System Video 18 FT GS

Sachtler System Video 18 carbon fibre with Fluid Head, flowtech® Tripod, Ground Spreader & Bag

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.

When you don’t know what challenges a project will throw at you, having a tripod that is lightweight, durable and versatile can help you work smart and fast. No matter the environment, setting up the Sachtler flowtech® 100 GS is as simple as releasing the unique brakes. Setting up in a stable and safe way becomes a matter of seconds, with no need for time consuming fiddling. Once you are in position, the versatile hinge lock mechanism allows you to capture extremely high and low shots easily.

Finding the right shot is easier too, with the carbon fibre and ergonomic design meaning that the Sachtler flowtech® 100 GS will never weigh you down. Once you are set up and ready to go, the design gives high levels of torsional stiffness so that you can concentrate on getting the best shot. Designed to give a reliable high performance wherever you need it, flowtech® won’t let you down in the field.
