|New Ace fluid heads
Two Models – Five tripod systems
The Ace product line is ideally suited for small HDV camcorders and video-enabled DSLR cameras. With two different payload ranges, a 5- or 7-step counterbalance and the new patented SA-drag™, the new Ace tripod systems enable a genuine Sachtler broadcast feel.
Due to their lightweight and compact design they are the perfect companions for work on the go whether you are working on low-budget documentaries, electronic news-gathering (ENG), weddings, events and training videos or a secondary unit.
The new patented SA-drag™ system has three horizontal and three vertical steps. Ace uses three capsuled damping modules allowing you to choose a drag setting that suits any shooting situation - from a very tight control with lots of resistance to a very loose control with virtually no resistance at all. This technique gives, for the first time in this price segment, the constant and repeatable drag that professionals need and have always relied on with Sachtlers’ broadcast and cine heads – true Sachtler quality!
Sachtler Ace M
The beginner’s systems Ace M MS and Ace M GS are perfectly adapted for operation with a payload from 0-4 kilograms. Besides a first class price/performance ratio, the tripod systems made of aluminum feature a 5-step counterbalance, which ensures easy balancing and optimum positioning of the camera. For shooting on uneven ground, the Ace M and MS are equipped with a mid-level spreader. Due to its ground-level spreader the Ace M GS is perfectly suitable for operation on level ground.
Sachtler Ace L
For camera-set-ups up to 6 kilograms, Sachtler developed the Ace L MS CF, Ace L GS CF and Ace L TT 75/2 CF tripod systems. They offer a 7-step counterbalance and – thanks to their carbon fiber tripods which are extremely lightweight and provide high torsional stiffness – are universally applicable in their class. They are also the lightest among the Sachtler tripod systems. For the ultimate convenience, these systems are equipped with an illuminated bubble level. Weighing just 3.9 kilograms the Sachtler Ace L MS CF is the lightest of these systems. The Ace L TT 75/2 CF system comes with a 3-section telescopic extension and offers the largest height range of the Sachtler Ace tripod systems. On even ground the Ace L TT 75/2 CF provides optimum results.
