About Sachtler

The Sachtler System 20 S1 SL HD MCF brings together the update of a classic fluid head with a solid, quick-action tripod to provide a professional level of support for today's news-gathering videographer. Whether you're shooting with a large ENG camcorder or the latest video DSLR, this system--which also includes mid-level spreader, rubber feet and a carry bag--will give you the quick, easy balance and flexible control you need.

Sachtler Features

  • This relaunch of the legendary Video 20 head incorporates a wider payload range and a faster, simpler balancing system. The increased range means that even lightweight cameras-such as video DSLRs-can be used effectively, aided by a 16-step counterbalance system that allows for fine degrees of tuning
  • The Speed Lock CF is among the fastest two-stage tripods in the world. This extremely sturdy and twist-resistant carbon fiber tripod ensures that you're already shooting while everyone else is still setting up. Simply release the three easy-to-reach clamps and you're ready for action
  • The patented clamping system lets you adjust the tripod smoothly and safely, even with a camera mounted, while the carbon fiber construction ensures minimal load-free weight, increasing stability and twist resistance
  • The included mid-level spreader ensures absolute stability regardless of the working surface, while a set of rubber feet will protect floors from scratching. Topping off the system is the ENG/EFP padded bag, which comfortably and quickly contains the whole kit for efficient transport

Best mid-weight tripod there is!


from NYC  -  Pro Photographer

Sachtler smoothness and durability, plus the s1 series can balance very light cameras unlike the old v20, so for a freelancer it's the best overall head. Fast, light, smooth and durable. Lighted bubble is critical. And the SL legs are killer! I fought the concept for years as gimmicky or overly complex but they aren't much heavier and truly do work quickly and provide the same stability as the traditional legs. Great setup for making smooth moves quickly and easily. You can setup and balance basically any cam up to roughly 40lb in minutes, then reset for a dslr in no time. Try that with an oconnor!
