Why are Video Camera Tripods So Expensive?  The answer, they don't have to be.  You finally have the money to make your first pro camera purchase, maybe a Canon 5D or C300.  Then you have to pick a lens, which is  a small fortune, never mind accessories like video monitors or a matte box.  But you really need to get a decent tripod for really smooth camera moves.  Many pros go right for the high end Sachtler or Cartoni tripods, but they range from $5,000 – $10,000.  Not many people have the extra cash after buying the camera package.  Many of our customers go for the Manfrotto line of tripods.  But want even a better deal.  Check out the Benro line of professional video camera tripods.  They offer more bang for the buck!  You can get a 100mm ball head heavy duty tripod, that will support up to 22 lbs (great for long lens or teleprompter), for just $799.  Already have an expensive tripod, but need a second one?  The Benro BV-10 will amaze you.
