The Sachtler Ace M Fluid Head with 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod & Mid-Level Spreader was designed with the budget-minded shooter in mind (documentaries / ENG, industrials, wedding/event, training videos and webinars). It features the quality and reliability that makes Sachtler one of the most sought after brands in camera support equipment, while reaching out to a whole new market with it's low price.
The Ace fluid head features a 5-step counterbalance (+0) makes fast counterbalancing of the camera set-up easy. With 3 vertical and 3 horizontal grades of drag (+0), the new patented SA drag™ enables fine adjustment for precise panning and tilting. As with all Sachtler fluid heads, damping can also be completely deactivated. The new Sachtler Ace fluid head has a tilt range of +90° to -75°. 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.
Ace is delivered with the Ace plate. It comes with a 1/4” screw and pin. Spare camera screws (1/4” and 3/8”) are stored in the balance plate. The ACE fluid head will accept Manfrotto 501 sliding base trays, both the standard and the long plate, which Filmtools always has in stock so finding replacements is easy. Delivery also includes a Sachtler ACE tripod bag.
