With its 8.8 lb capacity and compact size, the Sachtler FSB 4 Fluid Head is ideal for supporting small handheld camcorders and video-enabled DSLRs. As the only head in its class to feature Sachtler's Snap & Go sideload mechanism, the FSB 4 boasts an exceptionally large sliding range of 120mm (4.7").

    Comments about Sachtler FSB 4 Fluid Head:

    Easy to use, easy to reach all the knobs and adjustments. Huge improvement in my video since I got this, it looks very smooth and controlled. Only gave it 4 because it's heavier than I was hoping for travel.
