The Sachtler Tripod

Sachtler Video 20

Sachtler Video 18

Sachtler DV 8

The Video 20 fluid head with a 100mm bowl fitting takes payload of up to 20kg, handling all our cameras in a 15mm light weight set up. The combined head and legs weight of around 13kg makes the system relatively portable and ideal for cameramen constantly on the move. The head is supplied with a Sachtler Speed Lock CF HD 3-stage tripod, which comes with a mid-level spreader. These tough but extremely lightweight carbon fibre legs feature Sachtler’s patented Speed Lock clamping system, allowing operators to easily adjust height in seconds.

The Video 18P fluid head is similar to the Video 20 but is of slightly lighter weight construction, taking a payload of up to 18kg. Also supplied with a Sachtler Speed Lock CF HD 3-stage tripod with mid-level spreader.

Camera Base Plate Heights for Video 20 and 18:
Maximum = 173cm
Minimum = 73cm

The smaller DV 8 fluid head has all the functionality of the larger heads but is more compact and lighter weight with a 75mm bowl fitting. Supplied with a Sachtler Speed Lock CF two-stage carbon fibre tripod, this provides the ideal support for the Canon 5D Mk III and Sony PMW-300.
