Professional performance means maximum stability and jerk-free camera movement, even when supporting heavier digital cine-style cameras and rigs. The Sachtler Ace XL Fluid Head supports up to 8 kg and the eight counterbalance steps mean that camera balancing is always quick and simple. The lightweight design means that it won’t weigh you down, while the high degree of stability means that it won’t let you down either.
A range of features make the Sachtler Ace XL Fluid Head a versatile part of your kit. The 75 mm ball-based head has an integrated flat bottom designed to accommodate a wide range of configured rigs. The integrated flat head base means that the Ace XL can be modified for shooting with a slider. Once you have set up, the three steps of pan and drag plus zero allow for effortless smooth movement. Durable, lightweight and designed with the user in mind, this fluid head will remain a part of your kit for years.
Being able to quickly set up and level a shot in any environment and terrain gives you more time to be creative and get the perfect shot. The Sachtler flowtech® 75 MS carbon fibre tripod’s mid-level spreader and rubber feet mean that each leg extends or retracts independently of the other two. Each leg has an individual clamping mechanism so that you can loosen and lock them from a single location near the 75 mm bowl. This deployment speed is paired with an easy to use ergonomic, lightweight design that can follow into the most intense environments.
The carbon fibre design of the Sachtler flowtech75 aktiv MS only weighs 3.5 kg, but is capable of supporting up to 20 kg. The design also provides a high level of torsional stability so that you can be sure your pans will always stay completely level with no twisting. When you’ve got the perfect shot, the legs can be folded up while remaining attached, where a magnetic lock holds them in place until you release them again.
