Able to handle DSLR setups weighing four pounds up to ENG and digital cinema cameras weighing 48.5 pounds, the Sachtler Video 18 S2 Fluid Head can fit into a wide range of video productions. Sixteen steps of counterbalance and seven steps of pan and tilt drag, along with locks for each axis, let you easily customize the response of the Video 18 S2 to fit your application, be it studio or field production.
The top of the Video 18 S2 head is dominated by a sliding balance platform that accepts Sachtler’s convenient Touch & Go quick release camera plate. Once the plate is secured, the entire platform adjusts to balance your camera setup. At the front of the platform, parking spaces for 1/4″-20, 3/8″-16, and registration pin screws are available for when they are not being used. Both sides of the head feature rosette mounts for pan handles. A right-side pan handle is included with the Video 18 S2. The base of the head terminates in a 100mm bowl mount for coupling with industry-standard tripods, jibs, sliders, or other grip equipment that feature 100mm bowls.
Sachtler Speed-Lock CF HD Carbon Fiber 2-Stage Heavy-Duty Tripod Legs (100mm Bowl) – Supports 209 lbs
The Speed Lock CF HD heavy-duty tripod with a weight of 9.2 lb, has all the same features as the Speed Lock CF, plus it adds an amazing high load capacity of 211 lb for additional strength.
It takes just three quick movements and the Speed Lock CF HD is ready for action – and users don’t even have to bend over! The patented clamping system lets you adjust the tripod smoothly and safely, even with a camera mounted. The Speed Lock CF’s carbon fiber construction ensures minimal load-free weight, and increases stability and twist resistance. On top of that, the clamping connection forms a third tube to further increase stability. The ergonomically shaped, high-tech clamps have a rounded design, which ensures that cables slide off without catching. In addition, you can tell at a glance whether the legs are clamped into position. And of course, it’s compatible with all existing 100-mm accessories.
