Ace M is exclusively available as a package with a 75 mm tripod and a useful transport bag. Anybody who works on uneven ground and “on location” would have an advantage with the two-stage extension tripods featuring a mid-level spreader.

Using a smaller camera doesn’t mean you have to compromise on performance. Whether you are shooting documentaries, weddings or corporate videos with your HDSLR or smaller camera, the Sachtler Ace M Fluid Head gives you broadcast-quality performance. The patented SA-drag™ system and a payload of up to 4 kg means that you get the best pan and tilt performance. The weight compensation comes from proven step switching, making this fluid head perfect for both beginners and professionals looking for a quick and easy bit of kit for smaller projects.

The Ace M Fluid Head weighs just 1.6 kg, with its glass fibre-reinforced composite material that has a non-slip surface feel. This means you can work quickly and intuitively with the confidence that your pans and tilts will always be smooth. The five-step counterbalance makes it simple to balance quickly on almost any surface. High-performance and reliability meet simplicity with the Sachtler Ace M Fluid Head.
