It doesn't fit  Sachtler Cine 7+7 HD Fluid Head

Although they said this speed level clamp fit all the 100 mm fluid head. But it doesn't fit my Sachtler 1910 Cine 7+7 HD Fluid Head. When I rotate the speed level clamp all the way into the bottom nail of the fluid head, It still have a big gap between the clamp and the bowl. So it can't lock. I don't know whether other fluid heads have the same problem.

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.

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.

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.

Really like it overall.

Like it, however I bought it hoping it would fit/work with my Sachtler FlowTech 75 tripod.  It wont so dont buy one with that is your hope.  I moved it on to a friend with a 100mm bowl and it works as it should there.  Sachtler needs to make one for the 75mm tripod!

Works great

question

Will this work with other tripod heads / bowls? If so will this work on a 75mm bowl?
Asked by: Andrew S.
Hi, this works only with Sachtler heads. The Sachtler 75 mm tripods are very compact and the Speedlevel Clamp does not fit when you close it for transport. Only exception are the Sachtler systems with the TT telescopic tripod
