Making demanding web videos around the world with Sachtlers Ace M Posted: 19/04/2013
Making demanding web videos around the world with Sachtlers Ace M

"Nothing is as powerful as an idea whose time has come," thought young filmmakers Paul Jax and Niclas Lffler in the spirit of Victor Hugo and so they started their own film production company We Make Them Wonder in 2012. Their specialty: web videos that stand out from the crowd demanding and creative. With these ideas, they are very successful, and their commissioned work has already taken them to 18 countries. The filmmakers were looking for a handy, lightweight tripod system suited to the budget of the young start-up company; they needed a system with a quick set-up, durability, versatility, intuitive operation, and designed for work with video-enabled DSLR cameras. They chose the Ace M tripod system with mid-level spreader by Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.

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.
