Sachtler Video 18 S2 Fluid Head w/ Legs


Sachtler Video 18 S2 Fluid Head & Speed Lock CF Dual-Stage Tripod System


The Sachtler Video 18 S2 Fluid Head & Speed Lock CF Dual-Stage Tripod System provides you with a complete tripod system featuring a 100mm ball-leveling fluid head. It handles loads up to 44 lb while still operating smoothly at lower drag settings when using DSLRs and other lightweight cameras. A two-stage carbon fiber 100mm bowl tripod with a mid-level spreader and a padded carrying bag round out this combo. The Video 18 S2’s counterbalance knob lets you dial in 16 steps of weight compensation. A handy feature for multi-camera shoots, the boost button quickly adjusts the overall weight range when switching between heavier and lighter loads. The carbon fiber tripod legs have a mid-level spreader to increase stability and Speed Lock clamps for quick setup of the two-stage legs. The tripod and head together extend from 2.2 to 5.5′, and the combined weight of the components is just under 19 lb.
