Now independent videographers can enjoy all the performance benefits of a broadcast quality offering – at a price that looks as good as the resulting image

• Designed for low weight professional cameras

• Best-in-class drag performance

• Ergonomic and intuitive – designed for ease of use

• Best price to performance ratio in its class

Make it a winning shot with the Sachtler Ace.

Ace is ideally suited for small HDV camcorders and video-enabled DSLR cameras. With a payload range of 0 to 4 kilograms (0 to 8.8 lbs), a 5-step counterbalance and the new patented SA dragTM, the new Ace tripod system enables a genuine Sachtler broadcast feel.

Due to its lightweight and compact design it is the perfect companion for work on the go whether you are working on low-budget documentaries, electronic news-gathering (ENG), weddings events and training videos or a secondary unit.

The new patented SA-dragTM system has three horizontal and three vertical steps. Ace uses three capsuled damping modules allowing you to choose a drag setting that suits any shooting situation – from a very tight control with lots of resistance to a very loose control with virtually no resistance at all. This technique gives, for the first time in this price segment, a constant and repeatable drag that professionals need and have always relied on, with Sachtlers’ broadcast and cine heads.

The 5-step counterbalance capability ensures easy balancing and optimum positioning of the camera – a true Sachtler!
