With its payload range of 0 to 4 kilograms (0 to 8.8 lbs), Ace is the ideal camera support for smaller HDV camcorders and DSLR cameras. The 5-step counterbalance (+0) makes fast counterbalancing of the camera set-up easy. With 3 vertical and 3 horizontal grades of drag (+0), the new patented SA dragTM enables 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.
Ace is provided with the Ace plate. It comes with a 1/4” screw and pin. Spare camera screws (1/4” and 3/8”) are stored in the balance plate.
