Due to the broader payload range, the new generation of the classics is no longer limited to ENG and EFP uses and can now be used with a greater spectrum of cameras. Because the minimum payload starts at two kilograms, these heads canalso be used with DSLR cameras that have full HD video function. Thanks to the fairly high density of the tripod heads in relationship to the camera, the headsare able to provide greater precision in panning than small and lightweight heads.
The S1 fluid heads are the latest models of the two legendary Sachtler Video 18 and Video 20 ENG / EFP series. Now with 6 steps more, the Video 18 S1 has a 16-step counterbalance and enables extremely fine tuning for the camera users. The fluid head now also has a Boost Button for a quick payload range shift and is therefore not only suitable for conventional usage in the ENG areas with digital and HDV camcorders, but also suitable for DSLR camera shooting HD videos with a film-like setup and appropriate accessories.Sachtler's well-proven Speedbalance technology enables quick and fine adjustment.
