The Sachtler System 18 S1 ENG 2 D brings together the update of a classic fluid head with a quick-action, aluminum 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 ground-level spreaders and a hard carry case--will give you the quick, easy balance and flexible control you need.
- Video 18 S1 Fluid Head
- This relaunch of the legendary Video 18 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. Like its predecessor, the Video 18 S1 can also easily handle heavier ENG camcorders, with a Boost Button included for sudden shifts in payload range. Other features include 7 levels of drag, a self-illuminating bubble level, a Touch and Go plate for speedy mounting and removal, and Sachtler's already proven Speedbalance technology.
- ENG 2 D Tripod
- The ENG 2 D is a 2-stage aluminum ENG tripod that uses Sachtler's quick clamping system to let you securely--and visibly--lock the legs in a second. The tripod's double extension provides greater stability and allows extended height with a payload of 77 lb, while its folding tripod handle lets you comfortably carry the tripod in a horizontal position.
- Ground-level Spreader, Hard Case
- The included ground-level spreader ensures absolute stability on flat surfaces, while the ENG 2 hard carry case comfortably and quickly contains the whole kit for efficient transport.
