The aktiv10 flowtech 100 MS Tripod System from Sachtler pairs the activ10 fluid head with the lightweight, carbon fiber flowtech 100 MS tripod with mid-level spreader. This kit offers lightning fast SpeedSwap technology, a sideload camera plate, 15 levels (+0) of counterbalance, 7 levels (+0) of pan and tilt drag, and stable support for camera rigs weighing up to 26.5 lb. A padded carrying bag rounds out this tripod kit.
Sachtler aktiv10 Sideload Fluid Head with SpeedLevel & 7-Step Drag (100mm Ball)
The aktiv10 Sideload Fluid Head uses Sachtler's truly innovative SpeedLevel technology to provide almost instant mounting and leveling of your camera rig on your tripod. The clamp and stud SpeedLevel system saves precious time leveling your camera rig by eliminating the need to screw on a tie-down knob. Designed for documentary, news, and corporate production, the aktiv10 supports camera rigs weighing up to 26.5 pounds. This 100mm ball fluid head also features 15 steps of counterbalance, seven steps of pan and tilt drag, and zero settings for both balance and drag.
The proprietary Sachtler SpeedLevel technology replaces the traditional head screw and tie-down design with a strong clamp built into the head bowl and a stud component that clamps onto your tripod bowl or other mounting platform, such as a slider. Simply grasp the large lever on the head and pull it up to release the clamp, then press it down to lock your head in place. Partially lifting the lever allows you to quickly and easily level the head.
When used with a separately available flowtech tripod, the aktiv10 enables you to spread the legs flat for extremely low shots without a tie-down knob getting in the way. You can also mount your head directly onto a slider using a separately available aktiv system stud that screws onto support systems with a 3/8"-16 threaded stud.
The active 10's PrismBubble is a built-in prism level with two viewing windows that enable you to more easily level the head when the legs are at set at maximum height or at an awkward angle. The bubble level also has two levels of illumination—press once to light up the bubble level or hold longer to illuminate both the bubble level and the counterbalance and drag settings, a boon when working in darker environments.
Mount your camera using the included Sideload Plate S that has both a 1/4-20 camera screw and a locating pin to prevent twisting. With a sliding range of 4.7", this head balances quickly to accommodate variously configured rigs. The Sachtler aktiv10 head also features a detachable pan bar that can be mounted onto the rosettes on either the right or left side of the head.
Use the large integrated lever to quickly mount, level, and lock the head on your tripod or other base; lift up to release, lift partially to level, and press down to lock the head firmly in place
Centered around a metal stud, the SpeedSwap base clamps onto any 100mm bowl tripod or the separately available slider base; additional bases can be purchased separately to fit a second tripod, dolly, or slider
The illuminated PrismBubble is visible from any height or angle, saving you time when leveling at higher or lower positions
