Sachtler DV 12 SB Fluid Head with Touch & Go Camera Plate and Pan Bar

If a project requires you to use a small ENG camera, you are going to need a fluid head that can carry a heavy load without compromising on smooth movement. The Sachtler DV 12 SB Fluid Head has a 12-step counterbalance system and a 70 mm sliding plate for perfect balance, while five horizontal and vertical grades of drag ensures smooth pans.

Supporting cameras weighing up to 15 kg, the Sachtler DV 12 SB Fluid Head’s mix of flexibility and simplicity make it a reliable companion in even the most demanding of environments. The Touch & Go release systems means that you can mount your camera quickly, accurately and securely. Moving and adjusting shots is as simple as flicking a switch, meaning that there is less time fumbling and more time being creative.
