Sachtler Video 18 w Carbon Legs

The Sachtler System 18 S1 ENG 2 MCF brings together the update of a classic fluid head with a quick-action, double extension tripod to provide a professional level of support for today’s news-gathering videographer. Whether you’re shooting with a large ENG camcorder or the latest video DSLR, this system–which also includes mid-level spreaders, rubber feet, and a padded carry bag–will give you the quick, easy balance and flexible control you need.

Video 18 S1 Fluid Head
This relaunch of the legendary Video 18 head incorporates a wider payload range and a faster, simpler balancing system. The increased range means that even lightweight cameras–such as video DSLRs–can be used effectively, aided by a 16-step counterbalance system that allows for fine degrees of tuning. Like its predecessor, the Video 18 S1 can also easily handle heavier ENG camcorders, with a Boost Button included for sudden shifts in payload range. Other features include 7 levels of drag, a self-illuminating bubble level, a Touch and Go plate for speedy mounting and removal, and Sachtler’s already proven Speedbalance technology.
