Lightweight and extremely stable, Sachtler tripods have been the partner of choice for camera operators for 50 years. Made out of dural aluminium (DA)
and carbon fiber (CF), Sachtler tripods are extremely resilient and break-proof – even under extreme conditions. Compared to the more economical aluminium, carbon fiber has a
convincing benefit – it is much lighter. That’s why carbon fiber tripods are ideal for mobile operation, particularly as they are much more comfortable to handle in extreme temperatures.
It is the payload that decides which fitting to use with each fluid head. Lightweight HDV Camcorders come with a system that includes 75 mm bowls, while digital camcorders require a 100 mm bowl, and
film and television cameras stand fast on tripods with 150 mm fittings or flat bases.
