Sachtler rolls out Cine 7+7 HD fluid head

Sachtler has introduced the Cine 7+7 HD fluid head, a 100mm system offering a host of cine-style features including a front pan bar.

With a payload range of 4.4lbs-48.5lbs, the new head supports a variety of packages from HDV camcorders to full-sized cameras loaded with accessories.

Weighing 7.3lbs, the location-ready Cine 7+7 HD fluid head is equipped with a sideload clamp for the camera plate. The 6in (150mm) wide displacement area of the camera plate offers the advantage of easy, lateral loading of the head via the premounted camera setup. The Cine 7+7 HD brake lever and swivel arm employ a dual-compound molding procedure to ensure a sure grip.
