Hey guys! I'm new here. I was just looking for some advice on a tripod/head. I'm getting a great deal on an Arri-S and I was wondering if any of you had any ideas on a good, steady tripod for it. I'd really like to keep it under $5k. I'd assume they wouldn't need to support that much weight since it seems to be a fairly standard 16mm camera. Anyway, thanks in advance! :)

I'm partial to a good old O'Connor 50D which can be had with sticks for around 1K. It's a very night fluid head and built like a tank. Check with Visual Products out in Ohio; it's where I got mine and I haven't been let down at all by 'er (i use it for my SR3, Konvas 2m, and EX1 without issue)

I know a bunch of people who use a sachtler 7+7 head. Also I like the bogen 516, haven't tried the 524 yet, but I'm sure that'll work fine too. Be careful with the tripod adapter screw length on the Arri S...
