The Sachtler 0778 Aluminum Tripod System with FSB 8 Head, ENG 75/2 D HD Legs & Mid-Level Spreader is a complete tripod system that supports cameras and accessories weighing up to 22 pounds. It includes a Sachtler FSB 8 video head, a set of Sachtler ENG 75/2 D HD aluminum tripod legs, and a mid-level spreader. The head features a 75mm ball base with integrated flat base, which allows you to use the head with the included bowl base tripod legs or mount it to available supports with flat base fittings. The camera plate is the sliding balance type and provides 4.7" of balance adjustment. The head features Sachtler's Side Load mechanism, which allows you to snap the camera plate into the head from the top, instead of having to line it up and slide it in from the back of the head. The head features a five-step counterbalance system with a zero setting. The pan and tilt feature independent locks and five grades of drag with a zero setting.

The legs feature a working height range of 22.1 to 61.0" (28.4 to 66.9" with the included head attached). Each leg is independently adjustable in height and angle, allowing you to quickly rough in your position. The included mid-level spreader features independent length adjustment of the spreader arms. These adjustments allow the tripod legs to work in oddly shaped spaces, and the system comes with three rubber feet, one for each of the dual spiked feet. The rotary leg clamps are durable and lock the leg heights quickly and securely. The included padded carry bag protects your tripod during transportation and storage.


Frictionless Leak-Proof Fluid Damping
Frictionless leak proof fluid damping with three independent levels of drag on both the pan and tilt axes, with a zero setting that allows complete disengagement of drag for fast panning/tilting.
Quick Release
The FSB 8 features Sachtler's Side-Load mechanism, which provides you the ease and convenience of a quick release system with the balance adjustment of a sliding balance plate.
Sliding Balance Plate
Sliding camera mount and plate with a 4.7" sliding range allows you to balance a wide variety of camera, lens, and accessory configurations.
Pan Handle
One pan handle is included with the system, and head incorporates a pan handle mounting rosette on both sides, allowing you to attach an additional available pan handle for dual pan handle control.

Aluminum Legs

Independent Leg Adjustment
The legs feature independent height adjustments, which allow the legs to remain stable on rough terrain.
Dual Spiked Feet
The dual spiked feet provide grip in soft surfaces, such as earth or sand, when the legs are at a normal height. The dual nature and angle of the foot spikes allows you to have grip even when the legs are spread wide for low angle shots, allow you to spread the legs wider than tripods that only have a single spiked foot.

Mid-Level Spreader

The ground level spreader features length adjustable arms that allow independent leg spread and support. The center pull ring allows you to collapse the legs and the spreader together, making it fast to set up and reposition the tripod.
Rubber Feet
The included rubber feet fit over the dual spiked feet of each leg, providing traction on hard surfaces and protecting delicate surfaces from the points of the spiked feet.

    0778 Aluminum Tripod System with FSB 8 Head, ENG 75/2 D HD Legs & Mid-Level Spreader is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2nd reviews the first one was deleted. This tripod has failed me twice - the second time after begging Sachtler for 6 months to try and fix the faulty head. No point in buying online from B&H when living overseas, they did not offer any help and directed me to Sachtler who were beyond unhelpful. This tripod failed after 2 months of ownership. So disappointed in this purchase.
