Have we got camera supports for you, says Sachtler1 February 2012
Vitec Group brand Sachtler will present its new Ace fluid head and tripod system, described as the perfect camera support for the growing market of videographers and DSLR filmmakers.
Designed for a variety of pro applications, Ace offers a payload of up to 4 kilograms, making it ideal for smaller HDV camcorders and video-enabled DSLR cameras. Features include a special composite material that makes the system very lightweight, and a 5-step counterbalance that makes fast counterbalancing of the camera set-up very simple. Also included is the new patended drag, SA drag (Synchronised Actuated Drag).
Sachtler will also show its Cine camera support as well as the Video 18 S1 and the Video 20 S1, the latest models of the Video 18 and Video 20 ENG/EFP heads.

Both heads provide the Sachtler Speedbalance Technology and a Touch & Go plate.
The artemis modular camera stabiliser system will also be on show. artemis Cine HD Pro features modular construction, dual video processing, HiCap wiring and HotSwap technology, which provides an uninterrupted power supply when changing batteries.
