I went down to Film tools and they didn't have the head for it. In fact I don't even know what kind of head it needs. Anyone know? Thanks

Almost any fluid head tripod that can handle a 2/3" broadcast camera should be OK. I wouldn't use anything less than a 100 mm bowl tripod. However, buying one of these tripods new is likely to cost more than your camera, so I'd check out used tripods unless you're planing using it with another camera.

There wasn't a particular head for the Arri 16BL as such (although Arri used to make heads and people often used their 35mm heads modified with fluid drives), it was more a matter of personal taste as to which make of head you preferred because they all handled differently.

The 75mm tripods for 1/3" video cameras are too light for the Arri 16 BL.

I have an Arri 16BL, and this is what I use with it quite successfully.
It's available at B&H for under $600. and easily handles a 33lb camera.
