This product is temporarily unavailable

Sometimes a project doesn’t call for high-end specialities, it just needs equipment that does everything well. The definition of a multifunctional all-rounder, the Sachtler FSB 6 Fluid Head is designed to work with handheld camcorders. Sachtler’s side load mechanism lets you set up by mounting quickly from the side of the tripod. Long displacement makes the task of positioning the camera as easy it is quick to load. Once attached, frictionless leak-proof fluid damping with five levels of drag lets you shoot without jerks or vibrations, across both horizontal and vertical planes.

Weighing only 2.6 kg and able to support a payload of up to 8 kg, the Sachtler FSB 6 Fluid Head is both lightweight and durable. Designed to a be a long-serving and high-performing part of your kit, the 75 mm head fitting has an integrated flat base and a large sliding range of 120 mm.
