For shooting video it’s important to have a fluid head, and if you’re shooting on location you’ll want it to be lightweight. To meet this need Sirui has announced the VA-5 Ultra-Compact Fluid Video Head weighing in at 1.3 lbs while holding up to 6.6 lbs. The VA-5 fluid head utilizes two bubble levels – one on the base of the head for tripod alignment and one on the top for camera alignment. An internal spring-assisted counter-balance provides for smooth 360° pans and +90°/-70° tilts. The VA-5 includes a TY-70A Quick release plate and offers a dual safety lock system.

for Professional Quality Videos
The new Sirui VA-5 Ultra-compact Fluid Video Head satisfies that demand perfectly. This precision-machined, forged aircraft grade aluminum alloy video head is lightweight (only 1.3 lb.), rugged, and designed to hold up to 6.6 lb.!
SIRUI designed the fluid head tilt mechanism to let you steplessly adjust resistance – producing a smooth, professional look with heavy or lightweight systems. And an internal spring-assisted counter-balance mechanism provides added support, smoother tilt movements and protection of your equipment.
The SIRUI VA-5 comes with the TY-70A Quick Release Plate and can use all SIRUI TY Series photo quick release plates and most Arca compatible plates.
The SIRUI VA-5 Video Head performs equally well on photo or video tripods. The SIRUI VA-5 is well suited for use with spotting scopes, providing fast, smooth tracking and easy operation. The SIRUI VA-5 also makes a perfect video outfit when combined with Sirui P-S Series Multi-function Photo/Video Monopods.
