The Sachtler ACE XL Fluid Head Tripod System with Flowtech 75 Carbon Fiber Legs & Mid-Level Spreader (75mm Bowl) includes the ACE XL fluid head, the Flowtech 75 carbon fibre tripod, and a mid-level spreader.
This tripod kit supports payloads ranging from 2 to 8kgs and is suited for DSLRs, mirrorless, and small- to medium-sized camcorders. Use the lightweight, carbon fibre Flowtech tripod on its own for greater flexibility on uneven surfaces, or with the mid-level spreader for greater stability.
The Sachtler Ace XL Fluid Head (75mm Bowl) is designed for digital cine-style cameras, supporting rigs weighing up to 17.6 pounds. This fluid head is suitable for larger DSLR and mirrorless MFT cameras, as well as pro-style cameras such as the Blackmagic URSA Mini/Pro, Canon C200/C300 Mk II, Sony FS series, and the Panasonic EVA1. The Ace XL fluid head features eight steps of counterbalance and three steps of pan and tilt drag adjustment, plus a zero drag option for pan and tilt.
The Sachtler Flowtech 75 MS Carbon Fiber Tripod with Mid-Level Spreader and Rubber Feet eschews the common single or double carbon fibre tube design and instead has redesigned the shape of the legs for improved torsional strength.
The legs work weigh just under 7 pounds yet they can support a payload of up to 20kgs, and extend from a minimum height of 61cm to a maximum height of 155cm when using the included removable mid-level spreader. Each leg features a single clamping lever that locks and unlocks the sections.
