Whether you are working in the studio or on location, you need a fluid head that lets you work fast and effectively. The Sachtler Cine 30 HD is a reliable and flexible solution for daily film and HD use. Thanks to the Snap & Go side-loading mechanism, heavy camera packages can be mounted quickly without compromising safety and still allowing the plate to slide to adjust balance. This makes it quick and easy to prepare a shot, no matter how many accessories are weighing down your camera.

The head features two payload ranges, from 3 – 30 kg and 8 – 35 kg for optimal versatility. Once you are balanced, the 18-step counterbalance ensures you can be sure your camera is always securely fastened and supported at any angle. Frictionless leak proof fluid damping with seven levels of drag for smooth panning also means that your tilts and pans are always seamless.
