The Benro 100mm Hi-Hat is a versatile video production tool that allows for unique camera placement and comes in a portable package. This aluminum leg/magnesium bowl hi-hat can be placed low to the ground, on stairs or even secured to a wooden board.
The small footprint allows the hi-hat to be used in tight spaces and on smaller surface areas. 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 is telescoping for adjusting the height. When you combine these two features, you can easily set up the hi-hat for use on uneven terrain and even stairs.
The 100mm version will accept a 100mm video head and includes a 3/8"-16 low profile tie down adapter for getting low to the ground shots. You can add a 100mm half-ball adapter (BL100) to mount any standard 3/8"-16 flat base video head or photo head. The large rubber feet are 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 come in handy for attaching monitor arms. Each 3/8"-16 male to ¼"-20 female insert can be used to convert any standard ¼"-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.
