tripod has a maximum load capacity of 132 pounds (60Kg). The BVX25H video head supports up to 55 pounds (25Kg) and the 100mm bowl tripod has a maximum load capacity of 132 pounds (60Kg).

The BVX16CFK provides eight-steps of counterbalance and the BVX25CFK has 16 individual steps of counterbalance allowing users to dial in the right amount of counterbalance required for each setup.

Each step is repeatable which helps save time when changing lenses or adding accessories. The pan drag and tilt drag mechanisms each provide six individual steps of drag adjustment to help fine tune the smooth movements. A sliding top plate with a snap-in style quick release can be shifted forward or backward to help properly balance the camera rig.

The carbon fiber tripod is a two stage, three section tandem style which incorporates a 100mm bowl. The leg locks are oversized levers that can be operated while wearing gloves.

The lower stage leg lock lever has an additional lip, which can be opened and closed with a foot. This allows users to hold onto a camera rig while adjusting the height of the tripod. Each tripod includes a floor spreader, a telescoping pan arm and a padded carrying case.
