Sachtler introduces new DV fluid head
Sachtler has introduced the DV 10 SB fluid head, the smallest 100mm bowl-mount head in its DV line.
The DV 10 SB is equipped with a 12-step counterbalance as well as five horizontal and five vertical levels of drag plus “0.” The head’s payload range is from two to 26lbs and tilt range is +90 degrees to -75 degrees.
This new head offers the company’s SpeedBalance feature that reduces setup time. The technology also expands the payload range, including a reduction in minimum payload. This makes the head ideal for lightweight camcorders in the DVCAM, HDV and DV classes.
The DV 10 SB also features Sachtler’s Touch & Go Plate DV for quick camera mounting and a wider sliding range, a self-illuminating Touch Bubble, and the ability to operate in diverse climates, from -40 to +140 degrees. The head weights 5.7lbs.
