Overkill tripod for mirrorless ? In: Cameras Posted December 15, 2016 7 hours ago, xenogears said: Manfrotto MHXPRO-2W https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1060928-REG/manfrotto_mhxpro_2w_2_way_pan_tilt_head.html I don't know how I missed this one. It's the perfect fit for mirrorless. But a the same price as the 502, with a plan to use it indoor only, I'm not sure it's a better deal. 3 hours ago, Trek of Joy said: I've had the S8 with the carbon sticks for a year, been shooting mirrorless for years. The head is big, but for the price you're not going to find a better head, its far better than the Manfrottos and others (IMO after trying everything in the same range at B&H). It also has extra mounting points for an arm, wireless receiver and so on. Its a great head. Good to know. But actually, the offers at Benro is kinda confusing : too much references with no true explanation about why they exist. s2 - s4 - s6 : ok they're quite the same, but for different weight: no drag ajustment or counter balance. s8 : flagship with drag ajustment and counter balance, but really big and made for heavy stuff. s7 : succesor of s6 with counter balance and drag ajustment bv4 - bv6 - bv8 : New heads with step drag ajustement and counter balance (more weight = more steps) That's too much choice for me. Why to buy a s6 if a s7 is available ? Why to buy a s*head if the bv*head are better and at the same price ? Why some video tripod are only available in kit, while you can buy a head separately ?
