Sometimes a project doesn’t call for high-end specialities, it just needs equipment that does everything well. The definition of a multifunctional all-rounder, the Sachtler FSB 6 Fluid Head is designed to work with handheld camcorders. Sachtler’s side load mechanism lets you set up by mounting quickly from the side of the tripod. Long sliding range makes the task of positioning the camera as easy it is quick to load. Once attached, frictionless leak-proof fluid damping with five levels of drag lets you shoot without jerks or vibrations, across both horizontal and vertical planes.
Weighing only 2.6 kg and able to support a payload of up to 8 kg, the Sachtler FSB 6 Fluid Head is both lightweight and durable. Designed to a be a long-serving and high-performing part of your kit, the 75 mm head fitting has an integrated flat base and a large sliding range of 120 mm.
Being able to quickly set up and level a shot in any environment and terrain gives you more time to be creative and get the perfect shot. The Sachtler flowtech® 75 MS carbon fibre tripod’s mid-level spreader and rubber feet mean that each leg extends or retracts independently of the other two. Each leg has an individual clamping mechanism so that you can loosen and lock them from a single location near the 75 mm bowl. This deployment speed is paired with an easy to use ergonomic, lightweight design that can follow into the most intense environments.
The carbon fibre design of the Sachtler flowtech® 75 MS only weighs 6.4 lb, but is capable of supporting up to 44 lb. The design also provides a high level of torsional stability so that you can be sure your pans will always stay completely level with no twisting. When you’ve got the perfect shot, the legs can be folded up while remaining attached, where a magnetic lock holds them in place until you release them again.
