Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, has redeveloped its Ace L fluid head to make it compatible with all types of sliders. The Ace L 75mm tripod head can now be conveniently converted to a flat base, through the removal of a bottom screw, and mounted on a range of sliders.
The Ace L has a payload range of up to six kilograms and can be used with three different carbon fibre tripods the floor spreader, mid-level spreader or telescopic tripod system.
The slider functionality was incorporated into the Ace L fluid head based on customer feedback.
“The Ace L is a popular product and is particularly well suited to use with DSLR cameras. By adding the slider capability, our customers are now receiving a more efficient product with added versatility and functionality,” said Barbara Jaumann, product manager, Sachtler.
By now being compatible with sliders, the Ace L allows camera operators to easily and accurately pan during filming without having to switch between fluid heads for different settings.
The premium quality Ace L features the seven-step counter balance, patented SAdrag, and illuminated level indicator, and ensures precise and smooth camera operation.
All Ace L headers from 2014 onwards will feature this slider compatibility.
