Sachtler FSB 4 Fluid Head with Sideload Camera Plate and Pan Bar

When you need quick set up and precise balancing while using a smaller camera, the Sachtler FSB 4 Fluid Head doesn’t mean you have to compromise on performance. Speedbalance technology gives you rapid weight compensation for payloads of up to 4 kg, while the snap and go side loading mechanism means mounting handheld cameras and DSLRs can be done from the side of the tripod.

Being able to work quickly and efficiently also means being able to get the perfect shots easily. Once you have balanced your camera, patented Sachtler vibration damping always gives you subtle and smooth movement. Three horizontal and vertical grades of drag also help you work intuitively and quickly, while always being sure your gear isn’t letting you down. The 75 mm head fitting has a large sliding range of 120 mm, helping to give the flexibility to work in the way that gets you the best results.
