The Sachtler ACE XL Tripod System with FT 75 Legs includes the ACE XL fluid head, the Flowtech 75 carbon fiber tripod, and a mid-level spreader. This tripod kit supports payloads ranging from 4.4 to 17.6 pounds, and is suited for DSLRs, mirrorless, and small- to medium-sized camcorders. Use the lightweight, carbon fiber Flowtech tripod on its own for greater flexibility on uneven surfaces, or with the mid-level spreader for greater stability.
The Sachtler Ace XL Fluid Head (75mm Bowl) is designed for digital cine-style cameras, supporting rigs weighing up to 17.6 pounds. This fluid head is suitable for larger DSLR and mirrorless MFT cameras, as well as pro-style cameras such as the Blackmagic URSA Mini/Pro, Canon C200/C300 Mk II, Sony FS series, and the Panasonic EVA1. The Ace XL fluid head features eight steps of counterbalance and three steps of pan and tilt drag adjustment, plus a zero drag option for pan and tilt.
Mount your camera using the Ace XL Fluid Head’s slide-in balancing plate with 1/4-20″ screw and locating pin. With a sliding range of 4.1″ this head can adapt to variously configured rigs. Additional features include a detachable, right-side pan bar and an illuminated bubble level. With an integrated flat head base, the Ace XL can be configured for shooting with a slider.
The Sachtler Flowtech 75 MS Carbon Fiber Tripod with Mid-Level Spreader and Rubber Feeteschews the common single or double carbon fiber tube design and instead has redesigned the shape of the legs for improved torsional strength. The legs work weigh just under 7 pounds yet they can support a payload of up to 44 pounds, and extend from a minimum height of 24″ to a maximum height of 61″ when using the included removable mid-level spreader. Each leg features a single clamping lever that locks and unlocks the sections.
Each leg extends or retracts independently from the other two, and when it is detached from the spreader each leg can pivot without affecting the other legs. This is especially useful when working on rough or uneven terrain. You can remove the spreader completely and lock each leg in one of three positions, so you can work without a spreader if you wish. This enables you to spread the legs extremely wide for low shots, while the tripod legs maintain their torsional stability. The dual spikes at the end of each leg provide extra grip when working on softer ground, and you can snap rubber feet onto the dual spikes for better grip when working on hard or delicate surfaces.
With dimensions of 36.6 x 7.9 x 9.1″, this Padded Bag from Sachtler is designed specifically for carrying a flowtech 75 or TT tripod equipped with an FSB fluid head. It is made with a high-density 900D fabric, which is both flame retardant and water-resistant to help ensure that your equipment stays safe. Additionally, layers of both open-cell and closed-cell foam are used in the construction to protect your gear against small bumps and shocks.
The bag opens via a full-length zipper found at the top, which allows for easy access while shooting. For transport, two straps on each side can be connected to an integrated handgrip for easy carrying. There are also small handles on each side of the bag where the zipper ends, and right next to them are D-rings that can be used to connect an optional shoulder strap. Finally, a clear plastic window on the outside allows you to insert a tag with your name or phone number for easy identification when travelling.
