Due to its payload range of 0 to 6 kilograms Ace L is very versatile: Be it a shooting with a lightweight video enabled DSLR camera, a heavier rig with accessories or a HDV camcorder. A counterbalance of 7 steps allows rapid balancing of the camera set-up whereas the patented SA drag™ provides fine adjustment for precise panning and tilting.

The new Sachtler Ace fluid head has a tilt range of +90° to -75°. For Ace, a glass fiber reinforced composite material was chosen, which makes the new 75mm fluid head especially light and offers a comfortable and non-slip surface feel. An illuminated bubble makes work with Sachtler Ace L even more convenient.
