First Look: Benro S8 Pro Video Fluid Head and Induro 75mm Mini Tripod

NAB is behind us but we still get some interesting videos of new products which were introduced during the show this year. 2 new interesting products from Benro and Induro are shown in the video above and caught our eye.

The first is a smaller version of the Induro Mini Tripod (also known as a Hi-Hat Tripod). The original version was  100mm and the version shown on this video is a smaller 75mm version with some very nice features including a low hat position. It can hold a 165 pounds of equipment and has a very sturdy build.

You can see a few of the things that you can do with this small tripod on this NextWaveDV video


The second product show on the (first) video is the Benro S8 Pro video fluid head. This is a new version of Benro’s S series (which includes the small S2, the S4, S6 and now the large and more advanced S8).

You can see a separate demo of the S8 alone on another video from NAB


We are hoping to have a chance to test both these products later this year.

As for pricing:

  • The Induro DR Hi-Hat Tripod cost just under $250 on B&H.
  • The Benro S8 Pro Video Head also sell for just under $250 on B&H.

You can find lots more new products and gear on our HDSLR channel here on LensVid.
