Sachtler presented a completely new fluid head at IBC 2011. The Ace tripod system is the perfect camera support for the growing market of videographers and DSLR filmmakers. With a payload of up to 4 kilograms (8.8 pounds), Ace is ideal for smaller HDV camcorders and video-enabled DSLR cameras. Ace is also compact and durable and thanks to a special composite material, it is extremely lightweight. As with all Sachtler products, it is ergonomically designed and offers an intuitive feel. For Ace, the completely new patented drag, SA drag guarantees the familiar accuracy and repeatability at an astonishing price/performance ratio. Sachtler is finally offering a genuine broadcast feel for every videographer.
For the first time, the Ace tripod system offers those who shoot low-budget documentaries / ENG, industrials, wedding / event, training videos and webinars Sachtler’s quality and dependability for professional work. With 3 vertical and 3 horizontal grades of drag (+0), the new patented SA drag enables fine adjustment for precise panning and tilting. Now Ace users can enjoy the famous Sachtler feel offered by the larger Sachtler heads‚ a first in this market segment.
With its 5-step counterbalance that makes fast counterbalancing of the camera set-up very simple, Ace outperforms fluid heads by other manufacturers. Thanks to its payload range of 0 to 4 kilograms (0 to 8.8 lbs), professional work is possible with video-enabled DSLR cameras as well as smaller HDV camcorders. The new fluid head has a tilt range of plus 90 degrees to -75 degrees.
For Ace, a glass fiber reinforced composite material was chosen which makes the new 75mm fluid head especially light and offers a comfortable and non-slip surface feel. The head enables camera operators to work extremely intuitively and professionally.Due to the light weight and the compact design of the new tripod system, it is the perfect companion for work on the go.
