Sachtler unveils ACT 2 spring arm
Sachtler has introduced the ACT 2 spring arm for camera stabilizing systems, including the artemis EFP, EFP Pro SDI HD, Cine and Cine HD.
Sachtler’s next-generation arm relies on new-technology springs, bearings and materials like high-rigidity reinforced aluminum. The result is a 3lb arm that is lighter to carry, yet offers superior torsional strength.
The ACT 2 is designed for versatile, speedy set-up. Three user-selectable, interchangeable stainless steel spring sets handle payloads from 24lbs to 57lbs. The intuitive pre-tensioning capability lets the operator adjust spring tension to accommodate various loads simply and quickly with a single 5/32in (4mm) Allen wrench.
The new arm also introduces a flip-over vest attachment that makes it easy to switch from right-handed to left-handed operation and vice versa, without disassembling the vest connection.
