"I really love to shoot from low angles, this head it really good, because you can pull it off the tripod and put it on the slider in two seconds"

Moritz Sieber Creative Director

"We like to work a lot during golden hour so we have a limited window to catch the best light, so we need to have gear that is fast, aktiv is perfect for this."
