The ground spreader enhances the stability of the tripod with heavy loads while providing protection for delicate floor surfaces. The tripod system packs into the padded bag for easy transportation.

Sixteen steps of counterbalance and seven steps of pan and tilt drag, along with locks for each axis, let you easily customize the response of the Video 18 S2 to fit your application, be it studio or field production.
The top of the Video 18 S2 head is dominated by a sliding balance platform which accepts Sachtler’s convenient Touch & Go quick release camera plate. Once the plate is secured, the entire platform adjusts to balance your camera setup. At the front of the platform, parking spaces for 1/4″-20, 3/8″-16, and registration pin screws are available for when they are not being used. Both sides of the head feature rosette mounts for pan handles. A right-side pan handle is included with the Video 18 S2. The base of the head terminates in a 100mm bowl mount for coupling with industry standard tripods, jibs, sliders, or other grip equipment that feature 100mm bowls.
The CF 100 ENG 2CF two stage tripod, provides maximum stability and carrying capacity. Constructed and drawn out of one-piece carbon fiber material, it is twist resistant and lighter than dural aluminum. It features a 100mm / 4″ bowl, tube diameter of 22mm (0.87″) and is fitted with the Sachtler quick clamping system, so you can securely – and visibly – lock the tripod.
The CF 100 ENG 2CF’s double extension provides greater stability, allowing an extended height range with a payload of 88 lb., and with a weight of only 5.3-lb it’s extremely lightweight, solid and stable.
A On-Ground Spreader is chosen when shooting is performed on a level surface, such as studio, city streets, offices, sport fields and stadiums. It allows for rapid set-up and pull down by keeping tripod legs at an equal or preset distance relative to each other. Attaches directly to the feet at the bottom of a tripod and its arms are telescopic to allow extension of a tripod leg without detaching the spreader. Fits all 100mm bowl tripods (except DA-100 Short tripod)
The Sachtler ENG 2 Padded Bag is a soft, water-resistant Cordura nylon tripod bag designed to carry various Sachtler tripods with fluid heads up to 35″ long. The case can be carried by the interlocking handles or the attached, adjustable shoulder strap.
