Sirui VA-5 Video Head

Sirui VA-5 Video Head

$15 mail in rebate!

The ultra compact VA-5 pan head from Sirui (sue-ray) is the perfect backcountry head to use with larger spotting scopes (65mm and up). With maximum load capacity of up to 6.6 lbs it is the ideal fluid video head for use with high end spotting scopes, DSLR system cameras, and camcorders. With its advanced fluid system, it allows for a soft, quiet and vibration-free pan and tilt when glassing those high country bucks.


The tilt friction can be adjusted continuously while the rotary pan motion friction is fixed. A spring loaded counter balance allows the head to hold its position without lock down in most instances. The head is extremely smooth and allows for very precise adjustments to be made and is intuitive to use. The Safety Lock system prevents accidental removal of the release plate. The head comes with 1 Arca Swiss sliding adapter plate to allow proper balance.

Super smooth

Just received it and haven't taken it out on a trip yet but after putting both my binos and my 85mm spotter on this head I can already tell it will be a gamechanger and major upgrade from my previous ball head.

First Video Head

My previous tripod had a ball mount, and this video head makes glassing so much easier. It’s solid and buttery smooth. I especially like the safety lock that prevents expensive equipment from accidentally falling out. The knob that locks the release plate can be A little difficult to disengage because it’s so close to the handle, but that’s just constructive feedback if S&S talks with Sirus.

Some of the righting knobs are hard to use because their location. Very smooth movement and I like adaptability to other devices.

High quality

Just upgraded from a vortex high country tripod to the Slik 634, and wanted a quality head to put on it. There are so many options out there, I really didn’t know what to go with, or how to get the most for my money. After talking with the guys at S&S, they were confident that this would be the perfect head. They shipped it within a couple hours or ordering, and I had it within a few days. As for the quality of the head, I couldn’t be happier with it. Super smooth and balanced. I’m also able to use my field optics research adapter for my binos, and rotate the handle however I want for different scenarios. I highly recommend this head to anyone who is unsure what they really need. I also highly recommend purchasing as much as possible through these guys, because they know what they’re talking about, and the customer service was the best I’ve encountered yet.
