Sachtler introduces Ace L fluid head
Sachtler has expanded its Ace product line with the introduction of the 75mm Ace L fluid head. Ace L is available with a choice of two different carbon-fiber tripods.
In comparison to the Ace M, the Ace L has an extended payload range of 0lbs to 13lbs. This makes it versatile, whether filming with a lightweight video-enabled DSLR camera, a heavier rig with camera accessories or an HDV camcorder.
Seven steps make counterbalancing comfortable and quick. The Ace L also features the patented Synchronized Actuated Drag damping with three vertical and three horizontal grades of drag (+0), which is designed to provide an authentic broadcast feel and familiar dependability for precise panning and tilting.
