Benro have announced that they will be introducing 75mm and 100mm video hi-hats for filmmakers at NAB 2016. Both sizes will be on hand for live demonstrations at Central Hall Booth #C1307.
Both the 75mm and 100mm hi-hats feature a small footprint that allows them to be used in tight spaces and on smaller surface areas. These aluminum leg/magnesium bowl hi-hats can be placed low to the ground, on stairs or even secured to a wooden board.
Each leg can be independently positioned at one of the three locks located on the outside of the bowl. In addition, each leg features oversized rubber twist locks and telescoping sections for height adjustments. When combined, these two features allow for easy set up on uneven terrain and stairs.
Accepts Video Heads & Half-ball Adapters
The 75mm version will accept a 75mm video head and includes a 3/8″-16 low profile, tie-down adapter for getting low to the ground shots. A 75mm half-ball adapter (BL75) can be added to mount any standard 3/8″-16 flat base video head or photo head.
Likewise, the 100mm version will accept a 100mm video head and also includes a 3/8″-16 low profile, tie-down adapter for getting low to the ground shots. A 100mm half-ball adapter (BL100) can be added to mount any standard 3/8″-16 flat base video head or photo head.
Both models feature large rubber feet attached to a metal ball joint for quick positioning, which can be removed for attaching the included metal spiked feet. The feet also have pre-drilled holes for securing to wooden octagon boards when using on top of apple boxes or securing the board to the top of a ladder. There are three accessory mounts on the outside of the bowl so you can attach monitor arms. Each 3/8″-16 male to 1/4″-20 female insert can be used to convert any standard 1/4″-20 screw to 3/8″-16 in addition to being removed for attaching 3/8″-16 accessories. Transporting the hi-hat is easy with the included carrying case.
Needing no special setup or tools, the Benro Hi-Hat has been engineered to smoothly fit the workflow of today’s on-the-go filmmakers straight out of the box.
