Its predecessor has been helping people get amazing results all over the world for decades. Now, the winning formula is being improved by the Sachtler Video 18 S2 Fluid Head, which can support a payload of up to 22 kg and is a perfect fit for a wide range of video projects. This operational versatility is added to by 16-steps of counterbalance and seven steps of pan and tilt drag, which allows you to work intuitively safe in the knowledge that movement will always be smooth and seamless.

The Touch & Go quick release camera plate and sliding balance platform mean that once you’ve clicked your camera into place, the entire platform adjusts to balance your setup. The Sachtler Speedbalance technology provides lightning fast weight compensation, making the Video 18 S2 a time-saver as well as a reliable part of your gear.
