Sachtler S2044-0001 overview

  • 1Description

The Sachtler SpeedLevel Clamp for Sachtler 100mm Fluid Heads is innovatively designed with squeeze handles that let you more accurately and easily level your fluid head. Instead of the traditional twisting and untwisting, the SpeedLevel Clamp loosens the head position when you squeeze the handles and sets the head in place the moment you release the squeeze.

The SpeedLevel Clamp is compatible with all Sachtler 100mm heads and supports a maximum weight of 55 lb. (Third-party heads may not be compatible because a Sachtler 10mm thread is required.)

  • Innovative squeeze/release leveling mechanism

    SpeedLevel Clamp for Sachtler 100mm Fluid Heads is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's faster, but not a whole lot faster I bought this product as a retrofit for my Sachtler Video 18 head. I am documentary filmmaker and was hoping that it would be a big time saver for me. It is and it isn't. The squeeze release is certainly faster than loosening and tightening the locking nut, but that's usually just a half turn either way, so the fact is that it's not a lot faster. The thing that really takes time is leveling the head and you still have to do that. With a heavier, fully loaded camera like I use, you still need to use both hands. I am happy with my purchase, but if it broke tomorrow, I wouldn't be rushing out to replace it and would probably just go back to the old locking nut.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is quicker Needed a new clamp in a hurry so decided to try this... does work quicker than the conventional but really you save 3 seconds. Having said that the product is great..well made and works well once you get used to it. Durability will be the true test.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid build, huge timesaver. Using this SpeedLevel Clamp with the Sachtler Ace head on the Manfrotto 535 sticks. Makes it really fast and easy to re-level the camera. I'm a documentary shooter and this is a great addition to my kit because I'm moving my tripod and leveling the head hundreds of times a day. Didn't think I'd care too much about this, now I can't live without it. Heaviest setup I've used with this clamp is a Sony FS7, with 15mm rails, Canon 70-200mm lens, follow focus, and 7 monitor from SmallHD. This clamp is able to hold all of it without any give or sliding around. Pros: -You can adjust the tension or how hard the clamp is holding your tripod head. So if you're using a heavier rig you can cinch it down a little tighter. Or if you're just shooting on a barebones mirrorless camera, you can loosen it up so adjusting the angle is even easier. -Just like the stock screw-in style clamp, it's easy to remove this altogether for disassembling the tripod (taking head off tripod). -Solidly built, the handle itself is made of composite plastic but the ball socket is all metal. Seems like it'll last a long time. CONS: -Weight limit on this may be slightly lighter than the stock clamp that came with your tripod.
