Benro Launch S6 Video Monopod - Benro has launched a new video Monopod for larger cameras called the S6.
Benro has announced the launch of a new video monopod called the S6.
The S6 is a 3-leg folding base monopod combined with Benro's S6 Video Head for increased weight capacity. Designed for the run-and-gun type videographer who needs mobility when shooting a wedding, live event, news coverage or documentary the Benro video monopod series provides solid support, flexibility and portability.
This heavy duty S6 Video Monopod provides a 13.2 lb payload capacity as well as a 4-step counterbalance that is necessary when working with heavier cameras and longer lenses. The S6 head includes an independent pan lock, which allows the user to pan smoothly without having to turn the entire monopod. Equipped with a 65mm flat base with a 3/8" thread, the S6 video head can be removed from the monopod allowing users to mount the head separately on sliders, jibs or half ball adapters.
Like all Benro video monopods, the S6 monopod features a 3-leg base with pan cartridge for smooth and stable shots along with reverse folding legs for compact travel. "We received a number of requests during the NAB Trade Show earlier this year, for a video monopod that would work with larger cameras," said Brian Hynes, Benro's product marketing manager. "The S6 Video Monopod is the result of that customer feedback."
