The Sachtler System Ace L TT 75/2 CF Carbon Fiber Tripod With Ace L Fluid Head is a full support system that's designed for shooting video with a compact HD or HDV/MiniDV camcorder, or a DSLR camera. It's appropriate for payloads between 0 and 13.2 lb, so most popular professional camcorders are well supported, as are accessories such as matte boxes and heavier batteries.

Two key features of the Ace L fluid head enable the execution of professional-level cinematic camera moves: balance and drag. The SA drag provides fine adjustment for precise panning and tilting, and seven steps of selectable counter-balance allow you to achieve precise balance, and stable operation. The glass fiber reinforced composite material makes the new 75mm fluid head especially light. The tilt range of the Ace L is -75 to +90°.

The Ace L head attaches to the three-section Telescopic Tripod TT 75/2 CF via a 75mm bowl attachment for professional stability and leveling. The tripod features single-tube carbon-fiber legs and magnesium die castings, for an excellent balance of light weight, good stability, and excellent load capacity. (On its own, the tripod is able to support loads up to 44 lb.)

By extending the two leg stages via the ergonomically designed, easy-to-operate flip locks, the TT 75/2 tripod reaches a maximum height of 67.3"; with the head attached, that rises to a very tall working height of 73.2". Meanwhile, the entire system weighs less than 10 lb. A padded bag is included.

For use with compact HD and similar-sized camcorders, as well as DSLRs with total payload support up to 13.2 lb

        Comments about Sachtler System Ace L TT 75/2 CF Carbon Fiber Tripod With Ace L Fluid Head:

        Despite the fact that it's Sachtler's lower-end tripod system, this is a really well built combination. The CF legs are extremely stable yet light. I chose the TT legs because I wanted to be able to get very low and very high. The head is solid, well thought-out, has plenty of counter balance and drag adjustments, completely smooth and holds the heaviest version of my rig (about 8lbs) without any problem. I'm confident it will hold 13lbs and more.

            I am carrying this tripod around while covering 3 different venues during the World Cup in BRazil. IT IS LIGHT AND GREAT!

            I have been carrying tripods for me or for other cameramen for over 12 years. Used them all...can't begin to describe my happinness at owning this tripod. Only 4 kilos but very tough at the same time.

            Does wonderful pans and tilts. It gives you different degrees of resistance.

            It has no cons that I know of. It is pricey but it is worth every penny!!!

            Comments about Sachtler System Ace L TT 75/2 CF Carbon Fiber Tripod With Ace L Fluid Head:

            I love the legs and the versatility of the head for counter balancing, but the tilt just doesn't have enough range! Even with resistance on max, it's hard to get a buttery smooth tilt. Pan is fine for some reason, even with the same number of settings. If only there was one more level of resistance on the tilt this would be perfect. But as is, I often reach for a different set unless I need the extreme portability of this set.

              I really can't say enough about this tripod. Its so lightweight, heres no problem carrying it around. And the pan and tilt are everything you would expect in a Sachtler. It makes shooting outdoors a breeze due to the spread of the legs. Plenty of extention to get those low angel/obstructed shots. You wont be dissapointed with this purchase!

                Comments about Sachtler System Ace L TT 75/2 CF Carbon Fiber Tripod With Ace L Fluid Head:

                I am an amateur film maker and this was my first quality video tripod. Before I had a [$]tripod that actually gave good smooth tilts but not pans. The Ace L is awesome! The legs are super strong and sturdy. The head is smooth as butter and I love that you can change the drag setters (I've never had that before). It balancing my DSLR just fine with absolutely no gear attached.I wanted to get a tripod with solo legs but I was nervous that they might take too long to extend and shorten. I needed not be worried. Simple latches allow fast height adjustments on the legs--no twisting locking at all! These fasters work quick and secure the legs down firm. One of the things I was interested with trying was using this tripod with the PB 3ft Pocket Dolly. With the Ace L as the only support for the slider and DSLR it didn't work as well as I'd thought it would. The tripod base was sturdy enough and I didn't worry about it tipping over as I moved the camera to the ends. The problem actually occurred at the head. Even when firmly tightened down the head would tilt slightly when the camera slid to the ends of the slider. The tilting motion wasn't much and something you could get away with if you had to in the right circumstances. I would definitely not use this set up for timelapse work as I would not feel comfortable with the moment being placed on the head for long periods of time. I'm thinking there has to be a solution to lock the head down better than tightening the rod underneath the head. Overall great tripod but I wouldn't recommend using it solo with a 3 ft slider simply b/c of the head/tripod connection not because of the sturdiness of the legs.

                  I am thrilled with my new Ace L tripod. During video shoots, I find it easy and intuitive to find the right balance point. And while this tripod provides me a sturdy and trust-worthy feeling, I can still move around easily with it--the carbon fiber is really not that heavy.
                  I can not list any negatives, because so far I have not run into any.
