Sachtler FSB 8 T Fluid Head with Touch & Go Camera Plate and Pan Bar

Projects that involve the use of camcorders, modern film cameras and DSLR set-ups, often call for lots of switching between tripod and shoulder. The Sachtler FSB 8 T Fluid Head makes switching as simple as a single click with its Touch & Go technology. This quick release plate has a sliding range of 60 mm, while a 10-step counterbalance means you are always perfectly balanced.

With a weight of 2.7 kg and supporting a payload of up to 10 kg, the Sachtler FSB 8 T Fluid Head is a durable and reliable addition to your gear. Frictionless leak-proof damping with five levels of drag gives you smooth, jerk and vibration free movement at all times. If you need fast pans, you can completely disengage drag.
