Sachtler expands Ace Product Line with Ace L

 

Sachtler, part of Vitec Videcom, a Vitec Group company, will expand the Ace product line with the new 75mm Ace L fluid head at IBC2012.  The new fluid head will be available with a choice of three different carbon-fiber tripods. In comparison to the popular Ace M, Ace L has an extended payload range of zero to six kilograms (0 to 13 lbs). This makes the new fluid head extremely versatile: whether filming with a lightweight video-enabled DSLR camera, a heavier rig with camera accessories, or a HDV camcorder. Seven steps make counterbalancing comfortable and quick. The Ace L also features the patented SA dragTM (Synchronised Actuated Drag) damping with three vertical and three horizontal grades of drag (+0), which provides an authentic broadcast feel and familiar dependability for precise panning and tilting. Popular Sachtler features, such as the illuminated bubble level, round out the new Ace L fluid head.  

"Due to the great demand for the Ace M, we decided to develop the Ace product line further. The new Ace L offers a choice of carbon-fiber tripods, an extended payload range for work with multiple camera accessories, plus typical Sachtler extras such as the illuminated bubble level all at the same price/performance ratio which quickly made the Ace M the most popular tripod system in its class," says Barbara Jaumann, Product Manager at Sachtler.  

Carbon-fiber tripods for every demand

Sachtler now offers the lightest weight tripod systems for the professional market. The three new Ace L carbon-fiber systems offer a two kilogram weight saving over other systems on the market. The version with the ground spreader and the TT 75/2 CF telescopic tripod, together with the fluid head, weighs in at just 4.1 kilograms (9 lbs). With the mid-level spreader, the Ace L system weighs a mere 3.9 kilograms (8.6 lbs). In addition to their low weight, carbon fiber tripods win over users with their low torsion.

The TT 75/2 CF telescopic tripod is exclusively available in the system with Ace L. The three segments per tripod leg can be quickly adjusted in length and secured with a fast action clamp. Three different positions are available for the leg angle adjustment. Furthermore, the tripod equipped with the Ace L head provides an extremely broad height range of 43 to 186 centimeters (17 to 73 in). The Ace 75/2 CF version with ground spreader provides a height range of 57 to 173 centimeters (22 to 68 in) with maximum stability. In addition, Ace L is available with the Ace 75/2 CF in the mid-level spreader model and with Sachtler rubber feet ideal for filming on uneven ground.  

Perfect counterbalance from zero to six kilograms

The 7-step counterbalance and the long 104mm (4.1 in) sliding range of the Ace camera plate allows for quick counterbalancing of a camera set-up weighing anywhere from zero to six kilograms. With these features, the Ace fluid heads are far ahead of fluid heads from other manufacturers. In addition, Ace L features clearly marked counterbalance settings to aid repeatable moves. The new fluid head has a tilt range of +90° to -75°. In addition, every Ace L tripod system comes with a bag, which features practical grips as well as a carrying strap. A tripod carrying strap for the Ace L tripod systems with the Ace 75/2 CF is optionally available.  

Authentic broadcast feel now more versatile

The Ace tripod systems offer perfect camera support for the growing market of video and DSLR filmmakers whose work includes everything from low-budget documentaries and EB to industry films, wedding, event, and training videos as well as webinars. Lightweight, compact, durable, dependable, and like all Sachtler products, they are ergonomically designed and feature intuitive operation. Depending on the requirements, camera operators can choose between the Ace M starter model with mid-level or ground spreader or the new Ace L in one of three configurations all five at an optimal price/performance ratio. 

Availability of the three new Ace L tripod systems to be confirmed.
