Sachtler Video 18 S1
DetailsThe Sachtler Video 18 S1 Fluid Head has incorporated a wider payload range and a faster, simpler balancing system than it's predecessor. The increased range means that even lightweight cameras, like HDSLRs, can be used on this head. The 16-step counterbalance system allows for fine degrees of tuning with many sized payloads. Like its predecessor, the Video 18 S1 can also easily handle heavier ENG camcorders, with a Boost Button now included for sudden shifts in payload range (i.e. when switching out a shoulder-mount camera for a compact HD camcorder or HDSLR).
Along with the enhanced counterbalance come the features that made the original Video 18 so popular. Those include 7 levels of drag, an illuminated bubble level, a Touch and Go plate for speedy mounting and removal, and Sachtler's already proven Speedbalance technology. http://www.sachtler.com/products/fluid-heads/video-18-s1-2/
