Tripod Head / Camera Mount
Posted 01 September 2006 - 03:48 PM
I currently have quite a heavy duty tripod but the head is not nearly sturdy enough for my arri 16bl. I have seen quite a few mounts like this in books but i don't know what they are called.
This looks like the sort of thing i need, could someone explain to me what it is called. Also if anyone has suggestions for something else that makes a good head/mount please give me some details.

The BBC used Ronford F4 fluid heads with the Arri 16BL. You should be able to get one for a good price, they were extremely well built. Most 150mm bowl fluid heads should handle the 16BL.

btw, thanks for the book reference, I'll have to buy that since Kubrick is one of my fav film makers.
