My TOP new BMCC RIG.... Now I need a heavy tripod!!!
on Feb 11, 2015 at 1:41:21 am

Got this great Rig for my BMCC.

thing is its way too heavy for the tripod I lend from my friend (Mamfroto).

Any one suggest a good heavy tripod with smooth pan and tilt. Around US 1000,-, maybe even second hand?

My rig is like 8 kilos right now (incl canon 24-70 2.8 lens, follow focus, matt box and Marschal monitor).



Last shoot the tripod fell 2 times, lucky that the camera man caught both times.

Vinten pro 10 but that won't be $1000...

You can get a second hand Miller DS-2 tripod with a 75mm bowl (good to 25 kilos) for $425... and a second hand Gitzo 1380 "Fluide" fluid head (good to 10 kilos) for $649US.

That should keep your camera from tipping over!

Good luck,

Miller is a well known professional brand. We use them where I work. Gitzo - not so much.

Top pro brands are:

O'Connor
Vinten
Cartoni
Sachtler
Miller

Another option is this almost new Benro A674TMH10 with a 100mm bowl and 10 kg capacity for $959.50...

Benro is a relatively new brand that has received very favorable reviews:









Again, hope this is helpful!

For my BMCC rig I bought a Monfrotto 504HD head and Induro Alloy M8 legs, $675 total.

Sadly, Ali says his rig weighs 8 kg - while the 504HD's load capacity is only 7.5 kg. Probably not robust enough to meet his needs.

For the money, a used Miller Compass, Sachtler DV 10, Sachtler FSB-8, or Manfrotto 509HD.

I picked up a beat up Cartoni Delta with carbon sticks for $1300 and spent another $500 getting it serviced. Ebay is your friend.
