When you need quick set up and precise balancing while using a smaller camera, the Sachtler FSB 4 Fluid Head ensures you don’t have to compromise on performance. Speedbalance technology finely balances any camera payload from 0kg up to 4kg (8.8lbs), while the snap and go side loading mechanism with a sliding range of 120mm (4.7in) makes mounting and positioning accessorised handheld cameras and DSLRs simple.

Create precision pans with smooth starts and soft stops. Patented Sachtler drag always gives you subtle and smooth movement. Three horizontal and vertical drag settings help you to tune the drag to your payload.

The System includes an ultra-lightweight 2-stage carbon fibre 75mm tripod that keeps the weight to a minimum without sacrificing strength. With three 3/8” accessory mounting points on the tripod bowl you can add extra accessories like a Magic Arm and attach the included carry handle to help move the system around one-handed. The detachable mid-level spreader provides stability even on rough ground, and a padded bag is included for transportation.

Engineered to the highest standards with tough materials and precision components, FSB is built for endurance. With no variation in performance in the widest range of temperatures and environments, FSB is the first choice for busy operators.
