The Sachtler System Cine DSLR SL MCF is a complete support system for a video DSLR camera. The kit includes a heavy-duty 4588 Speed Lock 75 carbon fiber tripod with dual-tube leg design and a maximum height of 57.9". It's paired with a fluid head, the Cine DSLR, which supports payloads from 2-11 lb, thereby accommodating DSLR cameras with or without longer telephoto lenses. A mid-level spreader, rubber feet, and a padded bag – all designed for the Speed Lock 75 tripod – round out the kit.
Speed Lock tripods feature traditional dual-tube design with a twist – three leg clamps instead of six for rapid extension. The lightweight yet extremely sturdy carbon-fiber leg tubes absorb vibration. The 4588 Speed Lock 75 features a 75mm half-bowl for rapid leveling of the Cine DSLR fluid head, which has a corresponding 75mm bowl.
The head is built for precision moves underneath a wide range of payloads, with 10 steps of counterbalance as well as three steps of vertical and horizontal grades of drag (+0). The Cine DSLR Fluid Head weighs 4.4 lb (2 kg), and offers a tilt range of -75 to +90°. A DV 75-type pan bar facilitates movement of the head. The special DSLR camera plate features an anti-twist retainer.
- Both the head and the legs weigh 4.4 lb, for a total of 8.8 lb (not including the spreader, the feet, or the weight of the bag)
- The soft padded tripod carry bag is constructed of weather-resistant Cordura fabric. It can be carried by its interlocking handles or the shoulder strap
